Angostura Cask Collection No. 1 Rum
Angostura // Trinidad & Tobago
This limited edition rum from the House of Angostura pays homage to Don Carlos Siegert, son of the brand's founder, Dr. Johann Gottlieb Benjamin Siegert, who came up with the original recipe for their famous bitters. Found notes suggest Don Carlos had envisioned a blend such as this one that never came to fruition. It's a blend of 8 and 10 year old rums that spend 12 months in first fill ex-bourbon casks.
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".
"This is a very balanced rum with tart mango, red apple and pear giving way to brown sugar and vanilla. A delicious cocoa note appears after a couple of sips, with some toasted grain flavors. This is a terrific sipping rum that's dangerously easy to drink. Would be a shame to waste it in a cocktail."
