A rum review - Angostura 1919 Rum

Real rum is supposed to taste like Angostura 1919, which is a little smoky (because it's aged for at least eight years in charred bourbon barrels), kinda sweet (it's distilled from sugar-cane molasses), and not at all what you remember rum tasting like.  It's more authentic!   Angostura 1919 Rum is a product of Trinidad (same as 10 Cane) that's been aged for 8 years by the time they bottle it up. 

(priced around the $30 mark)

The corked bottle itself is very handsome and it shows off the clarity of the rum.  Once you uncork this baby the area around you will soon fill up with an intoxicating scent of vanilla and caramel.   Upon pouring your rum into a glass it'll shine pale gold and trail thin legs that soon drip back down from the sides of the glass with the rest of the rum.

The rum on your palate oozes with the vanilla and caramel but now it'll also introduces your taste buds to new floral tones.   Because of the floral tones it takes some time to get used to the taste as they can push the other flavors aside.  After getting used to the taste, each sip will bring new appreciation for this authentic tasting rum.
