The nose is very full and sweet with thick caramel, fudge and vanilla. Nice but not a lot happening. I get the same notes in the taste, perhaps supplemented by dried dates. It's very sweet and smooth. The finish even things a bit with a long, rounded barrel note, but to me, it's not quite enough to counter the massive sweetness. A shame that Oliver & Oliver went overboard with the added molasses, as I think it slightly ruins what seems like a nice rum.

Si le paradis des rhums existe le mien est en république dominicaine chez OLIVER I Oliver, j'apprécie énormément leurs rhums et celui ci tout particulièrement.

Lovely rum, sweet, complex, lot of taste, no alcohol feel - and do miss that a little bit.

Eigentlich gar nicht so verkehrt und auch bei etwas mehr Zucker war er trinkbar und nicht UNendlich süß. Allerdings hatte ich deutlich mehr erwartet wenn ich sehe was der kostet. Auch die 25 auf dem Etikett ließ mich auf mehr hoffen. Daher insgesamt leider nur 4/10.

It's very smooth. Easy drinkable and very nice. Not spicy at all

Très bon. Se déguste sec.
A mon gout on sent un peu trop le feu de l'alcool pour vraiment apprécier toutes ses qualités.
La note de fin est longue en bouche, ça reste un très bon rhum.

My second Opthimus. After the 15y younger Brother.
Great stuff.
Some floral notes, wood in the nose. Honey and toffee in the mouth, and wood again, but very nice. And a smooth aftertaste. Good stuff.
Now I'm waiting to taste the Port and Whisky finish rum.
Year 2016, bottle 249 of 3000


Enjoyed back-to-back 25, 21, 18 and 15 year old Opthimus rums this weekend. Surprisingly the 25 year old was not the best of the bunch since it had a very strong flavor profile without anything clearly identifiable and the after taste was like an old cellar. The burn was also surprisingly strong for a 25 year old rum. 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.

Opthimus 25 year 7 points
Opthimus 21 year 8 points
Opthimus 18 year 6 points
Opthimus 15 year 4 points

Got a little taste at the local tiki rum bar. Really delicious. Will need to come back for more.

En meget lækkert, sød og dejlig rund rom, men giver stadigvæk et godt "spark" når den lander på tungen. Lige en rom efter min smag. 8,5 er min vurdering, men ikke mulighed herfor i ratingen. Top 5 i min rombog

Endnu en god rom fra Oliver & Oliver. Dejlig tyk og rund smag og duft.

Hvis jeg kunne ville jeg give den 8,5.

Fad, fad og fad fylder næsen, og dette tager man da også med i eftersmagen. Den her rom... den er klasse! CHOKO CHOKO FANT!! Giv den 5 minutter, duft til og smag. Jeg er ikke bekendt med prisen, men har nydt 5 cl hos svigerfar. Alt under 1000kr er pænt her, og 9 stjerner.

The brothers Oliver again exceeded. Simply sensational many fragrances, which harmoniously ...

Very nice and smooth with a hint of pleasant afterburn.

Ein Wunderwerk aus dem Hause Oliver & Oliver.
Ein sehr geschmeidiger Ron mit 1001 Aromen, ein Solera mit Charakter,
leider auch mit viel Zucker (35 gr./l) aber egal, ziehe ihn einem Millonario XO,
Zacapa XO oder Zaya (alte Version) vor. Eigentlich eine 9.5 in der Wertung.
Schöne Mahagonifarbe im Glas.
In der Nase herrliche Düfte von Vanille, zarte Holznoten,
tropische Früchte und ein Hauch dunkle Schokolade.
Im Gaumen ganz mild und perfekt ausbalanciert. Toffe und Vanillearomen treten kräftiger hervor,
auch die dunkle Schokolade wird intensiver.
Honig und zarte Holztöne sind nebst weiteren Aromen zu entdecken
Im nie endenden Abgang bleibt ein Aroma von roten Beeren und Zuckerwatte.
Einfach ein genialer Ron für diesen etwas gehobenen Preis.

A wonder from Oliver & Oliver.
A very supple Ron with 1001 aromas, a solera with character,
unfortunately also with a lot of sugar (35 gr./l) but no matter, prefer it to a Millonario XO,
Zacapa XO or Zaya (old version). Actually a 9.5 in the valuation.
Beautiful mahogany in glass.
In the nose delightful fragrances of vanilla, delicate wood notes,
tropical fruits and a touch of dark chocolate.
Very smooth and perfectly balanced in the palate. Toffee and vanilla aromas are more pronounced,
even the dark chocolate becomes more intense.
Honey and delicate wood tones are to be discovered along with other flavors
In the never ending finish remains a flavor of red berries and cotton candy.
Just a brilliant Ron for this slightly higher price.

Rating kommer i morgen nå jeg er blevet ædru eller lige efter ikke sød

Volle smaak van karamel en chocolade en toch niet te scherp. Goede afdronk.

Für mich eine der besten Rums. Gestern ein Glas probiert und er hat mich sofort restlos überzeugt. Ist sein Geld wert. Sehr mild und gehaltvoll, lang im Nachklang!

This is allways a Nice treat, sweet and lightly roasted caramel. Yummy

molasses. sweet rum.
i smell smoke and chocolate.
i taste wood. more than in the xo. some smoke. orangepeel in the back. cinnamon. chocholat. raisins and grape. some prune.
no more than 7 out of 10 points. for me its much too sweet. but if you like it, this is for you!

C'est un excellent Rhum de Rep Dom.
Préférez le moment de la fin du repas pour l'apprécier comme il se dois.
Vous allez vous régaler.

God og dejlig sød og mild rom, men den mangler lige...

Lots of banana leaves, subtle sweetness of exotic fruits and a really high class drink!

Edit: Smelled the glass 2 days later. Still smells wonderful. Bumping this to a 9!

I love everything about it. From the nice botlle. To the sweetness balance, the afterburn, the caramel, vanille, sherry taste, the price, everything !
It was the 2th best bottle of the group of four people after 20 rums. Two of us bought a botlle. 25y for 80€. At that price it's the best rum i know. When i want to convince friends to try rum this is the bottle i use. Solid 9,5 ! Right under embassador and riise ultra.
