Angostura 1787 Rum: A 15-Year Journey in Every Sip

The Angostura 1787 Aged Fifteen Years Rum is not just a spirit; it's a meticulously crafted journey through Trinidad and Tobago's rich rum-making heritage. Aged for a full fifteen years in burnt oak barrels, this exceptional rum embodies the tradition and expertise of the Caribbean island nation.

A Nose Rich with History

Pour yourself a generous measure of Angostura 1787 and take a moment to appreciate its alluring aroma. The first inhale reveals a beautiful balance of sweetness and complexity. Hints of prune, a touch reminiscent of rum-soaked raisins, mingle harmoniously with the subtle warmth of vanilla and baking spice. As the aroma unfurls further, deeper notes of toasted oak emerge, hinting at the rum's extended maturation and its intimate dance with the charred wood.

A Taste of Elegance and Refinement

The first sip of Angostura 1787 is an experience in itself. The rum glides effortlessly onto the palate, showcasing a perfect harmony between its inherent sweetness and a delightful layer of complexity. The initial burst of sweetness is reminiscent of ripe, sun-dried fruits like prunes and apricots, followed by a gentle wave of caramel and toffee. These sweeter notes are then complemented by a touch of oaky spice, lingering pleasantly on the tongue. The influence of the burnt oak barrels becomes more apparent here, adding a hint of vanilla and a whisper of smoke, creating a truly captivating taste profile.

A Finish that lingers with Distinction

As you savour the final throes of the Angostura 1787, a luxuriously long and satisfying finish takes hold. The sweetness softens, giving way to a touch of honeyed richness and a hint of brown sugar. A subtle note of new leather emerges, adding a touch of elegance and sophistication to the overall experience. The lingering warmth of the oak spice ensures a truly memorable conclusion.

Unlocking the Full Potential: Serving Suggestions

To fully appreciate the intricate flavours of Angostura 1787, consider sipping it neat. This allows the rum's complete aroma and taste profile to unfold gradually, ensuring a truly rewarding experience for the discerning drinker.

For those who prefer a touch of dilution, a small splash of chilled, filtered water can help open up the rum's aromatic qualities further. Adding a single, large ice cube is another option, but be mindful that excessive dilution can mute the rum's delicate flavours.
