Angostura 1919 8-Year rum

Angostura 1919 8-Year

Trinidad and Tobago | Aged

Angostura 1919 rum is produced in Trinidad by blending a combination of light and heavy molasses distilled rums. These rums spend at least 8 years aging in American oak bourbon barrels.

The name Angostura "1919" refers to the event in 1932 when Angostura's distillery was destroyed by fire. Miraculously, a handful of barrels filled with rum from 1919 survived and were purchased by J.B. Fernandes - the master blender of Fernandes Distillers.

This rum is an excellent multi-purpose aged rum with a light but complex taste profile. Provides a delicate and just-sweet-enough taste for sipping but also makes an excellent dry mojito. No heavy afterburn when taken neat or on the rocks, where it is excellent with a squeeze of key lime. The price is moderate considering the quality. This is the only rum I've found that approaches some of the qualities of the now-discontinued-in-the-USA Oronoco (a cane rum), which was my go-to rum for several years until the distributor pulled it in this country. Though 1919 is created from fermented molasses, it avoids the heavy, cloying molasses tastes of most dark rums as well as the napthalene qualities of most white rums. Plus the bottle is beautiful on a shelf!

Bourbon drinker. The slightly sweet aroma with the molasses backdrop... is very nice. The oak comes through. I like it!!!

The taste, the aftertaste. The aroma. The texture. Best rum found so far.

Perfect mixing & sipping rum. It’s very smooth, sweet and leaves a really pleasing & lingering aftertaste. 👍

For some reason this is my favorite rum. It has great taste, minimal aftertaste, and great body. Great straight from the bottle.

J ai été surpris au gout et arome parfumé. Il est doux et léger. Gout de caramel et crème. Je me cherche déjà une deuxième bouteille a acheter.

This rum captures the essence of what rum ought to be - an island spirit. The nose calls to mind the best the islands have to offer, and the taste delivers on that promise. The finish is pure pleasure. Those Trinidadians are doing something very right, and at a fantastic price to boot!
