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.
Now this is some good stuff
Nose: strong alcohol odor
Body: Honey, oak wood, too sweet for me
Tail: Sugar sweet, medium-lasting, warming
It better tastes than smells..
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.
It's been one of my birthday presents. Quite smooth, rich and complex taste provided by the ageing process in two different type of cask. There's an interesting hint of caramel at the beginning, with some hint of vanilla and a complex bouquet provided by the ageing in Jerez in the Don Guido casks. Some spice and wood notes, some sherry hint. A very well balanced and very interesting bouquet of flavors.
I don't even know where to begin. Such a complexity...at first I was not that impressed but u just wait a while and things start to change...not my number one rum to go to, but worth the experience!:) rich taste, nice colour and very essentials smell!
Got myself a miniature bottle, which is in the same price range as my favourite full sized bottles. Not only the best rum, but the best drink I have ever tasted. A truly special experience rated 9/10 only because of the ridiculous price for a 5cl bottle.
I really like the Dos Maderos PX aging of their 5 & 5, and
D been awaiting my first bottle of Luxus. This is really good nectar very darl, very smooth slightly sweet with great lingering notes. Not quite enough depth to reach 10 status but superior rum in anyone’s book.
Rigtig godt duft af frugt og krydderi, måske lidt mandel. En smule varme i smagen med rigtig god balance mellem duft og smag. Mandler og kirsebær i smagen. Eftersmagen er virkelig fantastisk og bliver hængende sindssygt længe. En meget dyb og kompleks rom. Man kan godt smage, at det virkelig er kvalitet. Forstår simpelthen ikke karaktererne på 3 og 4. Koster omkring 1000 kroner, men jeg vil meget gerne have den. Denne Dos Maderas er en positiv overraskelse, fordi jeg er ikke er fan af deres andre produkter. Dette er 9 med pil op. Kan måske ryge op på 10 (23. December 2019 i MacY)
