Tasty, but not quite great
The Atlantico rums haven't quite reached their potential. This is the best of the three rums in their stable, but was still a disappointment. Not a sipping rum, but will highlight a good rum and coke.
This one takes It's time to breathe. Be too hasty and you'll get nothing but fumes and burn. Let it sit for 5 on a cube of ice and the sweet aroma of cotton candy and vanilla starts to come out. It smells sweet, and has a sweet taste, but does not leave a sweet taste behind. It finishes almost oaky as it started originally. It can be enjoyed sipped, but over ice. Just wish I could find it at a more competitive price.
this is very drinkable neat, but would be well with a splash of tonic or in a mojito, or hemingway. i might keep this around.
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.
