Not bad. Just starting out. So a good starter rum. Had it on rocks. Took a bit to come in but after a bit was really smooth.
I could say that is a going well with coke, but man, for the price range you should find something else without coke
Final verdict: I will not buy it again
If you like the unmistakable unique taste of Angostura rums, then go for whichever one of them your budget can afford. This one was $28. I personally think that their 1919 represents the best value and taste. This line of rums clearly falls into the Love Them Or Hate Them category.
After giving the Angostura 5-year a "7" I feel a "7" is applicable to the Angostura 7-year rum. However consider it more of a 7 for the 5-year and a little over a 7.5 for the 7-year. It's just a tad bit better.
It has a slightly darker amber color as compared to its younger sibling and has a more appealing aroma. Its flavor has that oak tones from the barrels in which it was aged. However the extra aging has caused it to cross over the line, albeit barely, into sipping territory. Definitely smoother with the vanilla and caramel tones as well as butteriness element. There some spiciness to it as well. Doesn't have as much of a burn as its younger sibling.
A very versatile rum enjoyable in mixed drinks, colas, on the rock, and even straight up.
For the price I got this bottle, I can get better value. As a sipper try the 1919. As a mixer there are better ones for a lower price. All in all I don't see a market for this bottle.
While not approaching the 1824 and 1919 expressions, the 7 years old is a fine everyday sipper on ice.
Not overly bold, there are some mellow burnt sugar, spice and marshmallow notes present with a warm creme brûlée finishing off the taste.
I will definitely keep this stocked in my person shelf - especially as a trainer for those beginning to appreciate sipping rum rather than guzzling it.
I`ve had a lot of great cocktails with it at various rum and cocktail events but that said, it`s a bit too sweet and a cocktail almost always contains syrup of some kind, so a sweetened rum too in the drink is "cake on cake" to me and not needed.
Na początku nie mogłem sobie wyrobić zdania na temat tego rumu. Podchodziłem z przerwami kilkukrotnie do niego, jednak w końcu złapałem jego smak. Za te pieniądze to dobry rum!
