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.
Smooth, hint of sweet, nice subtle aroma, straight or with a splash of cola
I like this rum, for me it is better than diplomatico 12 or pyrat xo rum.
Is not horrible as others describe it, is not great either but is drinkable, very sweet for my taste, lots of added sugars here in my opinion. Overall is a good rum I just think that there is better options out there for the price.
Dos Maderas PX 5+5, excelent rum. Drank the rum after a tasting
Tenhle rum mě opravdu bavil. Určitě to bude tím zráním v sudech po sherry, ale při pití jsou krásně v chuti cítit višně v čokoládě. Ne zas moc aby to nepřebilo vlastní chuť rumu.
The smell captures your attention. It smells sweet, but delivers a bold flavor. The finish is smooth with only a slight burn. Great on the rocks.
Vůně po zralých višních a je přijatelně sladký. Pije se velice dobře a má koňakový jemný závěr. Určitě doporučují i pro dámskou společnost.
those extra years aged in the sherry casks really bring ut some great soft flavors.
It was pretty good stuff, let's hope they narrow a flavor goal down.
sladký, jemný, voňavý rum, ale ničím mě nezaujal...
Sweet nose with just a slight burn. A bit narrow on the pallet as the sweetness dominates, smooth after a slight burn, Very nice as a sipper just not a lot of depth. As a mixer, it shines across the board; cola, citrus, ginger ale and more, it is all good. Haven't used it as a blender yet but can imagine adding a twist to both the traditional and tiki drinks.
There is something to be said about how much you read into what the rums label has to offer you. In the case of this rum it helps flush out a full character of flavor yet it still to me is not a run I would ever use for mixing has such a unique flavor I would consider this to be a sipping rum.
Nose: sweet fruity sirup
Pallet: sweet Porto wine. Absolutely no alc burn.
Complexity: great complexity which just keeps getting better!
I give my best recommendations!
Rum má tmavou barvu a neobvyklou sladkou chuť s náznakem ovoce.
More taste than most in the price range and better sweetness.
Nice everyday rum.
A 6.5 on my scale. A nice flavor. A little oak. A little molasses. Interesting aging process. Both Caribbean and Spain. Straight a little better than mixed
Pour débuter dans le monde du rhum. Gourmand, pas trop de watts. Belle palette de saveurs. Je recommande!
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.
