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 es de lo mejor q he probado en nariz es espectacular ,avellanas,datiles,jerez,es pesado un poco aceitoso ,es suave pero sabes q estas tomando ron añejo, la madera sale a relucir,equilibrado fenomenal
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.
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 !!!
Een elegante rum bestaande uit een mix van zoete Barbados rum en volledig aromatische rum uit Guyana, met rijping in Spanje in Don Guido sherry vaten. Zeer intens en vol van smaak.
Echte fantastische rum.
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.
Hold da op en god rom. Masser af smag og duft. Sød og rund smag af marzipan og jul.
This rum was one of my tasting objective at the Belgium Rum Fest at Spa. I tasted all the rest of the familly and want to taste this one. And I was not disappointed. Sherry flavor with grapes and figs. Complex, smooth with long finish. The double maturation gives a round and well balanced rum. You are moving into an other world next the rum ;-)
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!
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+
Dispendieux est le seul bémol qu'on puisse trouver car il est vraiment très trè très bon, explosion de saveurs incroyable dans la bouche tout en étant d'une douceur exemplaire! Si vous voulez vous payez une bouteille à $200 ce sera certainement un très bon achat! La bouteille de 700ml se vide très vite, difficille de ne pas s'en verser un autre et un autre!
hold da op jeg er imponeret over fylde og sødme og en meget lang eftersmag. SÅ meget bedre end px 5+5. Dyr men virkelig en lækker rom
This is real good, one of the best I have ever tasted, abit pricy but worth it.
Aroma is nice, big and sweet. Taste is not so swet like you could expect from aroma - almost same like 5+5. But the body is more matured, bigger, with more layers and long aftertaste. This is definitely one of my top ...
Jednoznačně nejlepší rum, který jsem kdy pil. Měl jsem možnost ochutnat i cherry, po kterém rum dozrává v sudech a je to opravdu gurmánsky zážitek.
Got this one for christmas and after about 30-40 rums I tasted in my careera, this one might be the best "sweet" I ever had and one of best overall.
Just when I thought the normal dos maderas was amazing out comes luxus which is basically a more polished much more smoother version of their rum with wine aftertaste. Get it, get it now.
Une approche délicate avec des saveurs qui se termine sur une longue finale, vraiment bon. un luxe...à se payer pour se gâter
Belle complexité et très raffiné, sur le sirop d'érable, orange, tabac, bonbon et le caramel. Très belle robe assez foncé et facile a boire.
Un incontournable rhum qui complètera votre collection avec ses saveurs inimitables de figue et de datte.
I find this rum difficult to find in the US, but was lucky enough to snag a bottle when I went to Spain. I patiently waited until I was home to taste it, and wow was I happy with it!
The bottle is simple yet beautiful, and the color is just perfect. It's appetizing from the moment you look at it, and the taste that follows is near perfection!
I gave it a weighted score of 9.05, which I rounded down to 9 for rumratings.com. My scoring system (with weights) is as follows:
-Packaging (10%): 9
-Color (20%): 10
-Nose (20%): 7
-Palette (25%): 9.5
-Smoothness (25%): 9.5
The nose wasn't as rich as I hoped, and to me didn't match the color or taste of the rum. I expected a to pick up on a strong caramel scent, but that wasn't the case. The taste however was just amazing, and easily places this rum on my favorites list.
Dejlig blød rom, men god lang eftersmag. Skøn duft.
Great rum from start to the extremely long and delisous finish. Great nose, sweet but not to sweet and you will notice the sherry and wood. A bit pricey but hey it's a fantastic rum. Get u sum uh dat..
A lot of sherry and simular to. A.H Riise very rare ultra, but this is a little bit better with even more complex and longer aftertaste.
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.
