Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
You can not go wrong buying this rum. It's really nice in sweetness and has some power to it. Oliver & Oliver has always been a good choice for me. I would definitely recommend to try this rum a lot of times. :-)
Has a perfectly balanced taste and aroma, with some caramel and hiding cocoa. Fruityness in the nose after. Really smooth, simply great!
Nice sweet taste, Nice theatre for those big money....delicious rum.a year later I was Born.thank you dominica.
The color alone makes my heart beat.. Then the knowledge that oliver and oliver was there.. The hopes are high.. The scent is suddle.. Hints of loads of flaveours.. And the taste.. What a taste.. Dark, full of sugar but not sweet.. And you can feel the tastes fading for a full minute..
In general are almost all Oliver & Oliver rum good stuff. This is a very enjoyable rum to drink, it has a lot of sweetness, and a soft power.
Nose : I find vanilla, oak, a little spices, and just delicious sweetness
Taste : I find vanilla, oak, molasse, spices and power. The aftertaste is sweet with a soft power and few seconds after the oak and molasses comes along, nice!!
A friend on a business trip in eastern Europe brought me a bottle of this about 3 years ago. I enjoyed it so much I kept the empty bottle.... didn't realize until I looked here that it is actually a Dominican Rum so that explains my affinity to the taste. All solera rums are not great, but this one is.
So far the best rum I've tasted. The taste was greatly balanced.
Tipical oliver & oliver rum, similar to the quorhum 30.
First, you have to let it breath in the glass for 10/15 minutes.
Then, some alcool remains to the nose, vanilla, oak and some sweetnes.
On the palate, the rum is sweet but not overpowering, with flavours of almonds, oak, vanilla, dried fruits and sugar cane.
The end is long and sweet, with some oak in ti.
For me, this rum is a 9+
Oliver&oliver never dissapoints. Sweet but not too much:)
A fantastic rum, woody and slightly spicy on the nose, full bodied but pleasant on the palate with hints of fruit. For me, born in 1985 (+ 1 point for this), the perfect gift to recive. Excellent value for money
Neutral aroma with cinnamon touch. Average sweetness with alcohol bitterness with cinnamon taste in the end.
Ein schönes aber etwas stumpfes Mahagoni im Glas.
In der Nase kommen zuerst die ganz tiefen holzigen Töne an, gefolgt von delikater Schokolade und karamellisierten tropischen Früchten. Ganz dezent im Hintergrund auch erdige Noten von Moos und Harz.
Im Gaumen sehr sanft, Karamell, Schokolade, Banane, Vanille, Holz …….. und vieles mehr. Sehr gut ausbalanciert und komplex, süss aber nicht so süss wie andere Olivers.
Im Abgang sehr voluminös nach Schokolade, später gesellen sich noch Holz und Karamell dazu.
Ein leckerer Solera der ein wenig vom üblichen Oliver Profil abweicht. Für Einsteiger und Liebhaber von süssen Rum zu empfehlen. Braucht eine lange offene Zeit zum atmen.
A beautiful but slightly dull mahogany in a glass.
In the nose, the very deep woody tones arrive first, followed by delicate chocolate and caramelised tropical fruits. Quite discreetly in the background also earthy notes of moss and resin.
On the palate very soft, caramel, chocolate, banana, vanilla, wood......... and much more. Very well balanced and complex, sweet but not as sweet as other Olivers.
A very voluminous chocolate finish, later joined by wood and caramel.
A delicious Solera that deviates a little from the usual Oliver profile. Recommended for beginners and lovers of sweet rum. Takes a long open time to breathe.
Super lækker rom, minder meget om sin yngre bror 1990. En af de bedre
Tohle je opravdu lahudka. Cela rada Exquisito se moc povedla
Tasty and complex but too woody and leathery when compared to the rest of the premium O&O rums.
Süss,süss und nochmal süss!!
Sehr feine Noten!!
Ein muss!! Und Zwei müssen!!
Colour is nice dark.
Smell is soft and good.
Taste is very good.
Such a delite.... sweet good complex rum... on og my absolut favorites
Probabil un rom bun, pentru alții. Din cauza gustului prea puternic de marțipan nu pot aprecia acest rom. Am dat 7 doar pentru ca am înțeles ca e un rom bun..
Beautiful dark color, a great oak taste and a great balance between sweetness and a good burn.
Ano je to on. Každý na baru se mě vždy ptal : který je ten nejlepší pro Tebe ? A já jim vždy říkal: Martin Vambera z Rumaka mi dal ochutnat 1985 a já si ho hned vzal. Je to velmi skvělý rum plný a ucelený. Nasládlá chuť, plná harmonií karibského podnebí. Oříšky, květinky, čokoláda a hlavně láska :-)
Všem doporučuji !!
Tried the Exquisito 1985 with very high expectations and the rum is very good in isolation, but unfortunately a long way from a perfect ten. Color is deep dark, smell test reveals a bouquet of nice aged dark rum aromas, but the taste test reveals this is way too sweet and there's still a surprisingly strong afterburn. Great rum from Oliver & Oliver, but struggles to earn anything higher than an eight.
I found the price range for this bottle is huge. At the lower prices, it's real good value. Very easy to drink
