Angostura 1919 8-Year rum

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.

But seems to have a doctored taste, perhaps a little too sweet and vanilla but not unpleasantly so.

Zlatavá barva, středně aromstický - vůně po pomerančích a meruňkách, lehce a příjemně štiplavý, ostřejší finiš,

Color: yellow gold, Sauternes
Nose: caramel, toffee, hint of acetone, vanilla, banana bread, latex paint, rubber hose
Taste: mostly flat, earthy esp on the finish, a little metallic, slight bitterness, some nuttiness

Overall: It’s ok, but not remarkable either. Lacking depth and complexity, it’s not an ideal sipper, nor is it punchy enough to stand out in most cocktails.

This one is light amber in the glass as would be expected from less time in oak (although 8 years seems long enough to bring darker color). The nose spicier and oakier than expected with hints of vanilla, caramel, and molasses. The nose brought greater hope than was delivered on the tongue, however, with lighter flavors than were promised by the nose. The finish left me wondering about the promise of the nose once again. In balance, the overall experience left me to put this one on the back shelf until necessity (Covid-19) forced it forward. After more experience, I liked this one more and more, albeit not as much as my other favorites.

This review is for the older pictured bottle. I must say this is a decent rum all around. I had no issue finishing the bottle neat. The mouth and throat feel is incredibly nice. It has no off putting notes to it. Very well done!

I like this one, smooth with an after taste of sweetness around the lips and tongue. Some lingering after taste that I can't quite describe, but it's a good one.

One of the first sipping rums i bought. Nowadays i find the taste quite harsh compared tot Ron Abuelo or Diplomatico.

This was drinkable for sure, but outside of a lot of burn, there wasn't much complexity to the flavor or really anything going on, I felt. Good for mixing, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it.

Aroma is a bit acute. Smooth taste and solid body.

1919 célèbre la date de l'essor du rhum à Trinidad & Tobago après que des fûts aient été retrouvés au comptoir des douanes après un incendie.
