Proof66 Notes

The Butterfly 5yr Gold is aged in American oak bourbon barrels. It is formerly part of the "butterfly" collection is named for Trinidad's 8,000 member butterfly collection but now the butterfly only exists as a visual on the label.

Angostura is a large company with a wide range of products. They're, perhaps, most famous for their bitters--an aromatic that is featured in many recipes including the famous and exquisite Manhattan. They also carry a line of rums (as well as owning a series of scotch and cognac labels. Angostura rums are distilled in Trinidad from molasses. Trinidad Distillers themselves make other labels of rum, including the ubiquitous Bacardi.

This was just an "ok" gold rum with not too much notable characters. Has aroma of light vanilla with hint of coconut, molasses and oak. Has very dry and unremarkable flavor with bit of burn in the finish. Although it is perfectly acceptable as mixer, there are better rums out there that packs more character than this. Simply put, this was rather boring tasting rum.

No expert by any stretch of the imagination, but this rum definitely caught me off guard. Very smooth with little burn after. It had a coconut essence in both taste and aroma. It mixed very well with Coke, and made a very pleasant Mojito. And best of all? It does not break the bank. Would definitely purchase again.
