Tasty, but not quite great
Traveling outside of Cancun and thought I would pick up a couple bottles to take home and one to drink. This one was the drinker. Nice bottle, but somewhat lightish color, rather thin on the pour. I enjoy the vanilla dominated scent followed by a slight alcohol smell, probably from lack of aging. I enjoyed this rum mixed with coke, not quite smooth enough for me to want to drink neat. Surprisingly rum is limited in the playa del Carmen region, this close to the Caribbean. Sure they have a few riums, but not the selection I envisioned before my trip. Overall this is a pretty good choice but nothing really worth bringing home and showing off to friends or fellow Rum enthusiasts. I picked two others than I have higher hopes for.
Atlantico Reserva was such a big disappointment on the flavor, which is bland and the burn is so strong that a lot of cheaper rums are much smoother. The color is quite weak and the nose test reveals a bouquet of artificial flavors.
The rum is from the Dominican Republic. Distilled from both molasses & sugar can juice. Rums are aged seperately then blended together to be aged again for a number of years using the Solera method. Notes of butterscotch a bit of oak but also some earthy/grassy elements.
Somewhat delicate and smooth once you get around the heat. Dried fruit and vanilla to bring out the sweetness with warm spices to heat things up a tad. Nice Dominican rum just not there best example as far as complexity and flavor are concerned.
Their Private Cask is better!
