Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
It's an elegant rum with excellent smoothness. Drinks very well neat with perhaps a couple drops of water to help open it up. A slightly smokey bouquet but a sweet (not too sweet, just right) initial sip followed by a dark maple / apple finish with gentle alcohol. If you find this do not pass it up.
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.
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.
Denne Rom har en dejlig sød smag, og er en af min favoritter.
God solid rum, ikke for sød, men heller ikke for whisky-agtig.
Køber gerne igen, da den hører til i alle barskabe og dermed også mit
A smooth and delightful rum, with a little alcohol bite, so it needs to get some air in the glass before drinking. The smell/taste/aftertaste is so nice, that you will have to lock the bottle away, or you will find yourself drinking it everyday.
Very good stuff. There are a lot of directions you could go with this rum, i look at it as a complex rum because of all the different flavors. Nice bottle, and worth the money spent unless you are a tight wad and in that case try beer.
I was a whisky drinker before i was infected by rums,and back then i preferred irish of scotch.As i opened the good-looking bottle of the Ophtimus 18yo,and poured a glass,let it breathe a bit,and smelled it- it was just like an irish whisky.Curious,i took a sip. It is a great rum,but the oak is overwhelming,even if its mild as a pot still irish whisky.
This was a happy surprise. I didn't feel the strong alcohol taste on this one. Medium I would say. I find the Diplomatico has a stronger Alcohol presence. I haven't tried the other years but this one really opened my eyes. Delicious. Look forward to go deep....
Dejlig "nem" rom, som smager rigtig lækkert, og hvor det kan være svært med kun et enkelt glas
Notes of vanilla and oak on the palate with aromas of fruit; figs, prunes. Long finish . This is an achievement for a middle range among Opthimus which is often considered the best.
Alkohol: 38 %
Původ: Dominikánská republika
Aroma: Typická dominikánská nasládlost. Navíc jsme u firmy Oliver and Oliver, u ní je voskově medové aroma hodně časté. Včelí plástve, trochu větrové. Mléčná čokoláda a broušené kůže. (86 b)
Chuť: Jak voněl, tak i chutná. Voskově medový, pikantně větrový, s kůží a kakaem. Jemný, uhlazený, pikantně větrový, nasládlý ale i trochu peprný. (86 b)
Shrnutí: Lahev byla mým příspěvkem do další společné akce s kamarádem. Stylově mi Opthimus dost připomíná rumy Quorhum.
It's true what it says on the bottle, 'puro Dominicano'. This rum is very much a Dominican rum, in all aspects. Full body, no-nonsense nice brown rum with a sweet and complex but simple tone. Very good rum for the price.
Sweet and Mellow as an 18 year old rum should be. Clear notes og fruit, caramel and tobacco
This Opthimus 18y is a step above its younger bro the 15y. More mature and complex, this rhum can be a good daily sipper. Small reproach, maybe a little bit too alcoholic ...
this tastes for me smooth but stronger taste with cinnamon ans spice, the end of taste is stronger
With Neutral smell at the beginning , good rum
Much better than 15, little bit sweeter and smoothier.
Wood and caramel flavors
Light cinnamon flavor. Light spice and sweetness.
Spicy mainly on the finish.
More powerful than the 3 years less mature Opthimus 15-Year
Holz und Karamell-Aromen
Leichter Zimtgeschmack. Leichte Würze und Süsse.
Würze vor allem im Abgang.
Kräftiger als der 3 Jahre weniger gereifte Opthimus 15-Year
...it was an ok and quick taste at a lokal rum store, was curious...not disapointed but not overwhelmed either.
Solid rum yet nothing fancy. There are better rums from O&O.
As all Opthimus this is a sweet and rather smooth rum.
Sweeter taste with honey, vanilla and fruit. More complex body and a bit longer aftertaste than 15y. Worth the small price difference vs 15y. But nothing special to remember - 7,5 points 😐
God rom, har haft en 25 års, den når ikke den i niveau, men ganske udemærket til prisen
Its a good rum, but very expensive.
You can drink it straight up or mix it, its still nice.
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.
