Truly a fantastic choice
Unhiq XO Malt Rum, solera up to 25 years. Dominican Rep. This is already a more expensive rum at a price of around 100 EUR for a 0.5 (!) Liter bottle.
I was quite disappointed by the packaging of rum. At this higher price, a relatively cheap blue-silver cardboard is used. The bottle itself looks better and has a beautiful mahogany base.
The color of rum is very dark (dark mahogany). The consistency is relatively thick. After opening, it shows a strong smell with a fairly strong smoky aroma. I could smell vanilla, honey, molasses syrup, dark chocolate and tobacco.
The taste is very sweet on the first drink, but over time the sweetness fades and there are also subtle hints of bitterness. The taste is dominated by vanilla, caramel, honey, coffee and tobacco smoke. In the background you can smell ripe to overripe fruits and also spices (licorice, pepper).
The aftertaste is long, sweet and delicate.
One of the best rums I've ever drunk.
Overall rating: 9.5 out of 10
You can enjoy the smell for hours. Almonds and vanille. Sweet tobacco. Sweet - not too sweet - with some oak. A bit similar to Quorhum 30 aniversario.
The taste is even more excellent. Dried fruits, more tobacco, coffee and chocolate. Goes on and on for so long.
One of the best melasse rhum. I love Oliver s rhum Opthimus 25, Opthimus 25, cubaney 30 and. I think it is the best of the four rhum. 1 uniqh xo 9.6, 2 quorhum 30 9.3 and esclavo xo cask 9, 3 , 3 cubaney 9.2., Opthimus 25 whisky finish 9.3, 5 Opthimus 25 9.2, Opthimus 25 Porto finish 9.0, puntacana xox 8.9, présidente 23 8.8, cubaney 25 8.5, cubaney 21 8.2., Opthimus 21 8.2.
My best society Oliver Oliver....
Everything here is good. Incredibly smooth and the flavor profile is a rich and dark, almost sorghum like notes. There is also some caramel and vanilla hints there, but more a bit in the background. Wonderful very subtle spice on the finish which lasts to the next sip. So smooth, must be careful as can down this quickly without realizing.
That’s how I like my rums
Sweet but not too much,smooth.
I have 2019 vintage, only 2000 bottles produced.
Comparing previous vintages it is less sweet, which probably makes it more acceptable.
Tried the Unhiq XO and Punta Cana XOX back-to-back and what a big difference between the two of them. Unhiq XO has a very nice and unique bottle and label design. Deep mahogany color. Unhiq XO has a fabulous surprise to the nose, although it's a tad strong to the nose. Very nice flavor profile but a bit of a burn at the end. It's a very smooth rum.
