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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
Gorgeous bottle, lovely amber colour.
As with the 1919 and similar to St Clement this has the medicinal note to it, which makes it a binary choice: you get it or you don't.
Majoring on El Dorado and Foursquare, I don't get it.
Dark, sweet and smooth. To drink neat, on ice or with a little water
Well, this one is sneaky. The 1824 feels like you're drinking a 20 proof child's version of rum. There is little aroma and even less flavor. It's as if someone has poured water into a half-full rum bottle. It doesn't taste bad, it just doesn't taste.
God rom med masser af smag. Der er masser af træ, røg og læder over den. God duft også.
Only 6.9 point. Slightly better than 1919, long way up to 1787
I find it's a light smooth oak dark flavoured you can mix this or have it neat I prefer neat
I got to know this rum during my very first tasting.
Très bon rhum. Léger et facile à boire. Caramel bois ...
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.
