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.

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.

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

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

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?

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

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

Un rhum avec un vanillé léger et un gout léger de marasquin qui qui lui donne de la personnalité. Un peu de sucre ajouté mais pas écoeurant pour autant.

It has a very bright color and lots of high notes. It is a decent rum, but it must be consumed with ice, which lowers my rating. As stated before it has a lot of high notes and almost no low. That gets a little tiring when drinking because it all tastes the same. The drink has moments where it shows promise but falls flat in the end.

The first time I tried this one, I taught I had found « my rum ». Actually, the bottle lasted much longer than expected. I still like it a lot, but I was lucky enough to discover several other aged rums afterwards and, principally, I am not always in the right mood for this type of rum, super smooth with a very strong vanilla taste. Maybe my example just confirms, once more, that Angostura 1919 is a good door to the magic world of the old rums. By the way, this is already a good reason for always having a bottle in my cabinet.

NB: I am not a specialist. It just happens that I like rum.

Var ett tag sen jag smakade just denna, har för mig att det var rätt mycket vanilj och arrak framförallt i både doft och smak! Inte dålig men inte toppen, måste prova fler gånger

Para mi gusto tiene demasiado sabor a miel y vainilla, es mi opinión pero creo que se parece mucho al Sailor Jerry pero sin especias. Definitivamente debes probarlo antes de comprar la botella ya que esto podría no satisfacer todos los gustos.

This rum is kinda harsh out of the bottle, it needs to mellow over ice a bit. Once mellowed, this is nice and light. It has a soft vanilla flavor with little to no after taste. I would reccomend this to a novice rum drinker.

The Rum is presented in a nice bottle (old packaging), low and squared. The aroma are quite sweet and wuickly you can identify something floral, almost like a rose. For me the "floral" side has been an issue real quick as I must have focused too much on it, but overall the Rum present several aromas like vanilla, fruits and orange peel... with that floral rose note!
You should definitely try it before you buy the bottle as this might not please everyone.
