Now this is some good stuff
molasses. sweet candy.
i smell orangepeel, almond, toffee and caramel.
i taste much less wood than in the 25. a low amount of spiciness overall. smooth, creamy, soft. raisins. and grape.
9/10 if you like it sweet.
in the base it is an opthimus, in the end it is softer, than the range.
Poured down the hatch the entire bottle of Opthimus XO while in Santo Domingo. This is a whisky lovers rum. If you are a whisky fanboy, add 2 points to the score. To me, there's too much oakiness to the nose and to the palate. Very nice aged dark rum flavors are unfortunately masked behind the overpowering oak. Nice standard Opthimus styled bottle design with a numbering. Very dark mahogany color, almost reddish. Mild afterburn, but even oakiness at that stage.
A bit of sticky alcohol in the beginning but after a while you can smell nice sweet aromas of toffee and vanilla. You also get some almond and oak.
In mouth you can taste fruit, spice and oak. Too much oak for my taste. The aftertaste is long with lot´s of oak.
