Nice flavor. Paired well with a walk on the beach in Grand Case. Well balanced flavor and sweetness.

Ok so I am still fairly new to rating premium rums and I feel I am still finding my feet but that being said, it's obvious that this is a decent standalone rum and the producers of it should feel proud that it's a fine product.

I've always have maintained that for anybody new to premium rums then a good introductory for them is Ron Zacapa 23 Solera or Diplomatico Exclusive Reserva. They are solid benchmarks and will immediately inform a novice sipper that the Bacardi, Captain Morgans and Bundaberg they are used to forcing down at their local pub are swill and good for little else than mixing. This I think, is now a 3rd option for those introductory recommendations to what real sippers should be like.

Popping the bottle I immediately get hit with a strong whiff of alcohol and think to myself that it immediately comes across as more scotch than rum. How pleasantly surprised I am when I take my first mouthful and find no burn whatsoever (for the record I chucked a couple cubes in anticipation it would burn and may need watering down).

It's a nice rum with some thin but lasting legs, it has a decent deal of complexity going on, it's sweet but not too sweet. Nor does it have that nasty ethanol whiff that some other brands out there have that pretend to be sippers until you take your first sip and realise that it its not really a sipper.

For a 12 year old rum, I think it's respectable, with a good deal of complexity and I look forward to trying more in their range.

Molasses, oak, honey, caramel, toffee and maybe tobacco or something odd there that sits in the corner and then comes out in strength after the mouthful goes down. Nice waxy coating mouthfeel you get with certain scotches. I personally rank this a 7.5. It's not good enough to break an 8 given some of the excellent rums I've given 8 and above to but with a friend on a lazy Sunday arvo with some chill music, good weather and sunshine, it works just fine.

Would definitely try again. Wondering how it will fare as a mixer as it does have a fair amount of complexity to it that might be drowned out.

If I'm honest, white rum isn't my favourite, but this is very serviceable.

This is an excellent sipper with a cube or two of ice, helps to soften the over-sweetness - otherwise very nice, very drinkable.

I like the 1824 Angostura. Was able to compare to the 1919 bottle. 1824 is darker, less sweet, less harsh. Maybe compare 1919 as a Rye version and 1824 as a bourbon version. I appreciate the less sweet, less sugar version. I’ve not been to Trinidad and Tobago, but I can dream, with the Angostura 1824. Enjoy!

I lied 1919 for smothness but when I tried the next - 1824 - I was shocked. It turned very much better! Perfect balance of softness and rich taste with excellent agening. I was impessed!
