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.
I always go for the finall net experience and this rum leaves an unimprovable one. Regardless of how, the depth and strength of the flavor(s) achieved by rum are amazing. The vanilla, cinnamon, chocolate, and dry fruit notes are so clear and intense you can almost chew it as you drink it. Excellent as a sipper or with mineral water and lime. It always makes you want to have one more.
As I find my palate maturing and going away from the western carib and america's sweeter styles I really enjoy the 1824 dryer, complex, lovely taste and nose.
A smooth rum with little burn as it goes down. Nice vanilla notes - this is one to share with serious rum drinkers for them to discuss how good it is.
This is a spectacular rum. It's not cheap and not for the beginner. It's a complex rum. It's not too dry but not especially sweet. Very smooth with primary tastes of molasses, rum, enough oak to detect and a hint of spice. Tobacco hints are there too. I'm sure others wild discern other flavors I may have left out. Absolutely smooth enough to drink on its own but best on the rocks. I think the scent doesn't give you a heads up how good the drink is about to be.
Beautiful packaging and a bottle the could pass as a decanter.
If you really appreciate get rums and the money isn't a problem, treat yourself!
First taste was a bit HARSH, but then it mellowed out very nice. Molasses and vanilla flavors are present, but it has a predominant oak barrel to it.... Very complex...
awesome sipper and cigar time rum. Very much enjoy this
Nice tasty, smoky, and oaky rum. But a little to watering (thin) for me.
Very good and beutiful rhum! First sip is a little bit harsh and bitter but those are fading background nicely! Not recomended for a beginner!
I tried with smokes and even mild cheese and taste was much smoother!
I was a fair bit disappointed with the 1919 line and was a little hesitant to pick this up but everyone(/thing) deserves a second chance.
Nose: This had me worried. The 1919 has some stale/chemical smell to it which really put me off and this one has a hint of the same. I had to check with the 1919 that I didn't pick a class with dish-washing powder still on it. After leaving my glass to breath for a bit the 1824 seemed to get a bit better.
Feel: Sharper notes at the start rather than lingering after-taste. . Medium burn.
Taste: Lots of wood, a little citrus and vanilla and caramel. Standard flavours really. Solid, but nothing stood out as bring particularly different.
Presentation: I don't really like short bottles that much (would rather the shelf space) but this one is OK I guess. It came in a box and I normally enjoy the cards that come inside giving insight to the production but this had nothing in it but the bottle.
This is a proper rum, not for a beginner. it's rich in flavor and is super complex. Great value for money and a big step on from the 1919
Seductive flavor with solid vanilla caramel and molasses upfront and subtle Caribbean spices
Angostura 1824 Rum havde meget røg smag, men god duft og fine gardiner.
Excellent but not exemplary!
This is a good sipper!
Skøn rom med en anelse anderledeshed over sig både i duft og smag. Det klæder den godt, og kan godt minde lidt om en Caroni rom. Er også begge fra Trinidad.
Genkøb da den kan købes i Tyskland for kun 310kr.
Love this stuff, totally blew my mind once I got a change to taste it. This is what Angostura should taste like...Always
Dejlig fyldig rom, med røgtoner.
my first angostura, really different from my other rhum, a must have !
Moins lisse que son petit frère le 1919 (et moins sucrée), le test m'as plu, son prix ne sera pas longtemps un obstacle à en obtenir 70cl à déguster à la maison.
Color : Dark brown
Flavor : Vanilla & oak, light cacao aroma with a hint of exotic fruits
Palate : Slightly bitter and velvety rum
If you like standard style of rum this 12yrs old is not for you...
Voilà un rhum représentatif du savoir faire de la maison Angostura, délicat et parfumé il surprend tout d'abord car moins marquant que le "jeune" 1919 au nez mais la bouche, ronde, est d'une grande justesse, puissante sans être écrasante et d'une longueur à faire pleurer. Dans l'absolu il s'agit d'un excellent rhum.
C'est un rhum d'une belle complexité qui ravit les palais les plus avertis. Il s'agit à mon humble avis de l'un des meilleurs rhums au monde, un nectar délectable, ne refusez pas une occasion d'y tremper vos lèvres.
Like this one! It's smooth but not as much as the 1919 and has some spicy notes!
It's good enough to sip on the rocks, but not the smoothest out there
