Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
I will usually drink spirits neat or on ice, this rum is falls into the ice category. There is so much to this rum that promises, oak nose, sweet aroma with vanilla and butterscotch, even a little tang to the tongue, but there is a harshness that I cannot identify making me want to put this on ice.
Bottle: A very nice looking bottle but a little lacking in label and distillery details. Looks good on the shelf but not interesting when picked up.
Color: Very light brown
Bottle Aroma: Light rum nose with a little bit of oak, and some spicy notes of vanilla, maple, and more biting ones, which comes as a pleasant surprise.
Glass Aroma: Sweet on the nose but the rum disappears in a small glass, I use a small flute and a cognac glass would better capture the bouquet.
Taste: Not initially warm as the oils coat the tongue, allowing tasting the oak very strongly, warms up and has a smaller effect in the mouth with the flavors than is caught in the bottle.
This might appeal to some palates but not to mine. I have it on the shelf and have noticed that guests enjoy the nose of this rum as much as I do but do not desire a second sample.
Because of its vanilla flavour maybe not a good choice for all occasions but as a replacement for a dessert a good one.
Very nice and tasty sweet rum with vanilla notes and maybe a little alcoholic to me. Very good rum for the price.
my friend showed me this rum and asked what i thought the price was. offcouse i was suprised. the bottle and taste cheated me.
nose is vanilla og and maybe a little alcoholic but not in a bad way
tase is wooden, vanilla, sweet and a little caramel.
very good valuerum
That's the word that came to my mind when I opened the bottle for the first time. So sweet and rich to the nose! Then, in the mouth, you do remember that it's rum and not syrup... Tasty but fiery! A revelation...
Perfect for a first experience of rhum. Vanillla & Caramel flavour. Very Sweet flavour.
This rum has such an oaky taste that the first time I tried it my description was "it tastes like you are licking the deck of an pirate ship" and I meant that in a good way. I still love to sip this rum but I buy it less since it's price went up by about $5.
God rom som jag gärna dricker. Jag känner en arrak smak som ibland kan vara lite för mycket
The nose was fine. Free from ethanol Nice clear caramel tone to it.
The taste has a whole lot of alcohol in it.. But there is rum..
The finish is packed with alcohol but it fades out and leaves you with loads of tones..
Just caramel and vanilla.
Very very simple.
It's nothig bad but you will not remember this rum for long...
Good solid rum with lots of vanilla. I prefer this one on the rocks with limes or with coconut water.
The bottle that this rum comes in is nice. It is typically to one you would expext to see on an old time rum ship. Short and squat.
The rum will grow on you, it is not a sweet rum. If you like your dry this is for you, it has an oak and vanilla aftwr taste rhat lingers for a while.
Mixed with coke the vanilla works well a bit like a subtle vanilla alcoholic coke.
Not a sipper for me as I like my rum sweet. It is smooth and the after burn is not bad either for a rum of this price.
Worth owning and one you would not mind mixing with coke.
imho this is a far more complex rum than the 1824, which is a lot sweeter. Excellent sipper.
hummmmmmmmmmmm la vanille
Equilibré, doux, vanille au nez, vanille en bouche ! ;)
Une valeur sure, a essayer absolument. Il fait clairement partie de mes favoris
I have quite a few friends from the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. They introduced me to this rum. It has good color and a level of smoothness, but it could have a better finish
Really great rum that is very drinkable and has a fantastic bottle
Excellent cocktail rum, ok as a sipper but the 1824 is better. I don't really drink this as a sipper as there are a lot more rums out there that are far better for same or not much more cash
Un incontournable dans une cave ! Un rhum a deguster de toute urgence !
Nice to have and share find a little to strong much vanilla taste for my liking
Mild spicy scent sweet heavy vanilla and caramel flavor mildly fruity
God hverdags rom til billige penge.
næste rom blir nok 1824.
This is becoming more and more common in bars as we move forward in becoming adventuress....
It is a strong rum, warming though not burning with raw alcohol. I like it either neat as a warmer or with lime and apple juice.
I don't drink many light or golden rums but I have tried enough to know this is far from a good example.
Taste: Lots of sugar, vanilla.
Body: All in the front with that sugar. After-taste is a little bitter.
Very expensive (44 Canadian) for a sub-par product (in my opinion)
