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.

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.

Smooths out when mixed, but starts out sharp. Not a ton of distinct flavors, but can catch some hints of honey and vanilla.

Dissapointed, saw this on the rum list in a bar in Shrewsbury, as not tried it before thought great a new rum on my list....glad I bought a Ginger ale and lime to mix with it as not the best sipper only good for mixing not for me but buy it and make your own decisions

Purchase a sample of this rum from Master of Malt around the £5 mark I think a bottle of this goes for around £30. The yellow hue of the liquid is refreshing.

The nose on this rum is soft and sweet with definite vanilla, but also a fresh grassiness, theres marshmallow there too with a subtle smokiness.

It's sippable but has a medium finish, it's fresh tasting, with a touch of heat. There are grassy flavours coming through (reminds me of rhum agricole), theres fruit there too peach or apricot maybe, it's not overly sweet but it's definitely there.

I look forward to sampling the 1824 next.

God smak, mycket sötma men något som skiljer den här från alla andra andra jag testat. Inte lika lång eftersmak som favoriiternaFinns en artificiell bismak någonstans som jag inte kan placera

Angosturu 1919 bych označil za opravdu klasický suchý nedoslazovaný rum. Věřím že není problém pro něj získat lepší ohodnocení, protože je to rum velmi kvalitní, ale mně to dřevo s medicínskou včelí plástvovství nesedí. Všechno toto je ale velmi uhlazené, vyzrálejší nebo prostě jen lépe uhlídané než u konkurence stejného typu.

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