Angostura 1919 rum is produced in Trinidad by blending a combination of light and heavy molasses distilled rums. These rums spend at least 8 years aging in American oak bourbon barrels.
The name Angostura "1919" refers to the event in 1932 when Angostura's distillery was destroyed by fire. Miraculously, a handful of barrels filled with rum from 1919 survived and were purchased by J.B. Fernandes - the master blender of Fernandes Distillers.
I like the flavor of this rum over the rocks. This is one of my current favorites.
this is a sweet strong tasting rum with caramel and vanilla aftertaste,nice as a sipper but also with coke and ice.
Spicy, vanilla, and woodsy, this fragrant rum is a man's drink. Great finish.
A deliciously sweet rum with vanilla & caramel flavours. This could be a little too dessert-like for some but I found it to be lovely especially with a cube of ice. Very easy to drink and makes a great sipper.
I have been a rum drinker my whole adult life, and now that I have past the 70 mark I seem to have mellowed. This may not be the best I have ever tasted, but it has that calm, fruity, hint-of-honey character that makes it perfect for sipping while stretching your legs in an easy chair in the tropical evening breeze.
Su sabor es único, se agradece su personalidad. Es un ron que se tiene que probar!

Angostura 1919 40% Trinidad
Eye: Thin gold
Nose: It introduces itself as a sober-minded, level-headed, fruity, sweet and flowery rum with scents of custard, pineapple, almond flakes, sawdust from silver birch, ripe exotic fruit compote, butter, panna cotta, fat green shoots and banana liquor. Very pleasant but also rather predictable, uninteresting on the verge of being boring. Still refreshing and somewhat appealing.
Mouth: Restrained and consistent with some well hidden qualities. It puts on an almost neutral impression but some flavors are taking the lead, these are mango, cinnamon, hazel nut and almonds. There are also some side tracks with citrus that lingers throughout the whole palate. It is quite tasty actually and offers a consonance of sweetness, flora and fruit. A little oak contributes to the finish which is medium long. I like it but it is too …low key and careful to leave a lasting impression.
Reaction: The smell is nice, nothing to complain about. On the palate it is nice, nothing to complain about. Even the color is nice with nothing to complain about. The question is: if I am going to team up with this one for a whole evening, what are we going to talk about? Thumbs up for this easy pleaser. The price is also right.
Price: 389 SEK
Tasted: 2016, in a Riedel Sommelier Cognac XO glass at room temperature.
The aroma out of the bottle indicates this to be a sweet rum and this is confirmed upon first taste. I get immediate vanilla and butterscotch flavors before the burn begins. Definitely a good sipping rum and also works extremely well in Coke Zero (which is how I prefer it). Also I enjoy 3 ounces of the rum added to a 12 ounce bottle of Florida orange juice. Nice.
This is a great rum to have with an exotic meal. Not an everyday Rum, but a special occasion drink. Very robust Oak.
ANGOSTURA 1919... väärt rumm mille maitse ja aroom on lihtsalt nii head.... Sa avad korgi ilusal kandilisel pudelil ja need meeldivad tammevaadi aroomid ja see tammine maitse... Hind 30 euro kanti pole sugugi palju selle nektari eest. Nautle puhtalt jää ja laimiviiluga. Ja cocacola jäta kohe kindlalt capten morgani jaoks!!!!!
A rum that should be in every amateur bar. Taste is vanilla like and not too alcoholic, be careful you could drink it like milk it's so good!
très agréable. Ala fois suave et complexe, toi étant assez sec. Me correspond. Une valeur sur.
Smooth, nice aroma ... Nice sipper . bourbon taste
hummmmmmmmmmmm la vanille
Equilibré, doux, vanille au nez, vanille en bouche ! ;)
Because of its vanilla flavour maybe not a good choice for all occasions but as a replacement for a dessert a good one.
Very nice when mixed. Goes down all too easy.
Un incontournable dans une cave ! Un rhum a deguster de toute urgence !
Nicely subtle flavor, very smooth. And what a cool bottle!
Un rhum parfait pour se lancer dans la découverte des rhums vieux. Excellent rapport qualité prix pour ce rhum à la couleur or possédant un nez vanillé très prononcé. En bouche on retrouve la vanille avec de légères pointe d'épices en milieu de bouche.
Really great rum that is very drinkable and has a fantastic bottle
Mild spicy scent sweet heavy vanilla and caramel flavor mildly fruity
I bought the 1824 first, so this is a step down for it. However, it is still very good in its own right. I have no problem sipping on either.
