Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I got this for € 50,- in a local store. That's maybe a bit pricey but certainly worth it! You get a well balanced rum that should be to almost everyone's liking. Nothing nasty in there, but nothing that stands out either. If it was cheaper, I would buy this one more often.
Ok rum, nothing special but decent. Nothing to remember though.
This rum was an dissapointment the first times i drank it.
But after 3-4 Times i disovered the tastes that i had missed.
This is a realy good rum!
Really more like a 6.5, but I’m feeling generous at the moment. Def heavy on the caramel and sweet note, which I’m totally fine with, but I’m not sure I would make this a go to for a sipper. Plenty smooth and tasty enough to sample though, and ultimately would do in a pinch.
As usual, I walked into one of my favorite liquor stores hoping to buy a specific one and it was not there. Browsing through what was available, I finally found a rum by Opthimus at only $46, which is still below my $50 per bottle limit. With the name of Oliver & Oliver on the box, I knew that it had to be good since I love their Vizcaya rums by the same company. Mine is bottle number 124 from 2016. It is a 15 year solera rum.
I opened it up and poured a snifter, then let it breathe for more than an hour. The aroma and taste are of caramel, with no after burn or horrible taste. It is a very good rum, but not complex enough to make it into my top ten sipping rums. It won't go to waste and I now have another expensive fancy bottle for my collection. I should be thankful that I have already found my top ten after starting out only two months ago. Thanks to all of the reviewers who guided me to the right ones.
Jantarová patnáctka z Dominikánské republiky, která se válela v sudech od bourbonu a whisky, má krásnou chuť po vanilce, čokoládě a kakau s jemným dlouhým medovým závěrem ξ;
Positivt overrasket - fin balanceret med gode nuancer
Ein wunderbarer Sommer Ron.
In der Nase, angenehme Aromen von Trockenfrüchten, Banane und Honig.
Im Gaumen werden diese Aromen noch mit einer gewissen Schärfe untermalt.
Der Abgang himmlisch.
Ein super Ron aus dem Hause Oliver&Oliver
A wonderful summer Ron.
In the nose, pleasant aromas of dried fruits, banana and honey.
In the palate these aromas are still underlined with a certain sharpness.
The departure celestial.
A super Ron from Oliver & Oliver
Lot of very sweet flavor, vanilla, custard, butterscotch. Not very complexe with pastry taste and nice aftertaste. This is a good rum for an introduction to the range Opthimus
Smooth and sweet, but not the most balanced. Lots of vanilla.
Very nice aroma - light, with fruit and vanilla tones. Taste is sweeter, but not too much. Body is simple and not much complex with more layers. Average aftertaste with honey and bourbon.
endnu en dejlig rom fra Olver og Oliver. denne er dog ikke så sød som eks. Quorhum .
bouteille de 2016, très bon, puissant, complexe. A tester
Mild und sanft, Honig und leichte Ingwerschärfe, Fruchtigkeit und Süsse.
Ein angenehmer Rum zum geniessen mit einem bleibendem Abgang.
Nose: caramel, oak, well balanced
Palate: smooth, well balanced, some sweetness, also some slight sharpness, slightly smoky, but the taste is not very voluminous and not lasting very long.
Maybe even 8.5, because it‘s really smooth.
Sugar: 29 g/l
It's a nice rum but I like the older ones better...
Den skal bare lige stå og spritte lidt af.

Enjoyed back-to-back 25, 21, 18 and 15 year old Opthimus rums this weekend. The 15 year Opthimus was such a disappointment. It was well priced for a 15 year old rum, but man is it nasty when compared to the older siblings! The burn is awful and the flavors are so immature that I would recommend skipping this one. If you want to try Opthimus for the very first time, try the 21 year old and it will set you a very good benchmark.
Opthimus 25 year 7 points
Opthimus 21 year 8 points
Opthimus 18 year 6 points
Opthimus 15 year 4 points
Sød, mild og kort eftersmag. Ikke noget power over denne.
Dear readers, i bought this bottle today in a grocercy store. Nice bottle with a real and worthy cap.
Nose: dried fruits, candy, caramel. Mouth: banana, more dired fruits, toffey. And nice and long lasting.
This will not be my last bottle of this brand.
Year 2016, bottle 2040 of 6000
for his Age this Ron as a very smooth & sweet taste Long in the Swallowing.
Smager godt, uden at være prangende. Dufter fint. Eftersmagen er begrænset
The Opthimus 15y is the entry point in the range of Opthimus. It is quite sweet and easy to drink with pastry flavor and vanilla. Not too complex, this Opthimus can be drinked with no thinking.
