Angostura 1919 8-Year rum

Angostura 1919 8-Year

Trinidad and Tobago | Aged

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.

Taste is not so good as smell, but still very decent rum, great for mixing.

Of course, there are much better premium rums out there. Though 1919 is the rum for me that one can always pour. No matter the occasion, day in the week. So, not the best I've ever tasted, or will taste in the future, but a rum that goes well at any given time. And that means a lot. From all West Indies rums (WIRSPA), this is nr 1.

Excellent aroma with above average taste and finish. Picked up caramel and vanilla.

He podido probar un tasting de este ron de trinidad y tobago, para mi sorpresa mejor de lo que me esperaba, de color dorado y olor dulce a caramelo y cafe, sabor ligero, sin grandes matices, naranja, cafe, postgusto corto y algo acido, pese a su precio apruba con un 7.

The taste, the aftertaste. The aroma. The texture. Best rum found so far.

A lot like vizcaya however it's more oaky and burns more. Very simple rum but makes a solid rum and coke.

Velmi ojedinělý rum, nikoli náhodou vyvinutý místním lékárníkem. Chuť je značně neobvyklá a připomíná jakýsi žaludeční likér s pomerančovým vyzněním (arci nikoli jako v nechutně chemickém duchu Pyratu).
V původní, neodolatelné tlustostěnné láhvi, připomínající přerostlý kalamář, mělo smysl ji udržovat v lihotéce třeba místo Praděda či Fernetu už jako příjemný objekt na mazlení; nové balení tento půvab postrádá.
Na výlet do Trinadu je ale třeba Plantation Trinad 2003 (a asi i jakýkoli jiný ročník) doporučitelnější - obsahuje vlastně totéž maso, ale s pestřejší oblohou.
Zajímavé je, že tu v tom všichni cítí vanilku - buď známe úplně jinou vanilku, nebo jsme pili úplně jinou Angosturu...

Way too much vanilla. Noxious.

The taste is hard to explain. Definitely dry, quite light. Chemical (like if someone dumped too much vanilla extract).

I’m insulted by the idea that somebody thought they could pass this off as genuine rum. It's unacceptable for a rum to be this blatantly perfumed. I'll spend more time trying to figure out how to get rid of the bottle then actually drinking it. Garbage.
