This stuff has eight spoons of added sugar per liter - a preposterous amount - which explains why it tastes so damned sweet and uninteresting. I love authentic rums from Trinidad (e.g.,Caroni) but this juice has that insipid, flat mouthfeel and lack of complexity common to heavily sweetened rums. What a waste.

I really like the Angostura No. 1 rums. I tasted this side by side with the Batch 1, and I personally give the Batch 1 a slight edge. The Batch 1 is a little more rum like, while Batch 2 has a little more bourbon.

Smells and tastes of molasses, almond, oak, and bourbon. As previously noted, the bourbon notes are just a tad stronger than in the Batch 1.

A great rum!

i have tried it in a cocktail bar as of rum tasting along many including Donpapa original and Angostura no.1 was the top for me.

Sattes, klares Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase sehr dezent, fein gesägtes Eichen Holz mit Kakao bepudert und in ein mit Karamell bestrichenes Moos Bett gelegt.
Im Gaumen sehr elegant und geschmeidig. Runde Aromen rollen relaxt über die Zunge, weiches Karamell umschmeichelt Schokolade, Vanillesauce fliest über ein rau gehobeltes Eichenbrett.
Im Abgang wunderbar lang, Milchschokolade und Vanillepudding verleiten Dich zu einem weiteren Schluck.
Ein sehr süffiger Rum, leider etwas wenig Tiefgang. Braucht eine sehr lange Zeit zum atmen. -8

Rich, clear amber in the glass.
In the nose very subtle, finely sawn oak wood powdered with cocoa and placed in a bed of moss coated with caramel.
Very elegant and smooth on the palate. Round aromas roll relaxedly over the tongue, soft caramel caresses chocolate, vanilla sauce tiles over a rough planed oak board.
The finish is wonderfully long, milk chocolate and vanilla pudding tempt you to take another sip.
A very drinkable rum, unfortunately a little bit too shallow. Takes a very long time to breathe. -8

The second edition is in my opinion a little bit better than the 1st, mainly because it’s dryer and not that sweet
Significant for the aroma is exotic fruits, almond and some oak. The taste is subtile and you can recognise nuts and dried fruit.
As a summary another good rum from Angostura, now we’re waiting for edition three.
Now I have also tested the 3rd edition, but it didn’t reach the level of the 1st and 2nd editions in my opinion.

Sometimes searching for perfection you hope that this bottle would be. Not for me this time, to oaky and sprawling.

At one point, I owned 7 bottles of this, thinking I had bought batch #1 (it was an error on the store's part). I tried and tried to like this rum. I ended up returning six bottles and keeping one. Pretty much as smooth as batch number one, I just didn't seem to appreciate the flavor. I believe it's the sherry finish. It works for others, just not for me.

This rum gets better and better every time I try it. I fear the day I won't have any left...

j'adore ce type de rhum très agréable, avec de la rondeur, de la force, et une très bonne longueur en bouche.
indispensable pour de petit moment égoïste.
je suis fan, je recommande a fond
