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.
This rum is trying to be sophisticated and appeal to the masses, it fails miserably in my opinion.
Artificial flavours abound , vanilla , tons of toffee , hint of coconut , fake fruits , its got it all !
Dark amber colour in the glass , when swirled the legs stick to the side of the glass forever.. upon sipping the overriding taste is toffee and synthetic vanilla. There is some spice and oak to be found admittedly but it manages to be thin and cloying at the same time ? No complexity at all im afraid.
Then you get a heavy burning on swallowing.. so much so , it makes your lips tingle , and not in a good way ! How does that happen when this small batched rum is between 15 and 25 years old ? I think someone is telling porkies.. Its now been re branded to Gran Reserva..
If you like real rum then i suggest you give this one a miss. I dont think Enrique Iglesias knows much about rum !
The flavours say it all: They scream "I am a fake rum". Essence-queen, probably fake age statement.
Not a bad starter rum for most folks. Better than many bar level rums.
Sweet vanilla and coconut aroma, werm smooth taste, not so much complex body, average aftertaste. Good average sweet rum for fair price.
Feels like Diplomatico with its round warmth and buttercaramel. Quite oily. Scent is a bit fudgy. Good stuff
1st rhum I bought, really enjoyed and recommand it.
En rom i stil med mange af de andre rom fra Oliver & Oliver. Den er god og rund og har en god eftersmag.
Nice rom, ganske udemærket. Meget stil aá Oliver & Oliver som det er et privat vask af.
Taste 7+/10. It reminds me millonario 15 but less sweet little more oak & some better for me but similar overall. Nothing unique or special but nice....
Perfect sweetness. Soft rum that goes down nicely.
An industrialzed flavored commodity rum that is certainly not hand made. A total nothing burger ))
Going with the Atlantico Private Cask Solera tonight!
On the nose I get chocolate, vanilla, and maple.
First sip right out of the bottle was incredible. Shocked at how smooth this stuff is. Im tasting vanilla, oak, leather and maple. For a 25 year Solera I was expecting a little more complexity but as I stated in other posts, that never bothers me much as the flavors that do stand out are outstanding. Still can't get over how smooth this is. The finish has little to no burn and leaves you with a similar aftertaste. Overall great rum that I will be keeping stocked in my bar at all times. Na zdrowie! 🥃🥃✌
Well balanced, lots of vanilla and dried fruit and some arrack, but unfortunately a little too sweet for me. Once I got a bottle that tasted pure arrack more or less.
Picture: My Dom. Rep. shelf.
Easy easy to drink on the rocks and the right price for this smooth a choice
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.
