Angostura 1824 12 Year Old Rum
The rum itself has rich bronze color with a seamlessly smooth texture and well rounded, medium to full body. The bouquet is seductively rich with aromas of sweet molasses, vanilla, honey, spice and cognac-like notes. The palate of Angostura 1824 offers mouth-watering flavors of honey, fruit, chocolate, spices and herbs. The finish is remarkably long and flavor-packed. Angostura is a Trinidad and Tobago distillery known for its aromatic bitters and rum. The business has its origins in Venezuela in the 1820s when German immigrant Doctor Johann Siegert perfected a recipe for aromatic bitters to use in his medical practice as Surgeon General to the armies of Simon Bolivar. He lived in the town of Angostura - now named Ciudad Bolivar – which gave the company its brand name. The closely-guarded formula for the bitters does not contain any angostura bark flavoring.
