Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
One of the first aged rums I tasted as a lot of people. I still appreciate it. Of course it is certainly altered (at least with a bit of sugar...) but it does not taste as fake as plenty of other excessively sweetened (and expensive) """ premium""" rums on the market. Sweet but not sickly sweet. Not very complex but quite balanced while still a lot of flavours to enjoy. All in all, a good rum in this price range.
Un des premiers vieux rhum que j'ai goûté, un peu comme tout le monde. Ça reste un rhum industriel avec sa dose -raisonnable- de sucre et surement d'autres choses mais il ne fait pas complètement trafiqué comme beaucoup de ces rhums """premiums""" qui inondent le marché. Le sucre ne couvre pas tous les arômes et il y a encore plein de choses à sentir dedans. Je l'apprécie toujours, c'est un petit rhum très sympa à prix raisonnable, parfait pour découvrir.
Color : Gold
Flavour : Caramel, chocolat, vanilla and some wood
Palate : Creamy & melow, mid bodied.
It's a nice & elegant rum.
The Angostura 1919 is a nice blender that works very fine in different cocktail and drinks. I prefer this rum with Coca Cola and lots of ice.
I tried to drink it neat but don´t think it´s good enough. Sweet with vanilla, fruit and some oak but too much sticky alcohol and spice. This rum is a bit too harsh to drink neat, in my opinion.
But when I mix it - I love it :)
this one rates low every time the boys get together. maybe angostura makes good rum, but buy a different one from their catalogue. not memorable.
Probably one of the most famous old rum over the world. As many others mentioned before, this Angostura is a good door to the magic world of the old rums.
Not too expensive and easy to drink it's a good rum, but far from being as surprising as the Arcane Extraroma from Mauritius or even not as well balanced as the Clement 6 years Old.
Sehr gut gemachter Rum aus Trinidad.
Nicht sehr anspruchsvoll in Nase und Gaumen,
aber ein durchaus süffiger Rum für alle Tage.
Very well made rum from Trinidad.
Not very demanding in nose and palate,
But a very tasty rum for all days.
Many years ago, when dinosaurs walked the earth, you could order a vanilla coke made to order - by a real human - using real vanilla syrup, real Coke syrup, and soda water. Angostura 1919 tastes like old-fashioned vanilla coke. Very easy to guzzle this stuff neat without breaking a sweat...but that's the problem. It's sugary sweet. Not to be taken seriously.
"The rum is very smooth with notes of oak, cocoa and vanilla. Perhaps a little banana but very subtle."
