No. 1 Once Used French Oak, is the second edition of Angostura’s Cask Collection. An exquisite, silky smooth complex blend – created with a fusion of techniques learnt from the Old World and perfected in the New World.
Initially aged for a minimum of 10 years in American Oak casks, the rums were then artfully combined by The House of Angostura’s Master Blender and re‐casked into carefully selected French Oak casks that were once used for aging cognac. The rum was then left to mature for an additional 6 years. There are just 15,030 bottles on the market.
For this special bottling of No. 1, Angostura produced a unique recipe with mature, high-quality aged rums – selected with care and precision, each chosen for their unique flavour and characteristics.
