Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Der Angostura 1919 gehört definitiv zur Familie der Süssrum, ist aber keiner der ganz süssen. Er schmeckt nach Schokolade und nach tropischen Zitrusfrüchten, ist sehr weich auf der Zunge, aber leider etwas schwach und kurz im Abgang. Im Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis spielt er ganz oben mit!
This rum is a good base for drinks but could also go for straight up on rocks. Taste becomes better with dark chocolate!
Attractive and tempting aroma, I love the smoothness and vanilla & caramel flavours. Nice with cola. A bargain at the price by anyone's standard.
the best trinidad rum ive had nice rum but not a really good rum
I know little about trinitarian rum but I am somehow taken by the angostura 1919. I believe this rum rating is 7.5 according to my personal scale. The taste is quite different from the Cuban rum school and I can see how Cuban rum fans will be polarized between like-dislike feelings. I always sip my rum straight to let the spirit enter my body pure and I am quite happy to open the doors to the A1919. However, would not have much of this one in one drinking session. For the current price of ~45CAD in Ontario, Canada does not represent as much of a good value as others like ED12.
Etant donné le prix je ne vais pas être trop sévère mais néanmoins ce rhum n'a pas, à mes yeux, un grand intérêt. Il se boit aisément avec son côté vanille bien prononcé mais c'est trop léger pour être un véritable rhum à siroter. Bref je suis content d'avoir découvert ce rhum qui semble être une référence sur le marché mais je pense que ma bouteille finira en cocktail ou pour les non initiés.
A deliciously sweet rum with vanilla & caramel flavours. This could be a little too dessert-like for some but I found it to be lovely especially with a cube of ice. Very easy to drink and makes a great sipper.
Rhum doux voire léger.
Un nez aromatique, un bouche très vanillé et très douce.
A consommer sans modération, avec un petite pierre histoire de le refroidir.
Pour moi ça reste du très très bon.
Seul reproche : le prix. Et là c'est vrai qu'il y a de sérieuses alternatives.
this is a sweet strong tasting rum with caramel and vanilla aftertaste,nice as a sipper but also with coke and ice.
A very sweet rum with lots of vanilla and sugar, smooth but not very complex.
A light gold color rum.
It is not a very intense rum but it has a sweet creamy vanilla aftertaste. With some chocolat flavor.
A dry but very nice & elegant rum.
This rum needs to some ice (on the rocks), it is a bit to soft to drink it straight up.
A perfect introduction into the world of rum...
Perfekt nybörjarrom! Lättdrucken med söta toner av vanilj. Trevlig till vardags och lagomt billig
Spicy, vanilla, and woodsy, this fragrant rum is a man's drink. Great finish.
Liked it, A little dryI thought it could use more sweetness
I'm missing the classic rum sweetness. The colour a light brown version, with a medium smell and bit boring taste & aftertaste.
Nez très vanillé, a tomber!
En bouche, subtile et agréable!
Le meilleur ti' punch de ma vie à été fait avec ce rhum!
Très bon rhum!
Mon premier rhum de dégustation. Je trouve que c'est une très bonne porte d'entrée dans le monde du rhum.
Sucré mais pas trop, mélasse bien présente et surtout une finale très très longue.
Peut-être un poil pas assez "riche", mais rapport qualité prix exceptionnel.
Je l'ai essayé en mojito : et bien c'est pas mal du tout...
I will usually drink spirits neat or on ice, this rum is falls into the ice category. There is so much to this rum that promises, oak nose, sweet aroma with vanilla and butterscotch, even a little tang to the tongue, but there is a harshness that I cannot identify making me want to put this on ice.
Bottle: A very nice looking bottle but a little lacking in label and distillery details. Looks good on the shelf but not interesting when picked up.
Color: Very light brown
Bottle Aroma: Light rum nose with a little bit of oak, and some spicy notes of vanilla, maple, and more biting ones, which comes as a pleasant surprise.
Glass Aroma: Sweet on the nose but the rum disappears in a small glass, I use a small flute and a cognac glass would better capture the bouquet.
Taste: Not initially warm as the oils coat the tongue, allowing tasting the oak very strongly, warms up and has a smaller effect in the mouth with the flavors than is caught in the bottle.
This might appeal to some palates but not to mine. I have it on the shelf and have noticed that guests enjoy the nose of this rum as much as I do but do not desire a second sample.
Because of its vanilla flavour maybe not a good choice for all occasions but as a replacement for a dessert a good one.
Very nice and tasty sweet rum with vanilla notes and maybe a little alcoholic to me. Very good rum for the price.
my friend showed me this rum and asked what i thought the price was. offcouse i was suprised. the bottle and taste cheated me.
nose is vanilla og and maybe a little alcoholic but not in a bad way
tase is wooden, vanilla, sweet and a little caramel.
very good valuerum
That's the word that came to my mind when I opened the bottle for the first time. So sweet and rich to the nose! Then, in the mouth, you do remember that it's rum and not syrup... Tasty but fiery! A revelation...
Perfect for a first experience of rhum. Vanillla & Caramel flavour. Very Sweet flavour.
This rum has such an oaky taste that the first time I tried it my description was "it tastes like you are licking the deck of an pirate ship" and I meant that in a good way. I still love to sip this rum but I buy it less since it's price went up by about $5.
