Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Produced in the Dominican Republic, Atlantico Private Cask is a blend of small batched rums aged up to 25 years. It is a very unique dark rum that is bottled by hand and carefully inspected. It has won several awards and has the support of Enrique Iglesias, the multi-platinum recording artist.
Nice bottle that comes i an paper box (picture).
In the glass this rum smells sweet with arrack, vanilla and fruit. The rum tastes sweet (vanilla, caramel) with a little bit of spice and a little bit of oak. The aftertaste is short and spicy.
A good rum that is easy to drink. You can use this rum as a sipper or as a blender.
Among the Dominican rums I have tasted, I enjoy this one most...as I should given its price ($34 in my area). I'm reminded somewhat of the Zaya Gran Reserva, given the heft of vanilla. I find it tremendously smooth, but to my taste this lacks the complexities of other rums in this age (and price) range - including the Zaya, the Angostura 1919 and the Kirk&Sweeney. I'm not getting a stand-out characteristic, as would be my hope for a rum in this price range
Everything the advertising and literature says about this rum falls flat. I bought two bottles, for myself and my old man (67 year old Cuban), we both had one drink and put it away. I returned my bottle. Color is beautiful. Finish is boring. There was nothing there to make me desire another drink. For a solera blend of up to 25 year old rums, this showed almost no complexity.
I was expecting even more from this bottle based on what I have heard and read about it. It has a lot of high ratings if searching around on internet. It is much better with dark chocolate! more tasty and a lot of the good taste comes forward. If you let it brief for som minutes it becomes better, based on that I change my rating to 9 instead of 8. After testing different years and bottles my experience is that it differs more then other Rum brands. As always with Rum the taste could differ and is not always exectly the same. It boecones better and bettter👍🏻
I really enjoyed this rum. Sweet, vanilla and very light. Very drinkable. In my opinion the simplicity of this rum is what it does so well. There are no surprises and what it does do, it does very well.
Not a bad drink on the rocks. Smooth, but not to sweet. My only problem is that they charged me $14 a shot.
This was the first rum I tried pure. And I fell in love with rum after sipping it. It's still one of my favorites, nice and smooth.
Dejlig nem rom at drikke, masser af karamel smag, bliver lidt for meget i længden, men en fin rom at byde ud af, når nye skal introduceres.
Very surprising for me. Good taste. Good while long night drinking in rum/whisky bar.
Full body, sweet taste, like it, but marketing is just a bit better than the content...
Decent rum, slightly hot but still flavorful. Vanilla, caramel.
Belle couleur, belle odeur, peux prendre sur glace ou en drinks
Fine smooth well balanced rum! Nose: vanilla fudge and butterscotch mixed with some exotic fruits. Palate: vanilla, brown sugar, toffee and pear in a sweet mix. Very smooth no alcohol at all on the tongue.
This is an easy and smooth rum to drink. Also very enjoyable mixed with some cola,
This is quite expensive for what it is. I'd definitely call it a flavoured rum rather than a spiced rum, in that the main flavour here is very definately rum...nothing else comes close. As a rum it's not bad. Quite smooth, a bit of aburn, but not too bad. The quality of the rum isn't bad either, though I'd say it was about medium.
After the rum, the other main flavours are oak, caramel and vanilla. If you want something cheaper, similarly smooth and medium sweet but a bit more interesting to sip, I'd recommend either Elements 8 spiced or St Aubins Vanilla. I think this is a tad bland next to them, but is still pleasant enough.
I normally drink Zacapa, but I love Atlantico, it’s less sweet vs Zacapa! It’s a good option to drink, if you want to buy a nice Ron!
Aroma placuta, gust lung de vanilie si cafea. Dupa parerea mea nu ar trebui utilizat la cocktail pentru ca ii scad calitatile.
En rom som man bör ha i sin samling, men inte mer än det, smakar givetvis inte dåligt men ger inte den smakupplevelse som jag önskar mig då jag köper en rom.
Jag hade klart högre förhoppningar på Atlantico private cask. Den är tunn och smakar inte så mycket. Kräver att man luftar den rejält innan man dricker för att ens få lite aromer och smaker.
I have never heard of this brand, but after the first bottle I was hooked! Super smooth and the price is right
Atlantico Private Cask claims to be 25 year Solera aged rum, but what a disappointment on the flavor, which is bland and the burn is so strong that a lot of 8 year old aged rums are smoother.
Had a sample tasting of this. It's unoffensive but seriously lacking complexity for a 15-25 aged Solera. At the price point being sold here in the UK there are better alternatives.
Tried it in a sample tasting at tw&s. It didn't shock me or discourage me.. that was 7+ months ago. I have yet to buy a bottle. I have others I needed to buy in it's place and not enough room to store something not going to be used everyday or on special occasions. Save your money folks.
