Angostura 1919

Angostura 1919 is an amazing rum from Trinidad! It is not as sweet as one might expect a rum to be: it features very decent flavours reminding more of gentle whiskies, but still sweeter. For those of you that can't decide between rum and whisky, this is what you should buy, right now!

Post-processing was a little tricky here. That nicely blurred and colourful background is my LED TV showing a fireplace video from youtube. The colour temperature of my TV is highly different from the tungsten lights I've used for illuminating the scene, so I had to re-colour the background to some more neutral colours (check the original image for comparison). Maybe I somewhat exagerated with the sharpness on the glass, but I like it! You'll also notice that I increased the blur on the bottle a little, while still keeping the label readable.

Browse the images on this site by clicking on one or more tags. When clicked, a tag becomes active (or inactive). Active tags will restrict the thumbnails on the bottom of this popup to images that have all of the currently active tags assigned. A tag that is assigned to the image currently visible is shown with a  blue background . Tags will be grayed out if none of the currently selected images have that tag assigned. Tags with a serif font designate an image gallery, i.e. images that are related to each other because they were e.g. taken during the same trip.
