Looking Good There Buddy! 

Angostura 1824I know this ‘news’ isn’t exactly new – but we just don’t seem to get any opportunity to feature Angostura Rum on TheFloatingRumShack.com.  Angostura is a massive producer of rums, for both its own brands and for others.

So looking to put that little detail right...

The new look presents Angostura 1919 and Angostura 1824 in ergonomically shaped bottles which successfully blend the traditional Angostura iconography with a more modern and fluid shape.  The new packaging offers a bespoke, iconic cut glass decanter and exquisite, specially commissioned original artwork which features on the neck label and gift carton.

Inspired by Trinidad and Tobago, the artwork incorporates national elements including: the scarlet ibis, the national bird of Trinidad & Tobago, taking pride of place on the nations coat of arms; the ship, symbolic of discovery; the sugar cane in arrow, signalling the ripening of the sugar cane; the dancer, the joyous spirit of Trinidad and Tobago; and the butterflies, numerous in variety and as colourful as the rainbow people of La Trinity. A beautiful glass embossing of the Angostura signature butterfly on the base of bottle provides the final stamp of approval.

Tasting Notes

Angostura 1919


Angostura 1919

A golden-amber hue with excellent clarity.  This rum exudes a  complex bouquet brimming over with aromas of cocoa, molasses, caramel and vanilla.  It is remarkably soft and well-rounded as the rum glides over the palate and within moments opens up revealing a generous and long-lasting array of toasty baked flavours.  The finish is warm and relaxing.

Angostura 1824

Dark gold in colour, Angostura 1824 offers a seamlessly smooth texture and well-rounded, medium to full body.  The bouquet is rich with aromas of sweet molasses, vanilla, honey, cocoa and butterscotch. Definitive cognac top notes. Finishes with a seductive warm toffee fade.
