3. Angostura Cask Collection No. 1
angostura-cask-collection

Angostura‘s 1919 and 1824 blends are old favorites, but we’re always up to try something new from Trinidad’s top (well, only) rum distiller. The first in their Cask Collection of limited-edition rums, No. 1 does not disappoint. A blend of eight to 10 year old rums, it has the smooth flavor we’ve come to expect from Angostura but a distinctive bite courtesy of an aging process involving reused bourbon casks. Don’t get used to it, though: only 9,600 bottles are being produced—request it at your local liquor store, or hunt down a bottle online. They should set you back about $60, or just under £40 for you British rumhounds.
