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....
Deze heerlijke rum van de Dominicaanse Republiek heeft een 'echte' rumsmaak van karamel, hout en vanille met ietwat alcohol in de nasmaak. Lekker zacht om puur te drinken maar wel droog.
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.
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.
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.
