Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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!
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
This rum has typical Oliver&Oliver signature which I like 😍 Aroma is strong with wood, raisins and fruit tones. Taste is sweet, smooth, warm and very complex. Raisin, plum, forest fruit, peach oak and many other notes you will discover with every sipp. Aftertaste is longer and pleasant. The aging in Whisky barrels is adding a bit more sweetness and interesting finish. 0.5 point better than standard 25y.
Purchased this for about $100 USD after trying the 15yr. This one is nice and smooth with a bit of a slight burn at the end. Its a bit sweet but not overpowering. I still prefer my Foursquare over thus, but it is definitely a sipper I would like to keep on hand. Definitely worth the cost.
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.
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.

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
