Drinks more like a bourbon or whiskey than a rum, which caught me off guard.
Smells strongly of demerara, milk chocolate, white chocolate, vanilla.
Very smooth, sugary flavor carries through. Earthy and a bit peaty on the finish with notes of bitter dark chocolate.
Good mixer, bit rough to drink neat.

It's hard to drink it neat. A flavourful rum best served mixed with cola or ginger ale.

Aromatic with light woody notes of coconut, caramel, lemon, and vanilla. The taste contains nuances of tropical fruits.

What can you expect from a 5 año. Not smooth so definitely a mixer. Very present oak, vanille and some caramel in de the nose and palate.

Nothing special at all. Standard column still blandness. Some cool oak character but nothing memorable. Too much alcohol burn and harshness to sip on.
I bought this bottle to complete a cocktail recipe I've been working on:
The Angostura Sour
0.5 oz Egg White or Aquafaba
1 oz Lemon Juice
0.75 oz Rich Demerara Simple Syrup
1.5 oz Amaro di Angostura
1 oz Angostura 5yr Rum
2 Dashes Angostura Bitters

Reverse dry shake (make sure to double strain)
Serve in chilled sour glass or other medium-volume stemware

Hope my experience with this one doesn't dissuade me from trying their premium bottles.

It is a thoroughly typical aged rum. Mediocre aroma, no interesting flavor notes, not very smooth.

Average. Not worth the price to be honest. Big standard rum in my opinion.

For the money, it can serve in a cocktail. It would also be decent in a rum cake.
