Tasty, but not quite great
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.
