Truly a fantastic choice
Well I was in LA LA land with the Opthimus 25 year Whiskey finish, probably my favorite rum currently, great bang for your buck. I could not wait to buy the Oporto finish. Well it is good but not nearly as good as the Whiskey finish. However, after sitting a bit it took over the Whiskeys standing.
A bit sweet but not overwhelming. You can taste the Port and it has a long finish which is really important to me being the Rum Snob I claim to wanna be. Bang for your buck at $100ish it is worth the money spent. Get U some uh DAT!
Sugar: 17 GPL. I was saving this rum for my 100th rating review and it is a winner for sure! The taste profile is somewhere between the Diplomatico Single Vintage 2000 and the Rum Nation Panama 21. The major difference is that this rum is not as sweet as the other 2 rums mentioned. The effect of aging in the port cask with this rum is that it has a trace of cherry to it in the aroma and the taste. It has a nice long after burn. If you like Port and Rum then this is a must have rum. Looking forward to finding and tasting the other 25 year old blends put out by Opthimus.
This is very very good! The aftertaste of port is remarkable, and comes forward a lot more than its the case for the 15 y version. Which really suits it! Still sweet, but has a lot more character.
I'm thrilled that I have a chance to review Opthimus 25 Oporto by @opthimusrum_usa . In the glass it has a deep, dark rust color and thick sticky legs that coat the glass. The nose is full of deep scents of tobacco, leather, wood and a hint of grapes. There is no sense of astringency. This rum is thick and coats the tongue, while tickling the #umami flavor receptors and skipping over the sweet, salty, and sour receptors. At first I sense some burnt caramel and wood. After swallowing, the long finish pops with hints of port wine and leather. There is no heat on the way down, but the flavor lasts until the next dram. A wonderful rum.
After trying Opthimus 25 year and rating it a well deserved 10 I decided to try another offering from Oliver. Side by side they are very close. Both have excellent aromas, both are smooth, sweet, and flavorful. I don’t think the port finish does anything that makes this worth the extra price. I thoroughly enjoyed the regular 25 year and still rate it above this one and like it better. But make no mistake, this is truly a remarkable rum. Everyone should have a try.
Out of everything I have tried, nothing could top this Opthimus. So much aroma, flavor, smoothness with a nice port finish. The label does not lie. It was everything I had hoped it was.
Beautiful Mahagoni color
Bouquet hints of coffee and alcohol
Taste hazelnut, coffee, toffee and oak
Longlasting and really nice
A Rum of its own league, superb
2017 Bottle 57/1000
