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 is smooth but very thin. Not at all complex. Short finish. Not much bite. Predominantly vanilla. Tastes sweetened. Might mix well. Does not sip well.
Not sure where the aging helps this rum, but is only slightly better than the Atlantico light. This does not live up to the strong Dominican rum legacy that has produced so many quality rums.
Vůně OK , ale chuť a barva nic moc . Dokonce se mi zdálo , že je rum trochu zakalený. Láhev jsem dopil , kupovat už jí nebudu .
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 !
Atlantico Private Cask claims to be 25 year Solera aged rum, but what a disappointment on the flavor, which is bland and the burn is so strong that a lot of 8 year old aged rums are smoother.
Nice enough bottle, full of additives. But at this price point what did you expect? Good product? You may love this or you may walk away reminded that you get what you pay for.
Try to get a well lit shot from the front of the rum label
