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...

Another company trying to associate themselves with the rich Dominican rum legacy that has produced so many quality rums. Atlantico is not one of them. Weak profile and not much flavor.

I finally picked up a bottle of this today as only one small store in the city carries it around here. There were only a few left, after being on the shelve for quite a long time, and I doubt it will be reordered so I grabbed one.

One thing to note here is that Platino is aged part from cane juice the other part is molasses. It is aged in 2 different barrels then mixed. The platino does not include any solera aging like the 2 older dark rums. Platino is simply barrel aged 1-2 years.

The final note I have here to consider is that Platino ferments Aguardiente with either the cane juice, molasses or both. This is different than the 2 older dark rums these 2 rums are fermented, aged, barreled twice then put into solera system; and then after aging for some reason mixed with unaged Aguardiente before bottling. This in some way clearly adds flavor to this rum based on what the Aguardiente is made with which could be from what I have researched nearly anything. So upfront this rum is adding flavoring and otherwise modifying its profile using Aguardiente.

I tested this spirit neat as I always do. It is also recommended neat by the producer. The nosing was rather light to my surprise. No harshness and I moved across the glass from the top to the bottom I had several different scents from a very slight dried fruit to a moderate vanilla it was hard to detect anything to be honest due to the lightness of the overall scent.

The taste does not offer much more to be honest. The main note I get is Vanilla. It starts out rather tasteless then moves to a moderate vanilla middle to a slight alcohol taste going down. There is no burn to this rum it goes down and leaves the palate shortly from entering.

This is a rum I would probably not purchase again at its price point which is fairly stable at around 19.99 a bottle. I much prefer the bacardi 1909 limited heritage edition at a lower price for a white rum and a much more flavorful unedited kick which actually tastes like rum.

Nothing but perfume from this bottle. The artificial flavor this rum gives made me flat out ask the company representative of they add artificial flavors and Splenda to this rum. He was insulted I told him make rum not perfume.

Zitrus im Geschmack und Aroma. Relativ mild im Abgang. Gemischt mit Cola kommt der zitrusgeschmack besser zur Geltung. Muss ich nicht haben da ich den Havanna anejo hierfür besser finde.

This is a very good light rum for mixing in cocktails. It has a very tame flavor and will mix well with about anything.
