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.

My the first from cherry cask. Not for me, little more leather, smoked wood and oil in taste and with negative typical "medical/chemical" aroma -> means max 5 rating ... It is not sweet at all.

Sweetness -> 3/10
Strength -> 6.5/10

This taste nothing like rum to me. I'm not a wine fan and this tastes like a Merlot to me.
Dont get me wrong; I like variance in my rums but this one is just not one for my tastebud.
I had to reach for my 1919 just to get that taste out of my mouth.

Nichts für den puren Genuss. Als Longdrink zu gebrauchen.

Horrendous as a sipping rum (for me at least). Way way too sweet. There are interesting flavors in there but the sugar drowns it out for me.

Oft wird dieser Rum für Einsteiger empfohlen. Leider ist er mir trotz seiner Süße zu trocken, "scharf" und würzig.

I am getting ever more cautious with over sherry-ing rums. I recently had the Valdespino and the Abuela Oloroso 15 and found them near impossible to drink because they were too sherry-ed, too sweet and too unbalanced. This is verging on that, but the notes of raisins that comes from the PX does have a certain appeal. If in the mood, it will go down well, but how often will that mood come about? It is a better rum than the 5+3, even if the 5+3 is less sherry-ed, but ultimately it fails the very simple test - would I buy it again? I doubt it.

EDIT - after the initial interest from the raisiny notes from the PX, I found this near impossible to drink. I had an interesting time experimenting with what rum to mix it with to make it palatable. A rum that I could not find myself buying ever again. A shame as it is a well made rum, just in a style that I hate, albeit that appeals to many others.

Even after 20 minutes in the glass, it still burns going down, i have tasted other rums that have afteraged i portcask, but this one has a very funky taste, i dont like it at all.

If you enjoy rum that tastes like spoiled fruit then thiis baby is for you
Alternatively if you mix your rum and need something very sweet and fruity it might improve the situation
Generally speaking - go elsewhere

A mouth full of raisins! That's it.

I can't believe this one got any 10 ratings at all. The only thing this rum is good for is baking. It's not a sipper and cuts through a glass of Coke like a raisin flavored chainsaw.

This rum proves that too much of a good thing can be bad...and its a $45 lesson.

Not my type of rum. Rough on mouth. Not sweet at all.
