Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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
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..
Nose: Wood, some smoke, orange and caramel
Palate: smooth, a bit smoky maybe, no burn, not too sweet. Authentic and pretty harmonic, but not very aromatic and no long lasting 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.
God rom, har haft en 25 års, den når ikke den i niveau, men ganske udemærket til prisen
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.
Its a good rum, but very expensive.
You can drink it straight up or mix it, its still nice.
It’s fine, taste: light, around and soft taste, works fine for me
takova stolni rum pro kazdou prilezitost neuskodi a flaska padne hned..
...,.............. .. .. ... ... ... ...... . . ....
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
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.
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
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.
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 ...
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
Denne Rom har en dejlig sød smag, og er en af min favoritter.
It's not at my top ten but I can recommend it with a clear conscience. However, at this price level could be find better pieces.
Opthimus 18-Year er en rom med mild smag og en rødlig farve.
It's a nice Spanish-like rum. I had it straight up. It was sweet but not too sweet. It has no heavy aftertaste
My second Opthimus rum, a decent rum, medium sweet with a short after taste.
Only slightly better than the 15 yo
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.
