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...
Sight oak flavoring when sipped. Mixed nondescript. Stronger than the 5 + 5. Latter was more pleasant.
Aged rum with a two-stage ripening process. First, he rests for 5 years in American oak barrels in the Caribbean. Later, it is sent to the Williams & Humbert vineyard in Jerez (Andalusia - Spain), where it undergoes the final stage of aging, which lasts for three years in barrels that were previously used for aging honored with the international sherry "Dos Cortados". Sweet aroma - vanilla, toffee, chocolate-covered cherries, raspberry. In the mouth - figs, a lot of wood tannins, even too much because it gets tart, bitter tea, a hint of pepper. The finish is pleasant - the astringency is still there, but it is skin and tea with sugar. At the end of the note salty licorice salmiakki surprises.
Mucho vino, toque Caribe. Un poco alcohólico al final
Tento rum ma skôr sklamal a medzi ním a starším PX5+5 je obrovský rozdiel. Tento je o čosi suchšie,no skôr fádny,ničím neprekvapil a preto každému odporúčam si doplatiť pár EUR a kúpiť jeho staršieho brata.
Nothing wrong but not enough right. Light flavor and burn. Almost no nose. Price point is high for what you get.
Хороший, но по качествам уступает своему брату '5+5'
Mi aspettavo di più da questo rum, leggendo recensioni, anche se il gusto è molto soggettivo, lo pensavo migliore... all’ olfatto è piacevole, ma il gusto lo trovo piatto, eccessivo tenore di alcol che non riesce a farmelo apprezzare appieno!
Tastes a bit worn out. But also could be the bottle. I wouldn’t remember the taste for long, it’s too weak. Light
A good blend of the 5 and 3 to make something that taste about 8.
Nie zlé, skôr sa to hodí na celovečerné pitie v skupine ako na mňamku na večer.
Celkom chutný, zázrak sa nekonal, hlavne v tejto cenovej relácii.
Ocakaval som lepsiu chut. Chuti dost po vanilke. Oproti 5+5 je to sklamanie.
Svetla farba uz vopred napovedala, ze rum nebude mat vyraznu chut. Vona jemna, citit sudy od sherry PX, v ktorych rum zrel 3 roky. Chut suchsia, alkohol sice nepreraza nejak extremne vyrazne, ale rum nema telo a nieje nicim zaujimavy. Dochut v ustach neostava ziadna. Par rokov v sude by mu este prospelo... Nic vynimocne medzi premiovymi rumami.
Not a sweet rum. I prefer the 5+5 better. This one has less flavor in it. For this price there are better ones available.
I really like this rum but there are so many other choices that are finer (more aged) taste; Foursqaure/RL Seale come to mind.
Je suis un grand admirateur des Dos Maderas, mais avec seulement 2 ans de moins d'élevage que le 5+5. il y a un monde de différence. Ce rhum est beaucoup plus claire, avec un alcool très présent qui réchauffe et il est beaucoup moins rond. On retrouve un peu arome de caramel et il a un coté fumé. Je me serais attendu à beaucoup plus de cette maison. Aucune complexité, un rhum avec peu d'intérêt.
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.
Purchased a sample from Master of Malt for about £5.
Much fresher and more oaky than the others in the Dos Maderas range. There's definitely grassy notes coming through I would much rather be drinking the 5+5 or Luxus 10+5 to be fair. But this would work well in juice based cocktails.
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.
Smell is wonderful. Very smooth. I was hoping for more flavor but very good rum
This rum is a great find. Loving already it’s brother PX 5+5, I tried this rum and it didn’t dissapoint.
I really like 5+5, it is one of my top choices, 5+3 is quite interesting and I recommend it to all, price is cool, taste is interesting - I advise to have couple of shots, first time we had it we were like - ooh the smell is so so nice, but the taste was rough and dry far from 5+5, the next day I made a small tasting for friends, while trying also El Dorado 8YO, and some "high class" rums, and suddenly the taste "jumped" to the good spectrum... we were surprised, maybe it has something to do with going through young El Dorado which is dryer and more rough, so the final verdict is - it is worth trying and I will buy it some other time :-)
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.
