Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
($30CAD) I wanted to have a mixing option for some cocktails and also wanted to try this neat as the Angostura 7 year was delicious.
On its own, the 5 year smells strongly of alcohol but a bit fruity as well. Lots of that Angostura aroma too, which is slowly becoming one of my favourites.
Taste is definitely a bit sharper than the 7 but also a bit lighter with some tropical fruit and citrus notes dominating the tongue. It’s light and crisp with an ok finish.
I wish I had some English Harbour 5 year to compare with. Both are around the same price and in my opinion, would share the same purpose. Will get by as a neat sipper, and you won’t be afraid to throw it in a cocktail too.
Now it’s time to go up in age through the Angostura options.
Lehký rum s nevýrazným, lehce dřevitým aroma, ve kterém dominují nejspíše citrusy. Chutí ničím neohromí, ale ani neurazí. Je jemná a trochu nasládlá. V této cenové relaci můžu tuhle lahev určitě doporučit k vyzkoušení.
This is a fine rum for his price, I'd say he is more of a cocktail rum than a sipper, but I'm growing in to it.
Nose is really boozy.
Tast is reafreshing, sweet and sharp whit nuty and vanilla flaveors.
Plne souhlasim s hodnocenim, co psal HunterRomario. Vune i chut prijemna. Dub a med s prijemnym dokoncenim. Radeji bych ale tenhle kousek oxhutnal v sudove sile, protoze opravdu pusobi lehce naradene.
5 or 6 i was not sure about it. It is not a bad rum but it is defi etely not on the must have side for me.
If i catch it on a good sale i will buy again but above $20 i've tried better rums.
Nose: oakiness and alcohol smell is very noticable.
Taste: i know it will sound weird but it is a dry rum but it is sweeter than expected with honey caramel flavors.
Tried both sipping and mixing same confusing results. Did not get best out of it.
But you may like it
Picked it up for $15. Nose is molasses, caramel, vanilla, and spice. Apart from an initial alcohol bite, it is relatively smooth with some nice dry notes of wood and caramel with some spice. Vanilla teases too with an elusive sweetness. Actually not bad on its own, probably not bad with ice, though will most likely be mixed.
You would expect to fell more pleasant rum for a rum made to be consumed on it's own. Sadly this rum lets you down and in the after taste you can only fell strong alcohol with caramel found. On the rocks or cola only in my opinion.
This rum has a beautiful bright amber color. It has an interesting odor. A bit alcohol-heavy that stings the nose a little.
Tasting it reveals the oak in which it is aged (between 5 and 8 years from what I've read online) and a little sweetness with vanilla and caramel with a drier finish. This will tingle your tongue a bit. Leaves a bit of a lengthy burn in the throat.
A very versatile mixing rum. Has too much of an edge to it to be a good sipping rum. Overall a good rum and very useable in mixed drinks.
Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Trinidad a Tobago
Aroma: Vůně je o hodně řidší než jsem zvyklý u Angostury 1919 a 1824, ale je poznat, že jde o Angosturu, trocha včelích pláství a medicíny tu je, ale hlavně tu jsou znát citrusy. Je to takové odlehčené, nenáročné, zředěné. (82 b)
Chuť: V chuti platí to samé, co ve vůni. Hlavní poznávací znaky značky zůstaly zachovány, ale jsou naředěné. Dřevo, plástve, medovost. Pěkná je dochuť, ta je i přes naředění dlouhá, celkem plná. (82 b)
Shrnutí: Je to levnější, lehčí verze Angostury, za sebe doporučuji připlatit a jít do Angostury 1919, když už
Had this at the bar, and while generally I became favoring white ones, this also was nicely balanced set of spice. Bottle without butterfly as of now, but only one, I find here with 5 years too.
"It is sweet with a nice hit of vanilla ice cream and some slightly spicy dark chocolate, almost cocoa like notes."
