Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Sweet, smooth, vanilla, but not much complexity overall. Fine, nothing special
Picked thus up in P. Plata duty free recently, $55.
Very classy bottle, handwritten.
Lovely colour and very smooth on the tongue. A little bit of spice, not too sweet, vanilla, coffee and slightly orange.
Top class sipping rum.
Enjoyed back-to-back 25, 21, 18 and 15 year old Opthimus rums this weekend. Surprisingly the 25 year old was not the best of the bunch. The 21 year old was the goldilocks with a very nice flavor profile and super smooth finish with hardly any burn. 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 the best one from Oliver Oliver distillery. I expected something better but still really good rum. Classic sweetness from Dominican Republic with light alcohol burn for me. Give it a try.
This rum really went down easy. I guess that's because it's only 38%abv.
Has a sweet honey nose, with just a hint of bourbon and oak. Taste is also nicely sweet, with a hint of caramel. Not quite as good as the Opthimus 25 imho, but a very good rum.
Smooth woody premium rum in stylish "pharmaceutical" bottle
But twice cheaper Atlantico private cask is quite similar...
My first Opthimus and I have to try also his older brothers. Clasic Oliver aroma with hints of oak, caramel and honey. Rum in mouth is super-smooth with flavours of vanilla, sugar cane, chocolate and oak. Simply awesome. My top 5.
This is a rum that walks the spanish route. Sweet and smooth with caramel and dried fruit.
Having tried and rated both the 25 year and 25 year port finish I thought I would try this. All around great. Smooth, great sweet taste with just a little lingering aftertaste. Lacks just a little in complexity than the 25 year and is equally as good as the port finish. Give it a try, it won’t disappoint.
Vona plna rumova, vanilka, melasa, susene ovocie, ceresne. Chut zodpoveda voni, sladka, vyvazena, jemna drevitost, alkohol takmer necitit, len prijemne hreje v hrdle. Dalsi skvely kusok z dielne Oliver&Oliver. Odporucam.
Opthimus 21 éves rum, amelyre Romero mester ráírta, hogy melyik palack... Akár egy jó Zacapa rumra emlékeztet engem, a többi tételük is kíváncsivá tett :)
excellent, plus doux que son petit frère de 15 ans et plus complexe aussi, j'adore
Tobacco in flavor, walnut in the after aroma. It reminds me of Esclavo, it is one of the better O&O offerings. It is maybe a bit flat with too much sweetness, 25y is better balanced thanks to the extra maturation.
Deosebit, arome puternice dar un aftertaste mediu. Este suficient de fin mai ales on the rocks!
I expected something better but still really good rum. Excellent, but not as good as the 25yr.
I really like this rum a lot. Great mixture of light spices and roynd finish. Sweet but not too sweet. One of my favorite.
En god rom med smag af vanille, men også et strejf af kokos. En lidt sødere rom, men det trækker ikke ned. Var i tvivl om det skulle være et 9-tal, men måske forventningen om noget mere skuffede nok lidt. Giver den nyt forsøg på et tidspunkt med en mere neutral indgangsvinkel. Men stadig en rigtig rigtig god rom, der kan anbefales.
It's more spicy than the 18 and the 25 year old. I liked that
Magic in a bottle. Sweet, vanilla, honey and caramel
Igen ligesom 15års en meget mild rom. Dog lidt mere og længere eftersmag.
En virkelig god Rom efter min smag har en god og lang efter smag
This bottle is very nice and the label amazing, beautiful with handwrite numbers.
The coulor of the rum is very nice. It's a easy smooth rum to drink. I smell some smook and sweet.
I taste some bitter, woody and sweetnes.
Ok rum to sipp on.
Well, it is National Rum Day here in the states and I thought that I'd bring out the best. I am very fortunate & grateful to own these terrific bottles. Opthimus 21 is lighter in color than Paraiso. Nose is sweet with hints of caramel & banana. Nice, lingering finish with caramel notes. More burn on the backend than Paraiso. I sipped both "neat." Opthimus 21 is a terrific rum.
