Très bon rhum, assez similaire au 1824. Très doux et délicieux, un vrai nectar. Même si j’ai une préférence pour le 1824 qui dure plus longtemps en bouche et qui est un peu plus sec, celui ci n’en ai pas moins excellent.
Very good rum, quite similar to the 1824. Very smooth and delicious, amazing. Although I prefer the 1824 because it last longer in the mouth and is slightly drier, this one is excellent as well.
molasses. sweet rum.
the older the rum get, the more sugar comes in?
thats not good! much more sweetness than in his younger brothers 1919 and 1824.
plum. vanilla. caramel. oak. chili. typical rum character.
much too expensive for that taste and stickiness.
5/10 and not my bottle!
if you like it sweet, maybe thats a real deal for you!
En riktig smakexplotion i början, söt inledning som övergår i lite spritigt mellanregister för att sluta med en låång romrussin/ kolasmak, liten ton av ek.
Wow, many "haters" out there for this brand. For $60 online at the time, I figured that I had nothing to lose...WOW, when I sipped it blind vs. another brand, I was blown away. Months later, finished the bottle and now cannot afford it!!!
Vanilla, caramel and marshmallow notes with molasses and spice finish.
To be honest I was expecting much more. Nose of this Rum is fantastic but taste has way too much of everything -for my taste. Some of my friends has tasted this and most of them has said that it is the best. I guess I have to learn to like it since I did buy a few bottles. I guess Estonia got lucky with this limited edition product since I have been able to get more than a case for me and some of my friends and there still is some left at the shop
One of the best rums I've tasted. The aroma doesn't tell that much but what I lacks in aroma it takes back in flavor. It's very smooth and well balanced.
Mycket trevlig rum....
Den gick snabbt.. Jaja de va sommar o semester
En dejlig blød rom med noter af bl.a karamel.
Den er fyldig i smagen og egner sig til at sippe stille og roligt foran pejsen.
Caramel, and cocoa are predominant in my bottle, with citrus making an occasional appearance. Sweet but not overly so, an excellent addition to the collection.
This is a sweet rum, if you find it grab it while you can. This is for the Diplomatico fans it's not as sweet and Diplomatico and it's does not have the orthodox Angostura taste. If I could award an 8.5 I would, just needs a longer finish.
Very nice rum, but perhaps a bit too sweet for my liking. reminds me of Diplomatico reserva a exclusivo a bit.
Smooth with a non-cloying sweetness. Reminiscent of maple syrup. My favorite go-to rum. I only have five bottles, and I don't know how I will make it last.
UPDATE: I now own 46 bottles, having cleared out the inventory of California, Arizona, and Minnesota. I'm also upgrading my rating from 9 to 10, which only stands to reason. If this is one's go-to favorite, then a 10 rating only makes sense. Otherwise, what does a "10" really mean?
I was lucky to find this on a liquor store shelf that doesn't specialize in rum (I've heard this rum is discontinued).
Smells of molasses, maple syrup, almond, oak, bourbon, and chocolate. Taste follows the nose. Bourbon is not overpowering, but noticeable. I compared this side by side with the Batch 2, and while I thought that was a very good rum, I like this one more.
I had really high expectations and the Angostura No. 1 delivered!
I have found a rum that beats my old favorite, the 3-star Ron Barrilito. This is like a super smooth refined version of it, namely in the long tailed oaky aftertaste that keeps me coming back for more. It does have a sweetness, but is in no way as sickly or overdone (looking at you Zacapa).
Highly recommended, worth the extra few dollars for sure.
Angostura has done it again. Much like the 1919 and 1824, this rum is the one you sometime have to hide from your guest. The Cask # 1 will make the biggest Vodka and cognac drinkers switch drinks for the night.
Although this rum seems to have its own haters club, I found it to be perhaps the best or second best I have ever tasted. I am sure it has sugar as most people suggest (that should mean little or nothing unless you are not serious about the experience), but it certainly provides an experience. Great for sipping, with Perrier or on the rocks with a hint of lime or lemon. Believe me, it is a great experience in the mouth, a demonstration of what molasses are capable of. There is caramel, cinammon, dried fruits, and chocolate. Smoothness comes with the sweetness. I hope there is a No. 2.
low smell with not much tones at all..
The taste is sweet but still not sweet.. It slowly changes to a bitter taste.. And the finish is kind of raw but not with any bad tones in it.. Hard to describe and it feels like a rum that is not for everyone since it´s lean and don´t have a thick body.
