Atlántico Rum utilizes a unique process developed by it’s 3rd generation master blender for the creation of Atlántico. It begins with the selection of the finest small batch aged rums from the Dominican Republic. Once the individual rums have been selected, they are blended together to create something truly unique. The blend is then aged further (private cask), which results in a mellower, more complex rum. From the private casks, the Rums are placed in another set of barrels for 15 to 25 years. This third aging uses the solera method most commonly used with Sherry production which guarantees consistently balanced rum. Only when the rum has reached its perfect state is it removed from the barrels and bottled by hand.
This aged blend is filtered to a clear transparent color. In the glass, a significant viscosity produces fine legs. The initial aromas of citrus and vanilla dominate. These notes are evident in the palate as well as molasses, spice and creamy caramel. The finish is notably warm and smooth.
