Angostura 1824 rum is a blend of rums aged for at least 12 years in oak barrels. The aged rums are blended, re-casked, and upon maturity hand-drawn for bottling.
This rum is named and crafted in honor of Dr. Johann Siegart's founding of Angostura house in the city of Angostura, Venezueala in 1824. Angostura 1824 rum production is now based in Trinidad.
I always go for the finall net experience and this rum leaves an unimprovable one. Regardless of how, the depth and strength of the flavor(s) achieved by rum are amazing. The vanilla, cinnamon, chocolate, and dry fruit notes are so clear and intense you can almost chew it as you drink it. Excellent as a sipper or with mineral water and lime. It always makes you want to have one more.
I may have received an older bottle as it was a square bottle with a cork top. The more recent bottling is a round bottle. This review refers to the square bottled version which I had:
Beautiful Spanish-style blended rum. Deep and complex with strong notes of vanilla throughout. Truly one of the best rums I've had. Delightful to sip and it is distinctive enough to turn a good cocktail into a cocktail that is memorable. As a tikiphile, I've found it to be amazing as the base of a top-shelf Pupule.
I've heard rumors that the newer bottling in round bottles with a screw top is not necessarily the same - I'll update my rating when I've had the newer bottling.
This was the first sipping rum I tasted, and still the only rum I always keep in my cabinet. As a whisky lover, I love the hint of smoke. Complex undertones and not too sweet. Simply delicious!
Wonderfully smooth, complex, and reserved. Flavors of oak, leather, and tobacco make this an excellent sipper and it's certainly worth making it last at the price point. It would be a travesty to mix this with Coke or even make something basic like a dark n' stormy with this rum. In fact, I currently use it only in my zombie (with a generous 1.5 oz pour) which is a kick in the face best enjoyed by lovers of rum in the first place. It takes a lot for me to really view a rum as something primarily to be enjoyed neat (as a tiki cocktail enthusiast) and this is the first rum that really makes me feel guilty for mixing.
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!
Love this rum but the only negative is that it is a bit too sweet. Excellent flavor profile, with hints of tobacco, leather, vanilla. Delicious rum but more for dessert.
