Angostura 5YO Rum - A class act

The House of Angostura is one of the Caribbean's leading spirits producers, famous for its market leading bitters and premium rum range. Angostura has been producing fine rums for 130 years, mastering the art of ageing and blending. Angostura’s superior rums are helping to redefine the rum category as one with equal sophistication, craftsmanship and artistry to spirits like whisky

Angostura 5 Year Old rum is a blend of light gold rums, aged for a minimum of five years in used bourbon oak barrels and distilled in Angostura’s multi-column continuous still in Trinidad. Carefully filtered through charcoal before blending, this is a luminescent clear rum with subtle golden highlights. 

What's it like?

Colour: a golden luminescent colour with green and orange reflections on the edge of the glass

Nose: a strong, aromatic nose with light woody notes of coconut, caramel, lemon zest and a hint of vanilla

Taste: soft and delicate with nuances of tropical fruits, mangoes and banana

“Our rums are 100% Trinidadian, made in one distillery on one island. Much like a single malt only better.” 
— John Georges Master Distiller
