The rums have been aged in once used 200 litre American Oak Bourbon casks and are 100% Trinidadian and come from a single distillery on one Island. Legacy by Angostura was created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Independence of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago where it will be made available in August.
