Enjoyed a bottle of Ophyum 17y from Oliver y Oliver while chilling out with my buddies in Germany. The Ophyum bottle is identical to the Vizcaya VXOP 21 bottle and even the flavor profile is 90% the same. Ophyum 17y comes in a very flimsy cardboard box. Ophyum has a bit more orange peels and a bit more peppery taste to it, and it is not as sweet as Vizcaya. Hence it earns 1 higher score. Long but pleasant afterburn.
molasses. sweet. solera.
i smell chocolate, smoke. dried fruit, vanilla.
i taste orange peel with smoke and sweetness. dried fruit with peppery mix. woody spices.
3/10 - add 5 points for all sweet rum lovers!
full body, creamy, silky, smooth. boring. sugar.
in relation to the ophyum 12 it is milder and smokier. more orange peel, less pepper.
in compare to the quorhum: less smoke, less pepper, more fruit.
The nose is butter, leather, wood, honey and some citrus fruits, the taste is mildy sweet butterscotch which turns into leather, wood and bitter orange with pepper. The aftertaste is maybe the best part, pleasant, mildly sweet turning spicy. Overall the rum is light in the the smell and taste. I have to say that Dominican rums usually do not impress me much, there is this mixture of leather and old washed wood which is omnipresent in Dominican rums (Barcelo, Brugal, Bermudez), which I do not appreciate, here it can be found too, but in reasonable amount. I guess there is some sugar added, under 20gpl I guess.
Typical solera rum from Oliver. First taste is smooth, sweet and lighter with caramel. Not complex with shorter aftertaste. Will be ok for all beginners, but experienced drinkers will miss some character. 7.5 points
En rom fra Oliver & Oliver, som minder rigtig meget om deres andre rom. Fin smag og duft, men den kommer aldrig helt op at ringe.
Vover mig op på en 8’er her. Dejlig smag, blød og rund. Klassisk Oliver & Oliver (som står bag denne samt mange andre med omtrent samme smagsnuancer).. En lukker 8’er, mangler lidt Power og længde på eftersmagen, men rigtig fin rom
