It's true what it says on the bottle, 'puro Dominicano'. This rum is very much a Dominican rum, in all aspects. Full body, no-nonsense nice brown rum with a sweet and complex but simple tone. Very good rum for the price.

This is a decent rum. It drinks away good but I think it is to expensive for what you get in the bottle. The 25 year-old is much and much better!

Nose: Rich and fruity, wood, some smoke, orange and caramel. Nice.
Palate: smooth, a bit smoky maybe, not much burn, sweet and spicy. Authentic and pretty harmonic, but lass aromatic than the nose promises, and a rather short 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.

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.

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.

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.

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..

Having just sampled 25 port and 25 malt this fell a bit short. A very decent Rum, maybe I should have started at the bottom and worked up.

Enjoyed this bottle, but the value isn’t there. There are a lot of tropical fruit flavors, some sugarcane and some wood. Aftertaste is a little less pleasing and a little hot. Something bitter towards the end.

I think I paid around $80 for this. For an extra $20-$30 you can get the 25 year which is incredible.

Rhum rond, sur les épices, sucre d’orge et caramel. Beau nez, en bouche, une présence de chaleur provenant de l'alcool, ce qui lui confère un certain corps. Coté humide du sud.

Beaucoup d'arômes et d'effluves pour ce ron aux accents de bois. On ressent bien la canne à sucre.
