Easily consumable in a bind
Day 19 of myRum Advent calendar. Probably a good mixer but since I drink all rums neat I am rating this one as such. Like most white rums they are seldom designed to be drank on their own. Still better than Bacardi though...
Duften fangede mig ikke, men jeg blev positivt overrasket over smagen på denne hvide rom.
En frisk smag af citrus og vanille. Jeg kunne forestille mig, at den er god som en blandingsrom.
The rum is from the Dominican Republic. Distilled from both molasses & sugar can juice. Shipped to the US for finishing. Crisp but still pretty smooth with hints of citrus and vanilla.
Smooth white rum that has some nice flavor that works well together. Crisp, expressive, on the sweeter side, this rum is aged from 1-2 years, so not a lot has happened in terms of complexity, or enhanced flavors, but worth paying 25$ or so. The burn may hold some drinkers back from drinking this neat, but adding an ice cube or letting it breath in your glass does alter its composition. This goes for all rums and whiskeys for that matter.
First I tasted this rum in drink called Platónico (Atlantico platino, tonic, ice, sprig of thyme) and I liked it a lot. Then I tasted it straight and it surprised me with its sweetness and smoothness. Nice rum yet it seems a little overpriced to me.
if you´re searching for a white rum with sweetness, take the ride! the atlantico platino is best at doing mixtures with a mild and sweet rum. you can drink it pure without ice and hand warmed. nice try!
One of the only clear rums I've found, that actually has a flavor. We first picked a bottle of this up in Aruba, for my wife, because she drinks rum and cokes. Of course having drank, and enjoyed the Atlantico Private Cask, I sipped a bit of this neat. I was very surprised at how smooth it was, for a clear rum.
I've started using this when I make Mojitos, it's a very good mixing rum.
It is a little more expensive than Bacardi, so if your looking for a cheap mixer then this isn't for you.
I was traveling and by the time I arrived my only option for a much needed night-cap was a Friday's across from my hotel. I asked the bartender if they had any higher end rums. He showed me the Atlantico Plantino. Admitting he didn't know much about rum, he told me he heard it was "the Patron of rums." Let's start with this; it most certainly is NOT the Patron of rums.
OK, it's not awful. It's maybe slightly better than the standard Bacardi I was about to go with. I'm not a Bacardi basher. I think Bacardi 8 is one of the best values and under rated rums available. But the standard "Superior" is what you drink in high school and college - not once you come to appreciate great rum and can afford it.
I give the Atlantico one point above Bacardi Superior because it is reasonably smooth - again compared to Bacardi, not any great rum. But I'm not sure it is rum.
I can't say it's flavorless but I'll be damned if I can identify any specific flavors. Reading others' reviews that describe the chemical additives and calling it perfume hit home with me. It has a floral scent although not taste. While it doesn't taste bad, it really doesn't taste like rum, or anything else I can identify.
There's no chance I'd ever buy a bottle of this stuff but stuck at a Friday's with few options, I'd probably order again.
No chance I'd have more than 2 out of fear that whatever chemicals are in this stuff COULD give me a nasty hang over in the morning.
A gave it a 5, and that's generous, but Bacardi gets a 4 in my book and I'll stick with this is one notch better.
