Angostura 5 Year Old Gold Rum
Entwined in Trinidad's colourful, rich heritage it is only natural that Angostura houses the island's largest butterfly collection. With over 8,000 specimens on display including several extremely rare species that have the distinction of being seen and captured only the once. These rare and beautiful butterflies, normally found amongst the sweetest sugar cane now adorn this premium range of Angostura rums.
Angostura 5 Year Old Gold Rum is a blend of light and heavy rums distilled in Angostura's five-column continuous still. The rum is aged in American oak Bourbon barrels between five and eight years. After aging individually, the rum is lightly filtered through charcoal to remove impurities, but not so much that it alters the inherently rich flavour or the wood induced, pale amber colour. It is then blended and bottled. This rum is an energetic and flavourful rum that is exceptionally smooth. It is plays an excellent role in a wide array of cocktails, contributing an attractive colour, taste and aroma to the drink. Angostura five year old gold has an attractive pale gold hue. It is a slightly sweeter and more flavour some rum. On the nose it has subtle notes of burnt caramel, spices and vanilla intermingled with an apple fruitiness. Whilst on the palate it is rich, mellow and smooth with an almost fruitcake taste profile.
