The Angostura 7-year has a bit of a Cherry note on the tongue. It is caramel in color and appeals to the eye. By itself it fills flavor on the tongue but the flavor fleets quickly and does not envelop the mouth as other full-bodied rums do. This mixes well with fruit juices and angostura bitters for some great tiki drinks though!
Nutty burnt caramel aroma, "fiance adds sharpie to the smell", light brown rummy color, taste is smoother than some, coats the tongue, light hints of cherry. Nutty/oakey finish. Mixes really well, and pairs with bitters.
Got this in my local store in a good price with an Angostura jigger, I bought it for a friend's party.
Didn't have a chance to enjoy it "solo", but let me tell you, every drink with this 7yo was a bomb. Plain, sweet, trueschool rum. No deep flavours - but no harsh nose or mouth.
I would definitely buy this in the future.
Light vanilla nose. Subtle caramel that moves on to spices and finishes with vanilla for me. As good on its own as it is mixing.
Light golden brown colour. Some apricot, bread, and maybe a hint of candied citrus on the nose. On the tongue it is dry, with some burnt sugar appearing. Somewhat of a bitter taste that I cannot place appears as well. Just enough burn going down to make it worthwhile. Mixes well with some ginger beer. But not good enough on its own to be a bargain sipper like El Dorado 12 or Havana Club 7,
