Default Angostura No 1

Most recent purchase, and now the most expensive and oldest rum in my collection;

Haven't tasted it as yet. I'll buy a second bottle soon and then open one of them.

I'd be tasting this one first to see if it even warrants buying a second one.

I would want one for long term keeping in any case (since it's a limited bottling) so I'll still want a second one.

I don't want to open it until I also have an 1824 to compare it to also.

im a lover of 1824 and so i bought a bottle of Angostura No1 and i have to say that Angostura made a good job!

the oak cask is deeply noticeable. he is more balanced and more smoothly. Great finishing.

If you're a fan of 1824, you might be interest in this; Angostura 1787
