Angostura 5 years old 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 for between five and eight years.
After ageing individually the rum is lightly filtered through charcoal to remove impurities, but not so much as to alter the inherently rich flavour or the wood induced, pale amber colours. It is then blended and bottled.
This is an energetic and flavourful rum that is exceptionally smooth. It plays an excellent role in a wide array of cocktails, contributing a distinctive taste, attractive colour and delightful aroma to the drink.
Angostura 5 yr old has an attractive pale gold hue. It has subtle notes of burnt caramel and vanilla mixed with apple fruitiness. On the palate, it imparts a rich essence of chocolate and spice, with a mellow and smooth mouthfeel and an almost fruitcake-like taste profile.
