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.
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+
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.
Viscid sweet liqueur. Taste is full with various flavours like vanila, fruits with hints of burnt wood. It is a bit sticky, it left a film in the mouth. Aftertaste is bittersweet.
The overall sweetness and high viscosity brings this rum down.
Not worth the money.
I'm a big fan of the 5+5 so purchased a sample of the Luxus from Master of Malt it was a little pricy around the £10 mark the bottle retails at £120 so worthwhile buying a sample first.
This is a wonderful sipping rum, it's smooth and a delight to drink. You can definitely smell and taste the difference the extra 5 years (10 in total) aging in bourbon in the carribean. The further 5 years in Don Guido 20 year old finish is now much more rounded and complex, less sweet but still retaining Dos Maderas' unique character. There are additional notes of coffee and cacao carries through on top of the raisin and dried fruit its reminiscent of childhood chocolate raisins.
Would definitely drink this again will have to get myself a bottle when I get the chance!
nejdříve přijde lahodná chuť, jemná a úžasná vůně projde nosem a po polknutí zůstává pachuť, jako kdyby byl tímto rumem vyplachnut nádražní popelník. i za 300 bych ho nekoupil. natož za desetinásobek.
In comparison to other rum brands, this one is unfiltered. It has a sweetish brilliant aroma containing a lot of tones. It has a rich excellent taste and a perfect afterburn... it is not that sweet as other Dos Maderas rums and in my opinion it is worth the price.
This is the smoothest drink I have ever had, it has almost no bite whatsoever. It is sherry heavy and goes well with cigar, but the sherry aroma seems a bit too artificial to me.
Wow! Great rum. I was fortunate to taste the rum at my local liquor store. I had to buy it. Totally got my attention. First I smelled just alcolol, but I wasn‘t disappointed at all! I totally recommend this one! Allmond, Caramel and a bit of orange...
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.
Lever fint op til luxus titlen i forhold til 5+5 versionen som ellers er fin. Dejlig mild og sød rom der smager dejligt.
A very delicious glass of rum, but at that price point there’s a lot of other great and cheaper choices out there.
it's a nice ron with a port finish, smooth and tasty at all.
Le nez est dominé par du caramel, mais plutôt doux et pas écœurant. Ca sent également la pâtisserie avec une note de banane en fond, genre banofee pie. On peut aussi décerner un parfum de dattes.
L’attaque est très douce, d’abord vanillée et caramélisée, sans excès de sucre puis arrive une note mentholée.
La finale est plutôt courte et reste sur une touche vanille/caramel
C’est un rhum plutôt agréable (bien qu’il manque clairement de puissance à mon avis) mais il est malheureusement aussi trop commun et fait partis des rhums clones (zacapa, botran, etc…)
na mile daleko od 5+5, skoro by som povedal ze to nieje rovnaka destilerka. rum je velmi jemny. vyvazena sladkost na nastupe, ale sladkost pocitite aj v tele. tam uz nieje tak vyrazna, co tomuto rumu vobec neuskodilo. jemne pripominajuci rumy od dictadoru, ako vonou tak chutov (kava, kakao, karamel, vanilka). skvele vyvazena chud bez akehokolvek palenia alebo skrabania. jeden z najlepsich rumov ake som pil. toto je rum pre zvlastne prilezitosti vyzorom aj chutou. osobne by som ho zaradil medzi jemne sladsie rumy, co mne vobec nevadi :-). 9.1/10
En klar vinnare, har den nya flaskan. Len mjuk och helt fantastiska smaker.
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..
Incredibly unique sweet rum, unlike any other rum I can remember. Just a little spice with hazelnut tones. Cherry with nice lingering finish, slight tart hit. Could easily see sipping all night
A rich dark caramel colour.
A sweet and warm taste with a little alcohol flavour, although not a harsh strength.
Caramel and light vanilla with hints of citrus. A truly delightful drink, I was going to save it for occasions and good friends however it is my go to treat.
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.
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.
Dejlig blød rom, men god lang eftersmag. Skøn duft.
Very good rum but doesn't worth for the money from my point of view. I would send the money better way😊 like three different bottles of Plantation
