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!
My first reaction to this rum was that it had so much tropical fruit flavor that it's practically its own cocktail. Not too sweet, not too much oak. A lovely new offering from the House of Angostura, of which I am an ardent fan. The best of their regular line, in my opinion, though I still am fond of other smaller-edition independent bottlings. The flavor here is very compelling, and worth the effort of obtaining a bottle.
Well balanced taste with a long and crisp finish. Rich mahogany color with bronze highlights. Sweet aroma of bananas and dried fruits.
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.
Angostura is broad in the way that they produce its Rums, with big viarity you can find round and smoth products and some more dry oaky. This is long fiinish with some oak in it.
When I try a new bottle of Angostura, I'm always a bit exited, cause I feel there's big variety in taste among there labels. The 1787 is no different, with a unique profile in the range.
The nose surprises me, and the first thing that comes to my mind is Caroni. It has full, sweet notes of butterscotch, candied, baked banana and vanilla, but also an unmistakable note of that deep, tarry and oaky petroleum. The composition is very inviting and mouth watering. In the mouth the rum feels balanced and opens sweet with toffee, banana and dried prunes, going into oaky and slightly petroleum like caroni notes, but not in a overpowering way. Overall it's a sweet rum, that could perhaps have been more exiting with less sugar and slightly more %alc., but that's probably mood dependent, and I still enjoy this one quite a bit actually (8,5).
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.

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.
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
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!
Riche et subtil avec des arômes de mélasse et de vanille. Rond et onctueux sur des saveurs de miel, de fruits et de chocolat avec une finale longue et suave avec de belles notes de fruits.
Taste....slight burn but satisfying once swirled. Hints of rum and more rum. Authentic rum flavour not too sweet but in no way bitter. Great as a mixer or straight. If drunk straight recommend little or no ice. Mixes well with coca cola and LLB (lemon lime and bitters)
