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.

This particular rum was a gift from my daughter, who brought it over and used to make the most wonderful Mai Tai’s. Later I tested it with some Mexican cola and it was wonderful! Smooth and easy to sip, Carmel and vanilla flavours with a bit of fruit flavours. Will look for it again and keep in the cabinet.
I try 5+3 and also Selection, but this version really good value for money. You can sit and taste the pleasant aroma and sweet taste of this rum.
This is a great rum! Neat, it has a strong start with a smooth finish. With an ice cube, it’s balanced, sweet but not too sweet and so smooth. Dark and flavorful, it could compared favorably to one of the world’s great rums, Diplomatico, but it has a flavor profile unique enough to stand on its own.
I received this rum with the tasting kit as a gift and we first started to taste the rum ingrediences from the kit. The tasting of the first sherry from the kit was terrible and I was afraid what will be the taste of the resulted rum but I was pleasantly surprised that the rum itself was very balanced between sweet, flavour and alcohol. Definitely one of the most interesting rums. This might be actually one of my favourite rums so far.
In regards to the ~16 Rums I tried so far, this one really went to the top of my list.
I'm using Rum almost 100% for making cocktails. This one does it's work well in those drinks
but also is a good smooth sipper, at least for me :)
