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.

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

A friend gifted me a bottle of this. It was the first bottle I sipped through on the rocks with a lime. Good stuff and not harsh on the way down.

Nice sipping rum, smooth, but vanilla flavor is somewhat overpowering.
I believe this will go great at a dinner party.

This is a nice tasting rum. A little sweet with a clear taste of vanilla and little afterburn. I had it dry and also with coke, both ways didn't dissapoint. Matbe an 8 is a bit high but it's deffinitly a solid 7,5. It's a shame that old (square) bottle isn't available anymore.

I like this rum, but, I do think it has a whiskey character to it.

Très agréable et belle harmonie entre les arômes et le goût ! Excellent rapport qualité-prix ...

It seemed to be the most popular offering in the duty-free shop, so I tried a bottle. I've had better, and lord knows I've had worse! It's ok. A pleasant sweet taste but a little rough around the edges.

I consider this a very good quality rum. It has a full, semi sweet and quite earthy taste with a considerable amount of alcohol in the aftertaste.

One of my favorite rum's from Trinidad nice sipping rum.

I like this one for using in my dark and stormys and in manhattans, also really good mojitos. You can drink neat but I still prefer the 1824 it 12 year eldorado
