High alcohol enjoyable for a trained rum enthusiast
Strong in nose as the high level of alcohol stands out. In nose, oaky and a lot of dark fruits. Highly recommended!
Very well balanced rum
Citrus (orange peel), spice and woody (oak) notes. It is a smooth rum with a long after taste. Slightly sweet. Recommended for those of us who don’t l

I am definitely a huge MG rum fan!
I like their “no sugar added” policy and how they have been able to stand out in the rum business. For rum lovers that are more inclined into a well b

Great rum for after a meal (sweet)
If you like a sweet treat after your meals, this is the go-to rum. In nose: vanilla, caramel, and some hints of oak. In mouth: super smooth (almost no

Jamaican rums are undoubtedly good and very well balanced. This is pure Jamaican funk. Just try it and you’ll love it!
Smooth and interesting
In nose you can find some vanilla, toffee, oak and fruits. In mouth: caramel, oak and spices. Oaky aftertaste.
Pending tasting notes. Remember it being smooth. Flavors are mellow. Oak and grass are predominant.

Upper mixer / Lower sipper. I had it straight with no ice. Oak and fruits are the predominant flavors. Quite smooth for an 8-yo rum but not very compl
The best from Angostura
This is a versatile rum that works well as a sipper or mixer. Personally, I like dry rums that are not too sweet and this meets that criteria from the

Definitely Jamaican rums are unique! The so called “funk” gives these rums a very special touch. This is no different in that sense: banana flavor, pi
Number 1 Sherry Cask
First impressions: dry, oaky and a hint of sherry
Need to give it another chance (will edit this post soon). First impressions: quite dry and oaky, with a hint of sherry. From the Angostura webpage
Great option for sweet rum lovers (and great value for money)
This is a sweet rum, probably suggesting that it has sugar added. However, it is a well balanced rum and has a great value for money. I am more into d

Strong in nose, smooth in mouth. Personally, I couldn’t recognize any flavors by smelling it as it has a very strong alcohol smell. In mouth, however,
Not your sweet rum
In nose: smoky and a slight of toffee In mouth: dry, oaky, leathery Aftertaste: dry and oaky
Great rum, too bad the flavor lasts too little in mouth
This rum was produced to celebrate FLA’s 100th year. It is a solera 19-year rum that is not too dry/rough on mouth and not too sweet, but the flavor d

This is the first high-end rum I tried. At first, it was perfect, not too strong and with a great after taste. In mouth, is sweet but super smooth due
Too sweet for me
This rum is quite in mouth, aftertaste is sweet and there is no burn at all. The flavor, in my opinion, is too sweet. I add two or three ice cubes to

An ok rum at a good price
Strong alcohol taste that makes it hard to identify flavors beyond caramel and vanilla. After you let it breath, it is possible to identify a fruity t

First, it is a shame that Angostura changed the bottle type and replaced the cork with a valve and a regular cap. Just by presentation, this rums shou
Had it with ice: it is not as sweet and it has a higher alcohol taste than the 12yr and 15yr (haven’t tried the 21 and 25 yet), but I did not find it
So far, it is my favorite of the Angostura House (and I have tried the 1919 and the 1824). Dry and mellow burn. Dark chocolate notes.
Very different form the rest
I like rums that surprise me in a good way. This rums has flavors and aromas that I haven’t experienced in other rums (and I have tried a decent amoun
Almost too sweet
Both in nose and mouth, sweetness predominates. Some flowers and citrus aromas can be identified in nose. In mouth I could also taste some chocolate.
Bitter and sweet rum
It seems to have some sugar added, which is slightly balanced by the bitters from coffee and dark chocolate. IMO there should be less sugar added to a

Gentle in nose, smooth in mouth but very dry for me. I had it with no ice... maybe with ice it tastes better?

Wonder if an older version would improve this rum
The alcohol hit is quite strong and kills most flavors. I was able to distinguish fruit and rice in nose. In mouth, I tasted a gassy and earthy flavor

The Forgotten Cask
Not much to offer
Nose: spices and some caramel Taste: sweet (caramel), smoky, dry and spicy It has a medium aftertaste (spicy and strong)
Agricole from Portugal - not much body and short aftertaste. Fruity notes and strong flavor.
Could not understand this rum
Not well-balanced. Too much alcohol does not allow to identify other flavors.
Spicy (and nothing else)
Hard to identify other flavors besides the spices. In nose I was able to recognize fruits. Not sure I’d remember this rum after tomorrow...
Young rum with no balance or body
Nose: caramel and some herbal flavors Taste: slightly sweet and some oak but not much
Rum Company of Fiji
Not really sure about what I just drank
I did not like this one at all. In fact, it does not taste like rum.
Don’t expect much from this
Cheap rum. Usually you drink it with coke. Don’t expect anything from this rum.
Not a good choice if you don’t like sweet rums
The rum tastes and smells like caramel. Unfortunately I associated it to cough syrup so I won’t give it a second chance. Too sweet for me.
Not for rum enthusiasts
Terrible choice if you like complex rums. Definitely not my type. Overly sweet.
