Smooth with a non-cloying sweetness. Reminiscent of maple syrup. My favorite go-to rum. I only have five bottles, and I don't know how I will make it last.

UPDATE: I now own 46 bottles, having cleared out the inventory of California, Arizona, and Minnesota. I'm also upgrading my rating from 9 to 10, which only stands to reason. If this is one's go-to favorite, then a 10 rating only makes sense. Otherwise, what does a "10" really mean?

Too much oak, too close to whisky for me. And way too expensive for what you get

I thought it was completely sold out in Europe, but then I found some bottles on a German site to complete my last bottle. So now I have four of it.
In the aroma you smell nuts and it’s quite sweet, but not too sweet. The taste is very smooth, len and sweet. The sweetness is a little bit alike almond paste. In the finish I believe you can recognise both apple, vanilla and chocolate.
If you get the opportunity to buy a bottle of it, don’t hesitate. BUY IT!!!
Now I also have tested the 3rd Edition but it didn’t reach the level of the 1st and 2nd.

Très bon rhum, assez similaire au 1824. Très doux et délicieux, un vrai nectar. Même si j’ai une préférence pour le 1824 qui dure plus longtemps en bouche et qui est un peu plus sec, celui ci n’en ai pas moins excellent.
Very good rum, quite similar to the 1824. Very smooth and delicious, amazing. Although I prefer the 1824 because it last longer in the mouth and is slightly drier, this one is excellent as well.

Very nice rum, but perhaps a bit too sweet for my liking. reminds me of Diplomatico reserva a exclusivo a bit.

low smell with not much tones at all..
The taste is sweet but still not sweet.. It slowly changes to a bitter taste.. And the finish is kind of raw but not with any bad tones in it.. Hard to describe and it feels like a rum that is not for everyone since it´s lean and don´t have a thick body.

One of my favourite rums, great on ice.
Just a hint of bourbon from the cask.

The vanilla that supposedly comes from 1st fill bourbon is just an artificial essence vanilla. Anyone who's tastes numerous rums and whiskies from 1st fill bourbon casks can tell this in a second. What a shame, Angostura. Absolute garbage as a rum, also sweetened, or so it feels. WHY?
