Easily consumable in a bind
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.
In the nose there are hints of spices and fruits.
On the palate you can recognize chocolate on the first sip. Lately there is toffee and vanilla - way too much vanilla.
This is not really a sipper, but sure can be good for some mixing.
Rating would better if there was not so much annoying vanilla.
Hodnotím novšiu verziu v okrúhlej fľaši s modrým pásikom. Pokiaľ viem ide o iný rum ako staršia verzia v štvorcovej fľaši.
Očakával som klasický ostrejší biely rum. Už pri ovoňani to bolo niečo úplne iné. Sladká vôňa vanilkového smotanového krému a citrusov. Chuť podobná so zaujímavým záverom. Veľmi príjemné prekvapenie. Neviem či za to môže kombinácia melasového a agricole rumu alebo dozrievanie v sudoch po víne Tempranillo, ale výsledok mi veľmi chutí. Zaujímavý bol mohol byť aj v drinkoch.
- vůně jemná, nasládlá, vanilka
- chuť nasládlá, jemná, ke konci se dostaví příjemná štiplavost - blend melasy a čerstvé cukrové třtiny
Jeden z top bílých rumů, jemně nasládlý, příjemně pitelný
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...
Being a Margarita and Caipirinha Lover I wanted to created a Mojito based on a good white rum. This one was my first try some month ago. Also in retrospective I did good choice with the Atlantico. Me and my guests all enjoyed the cocktails very much and many of them. Nobody had a significant hangover. Theres plenty fruit and citrous note in that rum. Maybe a bit to much sweetness but only a hint. No intrusive spirit taste nor sharpness. I didn't sip it because I never do.
A friend of mine bought me this rum as present. I normally don't drink white rum Unless I'm mixing it in a drink. And it's usually a cheap warm since the Coca-Cola or whatever I'm using to mix overpower the taste of the rum anyway. I made some rum and cokes using this for me and my wife. What a surprise!. Had a nice clean taste and a slight hint a vanilla on the end. I was shocked that it was that tasty. I probably won't buy a bottle of this and will continue to drink cheap white rum like Bacardi, however, I suggest that somebody try this at least once this way you know the difference.
