Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Dos Maderas PX Luxus rum is produced using rums from Barbados and Guyana. The unique aging process includes an initial 10 years aging in the Carribean in oak casks. This is followed by an additional 5 years of aging in Spain in casks used to age the sherry Don Guido.
Bodegas Williams & Humbert produces the Dos Maderas family of rums, a well known Spanish winery founded in the late 1800s by Sir Alexander Williams. The region of Spain where the winery is located has a climate perfectly suited for wine and is known as Europe's wine cellar.
Wow wow wow wow ! OH my god !
Nose : Sweet with a lot of alcohol, so I thought I was gonna be disappointed...
In the mouth, oh my god ! The alcohol disappears ! So much flavour ! Very sweet, but in a good way. So round, perfectly balanced, ADDICTIVE !!!
The aftertaste doesn t last long at all...
BEST RUM EVER !!!
A bit of alcohol at the beginning but if you let it rest for a while in the glass the sticky alcohol fades and you smell sweet aromas of almond, caramel, orange, and vanilla.
In mouth you feel the smoothness of this rum. You taste almonds, vanilla, oak and some sherry. A very sweet rum. The aftertaste is a bit to short with sweetness, sherry and some spice.
The Dos Maderas Luxus is obviously a sipping rum that I enjoy neat. One of my favourites.
This is a very good rum, which is surprisingly sweet. I generally like sweet rums, and this is no exception, but the sweetness comes across a bit artificial tasting to me.
Tastes of molasses, spice, sherry, oak, vanilla, almonds, with a unique sweet additive that I can't quite place. It's definitely an excellent rum, though it falls just a bit short of the rums I've rated a 10. Still, this is a high 9 to me, and definitely worth trying if you get the chance.
Lækker rom, oser af kvalitet hele vejen igennem.
Den tager lige skridtet videre fra den meget lækre 5+5.
Lidt dyr, dog en fed rom at have i samlingen.
rum from Barbados & Guyana is aged for 10 years in the Caribbean and then 5 years in premium Spanish sherry barrels. The nose/aroma is the most amazing, deep, fruity, complex, and amazing smell of any rum I’ve ever tried, almost beyond words! Amazing mouthfeel. The taste is super deep, complex, fruity, brown sugar, medium sherry without being too sweet. Slight burn on the end. Probably the best rum I’ve ever had (as of 2019.02.14). 98+
Sugar: estimated at 37 GPL. Wonderful sweet mix of sherry, wood, caramel, chocolate and a touch of spice. Aroma matches the taste. Soft on the palate with a lingering taste and warmth. Fabulous rum!
I like sweet rums and I would put this rum in my top five along with Diplomatico Ambassador,Abeulo Centuria, El Dorado 25, and Appleton Joy. It’s not easy to find and if you feel like spending $160 USD then go for it!
Enjoyed a glass of Dos Maderas Luxus from Weinquelle liquor store. Very nice high end bottle design. Great looking graphics and label. Surprisingly light in color. Strong wood to both nose and palate. Long ending and some serious burn. Whisky lovers add 2 points, but my score is a solid 7.
This one is a very unique rum. A very unexpected yet somehow familiar flavour. It tastes like a tropical island. Coconut, vanilla bean, molasses, ripe fruits. It is an absolute explosion of sweetness and flavour that is rich,silky smooth and very easy to drink. It's not my everyday as it's very rich but still something I enjoy for something completely different at times. A very good rum that everyone should try at least once.
And opens up nicely with a (very) few drops of water.
Does have notes of a nicely aged port (my other favourite spirit).
Thus far, my 2nd favourite after the Appleton Estate Exclusive.
Tak stát tenhle rum míň, určitě do něj jdu (zatím mám jen miniaturu :-(. Je superjemný, sladký, ale ne příliš. Prostě luxusní! A nová láhev je také mnohem vydařenější.
Vůně velmi jemná, vanilková. Chuť vizkózní, olejnatá, jemná, sladká vynikající. V podstatě vůbec v ústech necítíte alkohol, jen příjemnou sladkost na patře a pak se ozve teplo ze žaludku. Jen ta cena, ups.
All the other releases to the manufacturer are a much better item than this. I’m not saying it’s a bad rum, but it’s too sweet and the average body doesn’t match the name “luxus”!
Klar, echt luxuriös und fein würzig mit tollen Aromen, aber aufgrund der süsse und des Zuckers auch nicht gerade die hohe Kunst. (Aber fein zum trinken)
Findet aber in der breiten Masse wohl viel Anklang.
Sweetrum lovers, add 4 points ;)
Hell yes she did!!! What a wonderful and super exraordinary product! The first time I tasted this rum it made me fall in love immediately! Very nice bottle filled with a beautiful color liquid which slides softly on your tongue with some great flavours and just a tiny bit of burn which feels perfect! The second one for me that receives a topscore!!
Wow, so beautiful, excellent choice, fabulous finish, great flavour, sublime. Sugar added.
