The best price I've seen in a while for my favourite rum, currently £24.74 on Amazon.

In 1932 a great fire destroyed the Trinidad & Tobago Government Rum Bond. Joseph Bento Fernandes master blender and owner of Fernandes Distillery seized this opportunity and bought the charred casks of rum only then to discover that this rum had aged and matured magnificently. This prized rum was skilfully blended and called 1919 "Super" Premium Rum (1919 being the year the rum was casked). As expected, this rum was soon in great demand. This demand eventually spread overseas through a most interesting set of circumstances. With the declaration of World War II in 1939, Trinidad and Tobago troops volunteered to serve on the battlefronts in Europe. The Company decided to send a bottle of the 1919 "Super" Premium Rum on a regular basis to each of our airmen serving overseas. Through their generosity they soon came to share our rum with their foreign colleagues - and thus our product became known in the wider world and our 1919 "Super" Premium Rum came to symbolize the spirit of Trinidad & Tobago.

would this be suitable as a mixer with Gin?

I usually drink Angostura on the rocks and don't really drink gin tbh but hopefully someone else might be able to advise you...

FWIW, some ideas for cocktails can be found on these pages:

I've never drank that, will have to keep an eye out for the bottle at local off licence as it don't look like any of the major supermarkets stock Diplomatico Venezuelan rums...

Although the Reserva Exclusiva has been aged for 12 years so should really be compared to Angostura 1824 angosturarum.com/Bra…824

Agreed, definitely a waste to sully this with cola like the cheap rums!

Diplomatico is sensational!

My favourite is Matusalem Gran Reserva 15 but I think that's too sweet for some!

Hot deal by the way. I have only had Angostura once so might give it another bash.
