Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Dos Maderas PX 5 + 5 rum is made from a combination of rums from Barbados and Guyana. It is unique becuase of its triple ageding process where for 5 initial years the rum is aged in the Carribean in oak casks. Next PX 5 + 5 is aged in Spain for 5 years in sherry casks, and lastly for 2 more years in even older sherry casks.
The Dos Maderas family of rums are produced by Bodegas Williams & Humbert, which is a well known Spanish winery founded by Sir Alexander Williams in the late 1800s. The region of Spain where the winery is located has a climate perfectly suited for wine and is known as Europe's wine cellar.
A pale brown color with light shades of bright red, smell - first strong caramel, but the comes the fine citrus, taste long sweet caramel and at the end boxing punch in the palate. Definitely female dominating Rum - sipping it you got sweet though about life continuation with wild acting in the background.
Very good.... sweet ,smooth .. fruity and little bit spicy... I'll put it in my top 3...with diplomatico reserva exclusiva at the top.
I see my review is higher than the others, but this is one of the smoothest rums I have tasted. Some molasses and sweetness, but not as sweet as most of my favorites. Very balanced. Tasted it with 2 others including Zacapa which is one of my favorites and my rating on this was higher.
Aroma with notes of vanilla, red fruits, wine, melasses and nuts. In taste sweet but it has all in all more of a cognac than a rum. Nevertheless it's still great.
Nice rum for the price
Great sweet nose and sweet taste
I wont buy again
Strong rum with nice taste. Good balance between sweet and bitter.
A well balanced tipple with the sweet syrupy PX sherry up front and a slightly smoky demerara rum finish.
You can see the quality in this rum, maybe the taste just doesn't suit me that well.
Not the rum, the fact that a friend I was visiting who knew if like fine rums had a bottle waiting. Quite dark in color, fairly sweet, reminiscent of zacapa. I have not seen this locally so happy I was able to have a taste. Or the whole 750.
has a strong aroma but the it does taste very good
This is another rasin forward rum. If you are a fan of zafra, old monk and those styles of rum you’ll enjoy dos Madeira 5x5. May be the better smoother if the bunch. If you are looking for “traditional” rum taste this won’t be for you or me.
Toto je naozaj nieco, co splna moje kriteria. Koniec je trosku stiplavejsi, ale zaroven ovocny, ceresnovy.
belle découverte avec ce nectar
café chocolat et vanille et bien d'autres saveurs dans cette bouteille..
belle épaisseur en bouche
very similar to the Luxus. Not as deep & complex, but very similar sherry characteristics. This was $13/pour versus $40/pour for Luxus, and close. 88+
Rum určite nie je tuctový. Jeho chuť je výrazne drevitá (predpokladám po dubových sudoch). Osobne mi to ale dosť vadí. (možno aj to je dôvod, prečo nemám rád whisky).
V úvode cítiť jemnú a príjemnú sladkosť (vanilka, med, hrozienka) a v závere má pomerne dosť intenzívny alkoholový dozvuk. Farba je krásne tmavá jantárová a v pohári sa doslova trbliece.
Mám radšej sladšie rumy, pri väčších dúškoch pripomínal skoro whisky. to je aj dôvod prečo si ho už asi nekúpim. Je to ale o tom čo komu chutí. Na celovečerné pitie so švagrom by mal byť OK, ale u manželky s ním neuspejete :)
Ein sehr leichter Rum aber dennoch mit einer gewissen Eleganz. Im Mund ostber schnell weg aber man bekommt dennoch einige Noten von Holz, diverse Bitternoten und Melasse typische Geschmacksnoten.
Vliv sherry jasnej. Po polknutí cítim silnou dřevitost, ty sudy....zajímavý, hodně originální rum.
Nice nosing with notes of caramel, burnt sugar and molasses. But the palate could not develop positively from that point. Having taken the first sip, the flavor notes revealed during the nosing turn off immediately only to give way to an extreme level of sweetness. This keeps on and the finish is also relatively short, leaving only the sweet (not fruity) flavor of sugar. So in my view somewhat disappointing as the nosing indicates that the molasses used have clearly some quality. The level of sweetness makes this rum suspicious for added sugar.
Ultra smooth and sweet, almost to the point it is unbalanced (needs more character). I still thoroughly enjoyed it
I absolutely love this sipper, it’s smooth, no burn, and has hints of raisin, fig and vanilla. I love Demerara and Barbados, so I would compare this to El Dorado 12 or Plantation 20, which in case you didn’t know it are the 2 best sippers for the price, period. I don’t give a care if some folks say these are too sweet, it’s fine with me and still doesn’t have much sugar per ounce, maybe 1 gram or less. I enjoy a sweet sipper and this one is now in my top 5, Diplomatico Reserva being another. I also appreciate rums such as Foursquare Zinfandel, so I don’t just love sweet ones.
Very surprised by this Rum. Definitely up there as one of my current favorites.
Did buy a bottle to have at my wedding together with some scotchs. Did far exceed my expectations. Bought it for 30 euros so did not expect much. Really sweet (in a good way) and smooth rum. There is some aftertaste of alcohol to it, which I am still not sure I like or dislike. For the price it was a steal and I will try other from this brand for sure.
Intense cask taste. At start some alcohol vapors prevents full smell experience.
After 10-15 mins more aromas comes noticeable. All present vanilla as dominant (beside caks taste). Not to sweet. This is an interesting Rum, lots of flavors.
