I had read about this rum online and thought I might find it rather easily. I was wrong. But when I ran across a bottle (the only bottle of it in the shop) while on a weekend getaway in Panama City Beach a couple of months ago I immediate bought it. No questions asked.

A very pleasant aroma in the snifter. Very nice deep amber flowing into a golden yellow in shallower portions of the snifter. Swirling the rum in the snifter showed a long...and I mean LOOOONG cling to the sides of the snifter. Almost like painting with rum. I noticed that enhanced the aroma in the snifter. Nice.

Upon tasting it I noticed a clear contradiction...at first it has a marked sweetness and almost instantly transforms to a fairly dry taste. And add to that a pepperiness as well. Also seems a bit buttery to boot. Very smooth. The finish seems to be peppery with hints of toffee and vanilla and it's a long finish. Not a several burn but a definite warmth coating the through downwards.

Definitely a rum to bring out on those special occasions with friends and family.

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

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

Le nez est plus sucré que le batch 1 (cerise, bonbon arlequin).
L’attaque est douce mais manque de complexité. En fait j’ai été déçu car j’attendais énormément de ce rhum, mais une fois en bouche il n’y a pas de magie qui opère, pas d’explosion de saveurs, il y a un arrière gout de cognac qui prend tout de suite le dessus et qui coupe toutes les saveurs du rhum. Ca crée une énorme frustration, la dégustation a les ailes coupées en plein vol. Ca reste un bon rhum mais je préfère largement la 1er version qui a plus de caractère. Comme tout angostura le final est très intéressant par sa longueur.

I got to try this at the famous Rum Bar in the beautiful Whitsundays Isles in North Queensland. A 16 year-old rum apparently finished in cognac barrels for the last 6 years.
Definitely a brandy taste to it with raisins , slightly nutty and with pastry notes.. Dry and not too sweet. I enjoyed the Batch 1 last year and this was another nice sipper. I have the 1787 at home which im really looking forward to.

Nice sipping rum, you can really taste the oak flavour. Not as good as 1824 or 1787. But still highly recommended

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.

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.

10 years in American oak casks before being transferred over to once-used French oak casks that previously held Cognac for the final 6 years.

N- Shy at first, initially get the cured ham with raisin and various dried nuts, then more power and weights shows up gradually, and the aged rum notes blossomed to fullness at the tail, expecting more French Oak influence but the cognac were not as prominent at this stage. (87/21)

P- French oak comes into play with abundance of fig, raisin and oak nuance, well integrated with touch of phenol, charred wood and sweet cedar note. Good 2nd cask influence. Would be great if the sugary at the tail can be contain. (87/21)

F- Medium-long, more obvious brandy coats with echoing waxy dried fruits, full and subtly spicy. (88/22)

Body/Balance- 87/21

Weighted Rate:- 85pt
