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.
Color : Gold
Flavour : Caramel, chocolat, vanilla and some wood
Palate : Creamy & melow, mid bodied.
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
Purchase a sample of this rum from Master of Malt around the £5 mark I think a bottle of this goes for around £30. The yellow hue of the liquid is refreshing.
The nose on this rum is soft and sweet with definite vanilla, but also a fresh grassiness, theres marshmallow there too with a subtle smokiness.
It's sippable but has a medium finish, it's fresh tasting, with a touch of heat. There are grassy flavours coming through (reminds me of rhum agricole), theres fruit there too peach or apricot maybe, it's not overly sweet but it's definitely there.
I look forward to sampling the 1824 next.
Damn good distillery. For the money this is great. Gutted sainsbury stopped stocking it. 7.5.
God smak, mycket sötma men något som skiljer den här från alla andra andra jag testat. Inte lika lång eftersmak som favoriiternaFinns en artificiell bismak någonstans som jag inte kan placera
One of the first rums I tasted and it’s still pleasing me. Today I think there is too much taste of arrack. If I want arrack I buy arrack. I will taste together with pea soup and see how it feels. Anyway it’s nice to have it in the rombar together with the other Angosturas when it’s in the old bottle.
