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+
Hold da op en god rom. Masser af smag og duft. Sød og rund smag af marzipan og jul.
Duft: sprittet karamel og nødder
Smag: sød og dejlig fyldig i munden der er en del fad. Eftersmag af nødder og chokolade. Den er god. Men ikke pengene værd. Hellere 2-3 andre gode rom
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.
I don't like rum that is heavy on the sherry and this one was. To overwhelming for me. It overpowers the other tastes. Maybe it neede breathing ? Amazing aftertaste, nice burn. Just not my type of rhum.
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 ;-)
Already pleased by the Dos Maderas 5+5, I have not been dissapointed when I have tasted the Luxus.
This Dos Maderas is sweet and really fruity ( 5 extra years in sherry barrels helps .. ). The finish is not so long but it clearly encourage you to take a new sip. I'll probably ask Santa to bring me one for Xmas :-D
en god rom men vad ska man räkna med det priset...
I love it for a sweet rum. Expensive, but a good rum. If price was lower it would have been a easy 10
a bold and intense rum with heavy tones of sherry. sherry is the dominating taste in this blend. part barbados, part guyana. raisins, chocolate and very much sherry. very sweet and creamy.
For those of us who appreciate, let's say a PLantation XO or a Ron Zacapa XO, the Dos Maderas is very out of left field with its dark fruits, dates and figues notes, but being a spanish Jerez type of wine aficionado, I appreciate the subtle similarities that the Luxus brings with those wine types, because of the aging. But I can understand someone being put off by this. All in all, one of my favorites.
Un incontournable rhum qui complètera votre collection avec ses saveurs inimitables de figue et de datte.
My most expensive rum to date. Very good aromas but does not last long in mouth. Subtle sherry, fruit and port aromas. But, again, was expecting more. For a lower price, the Dos madeiras P.X. Gives me a similar experience.
Nice colour. Nice, strong legs in the glas. You can get the Sherry-casks in your nose. Sweet, but not too sweet on your tongue: Nuts and vanilla. Unfortunately finishing much too fast. Swallowed down, there is nothing left in your palate.
Very round and warm with a distinctive taste of sherry, fruit and vanilla. Too expensive thou
Color ámbar obscuro, con cuerpo, aceitoso. Olores a vainilla, uva, floral. Su sabor es suave, fino, una combinación entre caña de azúcar y uva. Pero el precio está fuera de rango.
En meget god og sød rom. Kan klart anbefales hvis man vil bruge lidt extra.
Miam miam! 200$ Oui mais! Un rhum d'exception délicieux et addictif.
Now this is a good bottle. Great shape, weight and some cool embossing. Slightly let down by an artificial cork. I think it also came in a quite good presentation box but I thrown those away to save space.
On the nose you definitely get the sour "off" hint of sherry.
Very soft and subtle on the first taste, interesting sweetness. A crispy sugary taste.
Really well aged.
The finish lasts for a long time and is fantastic.
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
Nose: strong alcohol odor
Body: Honey, oak wood, too sweet for me
Tail: Sugar sweet, medium-lasting, warming
It better tastes than smells..
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.
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!
This is real good, one of the best I have ever tasted, abit pricy but worth it.
Very nice, smooth rum for straight sip. Beautiful dark amber colour. Smell of dates and molasses complements dried fruit, honey and vanilla taste. Smooth and elegant finish but still have quite strong sherry flavour. Better balanced than 5+5 but still requires inclination toward good sherry.
