Atlantico Gran Reserva Rum
Atlantico // Dominican Republic
Atlantico Gran Reserva (formerly Private Cask) is the top marque from Atlantico, a brand which distills both molasses and cane juice rums. They're aged separately, then married together and re-aged, before entering the solera-aging system. For the Gran Reserva, that results with a final blend which includes rums up to 25 years in age. The Atlantico portfolio got an update to their packaging in 2017.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
"Find a roasty, buttery and caramelized sugar nose up front, with lighter grass, sugar cane and earthy notes in the background. The palate offers molasses, butter, toffee, coffee beans and chocolate with oak having a presence as well. This leads to a smooth, burn-free finish, where you'll find a smokier profile, with burnt chocolate, vanilla and molasses."
