Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This review is for the old bottling pictured here. I must say for a white rum this has some character and is easily sipped. It really goes down well and has some mild complexity though the finish is rather short lived.
Nothing special, but what can you expect from the white rum ?!
Nose: A bit of new oak, reminiscent of young fruit brandies. No great bouquet to mention in that it is anonymous, there is a slight hint of coconut shell and mint.
Palate: Accentuated coconut, grassy hint of cane a bit unusual to molasses rum, some mint. There is also a subdued, funky note of fruity esters revealing that this is not made by purists of the Spanish style, but there is just a pleasant hint of it that will not offend anyone. Warm, slightly oily mouthfeel; dry, maybe a gram or two with added sugar per liter I'd suspect.
Aftertaste: No great aftertaste, a bit oak and grass turned slightly chemical, but not unpleasant.
Overall a very nice mixer that should not scare away anyone whilst also providing a bit of character. Great for mojitos, daquiris, communal punch bowls or any highball/simple drink calling for unspecified white rum. This is hardly a sipper, my rating is certainly based on a consideration of the low price as well as quality. But if you want to try a charcoal filtered, aged rum, this is a way better option than Diplomatico Planas in my opinion, and the latter cost twice as much.
Not so bad white rum. It's light and refreshin' with easy aroma of green banana and young grass. But it is so young to drink it neat due to strong alcohol taste. Anyway Angostura Reserva is excellent rum for many cockatals for those it was intended to.
Had a glass of Angostura White Reserva at La Bodequita del Medio in Ciudad de Mexico. Boring bottle and label design. Very offputting industrial strength cleaner product straight to your nose and palate. Its awful even when mixed.
Nose: fresh cane, flowers, ethanol.
Palate: bitter and a little bit oiliness, sweetness, astringency.
I find it well-conducted and smooth.
Surprisingly approachable. Excellent choice for Daiquiris or Mojitos.
Nicely priced with a good taste. Hints of citrus, oak and nut but with some burn and the flavors are not very complex due to the age of this rum. Makes a nice mixer...
Nothing special but with Coke even better than Bacardi...
Très basique et sans complexité. Nez et saveur sur des fruits à coques (noisette, amande). Pas du tout agressif mais aucun intérêt à être bu seul.
Fin rom som jeg kan anbefales at prøve.. drikkes mest is eller rent.
Super lækker Rom som jeg varmt vil anbefale, skal blandes med cola og med isterning
Not a bad choice for your bar for its price. It does it job as good mixer tho i would not recommend to drink on its own.
For some occasions a white Rum is needed. Basically in my mind (so far) there is two.
Has a little alcohol burn. But i like the fresh and fruity hints.
This is a more flavorful version of Bacardi silver.
This is a strange rum, because I don't think I'd hand out a 6 to anything that wasn't at least passable for sipping. This one, however, is too astringent for my tastes for sipping, yet it's pretty decent in a Daiquiri or Mojito. The bonus is, it's cheaper than what I was using before, but I never really used my previous one for sipping anyway, so it's fine by me to use this one.
Color : Clear
Flavour : Light citrus note with some apple hint.
Palate : Light, clean and short
A good white rum to blend in cocktail such as Honey combs Mojito & Daiquiri.
