a 10 is to low
Speechless, nothing but perfection
This is pretty pricey and Angostura 1919 tastes about the same but a lot better.
I've also tried Angostura 1824 which is twice the price of the 1919, but the 1919 is better in my opionion, even though the 1824 is more complex and has no drawbacks.
This is a fabulous rum. Mellow. Smooth finish. Lingering aroma and flavor. Goes great with a quality cigar. However, HC 7 year is nearly as good and can be purchased in most Caribbean duty free shops for 15-20 dollars US per fifth. BTW, Angostura tastes like Captain Morgan. Skip it. Havana Club is unique.
