Ok, now I thought the 18 was tasty but this one is a whole new level of tastiness. From the nose which smells of dry fruit and sweetness to the finish it is a SOLID rum. There was no let down. Just the right amount of sweet and the smooth finishes hangs on your tongue for 7-8 minutes after you ingest it. I would highly recommend giving this guy a taste. Fantastic Rum to say the least.

A bit sharp in the nose, but very smooth in the mouth.Long lasting aftertaste, very good balance not nearly as sweet as other Opthimus. Im a fan!

Rum tasting in the Finnish wilderness with my good old friend continued with Opthimus 25y Single Malt Finish. Unique bottle and label design. Mahogany color. Sweet oak to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Sweet and mild burn at the end. Very well done Oliver y Oliver.

Für mein 200. Rating eine nette Flasche.

Im Glas schönes rotbraunes Mahagoni mit Kupfer Reflektionen.
In der Nase eine herrliche Tiefe die Dir das Wasser im Munde zusammen laufen lässt. Kandierte Früchte in Vanillesauce, karamellisierte und getoastete Hölzer liegen auf moosig torfiger Erde. Wow, jede Minute und jedes Grad wärmer bringt neue Düfte hervor.
Im Gaumen gleitet eine Armada von Aromen süss (34 gr.) und sanft über die Zunge. Eine ganze Palette von tropischen Früchten wie Banane, Mango, Papaya aber auch weisse Trauben und rote Beeren werden von Karamell und Vanille zart umhüllt. Es sind aber auch herbere Aromen mit im Spiel so wie harziges Holz, angesengte Sägespäne, zart-bittere Schokolade, Waldhonig und frisch geschnittenes Gras.
Im Abgang richtig süss und fast klebrig, herrlich und lang bleibt Karamell und Kakao.
Sicher einer der Besten aus dem Hause O&O und eine Nuance Vielschichtiger als der "Normale" 25-yo. Das Whisky-Fass tut hier wirklich gute Dienste. 9+
Ein absolutes Muss für Süss-Rum Liebhaber, passt sicher Gut zu einer herben Zigarre. 163/1500 2016

For my 200th rating a nice bottle.

In the glass beautiful red-brown mahogany with copper reflections.
In the nose, a wonderful depth that makes your mouth water. Candied fruits in vanilla sauce, caramelized and toasted woods lie on mossy peaty soil. Wow, every minute and every degree warmer brings forth new fragrances.
On the palate, an armada of flavors glides sweet (34 gr.) and gently over the tongue. A whole range of tropical fruits such as banana, mango, papaya but also white grapes and red berries are delicately wrapped in caramel and vanilla. But there are also herbier aromas in the game such as resinous wood, scorched sawdust, tender-bitter chocolate, forest honey and freshly cut grass.
In the finish really sweet and almost sticky, delicious and long remains caramel and cocoa.
Certainly one of the best from O & O and a shade more complex than the "normal" 25-yo. The whiskey barrel is doing really good service here. 9+
An absolute must for sweet-rum lovers, sure to go well with a tart cigar. 163/1500 2016

Foarte placut, fin si aromat, un rom desavrsit in bunul stil Oliver&Oliver. Intr-adevar se simte vechimea de 25 de ani. Un rom puternic, dulce si nu prea.. Only On The Rocks!

If you're into more complex rums, this indeed is an awesome choice. I can also recommend to try different vintages. The 2015 is much different than the 2013 for example. What an adventure!

love it....prefere the Oporto Finish but the Whiskey Finish is perfect in combination with a cigar..

Medium-bodied and contemporary, this rum can be defined as opulent and exquisite. Strong mahogany color, intense aromas and an exceptional bouquet of cranberries, herbs and toasted woods, finished with a silky syrupiness flavor. Aged in American and French oak barrels

Bought on the strength of the reviews here and wasn't disappointed. Initially quite sweet but mellows out after a taste or two. Can't say I can pick out anything particularly 'malt whiskey's barrel about it but very nice nonetheless

Opthimus, Markant sødme, nougat smelter på i tungen, meget fed og fyldig rom. Krydderi fra malt whiskyen. Eftersmag: Lang, fyldig eftersmag.

I’ve tried several of the other rums offered by Opthimus and have never been disappointed. The standard 25 year was the first rum I gave a 10 rating, and it is well deserved. This 25 year malt whiskey finish is the best rum I’ve tried. It has all the flavor and smoothness of the standard 25 but is a little more complex and robust. An absolute must try for anyone who drinks rum. It will be a staple in my liquor cabinet from now on.

Why did I wait so long to try. Nice bite on the tongue followed by a smooth velvety coating of vanilla, oak, buttery molasses with hint of orange. Ohh so good. Similar to Zacappa XO but a step up.
Highly recommended.

Nose: voluminous scent of caramel and some orange. And some hints of smoke.
Palate: smooth, warm, voluminous body. Very well balanced, almost no burn. Very natural and authentic. Not too sweet taste (althrough it contains 34 g/l of added sugar) I like this one.

8,8 - 9

Helt fantastisk rom som er yderst kompleks. Den har det hele.

Posted over 1 year ago by Anders Ravn Jørgensen from Denmark with 86 ratings

Så vild en rom, hvis du kommer i nærheden af denne så køb den, endnu bedre end den almindelige 25 års. Bør være i et hvert barskab trods prisen (kan fås til 700 kr i Tyskland)

The very first sip was a bit disappointing for me, I just expected a little bit more. But then it reveals its potential, it's very well balanced, colorful strong, dark, longlasting smooth aftertaste

Posted over 1 year ago by Stefan Persson (PREMIUM) from Sweden with 149 ratings

It’s a complex Ron with lots of nice notes, but the strength (43%) don’t quite balance up the sweetness. Lots of vanilla and you can clearly feel whisky notes in your nose and in the end. With a little less sweetness it should have been a top rate.

Mouth watering taste. Rich, smooth, perfect balance of spices and sweets. I’ld drink it every day

Znakomity! Nie wiedzieć czemu nie spodziewałem się zbyt wiele po tym rumie. Błędnie. Nie rozlewają zbyt wiele tych butelek, kolor znakomity. Zapach akurat nie jest najmocniejszą stroną, ale muszę przyznać, że kompozycja, balans, smak...świetny. Czuć te 25 lat, czuć lekki finisz whisky. Mimo to bardzo łagodny, ale ciekawy i dość długi posmak.

Har dog ikke smagt Port finish, men denne er bedre end 25eren. Lidt fed i smagen på den gode måde og tilpas sød.

I recently had the chance to taste this delicious rum Opthimus 25 years Malt Whiskey Finish, but in principle as is already recurrent in Oliver & Oliver the presentation is rarely the best, on the other hand the mahogany color that presents is very attractive; The aroma of vanilla, fruits and a little coffee. By tasting it you can feel the great taste, soft, warm and with light notes of whiskey.

Hace poco tuve la suerte de probar este riquísimo ron Opthimus 25 años Malt Whiskey Finish, pero en principio como ya es recurrente en Oliver & Oliver la presentación muy rara vez es la mejor, por otro lado el color caoba que presenta es muy atractivo; el aroma a vainilla, frutas y un poco de café. Al probarlo puedes sentir el estupendo sabor, suave, cálido y con ligeras notas de whisky.

This one is just amazing! The finish in the whiskey barrel provides a incredibly balanced taste. Sweeter than many may like but the vanilla tones and smooth finish makes this sipping rum a desert replacement in my house.

Husker ikke nærmere bedømmelse da det er et godt stykke tid siden jeg smagte den og blot gav en karakter.
