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.
Ritter Sport Run raisin on the nose - not surprisingly, as that is made with Jamaican rum. But it does indicate chocolate and raisin notes. In time, vanilla also appears in the smell.
On the palate those notes reoccur, but bolstered by just a bit of that Jamaican funk. Maybe orange peel as well? Actually seems a bit sweet to me for a Jamaican rum, but I quite enjoy it.
Rich and sweet and lightly fruity feel which goes down very well. Rich gold colour leaves you desiring more.
I compared this back to back with Appleton Signature, and this is a much more refined rum. Notes of caramel and wood on the nose, but not as much funk as other Jamacian rum. These notes carry through to it's taste. It does still have a bit of a bite for a sipping rum.
Appleton is a very popular brand here in Ontario, Canada and some people hate anything that happens to be popular. Not me; I just want to drink what I like....and I really like this rum. I find it quite versatile if somewhat tricksy.
Nose: plenty oranges and orange zest, cherries, oak, vanilla, tobacco, and a little overripe banana
Palate: drier than you might expect from the aromas, strong oak presence, brown sugar, a bit more orange, bananas
Finish: medium length, molasses, coffee, oak spices (cinnamon, cloves)
This is no one-trick pony.It's complex enough to sip neat, and it works a treat in a rum Old Fashioned.
