Dos Maderas PX 5+5 rum

Dos Maderas PX 5+5

Barbados | Aged

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.

I do not,so i can only give it a low ranking. It's an interesting,complex rum with too much Sherry in my opinion.

It was pretty good stuff, let's hope they narrow a flavor goal down.

Great color and smell, but it's way too sweet for my liking. Almost wine-like. And I'm not a wine guy. It's drinkable though, so I can't give it less than a 5. I tend to prefer a spicier blend without as much sweetness.

Very sweet, little bit sharp. Raisins in taste. Little bit chemical.

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.

A strong gold-brown colour in the glass. The aroma is sweet, some sherry, also light medical. The taste is fruity, a little bit sweet but also slightly medical and bitter. The finish is medium long.

Nez épicé, âpreté de la poire en bouche, assez long
Arôme de muscadou et miel mille fleurs.

I am expected more from this rum. Very strong oak finish.

Good to start the collection. Not a top rhum. Best to mix with cola.

First smell is nice- fruity and sweet.
First taste is nice- fruity and sweet

I'm going to tell you a story about my daughter at a music festival (Jazzfest in New Orleans). She was about 12 and there was a vendor that had deep fried Twinkies. She got one and took a bite and proclaimed that she loved it and it was great! She took another bite and said this is disgusting, I can't stand it! She then threw it in the trash without hesitation.

While not to THAT extreme, this is very sweet. Overpoweringly sweet and it reminded me of that deep fried Twinkie.
