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.

One of the first aged rums I tasted as a lot of people. I still appreciate it. Of course it is certainly altered (at least with a bit of sugar...) but it does not taste as fake as plenty of other excessively sweetened (and expensive) """ premium""" rums on the market. Sweet but not sickly sweet. Not very complex but quite balanced while still a lot of flavours to enjoy. All in all, a good rum in this price range.

Un des premiers vieux rhum que j'ai goûté, un peu comme tout le monde. Ça reste un rhum industriel avec sa dose -raisonnable- de sucre et surement d'autres choses mais il ne fait pas complètement trafiqué comme beaucoup de ces rhums """premiums""" qui inondent le marché. Le sucre ne couvre pas tous les arômes et il y a encore plein de choses à sentir dedans. Je l'apprécie toujours, c'est un petit rhum très sympa à prix raisonnable, parfait pour découvrir.

The Angostura 1919  is a nice blender that works very fine in different cocktail and drinks. I prefer this rum with Coca Cola and lots of ice.
I tried to drink it neat but don´t think it´s good enough. Sweet with vanilla, fruit and some oak but too much sticky alcohol and spice. This rum is a bit too harsh to drink neat, in my opinion.
But when I mix it - I love it :)

Great for sipping, great for mixing, and lovely on the tongue.

Probably one of the most famous old rum over the world. As many others mentioned before, this Angostura is a good door to the magic world of the old rums.
Not too expensive and easy to drink it's a good rum, but far from being as surprising as the Arcane Extraroma from Mauritius or even not as well balanced as the Clement 6 years Old.

A good rum to use as a standard benchmark. Nice aroma with a simple and uncomplicated flavour.

Sehr gut gemachter Rum aus Trinidad.
Nicht sehr anspruchsvoll in Nase und Gaumen,
aber ein durchaus süffiger Rum für alle Tage.

Very well made rum from Trinidad.
Not very demanding in nose and palate,
But a very tasty rum for all days.

this one rates low every time the boys get together. maybe angostura makes good rum, but buy a different one from their catalogue. not memorable.

I usually mix my rums with orange juice or pineapple, but with this; I drink it straight. It is just that smooth. I thought my Mount Gay was the best, but we have new winner. There are hints of oak, and vanilla. I truly enjoy it, please try.
