Opthimus 25 Oporto Barrels
- RumXP Award Winner. From Portugal, 25 year solera. Bottle 73 at 43 percent abv abv. Aromas of ripe butter on beautiful charred wood lead to tart berry, cinnamon baking spices, honey, black currant, black raspberry, bitter vanilla and smoke. The super-sweet entry dries out quickly by mid-palate, when the unique characteristics of the port barrel evolve -- black currant, black raspberry, blackberry -- dominates and persists in the finish.
