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.

A bit dry, with strong alcohol scent. It opens up in a bit sweet vanila and oak

5 years in oak casks + 3 years in spain in sherry Dos Cortados casks in solera system. Interesting method of aging already used by different company but the double or triple aging is the "marque de fabrique" of Dos Maderas. Sweet notes of dried fruits (nuts) and toasted aroma in the mouth. Sweet but not very long aftertaste. Need more maturity. Waiting to taste big brother...

Farba nie veľmi pekná - skôr žltá. Vôňa vanilka, dub. Chuť suchá - ovocie, výrazný dubový sud. Odporúčam si priplatiť za 5+5. Tie 2 roky v sude po Sherry PX urobili veľa.

Jediný z dosud vyráběných Dos Maderas, který je sušší, chutí mi připadá až do whiskey.

I am not a big fan of cask-flavouring as too often you end up with the collatoral damage of two styles clashing together, dosed with some sugar to ease the pain. But to be honest, this one is not too bad. The rum is light (I would have expected more body in 8 yo Guyana/Barbados rum) and so is the sherry, so the two styles do get a chance of mingling together.

Fruity (orange mostly) with a hint of charred oak and a little vanilla on the nose, all very light. More spice and nuts on the palate with a hint of sherry (brandy). A little mocha bitter in the end and (thank you, thank you) not that much sugar added. Ok, not really dry but close enough to keep all the fresh and fruity notes alive.

Nice and light sipper for a change of flavours but at its pricepoint underperforming; I can buy a Mount Gay XO (with some change left) or a Doorly's 12yo and there is no way this comes even remotely close.

Vůně jemně vanilková. Chuť spíž suchá, lehce štiplavá. Barva velmi připomíná moč :-)

Oaky smell with a hint of sherry sweetness. Only light alcoholic smell.
Light body, with a taste similar to the smell, wooden and dominated by the oak casc. Slightly lightens up at the end with a hint of sherry.
Feels slightly dry, no long aftertaste but also little alcoholic burn.

Loose little rum. It may lack a little body, but it is compensated by the harmony of flavors. Definitely a sipping rum.
