Review:  Angostura 1787 Rum

Posted by Arctic Wolf on June 29, 2022

The House of Angostura traces its beginnings to 1824 when German doctor, Johann Gottlieb Benjamin Siegert, who was then a Surgeon-General in the Venezuelan Army, created a blend of aromatic herbs which he called “Amargo Aromatico” and which would become the world-famous Angostura Bitters. Although the company he created to manufacture these bitters was originally founded in the town known as Angostura (later to be renamed Bolivar City), the company was relocated by his successors (his younger brother and son), who  moved it to Port of Spain, Trinidad in 1876.

The Angostura 1787 Rum is (like all of the Angostura Rums) produced from molasses on their five column still. Part of the rum is produced from a heavy distillate which is drawn from the multi-column still after passing through only one of the five columns. This heavily flavoured rum is aged and then blended with a more purely refined spirit which is distilled upon all five columns. Both portions of the blend are aged a minimum of 15 years in charred American oak bourbon barrels, after which each portion is hand drawn from the barrel, and blended.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review:  Angostura 1787 Rum

“… The nose is rich and heavy and as indicated my belief is that the rum relies more on the heavier distillate drawn from the first column than the rest of the Angostura line-up. This gives the spirit a certain funky quality when it is nosed which promises a full flavoured rum …”

Please enjoy my review of this funky Trinidad Rum.

Chimo!
