Angostura - 7 Year OldSilky Smooth
A blend of light and heavy rums distilled in Angostura's five-column continuous still. The rum is aged in American Oak Bourbon barrels for between seven and ten years.
After ageing, the rum is lightly filtered through charcoal to remove impurities, but not so much as to alter the inherently rich flavour or the dark, wood induced. After blending it is returned to the barrel to allow the blend to marry.
This silky smooth rum comes into its own after a minute or so in the glass and should be first sampled neat to allow the rum to reveal its true characteristics and provenance.
Angostura 7 yr old has a pleasing dark amber hue. It is a powerful, robust and flavoursome rum. On the nose it has subtle flutterings of treacle, chocolate and a gentle smokiness, whilst on the palate it is rich, intense and powerful, with a tantalizing hint of burnt spice.
