This rum is a great find. Loving already it’s brother PX 5+5, I tried this rum and it didn’t dissapoint.
A surprising rum made in a unique manner.
Very smooth with a Demerara sugar and molasses aftertaste tempered with a slight volatile spirit completion.
The first notes don't seem to taste like rum and as the melody continues, there are a lot of mellow things going on. After the first sip, this rum levels out and becomes very nice. I'd buy it again.
Smooth complex. just amazing 5 years in bourbon barrels and the 3 years in chery casks. Yes
I really like this rum but there are so many other choices that are finer (more aged) taste; Foursqaure/RL Seale come to mind.
2 Maderas 5+3 is a good surprise because you get a sippable rum at an affordable price (depending where you buy I guess). This rum is not as dark coloured as other aged rums, but despite its lighter look it gets assertive in the mouth and you can feel oaky notes and a bitter sweetness that amounts to an enjoyable experience. It's definitely a more dry than sweet rum and that fits my preferences at the moment. This is a rum you can drink neat without fear, no question.
To my dissapointment I found the more expensive Px 5+5 unbearable due to its overwhelming sweetness and sherry-caramel flavour... so much that I had no other use for it than passing it along to a friend, who by the way enjoyed it a lot, so in the end sometimes it's really a matter of taste! But for me, there's no doubt, stick to the 5+3 and save the money!
Sehr würziger Rum, beim Geschmack sind Sherrynoten, Holz, Vanille und Karamell zu spüren. Der Rum kommt in einer sehr schöne Flasche daher. Im grossen und ganzen schmeckt er mir sehr gut und auch viel besser als sein älterer Bruder der Dos Maderas 5+5.
Je to sladký rum. Výborný v kombinaci se slanou čokoládou.
Guyana and Barbados origin, finished in aged Sherry oak casks. Satisfying as an sipping rum enjoyed straight up.
Lækker næse, god smag, sød og behagelig, og en god eftersmag.
Hij is zacht doch stevig. Ontzettend lekker bij een dessert.
Smell is wonderful. Very smooth. I was hoping for more flavor but very good rum
The name of this rum is indicative of it's nature "Dos Maderas" translates as "two woods" meaning the oak barrels in which it is aged for 5 years and the sherry casks in which it is finished for an additional 3 years. Those three years give it a distinct flavor that is noticeably sherry while easing the oak tones. This results in a fairly nice rum. However this is best suited for mixing. The sherry flavor won't overwhelm the adult beverage of your choice but will give it a little bit of a twist in flavor due to the sherry finish. Sipping it reveals a sweetness to it that isn't too strong. There is vanilla and toffee flavors underneath but the sherry tones come forward rather quickly before the burn takes over. However the burn fades quickly leading back to the sherry. It's almost a mixed drink in of itself if you happen to like drinking sherry as well as cooking with it. In my honest opinion I feel this is better suited for mixed drinks. Especially anything with grenadine in it. The grenadine and sherry flavors play well together. Also this is quite good in coke zero as well. It's unique enough to be recommendable to add to your liquor cabinet for those times you desire something a little different but not weird. I think more bars, especially tropical-themed bars, should have this as a mandatory part of their selection. I know I would.
If you try to drink it straight once in your glass, you will have nothing more that the alcohol taste but if you give it fresh air, this Dos Maderas 5+3 will show you some nice fruity aromas most probably coming from the extra 3 years in sherry casks. Nice but maybe al ittle bit too young.
First I don't like if they produce bottle for >20€ with only 37,5 % alc. This simply reminds me to much for much cheaper things. Second the concept of this bottle is nice, but I still prefer Demarara Rum, which got a Sherry Finish.
Je suis un peu déçu par rapport au 5+5 que j ai classé 10. On goûte le chêne et les noix. Finale moins longue et mon complexe que le 5+5. Il n 'est pas mauvais mais on est mieux de viser le 5+5.
I found this rum all in all OK. Easy to drink and enjoy. If in doubt, give it a try.
Incuriosisce il fatto che venga fatto stagionare gli ultimi 3 anni (degli 8 totali) in Spagna. Sapore morbido, ma tendente al secco.
Quite good indeed. But if you really like rum taste it might dissapoint you because it taste more like a good whiskey. That's good por bad up to you!
This rum isn’t for everyone, but it has a lot to recommend it. Finishing in sherry casks adds delicious layers of dried fruit on top of the smoke and leather underneath.
RON SUAVE CON SABOR A JEREZ. DIFERENTE A LOS RONES TRADICIONALES DEL CARIBE
As a collector the bottle was cool. It's not too bad in coke, but by itself it has a heavier burn. I'd still by it to mix with cola.
40% ABV. No nose. Seriously… smells like nothing. If I swirl and inhale vigorously, I get the faintest hint of caramel. Wouldn't say sherry if I didn't already know it was there, but it's identifiable in the "after-smell," if that makes any sense (note: I think this means on the back end or finish of the nose). Huh. Palate is agreeable. Still a little light in flavor, which I would characterize as both deep and hollow. There's wood, for sure. Reminds me a tad of MGXO, perhaps, or ST1796? But a little "prickly" like a dry sherry. Strange. As usual, it gets better over time, but still smells like nothing.
When considering the Dos Maderas lineup, I decided to try this one first, and then if I liked it, I'd also try the 5+5. But this one was such a big disappointment, I wish I had just tasted the 5+5 instead. Now, I'm not interested in anything below Luxus (which I've heard is lovely). Just nothing to get excited about here.
Boring and not recommendable.
