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.
Rum starts from dark chocolate taste and goes to oak. Didn't liked this angostura.
This one has a decent flavor to it, a bit sweet, but on the rocks it is very good. Better straight than mixed.
Oaky, a bit harsh and a bit sour. Interesting and different rum. But let it breathe for a long time before the first sip. A liked it but this rum is different in a good way.
Tried this after the bartender made an intro. Weak color. Not to sweet. Balanced body. A little bit sweet aftertaste but you are loosing quickly. Always with ice and dont mix it
Mjuk rund smak, behaglig sötma. Lite smörig kanske men överraskande god faktiskt, en rom man kan softa gott med när som helst.
This was the first sipping rum I tasted, and still the only rum I always keep in my cabinet. As a whisky lover, I love the hint of smoke. Complex undertones and not too sweet. Simply delicious!
Really well-presenter rum here. Nicely presented in its container, with a booklet and a beautiful corked top.
Angostura 1824 has a fairly straightforward aroma in my opinion - one that’s relatively sweet, with hints of honey, floral notes and a little nuttiness.
The taste is well-rounded and very smooth - a fantastic balance between sweetness (honey, maple syrup), savoury (butter, nuts, woody elements, and even a slight smokiness), and spice (ginger, leather).
Fantastic rum! Not quite a Diplomatico, but not far off!
In my top category, I can't stop wanting more. Who wants to rob a bank?
Good flavor, good aroma, not too sweet. Still a recommandation.
Spiced room. Strong. Nice and sweet aroma of orange and citrus. aftertaste of oak and tobbako. light mouth.
A very smooth drink but definitely not worth the standard price point. Other options are better.
Rum is nice with hints of tobacco oak leather. Not to sweet
Un nez très parfumé et une bouche beaucoup moins. aucune longueur en bouche
Vůně: medová / citrusová
Chuť: těžší rum, palivý na jazyku, po nadechnutí velmi jemný s chutí po citrusech
Soft taste, a bit darker, fruity flavor. Just a bit too narrow taste
Something with its taste, especially finish is puling my rating of it down. I am glad that I had only 1 glass of this so I didn't drown my money into botlle...
Final verdict: I will not buy it again
This is matured in American oak bourbon barrels for at least 12 years
when it is blended and re-casked.
Taste of Vanilla, honey , caramel and Bourbon.
Leaves a little bitter taste in the mouth,
so it's just a good rum but nothing more.
Výborný rum s lehkým kávovo-tabáko-karamelovým nádechem. Výrazný propolis a plástve za mně bod ubírají na 7b, ale věřím, že u někoho právě propolis požene tuhle flašku o 2b výš.
Taste 7+/10. I dont like whisky taste but this one is nice for bourbon style rum with some little sweetnes. It is just ok for sipping if there isnt any other good aged rum. Also it has great aroma-smell and you can feel the aged rum in your drink not fake solera.
This is hands down a great rum, but I wouldn't say it is for everyone. A lot of rum drinkers may like a rum with notes of vanilla or coffee and sweetness...and while you can smell some and taste a hint this is truly a sophisticated smokey/oaky rum. As noted by some others...great with a cigar, and honestly is one of those rums that is kind of like a whisky. It is a great rum. But as I noted, not for everyone
I think it needs some minutes in the glass. In the aroma and taste you can find some vanilla, nuts and dried fruit I think. It’s smooth and the sweetness is quite balanced compared to the 1919. Rate 7,5.
Picture: My Angostura shelf.
Excellent taste with touch of tobacco, leather, vanilla. Delicious sweet ron after a good lunch
Since I liked their 1919 rum, I finally bought a bottle of this to give it a try. I had planned on driving 40 miles to test one ounce at a bar, but those tests only rule out rums that I would never buy. One also cannot adequately judge a rum from just one ounce. I am running out of good cheap rums to buy, so this was a good $58 gamble.
This is a semi-dry rum from Trinidad and has 17 gpl of added sugar. The aroma is of leather. The taste is of fruit and leather. The after taste is the same. It is darker than their 1919 and the flavors are more pronounced. Is it worth another $22 per bottle more than their 1919? That has yet to be seen when the bottle is finally empty a few months down the road. At least it will last for more than 4 months because it has less than 20 gpl of added sugar.
