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
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.
Il packing e' veramente bello , agli occhi si presenta con un bel colore oro ,al naso si percepiscono i sentori della melassa con la presenza di una parte di vaniglia e banana, in bocca le aspettative percepite nell'olfatto si ripresentano nuovamente ed il sapore e' accompagnato dal gusto lieve e dolce che non persiste troppo al lungo, il finale non rimane prepotente ma abbandona la bocca lasciando un ricordo gradevole del suo passaggio.
This is a very good rum. It is a light amber color and a sweet flavor. My only problem is it does have a little harshness in the finish. Adding in 1 ice cube solves this.
This is actually a pretty decent rum. It's smooth all the way through--nothing harsh whatsoever. It is, however, a little on the fruity side, and that is probably where I go a different way. It's not that I don't like fruity tasting beverages (I actually like a berry-nuanced Ethiopian Yirgacheffe), but this rum doesn't make me jump up and down. That doesn't mean you won't like it, though. If I'm out or over at someone's place, I won't hesitate to have it.
I bought the 1824 first, so this is a step down for it. However, it is still very good in its own right. I have no problem sipping on either.

"The rum is very smooth with notes of oak, cocoa and vanilla. Perhaps a little banana but very subtle."
