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 8.85 as opposed to an 8.00)

So close....

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.

This is a little lighter rum of the super premiums not as complex or heavy as some are but definitley the smoothest I have ever tasted of anything 18 years or less. Angostura has certainly got my vote for a superb Rum maker. A must have for my cabinet.

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!

I got a danish Rum Book. There is a show of 40 rum, and I am about to collect them all :)


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!

My first thoughts are this is one fine rum. Having a hard time pulling out all the different aromas but it is very pleasant on the nose.
In the mouth is starts sweet but not too sweet, no burn at all and has a nice long finish.
A bit expensive but I am going to enjoy every drop of this great rum.

Very spicy, a bit of Barrel. sweet & fruity top rum.

Beautiful as a digestive. Slightly spicy (anis, wood skin). Smooth lingering finish with vegetal notes.

It's a little harsh on the nose but it's a beaut on the tongue.

I like the Angostura 1919 and prefer this one. Less vanilla, more of other things, seems more balanced. martin jeppesen comments describe quite well my feelings.

NB: I am not a specialist. It just happens that I like rum and I will not hesitate to adjust my reviews to reinforce coherence between my own ratings.

En fin rom med dejlige noter af lakrids, vanilje og andre ting

Sweet and smooth. A little bit too boozy. Not bad.

My first trip to Trinidad and, mostly, Tobago and I should be in rum heaven. I asked the bartender for his best rum recommendation and was handed a glass of 1824. I found it just slightly too thin, slightly too bitter, and slightly too oaky to meet my expectations. It's still a good rum, but just not what I had hyped myself to expeect.

Tyvärr har jag inte druckit denna. Betygsatte fel Angostura! Sorry!!!

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.
