Angostura 1919 Rum
Angostura // Trinidad & Tobago
Angostura 1919 is named to refer to a time in the distillery’s history in which a great portion of the barrel aging facility and distillery were destroyed by a massive fire. Barrels with the age date of 1919 were spared. This rum is fermented for 48-72 hours before being distilled in continuous column stills. 1919 is aged in first use, ex-bourbon barrels for a minimum of 8 years.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
"1919 offers a rich complex nose of vanilla, toasted oak, sweet fruitcake, stone fruits, and delicate baking spices. With a single sip baked-peach-pie, cinnamon, vanilla, toasted oak and allspice reveal themselves to be driving flavors with subtle undertones of fennel, pineapple-upside-down-cake, and pecans. The finish on this rum is round, sweet and spicy with just enough complexity to keep you coming back."
