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.

Better than the 7 year old angostura, hints of caramel mostly, but also this quite uncomforting taste of gasoil, not my cup of tea, better than the 7 year old though

Fairly dry, slightly spicy rum with hints of smoke. Just about ok for sipping

I really enjoyed this rum. At first I thought the molasses was a bit much but there is a lot going on in the rum. Straight up on ice.

J'aime vraiment bien ce rhum, assz doux mais beaucoup d'arome comme la vanille

At the tasting, the pourer skipped the 5 and 7-years and went straight to this. It tastes about as you would expect... caramel, hint of tobacco. Could serve well as an upscale mixer or easy sipper.

Interestingly, the pourer stressed that Angostura adds no color or sweeteners to their rum, which I believe is commonly known to be untrue. I'd like to dock a point for uninformed/misleading brand ambassadors, but this really is a rum with no surprises, and holds its own.

Might I suggest a 2070 Swizzle?

7, 7+

Lite för anonym för min smak ingen riktig upplevelse måste jag säga, å den står där i Romskåpet å samlar damm. Men kanske i framtiden att jag provar av den igen.

Bought the new bottle in a very nice box. The new bottle was fancy. Dissapointed that it not had a cork to seal it with though. This is an okey rum. Smooth oak aroma with vanilla, exotic fruits and citrus. The taste have a little sharpness to it like a blended scotch whiskey with vanilla and citrus as it's maine flavours. The price is a little high on it. I drank it as a sipper.

Medium gold-amber colour; exquisite/complex aromas of toasted oak, with layered notes of tobacco leaf,vanilla and dried flowers; dry but rounded and smooth on the palate, medium bodied, with flavours of vanilla, toasted wood,too much burn for a smooth finish.

It's a really nice rhum but some rums to me when it first enters the mouth but has a slight whiskey aftertaste (probably my taste buds). I would not say its bad just not for me, although I did drink the whole bottle with the help of my friend ice cube.
