3. Angostura Cask Collection No. 1

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 producedโ€”request it at your local liquor store, or hunt down a bottle online. They should set you back about $60, or just under ยฃ40 for you British rumhounds.
