Хороший, но по качествам уступает своему брату '5+5'

As it is labeled, sherry flavors come on early and strongly but the flavor is not quite balanced. It comes across as a mineral taste that was not quite desirable, especially at the end. The price and value of the rum did not match.

Bottle: Attractive looking bottle on the shelf, stands out.
Color: Light yellow brown.
Bottle Smell: More rum than sherry.
Glass: Changes, more sherry than rum.
Taste: Slightly sweet with an immediate overtone of sherry, the rum slowly comes through but there is a taste that follows the entire experience that is not entirely pleasant. Finishes well in the throat as the mineral taste dissipates.

I prefer the 5+5 to this rum and while this may seem obvious, I would not purchase the 5+3 again. The sherry flavor is too strong and the rum too distant.

On the nose you pick up a few of the similar sherry notes found in the bigger brother, but the scent is a little raw in comparison. On the other hand, it's easy to pick up the original barbados/guyana rum blend that makes up the base of this rum. These slightly powerfull mineral rumnotes fade away in the 5+5. The palate is delightfull and has a pureness about it. Slightly sweet and fresh molasse notes, with a hint of raisin and a short, somewhat raw finish (not harsh). All in all a good rum. For a few extra dollars though, you get the bigger brother 5+5, and in my opinion a big bump in lovely complex, sweet flavours.

Oh ja. Bei Weihnachtseinkäufen habe ich diesen Rum gefunden. Er soll laut Verpackung zuerst 5 Jahre im Whiskyfass und dann nochmals drei Jahre im Sherryfass aufbewahrt. Mild undsein Geld wert.

.....but my taste obviously differs from others who have rated it so much higher. I think that the sherry notes are too strong and obvious.

Lækker næse, god smag, sød og behagelig, og en god eftersmag.

Very smooth with a Demerara sugar and molasses aftertaste tempered with a slight volatile spirit completion.

A surprising rum made in a unique manner.

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.
