A characterful, light to medium bodied spirit. On the nose it has delicate notes of citrus, tropical fruits and banana. Whilst on the palate it is rounded with vanilla, gentle spices and coconut milk. This rum is light and exceptionally smooth and can be drunk on its own, in contrast to using it exclusively with mixers. This blend comprises of light and heavy rums distilled in Angostura's five-column continuous still. The rum is aged in American oak Bourbon barrels for up to 3 years. After ageing, the rum is twice filtered through charcoal to remove impurities and the golden colour it has acquired during ageing. It is then blended and bottled.
Background: In the heart of the Caribbean lie the unspoilt islands of Trinidad and Tobago, the home of Angostura Rums and Bitters. For almost 200 years Angostura has been exporting some of the world's finest spirits from this island paradise, famed for its incomparable assortment of rare and beautiful butterflies. Today, the butterfly adorns the bottle label - a colourful symbol of the unique, smooth taste of Angostura rum.
