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.
While I recognize this is a solid run, I don’t care for the flavor profile. It’s a little chemically or medicinal finish to me. It may be the Jamaican style I don’t care for. It reminds me a little of the way a peaty scotch finished. I prefer bourbon and American / Canadian whiskey to peaty scotch, so that probably explains it. It’s not the age either I don’t think since I prefer the El Dorado 12 to the 15 or 21.
This definitely has plenty of Jamaican "funk". When that's what I'm in the mood for, this is my go-to sipping rum. Smooth, rich and complex with plenty of character. Fruit and spice is complemented by a strong woody flavour with leathery overtones. It also makes a VERY tasty rum & coke, but that feels like a waste.
I've given it 8 due to the modest pricing (in context of the quality). If it cost 30% more, I'd probably give it a 7.
The 12 year is equal to the 15 year and almost as tasty as the 21 year. Therefore, you get the most bang for your buck sticking with the 12 year. Great taste and aroma!
Great rum, not too sweetened, lot of flavours and aroma. I think this is how rum is supposed to taste like ;)
Perfect for sipping. This is one of my favorites when I’m tired of the cola thing and just want a clean rum taste. The smokey carmel flavor is perfect for relaxing on the beach.
