Question Opthimus 15/18 recommendations


First time poster here. I recently came back from a rum-tasting and it really hooked me right away!

I got to try "Opthimus 15" which I thought was fantastic, however it is hard to come by here and for me a somewhat expensive to start out with.

Is there any rum that you would recommend that is similar to Opthimus 15/18 and possibly at a lower price-range?

I am grateful for any help and suggestions!

I find that all Oliver & Oliver blended rums taste alike so you could pick anything from Cubaney to Atlantico and get a similar experience. Mind you I have not tried Opthimus but this is my experience with the products I have tasted from them. I find them quite bland and unexciting to be honest.
