Angostura Releases No. 1 Cask Series Sherry Cask Finished Rum

Angosture No. 1 Oloroso Sherry Cask

     The House of Angostura® is thrilled to announce the newest addition to its award-winning Cask Collection, No. 1 Oloroso Sherry, which will arrive this month, on 26 September, 2018.    Bottled at 40% abv, Angostura Cask Collection No.1 Oloroso Sherry has been created with a combination of techniques from the Old World and New World.  Only 16,200 bottles will be made available in select markets worldwide.  No. 1 Oloroso Sherry.  The predecessors in the No. 1 Cask Series Collection are No. 1 First Fill Bourbon (2013), No. 1 French Oak (2015) and now No. 1 Oloroso Sherry.

     This is the third edition from Angostura's Cask Collection, a range of limited edition which is entirely dedicated to rums matured in different types of casks. "Angostura® Cask Collection No.1 Oloroso Sherry is a masterwork, a one-of-a-kind rum that reaches the highest achievement in the rum world – an exquisite roundness and smoothness without sacrificing personality," says Angostura's Chief Executive Officer, Genevieve Jodhan.

     Bottled at 40% and the first rum that Angostura has matured in sherry casks, Angostura Cask Collection No. 1 Oloroso Sherry has been created with a fusion of techniques learned from the Old World and perfected in the New World. This silky smooth, complex rum is a beautiful amber with superb clarity. Warm, rounded aromas and a delicate nose of cocoa, molasses, oak and sweet prune inform the well-rounded blend, which offers flavors of woodiness, roasted nuts and hints of sherry, and a medium rounded and oaky finish.

     "The House of Angostura® has been experimenting with ageing rum in different types of casks and techniques for many years, but this is the first time we have used Oloroso Sherry Casks to mature one of our rums.  We wanted to explore the results of a rum aged in American oak with extended time in an Oloroso Sherry Cask,  the blend of aged rums was finished for nine more months in Oloroso Sherry Casks."
