Quick Stop in Trinidad and Angostura

Beautiful view from the room here in Trinidad just at dusk and the clouds running down the mountain.

Angostura Aging  Warehouse
     A late arrival in Port of Spain, Trinidad and a fast Taxi ride to the House Of Angostura, but we just were to late to take any tour of the distillery.  However, we did get to visit the store and pick up a bottle of Single Barrel Rum for the evenings enjoyment here at the hotel.  

     My luck with arrivals and being able to see Trinidad in the two visits here have been squelched by late arrivals and early departures.  This visit is just the same, we arrived at 3pm this afternoon, cleared immigration and customs, and jumped into a taxi for a rocket ride the Angostura before it closed at 4:00 pm.   I was hoping to find a bottle of Angostura No. 1 to bring back to the US, but it won't be in the store until Tuesday of next week.   My luck is still the same, but I did manage to hat a buy on get one free on the Single Barrel, so it wasn't a total loss.  

  Oh well, it is off to Granada at 6:00 am and a tour of the River Antoine Distillery on the North side of the island with my friend Mike  Streeter, who I haven't seen in nearly a year.   Then it is time for the Caribbean Rum and Beer Festival for the rest of the week.   Keep watching, I'll bring your the stories as they occur while I'm in Granada.   ;o)
