Mit einem Angostura macht man generell nichts falsch. Dieser reiht sich nahtlos ein.
A tasty rum for sipping, I would rate it as average. Well worth a test.
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.
I think it is best rum from angostura. Much taster than 1824
Dark rich color, great taste and aroma. Can simply enjoy on the rocks.
This is TT's best widely available rum. Nice body, good to drink neat, not overly sweet.
Good flavour smooth taste smells strong. Good barrel taste
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)
Weighted Rate- 78pt

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.

I didn’t think Angostura could do better than 1824, but... here we are. A very smooth, sippable 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.
While the color of the pour in my snifter looks like right out of a photo shoot, the taste will deliver as it harmonizes all senses with a generous finish. A treat to have in my cigar room bar and almost in need of replacing already. If there is an Armagnac of rums, this might be the one. Just say yes.
Doftar välbalanserad, inte för söt men ändå inbjudande, smaken sviker lite, slår igenom lite grappatoner.
Angostura 1787 claims to be a 15 year old rum, but unfortunately there are easily three dozen better 15 year old rums out there. In isolation the Angostura 1787 is not a bad rum at all, but far from great also. The 1787 is much better than the 1919 or 1824 rums from Angostura, but after well over 300 aged rums later, I'm not a big fan of the Angostura family of rums. 1787 barely scores a five for me, so it is way over rated rum in my opinion.
Le 1919 m avait bien plus. J ai voulu passer à celui ci. Attention, il ne plaira pas à tous car il a le goût typique dés rhum de trinidad.
I had this side by side with the Angostura 1824, as they are both priced similarly (this costs just a little more).
This has more oak than the 1824, and is slightly dryer as a result, but it is still sweet.
Smells and tastes of molasses, oak, honey, and spice. Between this and the 1824, I'll give the ever so slight edge to the 1824, as I like sweeter less oaked rums.
But this is another fine rum by Angostura!
