So far I have found only two rums (Vizcaya VXOP & Plantation XO 20th Anniversary) that I will consume straight. This one comes oh so close to being the third. The 1824 has a wonderful aroma in the bottle and the flavor is very good...a mild sweetness with vanilla...but there's just a little bitter in there that brings it just below a 9 and sipping status for me. [NOTE: For the record, even though I've rated the Angostura 1919 an 8 as well I believe the 1824 is indeed better...an 8.85 as opposed to an 8.00)

So close....

Color is a nice Dark Amber. Legs are thin but seem to cling longer than you would expect. The nose is of sweet molasses, vanilla, and butterscotch. The taste is drier than the nose but still has predominate flavors of molasses and vanilla. The oak of the barrel is definitely present. A second sip brings out a bit of leather and tobacco. The finish is a bit hot with lots of spicy notes. Leaves me wanting more. A very complex rum. A keeper for sure.

Odd taste notes, tobacco etc. Clearly an essence-bomb, despite of Angostura always saying they do not put in essences (well, lab tests say otherwise). sweetened. Unnatural vanilla. Thin base spirit. No thanks. Has gotten from not so nice to truly awfully poor in its lifetime. Weak.

Well I'm no expert but this rum is very subtle. Initially a sweet aroma of vanilla and butterscotch, molasses as it warms a bit more. Definite oak taste but not at all over powering and not really discernible on my nose. Maybe a touch of tobacco. Not a rum that you would use as a mixer as the flavours are too subtle. I like it 50/50 with water.

I think it needs some minutes in the glass. In the aroma and taste you can find some vanilla, nuts and dried fruit I think. It’s smooth and the sweetness is quite balanced compared to the 1919. Rate 7,5.

Sweet, but still with a taste of the alcohol. A slight too much smell of sugar. Very good with a cigar

This is a little lighter rum of the super premiums not as complex or heavy as some are but definitley the smoothest I have ever tasted of anything 18 years or less. Angostura has certainly got my vote for a superb Rum maker. A must have for my cabinet.
