Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Angostura 1824 rum is a blend of rums aged for at least 12 years in oak barrels. The aged rums are blended, re-casked, and upon maturity hand-drawn for bottling.
This rum is named and crafted in honor of Dr. Johann Siegart's founding of Angostura house in the city of Angostura, Venezueala in 1824. Angostura 1824 rum production is now based in Trinidad.
This is about as far from a partydrink rum can get. It is truly aged, smokey, leatherly, oakey and smells of an old library. To be enjoyed quietly, late at night. You'll like this if you like cigars, aged scotch and pseudo-intellectual drunk talking.
Nice smooth and tasty rum.
This rum with good cigar are fine pair to spend nice evening.
So far I have found only two rums (Vizcaya VXOP & Plantation XO 20th Anniversary) that I will consume straight. This one comes oh so close to being the third. The 1824 has a wonderful aroma in the bottle and the flavor is very good...a mild sweetness with vanilla...but there's just a little bitter in there that brings it just below a 9 and sipping status for me. [NOTE: For the record, even though I've rated the Angostura 1919 an 8 as well I believe the 1824 is indeed better...an 8.85 as opposed to an 8.00)
Very lovely rum. It has a great and refined balance. Not a sweet rum but very smooth, with a slight oaky tobaco finish
Color is a nice Dark Amber. Legs are thin but seem to cling longer than you would expect. The nose is of sweet molasses, vanilla, and butterscotch. The taste is drier than the nose but still has predominate flavors of molasses and vanilla. The oak of the barrel is definitely present. A second sip brings out a bit of leather and tobacco. The finish is a bit hot with lots of spicy notes. Leaves me wanting more. A very complex rum. A keeper for sure.
Like jazz, so much going on with the flavors in this rum. Molasses, oak, citrus, honey, smoke, leather all come to the pallette. A wonderful and complex nose. As someone else said an intellectual's rum but maybe that's because I'm half drunk listening to Sigor Rós. Lastly never ever mix this. Enjoy!
First off, I`ve got the new bottle wich is beautiful. Little dissapointing is the screw top, how could they,,,,,,,,,,
When you open the bottle and pour a glass the sent travels throug your living room,,when you put your nose in the glass don`t inhale to strong, wow , a lot going on. The taste does what the sent tells you,,,a carnival of flavours of wich some I`ve never tasted before. Chocolate, licorice, wood, leather, some vanilla, just enough sweetness, smokey (yeah,,,real smokey) etc,, the first sip gives an alcohol burn wich is strong but not disturbing, followed by a lot of different flavours that go beyond my palate but are truly fantastic. In my eyes it`s not a dry rum but leaves you wondering after every sip with a lovely taste in your mouth. Wish I was a specialist to be able to recognize all the diverse kind of ingredients . But as an amateur I can say that if you love rum, with this bottle you will discover how diverse this beautiful beverage is! Don`t you dare mixing this
Lovely amber colour , nose of vanilla , spices and raisins. Smokey but quite dry tasting with a nice bite. I like this on its own , or with ice and its as an excellent mixer . A good all round rum in fact.
This rum has great flavor at the same time as being very smooth. It is a slightly sweet rum (my favorite rums are) but still has the oak tone to it - just not overpowering like some. Overall it is VERY near the top of my list.
Very good rum, would be a sin to mix, a truly great sipping rum if that is what you are looking for
this one is nice to sip and anjoy on its one withe a good sigar!
A decent rum, but surely not the best one. It's too exotic and too different from what is called the average taste. It has a lot of burnt wood and too little of sweetness in the taste. It's far from the classical rum taste, therefore I think it will not have a great success. I do not mean it is bad. Not at all. In fact it's very good and me personally I liked it. It's only a kind of DIFFERENT RUM. Not for the average taste. As said it smells and tastes like the burnt wood. I have also discovered a smell that reminds me of tobacco. It contains only 17 mg. of sugar per liter. Not too dry at all, but not very sweet either. A kind of "half-sweet" rum. For me is it actually OK, but many people prefer the sweeter rums. I have also noticed a little of alcohol tones in the smell. Not very disturbing, but this is not very good for a rum of such age and such price. But it's not too sharp and is rather disappearing. In some words - very, very special rum. Doubtlessly worth of tasting. Worth of its price 65 euro? Hmmm, maybe it's a little overpriced. But actually not a bad price for such exotic and rare liquor. But if you ask me if I'll buy another bottle of this rum, I will answer that I am not sure about this. There are a lot of other good rums for this price and below. But it was pleasant and interesting experience to try this one.
Wonderful to sip, but had a sharp hint on the nose.
Not sure what to write on this one its been a few days since i had it. will revise when i try it again.
Thiner body and for myself too sharp alcohol taste
A nice one with a silky smooth aroma. For the cold winter evenings
A great sipping rum with s sophisticated and smooth with mild oakiness and smokey leather notes.
It's a bit darker than I thought it would be, Christmas present that I cracked open last night with my pal Kenny and we were not disappointed, Kenny drank it in two gulps because he had to get home to his Mrs pronto, but he did really like it.
It has a sharper taste than my usual choice of rum, deep oak flavours with a wee kick to it, more than the 1919 that's for sure.
1824 grabs you're attention it is stronger and darker in taste and should be nursed along in order to fully enjoy it's quality (Kenny).
Cards on the table this is a nice rum that is good for a treat, for casual everyday drinking I would prefer the 1919, but I do like this 1824 it's actually tasting better the more I drink think I'll have cheese on toast later.
This rum seems a little harsh but it actually taste very elegant. It has a light refreshing taste and at the same time has an oldish smokey wooded taste.
It is a sipper but is very nice with a touch of Sprite.
Angostura 1824 is a great addition to any rum lover's bar. It has a dark amber color and smooth taste that I don't mind drinking neat or on the rocks.
Every rum to me has a predominant theme, like vanilla, licorice, etc. In this case though it is a mixture of herbs.
The moment you taste it you know there is greatness in this rum. Very smooth and elegant development of taste which stays a long time.
For very special occasions ...
I finally found this rum locally and have been very impressed with it. I have enjoyed the 1919 but this is multiple levels above it
Aromas of oak, butterscotch, and a hint of orange. Spicy caramel flavor, with long, slightly peppery finish. Solid all-around rum, but not my favorite at this particular price point.
