Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
It's like 20$ a bottle, is it magical? No. Is it jet fuel? No. It's just good. Not something you would sip straight, it's harsh. However it is really good in coke. Similar to Appleton Estate V/x with more allspice feel to it.
This is one of those "my first rum" type of rum. Seasoned rum drinkers won't be very impressed by it nor disappointed.
This rum has a decent golden colour, with a deep caramel and slight alcohol smell. Sipping it straight is not overly enjoyable... It is syrupy with a slight smoky taste, followed by a medium burn. Makes a decent rum and coke, although a little light (on flavour) for a seven year old.
For the price, like others remarked already, there is better, not pleasant in the mouth, taste of gasoline even.. Not my cup of tea, sorry rum..
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!
Just awful from the smell to the mess of a taste to the terrible afterburn. Stay away from this horrendous poison. Only marginally better than the 5 year old Angostura.
Deep oak but otherwise bland.
Solid mixing but doesn't stand well on it's own.
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.
This makes for a Good Mixer. It's got that barrel flavor you get from aged rum, but its not too sweet or spiced.. it's just got a good RUM flavor which I think lets it not color drinks too much like other rums. Would not drink this straight.
This rum goes easy, it's smooth and had an easy flavour. Sweet smell and and aftertaste. Good for sipping everyday but not extraordinairy.
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.
very good mixing Ron for Cuba-Libre and many more Longdrinks.
Not a terrible rum, was fairly smooth straight. Was worth it on sale.
God, len och mjuk. Verkligen helt OK att smutta på en kväll i glada vänners lag:-)!
Jemny, ne moc vyvazeny, ale peknych 5 bodu za 90,- je to cajk
Angostura rums are uncommon in Italy, here the brand is only known for their legendary cocktail bitters.
I bought this bottle online at a very good price, under 20€.
I think it's not bad at all, could be great on short cocktails and you can enjoy it over ice.
As a neat sipper i think that an upgrade to 1919 is required.
I believe that a good amount of caramel is contained, because this rum is darker than 1919 even if it's younger.
One of the best 7 years rums I tasted, well done idd
A nice but not excellent drop , quite sweet which I like (Yes I mix). I cant imagine anybody being offended but there are far better value drops for a few less dollars. Sits between Appletons (VX aka Signature) and Bacardi Gold on my palate. Wont knock it back if offered but I wont buy again.
For that price is not bad, i felt vanilla tones, but not too much
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.
It tastes young and flat, but still there is bit of harshness. The smell is nice, even better diluted. Vanilla, fruits, nuts with strong freshness. The taste is smooth, but with brief harshness, which sublimes in... well into nothingness. I'm not saying it is not good sipper. It's mostly sipper, because I can't imagine it into mixers. Unless you're going for binge drinking. I actually like this one, because it is some kind of... outsider. There is no great taste, but it still have own specific personality. So if you're rum explorer, don't hesitate to taste. If you are rum purist... stay away.
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.
For this price you can find also better rums. Despite that fact, it is not bad to either sip or to mix.
I feel the taste isnt my type, it taste too much liqure. I can see myself using this to mix drinks with.
Not a bad dark rum, pretty good for the price. Better than Havanna Club 7 years, smoother and more flavour.
