Recommendable to most
This is a decent rum. It drinks away good but I think it is to expensive for what you get in the bottle. The 25 year-old is much and much better!
Nose: Rich and fruity, wood, some smoke, orange and caramel. Nice.
Palate: smooth, a bit smoky maybe, not much burn, sweet and spicy. Authentic and pretty harmonic, but lass aromatic than the nose promises, and a rather short aftertaste. Not as well balanced and voluminous as the 25-Year with Malt Whiskey Finish. Seems to be a bit less sweet and a bit more orangy than the 15-Year.
Color not as dark as I enjoy but vey pleasing, a hint of mystery, Taste is like it was made from the finest sugar cane, you can taste the rum on the tip of your tongue then the finish of a deep Sherry and light bourbon taste. Sip this one, light to no ice especially after a day of skiing.
Enjoyed back-to-back 25, 21, 18 and 15 year old Opthimus rums this weekend. 18 year old Opthimus is not bad at all when you drink it in isolation from the others, but the flavors are clearly lacking the depth and the smoothness when compared side by side with the 25 and 21 year olds. 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
Not bad, but I can imagine several better rums for this price, honestly I think it is not for mass of people, but rather for advanced rum drinkers. It's taste is not so rich.
Everything looked super with this one. Great bottle and nice color.. But at the first sniff.. There is alcohol.. Tasted it.. Main taste is alcohol with some nice tones underneath.. The finish is also packed with the pure taste of ethanol and some nice tones underneath.. Have to trie an older one to see..
Schönes Mahagoni im Glas.
In der Nase Vanille, Karamell und Trockenfrüchte.
Am Gaumen eifern süsses Karamell, Vanillezucker und klebrige Toffees um die Wette. Auch die Früchte geben ihr Bestes.
Im Abgang angenehm lang, das Karamell tanzt mit der Schokolade dem Sonnenuntergang entgegen.
Ein langweiliger süsser Solera aus dem Hause O&O die für mich alle gleich schmecken, süss und lecker. Der 15 Jährige ist schon gut, der 25 Järige ist spitze, braucht es da wirklich noch einen 18 Jährigen? Stehe nicht mehr so auf süsse Rum, aber mal so für ein Dessert ok.
Beautiful mahogany in the glass.
On the nose vanilla, caramel and dried fruit.
On the palate, sweet caramel, vanilla sugar and sticky toffee compete. The fruits give their best as well.
Pleasantly long finish, the caramel dancing with the chocolate towards the sunset.
A boring sweet solera from the house of O&O which all taste the same to me, sweet and delicious. The 15 year old is already good, the 25 year old is great, does it really need an 18 year old? Stand no longer so on sweet rum, but sometimes for a dessert ok.
It is an ok rum all in all.
You taste the alcohol though it is sweet. It can seem almost a bit harsh. A lot of other bottles have a more rounded-off feel when it comes to taste.
