Angostura No.1 16 Year Old French Oak - Cask Collection Rum, 70 cl

The second release of Angostura's Cask Collection No.1 is a 16 year old rum from Trinidad which was allowed to age for 10 years in American oak casks before being transferred over to once-used French oak casks that previously held Cognac for the final 6 years. Clearly interesting cask finishes aren't just reserved for whisky!

  • Product Description

    How life changes. Angostura Bitters were originally made by a surgeon, Dr Siegert, for his medical practice back in 1824. I doubt he had any inkling that the business would go on to change so radically- not only for the obvious reasons, but also the business would move from Venezuela to Trinidad some 50 years later. They were more renowned for their aromatic bitters until roughly 1940 when a conscious decision to increase their expertise in and production of Rum was taken.

    Tasting Notes

    Citrus is dialled down here, but it remains fruity with fig and raisin. Still quite nutty, though.
