Tasty, but not quite great
sherry flavor clearly dominates this rum, so in case you like Sherry this might be interesting. However also a clear alcoholic burn.
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.
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...
Put this in a nosing glass, and got some nice banana and toffee along with the vanilla and oak. The sip was not so complex, but smooth and. Ice.
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.
