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.
Cherchant des rhum des vieux et rond j'ai été un peu déçu.
Nice drop sweet with a bit of vanilla but not sickly, bit of molasses and caramel. Didnt find it outstanding but still quite good. Excellent presentation.
In der Nase frisch, Zitrone bzw. Orange. Mild, weich, leicht, fruchtig. Etwas Vanille. Nicht zu süß. Etwas Schärfe, aber sehr angenehm. Im Abgang etwas Bitterschokolade, Basilikum (?).
Hyvän makuinen, mutta terävä alkoholin potku pilaa elämyksen.
Experimente los sabores en capas ricos y suntuosos de este ron con notas sutiles de vainilla, un toque dulce de miel y un excepcional final suave. Se disfruta mejor solo a temperatura ambiente acompañado por un vaso alto de agua con gas. Beba el agua primero, para apreciar los complejos sabores de este ron
I received this as a Christmas gift in 2016 and it immediately became a top pick for me, comparable to my favourite choice Diplomatico R. E. due to its smooth caramel sweetness; however when a friend picked up a bottle based on my recommendation, we were very disappointed by the unbalanced & sharply contrasting nose and tastes of orange oils, alcohol, and sugar - almost as though a green blend somehow made its way into a bottling run. That particular bottle would have received a 4 or 5...
I was present for the opening, and have revisited it on a few other occasions just to verify it wasn't something off with the initial sampling but it's simply a bad bottle.
Other purchases of the 1919 have been good, but I'm leery now when picking one up...curious if anyone else has hit a bad batch...
Great rum for price, spicing a bit too heavy for me but not to say it's not a good rum I just prefer others
When you're only familiar without the cheaper rums that are used for the mix, this one makes quite an impression.
Angostura 1919 is een aparte rum, zeer smaakvol dient gezegd. Hij is fris en kruidig van smaak. Uiteraard heeft hij een fijne zoete smaak zoals rum betaamt. De rum zit in een mooi fles die vrij zwaar aanvoelt. Hij misstaat zeker niet op ieders dranktafel.
Tää ei mene ihan terävimpään kärkeen, mutta hintalaatusuhteessa suorastaan erinomaista!
Moins liquoreux que le diplomatico, on retrouve les arômes marqués de vanille qui font en rhum facile à boire.
Proste pecka, skvela vyvazena chut. Trochu drazsi ale.
It had a good flavor but nothing outstanding about it to move it higher in the ratings for me; especially for the price.
Verry good rum. Great tastes of vanilla and cocoa. When you open the bottle the smell alone is fantastic.
A friend gifted me a bottle of this. It was the first bottle I sipped through on the rocks with a lime. Good stuff and not harsh on the way down.
Nice sipping rum, smooth, but vanilla flavor is somewhat overpowering.
I believe this will go great at a dinner party.
This is a nice tasting rum. A little sweet with a clear taste of vanilla and little afterburn. I had it dry and also with coke, both ways didn't dissapoint. Matbe an 8 is a bit high but it's deffinitly a solid 7,5. It's a shame that old (square) bottle isn't available anymore.
I like this rum, but, I do think it has a whiskey character to it.
Très agréable et belle harmonie entre les arômes et le goût ! Excellent rapport qualité-prix ...
It seemed to be the most popular offering in the duty-free shop, so I tried a bottle. I've had better, and lord knows I've had worse! It's ok. A pleasant sweet taste but a little rough around the edges.
I consider this a very good quality rum. It has a full, semi sweet and quite earthy taste with a considerable amount of alcohol in the aftertaste.
One of my favorite rum's from Trinidad nice sipping rum.
I like this one for using in my dark and stormys and in manhattans, also really good mojitos. You can drink neat but I still prefer the 1824 it 12 year eldorado
