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.
Tasty, but not quite great
I was given 2 bottles of this years ago by a Trini friend and fell in love with the taste. Not the smoothest you can buy but many many people love this rum great served neat or the best I ever had mixed when I was at the Hilton Fete in Trinidad for my first Carnival. When I do a rum tasting with friends I give a glass of pepsi on the side to wash the flavours, with 1919 you can taste the cinnamon and ginger only after you take a sip of pepsi. This is my favourite back up rum of choice and always have a few bottles on hand.
Color : Gold
Flavour : Caramel, chocolat, vanilla and some wood
Palate : Creamy & melow, mid bodied.
It's a nice & elegant rum.
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 :)
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.
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.
