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.
A lot like vizcaya however it's more oaky and burns more. Very simple rum but makes a solid rum and coke.
Lovely smelling notes of toffee and vanilla in this rum. A slight harsh alcoholic burn in the throat of this one. Wouldn't be my go to rum of choice but worth a go if you haven't tried it before.
I've turned a few whiskey drinkers with this who say they don't like rum, if your a single malt fan I urge you to try this, true it's not as smooth as many rums but easily outshines some single malts. It's smooth with a little after burn but not much
, woody with a hint of vanilla a great all rounder mixed or sipped over one piece of ice, you can certainly buy worse at this price
Since first trying this rum in Tobago, I have always been impressed by the silky quality of a glass of 1919.
Lite torr, mycket vanilj, kryddig, salnar lite fyllighet.
Very good craftmansip for a pleasant and smooth spice rum. Recommended, especially suitabel for ladies who doesent like harsch spirits.
It has a pleasant vanilla and oaky nose. Light collor and not over done with molasses.
Sweet, nice bottle, nice color. A good one to give to people who wants to discover ron
good to sip, good to mix and goes down very easy as its nice and smooth.
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.
Damn good distillery. For the money this is great. Gutted sainsbury stopped stocking it. 7.5.
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
One of the first rums I tasted and it’s still pleasing me. Today I think there is too much taste of arrack. If I want arrack I buy arrack. I will taste together with pea soup and see how it feels. Anyway it’s nice to have it in the rombar together with the other Angosturas when it’s in the old bottle.

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.
Light chocolate flavor. Very smooth
A bit sweet for my taste.
Overall a good rum
Nice vanilla flavor and not too harsh, but doesn’t have the complexity of some other drinking rums.
It’s was my first rum to really drink straight and appreciate. Smooth with a hint of vanilla. Started trying other rums out and comparing but I always come back to this original. It’s also inexpensive.
A solid rum that leaves a pleasant after taste. Smoothe with little afterburn. A solid rum that should please most rum mouths.
Il vous apportera tout ce que vous recherchez : des notes de caramel, puis plus gourmandes sur le cacao ou le chocolat. Un des tous meilleurs.
A nice rum to sip or mix. Not my best but still pleasent.
Rhum très parfumé, aux arômes de noisette, gâteau fruits. Nez très suré.
A unique flavor and light colour. Very nice bottle. Great rum to enjoy any way your want!
Having tried Angostura 7-Year several years ago, I was not at all pleased with it and told myself that they should just stick to making great bitters. After reading through these reviews, I have decided that this $33 bottle is the best way to try them again. Their 1824 would run me another $24 and I was not about to take that risk for something marginally better. This time I don't regret buying it.
The aroma is of some type of exotic mint with a pleasant smooth sensation on the tongue. Going down the pipe feels like vanilla mixed with some exotic Trinidad spices. Very different and very pleasant. A nice surprise. For those who like to mix their rums, ginger ale is a match made for this one.
