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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 8 instead of 7. 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.
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.
Einer meiner ersten Rums, den ich auf einer Karibikkreuzfahrt entdeckt habe. Ein leichter Rum bei dem die Vanille dominiert. Ein Rum für jedermann...
First time after opening it was nice. Second time after some time, there is some bad taste... So drink it quickly.
A little too bland for my taste. Nevertheless still pleasant.
Lidt sprittet, men ellers en fornuftig Rom til prisen.
Its a rum for all the sugary rum lovers, or shall one say liqueur lovers. Really, one should try some authentic rum.
Très bon nez
En bouche fumé on retrouve l'ambiance des îles. Doux et puissant après. Sucré mais sans plus. Le goût de la canne arrive petit à petit en bouche.
Nose has an unbelievable mix of vanilla, caramel, and berry. Nice and smooth taste that lacks a little flavor and depth but is nice and mild. Enjoyable spice with a long finish. I could easily sip all night but probably not in my top 10 list.
Had myself a tasting with the Angostura 1824, Atlantico and Santa Teresa 1796 and the problem for me was that I couldn't quite decide the better of the three. I found them too similar.
Nice enough bottle, full of additives. But at this price point what did you expect? Good product? You may love this or you may walk away reminded that you get what you pay for.
Yes the rum is good...but it tastes the same like so many others. I am very subjective with my rankings, I think thats the point. I want a rum to tell me something, I want the master blender to have some idea, invention, to create something unique, not just another same stuff that will be always sold well. Sorry for the frustration, it had to get out. Just a coinsidence it came while rating Atlantico, nothing personal :)
Bon rhum, mais trop doux à mon gout. Un peu plus de puissance et de longueur en bouche en aurait fait un très bon rhum. Néanmoins, je conseille de le découvrir au même titre que le Quorhum 12 ans, le Dos Maderas PX 5x5, l'Angostura 1919 ou que le Millonario 15 ans.
Very smooth and soft Solera, round taste, soft finish a day distinct smell of Melasse and sugar
I like this one. Great flavor and smooth. Easy to drink.
Voni trochu stadce (vanilka, karamel, javorovy sirup) ale v chuti neni, coz je super. Je hodne prijemny na piti, zatim jeden z nejlepsich dominikanskych rumu, co jsem pil
Vůně ovoce, příjemná nepříliš sladká chuť. Po polknutí hřeje, ale příjemně.
