Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Delicious, one of my favorite Rums.
Perfect level of sweet, Nice long lasting taste.
Different from the 1919, I like this better.
Anxious to try the 1824 soon.
This rum is for real pirates. This rum isnt for everyone. He isnt sweet. He is truly dry and clean. That taste of clarity can appreciates only professional pirates. This ron is opposite for El Dorado 12 that is so sweet. At nose you are able to think that Angostura 7 is clarity and sweet, but at tongue its heavy and woody. So this isnt proposition for newbe drinkers. This is proposition only for morning pirates:)
Well balanced añejo, not too vanilla-ey or sweet. Great Cuba libre, and nice all by itself or with a cigar!
This column stilled aged rum from the family of Angostura rums is great for tiki drinks. It's complex enough to shine through. I wouldn't say this is a sipper, though.
This one is very tasty, it´s a sipping rum first of all but does make great cocktails as well. The old rule of thumb is never wrong - the better base spirits the better cocktails. I`ve had a lot of great cocktails with it at various rum and cocktail events and it never disappoints.
It's Saturday night and it's time for the rum review. The house of Angostura can trace its start back to 1824 when a German Doctor, Johann Gottlieb Benjamin Siegert,who at the time was a Surgeon General for the Venezuelan Army. He created the now world famous blend of herbs of which we know as Angostura bitters. When he developed this blend he called it Amargo Aromatica. Originally founded in the one called little town of Angostura (now called Bulivar city),the production was relocated by his son and grandson to the Port of Spain, Trinidad in 1876. Remaining famous for its aromatic bitters the rum was starting to get well known. Their rums are and have been distilled in a 5 column still and have been awarded several awards for gold and silver for all the rums they make. The Angostura 7 year old rum is no different, 80 proof and produced by taking out of the first column a good helping of heavy distillate it is then aged in American white oak and then blended with one that's been through the entire 5 column system. Once blended it is then aged for an additional 7 years to mature in single used American Bourbon barrels. Once aged it is again blended and bottled at 40% alcohol by volume. In the glass Angostura 7 year is light amber and gold in color and leaves a thin film on the inside of my snifter. Once the medium thin legs form they slowly crawl back to the reservoir. This rum is loaded in aromatics and flavor. Upon first pouring, butterscotch, vanilla and fine pipe tobacco fill the air above the glass. After a few minutes a milk chocolate and a fine Equadorian coffee arise and join the other scents. The entry is extraordinary and smooth. Lightly sweet with honey and oak spice flavor. This is followed after adding a ball of ice, butterscotch mixed with orange zest making this one very sippable rum. The finish makes it even better a good vanilla bean flavor from the oak goes down smooth with almost no burn.
Drinks can range from the Cuba Librè to a frozen tropical drink. This eve I'm drinking it with Goslings ginger beer a splash of Austrian peach schnapps and key lime juice. Neat is the favorite but I have to have a cocktail with the review. This rum will be transferred to my onion bottle once the review is posted. For the weekend that's it from me have fun with the remaining weekend visit family if their close by or at least call them up and wish them joy and happiness. Till the next week stay safe stay alert stay alive and drink responsibly. Another great rum will be reviewed by yours truly, till then down the hatch.
In New Brunswick, it cost $35. Well worth it. It is ok neat, but tonight I found a can of Angostura Lemon Lime &bitters at Scoop &Save for mix and it really hit the spot. Everyday great Value!
Sabor a caramelo y vainilla, me gusta mas q el havana 7
This is definitely a step up over its younger 5 year old sibling. Not as much burn going down. Similar notes as with the 5 year old with a nice amber color. A flavorful rum that also is appealing to the nose as well. A nice price for a mid range rum distilled in a column still. Yet another good example of a good rum from the island of Trinidad and Tobago. Nice notes of chocolate, honey, maple, oak, toffee and some citrus thrown in. Aged in bourbon casks for up to 7 years.
Not a bad dark rum, pretty good for the price. Better than Havanna Club 7 years, smoother and more flavour.
Dobry ale neni to zadne specialni piti, nic v nem neni citit
Aromas are not overwhelming. Could not really taste the "age" but overall a good drink to sip on
Even Angostura 7 is a relatively good rum I always mix it and mainly with coke or ginger.
For that price is not bad, i felt vanilla tones, but not too much
But thats about the only difference. I really like Angostura rums and this is no exception. Maybe more sippable but still a good mixer for me.
i found it to be a decent sipper and a good mixer. but i actually perferred the 5y and the 1919 over the 7 year. which has a different flavor palette. maybe thats what threw me off.
overall Solid Rum and good to add to the collection.
Loved it! Great dry sipping rum, complex flavors. Preferred it over several other higher end rums which tend to be too sweet.
very good mixing Ron for Cuba-Libre and many more Longdrinks.
Just a good solid rum - nothing unpleasant about it. Not too sweet, some nice tobacco and leather notes.
I did not detect all the flavors that the first reviewer ( Mr. Outman) did, however, I do like it. For the money it is not a bargain - upwards of $33. I was expecting more distinct flavor from Angostura, THE name in bitters. I will continue to sample other dark rums - what great joy!
Perfectly aromatic vanilla notes. A fine amber mixer, but in British Columbia overpriced.
One of the best 7 years rums I tasted, well done idd
I finally got my hands on a bottle of this one from Angostura. All four of my Angosturas are rated at a 7, but by rankings the 1824 ranks 25th, their 1919 ranks 26th, this 7 Year ranks 54th, and their 5 Year ranks 69th. This is with 163 rums being reviewed.
If you like the unmistakable unique taste of Angostura rums, then go for whichever one of them your budget can afford. This one was $28. I personally think that their 1919 represents the best value and taste. This line of rums clearly falls into the Love Them Or Hate Them category.
After giving the Angostura 5-year a "7" I feel a "7" is applicable to the Angostura 7-year rum. However consider it more of a 7 for the 5-year and a little over a 7.5 for the 7-year. It's just a tad bit better.
It has a slightly darker amber color as compared to its younger sibling and has a more appealing aroma. Its flavor has that oak tones from the barrels in which it was aged. However the extra aging has caused it to cross over the line, albeit barely, into sipping territory. Definitely smoother with the vanilla and caramel tones as well as butteriness element. There some spiciness to it as well. Doesn't have as much of a burn as its younger sibling.
A very versatile rum enjoyable in mixed drinks, colas, on the rock, and even straight up.
