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.
Semi sweet, undescibeable tase and nose... more like flower and nutmeg nose and taste. Not for everyone.
Un beau rhum facile à siroter, on est sur le sucre brun, la vanille. Une bonne alternative, un bon point de comparaison, avec un diplomatico, en un poil moins souple.
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!
Packaging, cork and bottle are magnificent at it's price point. Absolutely worthy of a premium rum twice as expensive.
The scent is sweet and promising. Regrettably it tastes very floral - something I personally don't like.
Nose: definitely vanilla, very easy to catch. Basic rum taste, not very complex aftertaste.
très agréable. Ala fois suave et complexe, toi étant assez sec. Me correspond. Une valeur sur.
Har indtil videre kun prøvet den ren. Efter min mening lidt for sprittet, men med en god eftersmag!
Soft and smokey taste, Sweet after taste. Vanilla Bouquet. Nice Bottle with real Quork
DId not expect anything out of this one. But quite a great suprise. Vanilla,butterscotch, a pleasant oakiness, medium finish. I really enjoyed thia one.
I had the chance of getting this nice one as a present for my Bday. Straight up with on a rock has been the best so far.
Really smooth flavors and easy drinking. Didn't try the 1824 yet but I belive this one is a nice entry point.
As a classic I had to try it, while being in spain I bought a few rum bottles including a 1919. Good one but miss something for me.
The 1824 is better for sipping straight up, but this is still very delicious.
Bonne entrée en matière, fort sur la vanille et le toffee, mais je n'y reviendrait pas pour une deuxième bouteille, trop de meilleur choix dans le même budget
A nice rum for sipping and I guess mixing
Smooth with a nice aftertaste
Smooth, nice aroma ... Nice sipper . bourbon taste
helt fin rom, men den mangler noget kompleksitet, og er lidt for kedelig.
really nice rum. Nice taste Of vanille, oak, honey and grapes. Not real complex one flavours are easy to find. It's a good rum who does the job.
Not sweet like the 1824, but a good basic sipping rum for every day use. On ice.
I was given this rum as a gift and the bottle is very beautiful.
The taste however is way to heavy on vanilly making it almost nauseatingly to drink straight up.
It might do better in a dark n' stormy, but as a rum to drink straight up it's just not that good.
Taste like fine expensive rum diluted with water. Expensive mixer.
Admittedly I don't drink many 8 year old rums neat; usually I at least throw in one ice cube.
But 1919 is great on its own. I love the smell (citrus, butterscotch and spice)
and the taste is similar (orange peel, butterscotch and mild tobacco)
The finish is spicy but not overly spicy.
This is one of my everyday types of rum because it is relatively inexpensive and tasty.
Ce rhum est une belle alternative aux autre diplomatico ou don papa dans les entrées de gamme. Plus sec et moins sucré.
Pour les fans de rhum faciles.
This is a good sipper. Smooth and Sweet. But this the last price increase this bottle is now around 30 € in Germany and in this price area one can get better bottles. A few years ago, when it was an around 20 € bottle it was a good value.
An okay rum, but I find it a bit chemical in the aftertaste.
