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.

I usually mix my rums with orange juice or pineapple, but with this; I drink it straight. It is just that smooth. I thought my Mount Gay was the best, but we have new winner. There are hints of oak, and vanilla. I truly enjoy it, please try.

Aroma: Angostura rozhodně není sladký rum, naopak, ve vůni se krom lehké kořenitosti, vanilky a včelích pláství dle mého názoru objevuje i určité medicínské aroma, ovšem není to ona jódovost, jak ji známe u whisky z Islay, patrně jde o vliv zmiňovaných dubových sudů po bourbonu. Jedná se tady jen o můj subjektivní dojem a názor, v zahraničních recenzích ji nikdo nezmiňuje, mně ale přijde na tomto kousku nejvýraznější.
Chuť: To, co slibuje Angostura ve vůni, se projeví i v chuti. Suchý příliv kořenitosti, opět zmiňovaná vanilkovo-dřevitě-medicinální až „desinfekční“ stopa. Vše skvěle vyvážené, harmonické. Poměrně dlouhé dokončení, stopa zakouřené dřevnatosti.
Shrnutí: Prozatím nejzajímavější rum, jaký jsem měl možnost ochutnat, zřejmě i nejdrsnější a nebál bych se říct i nekompromisní. Rozhodně si mě nezískal na první ochutnání, jeho přednosti a kvality jsem docenil asi až při třetí-čtvrté ochutnávce, nebyla to ona láska na první pohled, o to víc jsem si tento kousek nakonec oblíbil.

Big nose of vanilla, pours a lite amber. Nice legs. Really smooth and easy to sip straight without a need for water or ice.
Will buy again.
June 2022 update:
Bought a new bottle, and the flavour profile is much thinner than the last bottle a year ago. Harsher with more of a burn. Dropping the rating from 8 to 5.

I don't know what was the intention making this rum... alcoholic taste, bad afterburn, smells terrible... It is only drinkable with coke and a lot of ice, but seriously, for this amount of money just buy something else.

One of the first rums I tasted and it’s still pleasing me. Today I think there is too much taste of arrack. If I want arrack I buy arrack. I will taste together with pea soup and see how it feels. Anyway it’s nice to have it in the rombar together with the other Angosturas when it’s in the old bottle.

My first Trini rum and it was really a pleasure. The caramel and nut fragrance was really nice. Not to sweet , but very good with a cube of ice. Nice, affordable rum

Tried at Cane Rhum Bar in Charlotte SC (awesome people) - I like the finish of the 1919 better than the 1824. Really nice finish!
