Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
it is trying to be like classic rum, you can feel the oak sly, with karmel a bit, toffee, vanilla, cherry, long alcohol finish, also you will be hited by spice, paper or tabaco, or its just heavy oak :) do not recommend for beginners, even not worth to try for that price
I think I've tried nearly all of the Angostura range and was expecting big things of their oldest rum. Nice boxed packaging , good looking bottle etc.
Poured a dark mahogany colour which was due to caramel colouring unfortunately and not barrel aging..
Sipped fine , quite sweet as now expected.. but no real rum flavours getting past the caramel like so many adulterated rums out there.
I might occasionally sip this or add an ice cube but im already thinking.. mixer !
The name, age and colour elude to grandeur, but I've smelt more appealing glues and I'm not into my solvents as some might be. The taste is even worse. Even when mixed that chemical "Epoxy" taste perseveres.
Seriously, Angostura: IMPROVE! The fake vanilla (which is miles off from what you get from an oak cask naturally - more like bakers fake essence vanilla) is TERRIBLE. And the oak, where is it? 15 years in the tropics, no oak? Stop the excessive charcoal filtration. Rubbish.
First, it is a shame that Angostura changed the bottle type and replaced the cork with a valve and a regular cap. Just by presentation, this rums should score very low. Regarding the rum, it has a caramel and fruity smell, and almost no alcohol. In mouth you can taste prune, vanilla, caramel and the oak. You could say it is at the same level of sweetness as the El Dorado 12. Aftertaste is oaky.
Testade denna på Birkas romkryssning 2019 och den här passade inte min smak. En dominerande smak av bränt gummi fick mig och min sambo att hälla ut den.
Perfection! Smooth from the 1st sip to the last drop,no bitter oily or chemical after taste, love everything about this rum, haven’t found a 15 year old rum to match this one yet!
This was a new experience. The first thought, when putting the glass under my nose, was pitch pine. Then some dried fruit and oak. Taste is a bit strong, smokey and spicey, but smoother in the aftertaste, and it lasts for a long time.
Darker color and distinguishable presence. Smooth all the time yet specific one. Caramel flavour in in the body. Gets smoother in the aftertaste.
I don’t think that I have tested a rum with a taste comparable with this one before. I’m not sure what it is, maybe grapefruit or citrus. Anyway the Angostura has made it again. The 1787 is on their No 1 level.
I have now also tested the new No 1 (Ed3) and I must say it’s not coming up to the same level as the earlier No 1’s and the 1787.
Picture: My Angostura shelf
N- Initial nutmeg that leads you into tropical fruit farm filled with ripe fruits, soothing and comfort aroma of maple, liquorice, banana and passionfruit rising from the glass. Thought a tad of nasty brown sugar in the middle but still pleasant. Peach-ed marsala tea. (86/20)
P- Spices, toasty with coat of bitter sweet toffee. Floral and fruit nuances linger with canned fruits, apricot and peach of that sorts. Wee thin on body, a bit stingy as this supposed their very top range. (86/20)
F- Short-medium, remain waxy, buttery with mouthwatering spicy oak. Short of width, drowned with dilution. Could be better (85/19)

Schönes helles Mahagoni im Glas.
In der Nase dominiert das Karamell, Früchte und Holztöne begleiten das Ganze.
Im Gaumen sehr weich und elegant wie ein Sahnebonbon mit Karamellkern, sehr süss.
Der Abgang schön lang und langsam ausklingend.
Ein gutgemachter Rum um eine guten Tag ausklingen zu lassen. Für Liebhaber von leicht süssem Rum.

Beautiful light mahogany in the glass.
Caramel dominates the nose, fruits and wood tones accompany the whole thing.
Very soft and elegant on the palate, like a creamy candy with a caramel core, very sweet.
The finish beautifully long and slowly fading away.
A well-made rum to end a good day. For lovers of slightly sweet rum.

The oak taste surprised me a little the first time i treid it ... But i gave it a chance ... The oak taste turns in to a sweet taste of fruit
Thick molasses, toffee sweetness with a touch of funky/ sourness from long fermented rum which I enjoy very much. Toasted oak and pop corn with caramel coating.
Less charred notes compare to Angostura 1824 which makes it light but flavourful toffee sweetness, dried prunes and unripe peach.
Finishing was a surprise which is woody and pretty fruity, perhaps it's from the aging which I enjoy very much.
