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.
Lovely amber colour , nose of vanilla , spices and raisins. Smokey but quite dry tasting with a nice bite. I like this on its own , or with ice and its as an excellent mixer . A good all round rum in fact.
This rum has great flavor at the same time as being very smooth. It is a slightly sweet rum (my favorite rums are) but still has the oak tone to it - just not overpowering like some. Overall it is VERY near the top of my list.
Sugar: 16 gpl. A smooth rum with a heavy taste of Oak and tobacco with a hint of dark chocolate and vanilla. It's not a sweet rum and at $80 per bottle I don't see the value in this over some other rums in that price range The 1824 is a good tasting rum and it's worth having in your collection for it's different taste.
Good flavor, but the bite dominates. $'s don't equate.
edit-a fresh tasting/ that 6 may be too high. Something is overpowering here.
edited to add sugar test results- 18g
...while it might be better, the price difference in the UK at least, just doesn't make sense. OK the 1919 is much more commercial and a crowd pleaser but it is about half the price. It is rich and complex, but the price just makes my view of it a little jaundiced.
One if the smoother rums I've had. Just the right amount of slight spice with a shorter finish than expected. Strong brown sugar nose. Woodsy notes with a touch of molasses. Lacks some character and depth, or would have gone to 8 or 9.
Ordered this one again. In my mind it was a darker tasting rum with hints of coffee, caramel and hazel.
The reality from the current bottle however is little to no scent. The thickness is nice and smooth in your mouth. But no real stand out tones in the taste and slightly sour aftertaste.
Could be that I am getting a cold which is affecting my taste so I’d try again soon.
