Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Nose: spicy, fruity, pleasant
Palate: warm, some slight sharpness, rather a fine and thin spirit, some scent of wood maybe, not voluminous, not long lasting. But pretty sweet taste. Pleasant.
I thought this would’ve be a good Caribbean rum. Maybe my palate but I struggle to compare it to any other rum. I decided to drown it with coke. This is my first negative review. But this rum is not for me.
Nose: some butterscotch and vanilla right up front. Then a tiny bit of alcohol smell but nothing off-putting. Also some sweetness at the end which keeps lingering.
Taste: starts sweet and a bit watery. This is followed by some spices, molasses and vegetal notes. Not very complex.
Finish: taste is gone quickly after swallowing. A hefty burn follows, which stays for quite some time. Ends watery.
Final: I would recommend this more for mixing then I would for sipping. While it definitely is enjoyable neat, it doesn’t really have to offer a lot in terms of complexity or taste. This will most definitely suffice for all recipes that ask for a gold Puerto Rican rum, e.g. this makes a killer zombie.
Notes: added 3 drops of water. Also, I'm an inexpercienced taster so the details might be inaccurate, but it's still really enjoyable for my still-developing palate.
A friend bough this for me when visiting him in Austria, because he knew I was into rum. He paid 30+ euros for it, at a local minimarket. The smell invites you to taste it, only to fell the strong taste of alcohol, which takes away it's flavor. Definitely not a sipper for me. And surely will not buy again.
Lekkere warme, volle geur. Mooie kleur, wel wat licht. Met drupjes water minder scherp op de tong maar blijft wat vlak. Lekker maar minder diep en vol dan gedacht, smaak is snel weg. Eigenlijk zou 6,5 een beter cijfer zijn.
The rum is a very light pour.
The nose is unimpressive.
The mouth feel is thin.
There is a very distinct alcohol burn and limited flavours.
The rum is smooth.
The after taste is subtle and may actually be better than the taste in the mouth.
Definitely drinkable, however probably better suited as a mixer.
As a mixer it would be contributing very little in flavour profile so it would be used as a base rum or alcohol source. If all you are really using it for is as an alcohol source there are numerous less expensive choices out there.
I just got a tasting box, 6 rums under 30 euros.
Angostura 1919 was the lightest one, light smell of spiritus, not much in the mouth.
And not long lasting, but an easy sipping rum.
N- Not often rum improve with breathing, but this one an exceptional. Initially with white fruit and condensed milk + black tea, very local 'teh-xi'. Watery, mineral in the middle and molasses syrup at tail, masked with sugar on each sniff. Then ice cream soda, root beer with charred peels emerged, capped with delicious vanilla ice cream and balanced subtle wood and solvent floral notes. (87/21)
P- Sweet and subdue initially, then get whiff of medicinal along fresh pine and antiseptic nuance, sounds like detergent I know, but don't taste like it, so no worry. Semi dry, peppery and waxy, the medicinal part works well with the creamy coat. (87/21)
F- Medium, vanilla fudge, plenty of tart fruits linger, broad with good depth. (86/20)
Body/Balance:- Ordinary at the beginning, but body builds up overtimes make every subsequent sips taste better then the earlier. (87/21)
Weighted Rate:- 83pt

Last drink for tonight was a glass of Angostura 1919 Deluxe Age Blend at La Bodequita del Medio in Ciudad de Mexico. Very nice high end bottle and label design. Unfortunately such a nasty flavor profile and what a burn at the end. What a massive disappointment this rum was.
Nice to sip, with a touch of vanilla. Not as complex as top end stuff but pleasant enough for me. Didn't try it with a mixer so can't comment too far. Worth a try.
Príjemná žlto-zlatá farba, rum pekne zaiskrí v pohári. Tento rum je z kategórie mladších rumov, o čom hovorí aj svetlejšia farba. Myslím, že je 8 ročný. Vo vôni dominujú ovocné, priam citrusové tóny, pomaranče, mandarinky. V pozadí je sladká vanilková aróma. Na druhý nádych cítim višne v čokoláde...=) Celkovo veľmi pekná štruktúrovaná vôňa rumu. Chuť je nevšedná, stopy po dubovom sude, trochu vanilky. Rum je suchší na prvý dojem, v zápätí cítiť trochu cukru. Na záver sa vynárajú drevité tóny, ktoré dlho doznievajú. Je to príjemný a veľmi zaujímavý rum, ktorý odporúčam každému vyskúšať.
