Angostura 1919 rum

Angostura 1919 rum is produced in Trinidad by blending a combination of light and heavy molasses distilled rums. These rums spend at least 8 years aging in American oak bourbon barrels.

The name Angostura "1919" refers to the event in 1932 when Angostura's distillery was destroyed by fire. Miraculously, a handful of barrels filled with rum from 1919 survived and were purchased by J.B. Fernandes - the master blender of Fernandes Distillers.

It's a nice & elegant rum.

The Angostura 1919  is a nice blender that works very fine in different cocktail and drinks. I prefer this rum with Coca Cola and lots of ice.
I tried to drink it neat but don´t think it´s good enough. Sweet with vanilla, fruit and some oak but too much sticky alcohol and spice. This rum is a bit too harsh to drink neat, in my opinion.
But when I mix it - I love it :)


Great for sipping, great for mixing, and lovely on the tongue.

drink it on the rocks in the sun! its not that sweet but is is an ok Rum

Probably one of the most famous old rum over the world. As many others mentioned before, this Angostura is a good door to the magic world of the old rums.
Not too expensive and easy to drink it's a good rum, but far from being as surprising as the Arcane Extraroma from Mauritius or even not as well balanced as the Clement 6 years Old.

A good rum to use as a standard benchmark. Nice aroma with a simple and uncomplicated flavour.

I usually mix my rums with orange juice or pineapple, but with this; I drink it straight. It is just that smooth. I thought my Mount Gay was the best, but we have new winner. There are hints of oak, and vanilla. I truly enjoy it, please try.

vanilla honey medicine in nicely shaped bottle a optimistic colour

My first Trini rum and it was really a pleasure. The caramel and nut fragrance was really nice. Not to sweet , but very good with a cube of ice. Nice, affordable rum

I like it a lot, the flavor at the end is wonderfull, the pepper, vanilla can be felt after drinking king.

Good rum for the money, lots of vanilla and fruit scent. Nice caramel, vanilla and light wood taste. Not overly sweet, but decently balanced.

Great note of vanila. I sipped it on the rocks - fantastic entrance to the world of rums. Recomended!

this one rates low every time the boys get together. maybe angostura makes good rum, but buy a different one from their catalogue. not memorable.

The aroma out of the bottle indicates this to be a sweet rum and this is confirmed upon first taste. I get immediate vanilla and butterscotch flavors before the burn begins. Definitely a good sipping rum and also works extremely well in Coke Zero (which is how I prefer it). Also I enjoy 3 ounces of the rum added to a 12 ounce bottle of Florida orange juice. Nice.

A good rhum for starting a rhum tastings. Quite easy to drink and it has a lot of vanilla, tropical fruits and honey.

Perfect with dried fruits and vanilla ice cream.

This one has a bit of a alcohol bite, but balances weetness nicely with fruity favours.

It's a good sipping rum...just not as good as 1824

Beautiful bottle and packaging , rums a nice golden colour and I pick up plenty of vanilla in the nose. Quite a harsh taste but reasonably smooth with a shortish finish. I tried this straight but struggled with the harshness so tried as a mixer with a good cola , very nice so thats how it will suite me.

Drank it but can't remember it! Perhaps that says it all really?

Great vanilla nose. Lovely taste. Not very sweet but remarkably smooth vanilla character, with a light and distinct oaky finish. There's not a lot of added sugar in the 1919, wich I find makes it a pure expirence. Not that there is anything wrong with sweet rums, this one if just different

Always in my collection go to golden rum full of flavor smooth with sweet / dry after tones good rum for price would recommend.

Nagyon megszerettem e rumot, vaníliás, enyhén fűszeres, tölgyes , jó szagolgatni és inni egyaránt ...legyengése hosszú, kissé száraz, alkoholos-fűszeres !! ( az üveg masszív, ölni lehet vele ) :)

Von Geruch her wirklich sehr ansprechend! Etwas Holz, Vanille und ein wenig Frucht. Normalerweise lasse ich meinen Rum gut 15min stehen, bevor ich ihn trinke, dann ist er nicht so scharf, aber bei diesem Rum ist es nach meinem Geschmack besser ihn gleich zu trinken. Wenn er zu lange steht, schmeckt er mir irgendwie etwas zu rauchig und nicht so fruchtig. Trinke ich ihn nach dem einschenken, ist er zwar etwas schärfer, aber die Aromen sind mehr vorhanden und er schmeckt nicht rauchig... zwar ist er dann etwas schärfer, man schmeckt den Alkohol mehr, aber alles in allem ein besserer runderer Geschmack! Ebenfalls schmeckt mir dieser Rum mit Eis besser als auf Zimmertemperatur... halt irgendwie alles anders aber gut :)

Nose: A nice light fragrant nose, floral with vanilla, cherry cola, ginger, caramel, orange and coconut.
Palate: Soft, sweet arrival that turns spicy around the tongue with cinnamon and orange. Smooth, relaxed and warming.
Finish: Spicy vanilla
Smooth and sweet but also light. Spicy enough to be interesting as a sipping rum, no burn, silky. Works well as a mixer, but nice enough to keep for sipping. A great introductory mid-band rum and very good value at the price.
88/100, or 7/10 here.
