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.
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.
Once again I approach this as one who is no expert but knows what he likes and he likes this one. Sipping it straight reveals a sweetness along with a bit of a burn that fades to a nice warmth. Definitely a complex rum. More complex than I can decipher. However it is clear I can...and do...enjoy it in a Coke Zero as well with some ice. Some would say not to waste it on mixed drinks but if you're going to have a great mixed drink use a great rum.
A great scent, well balanced taste but a little too much Sherry taste for me to make it a real favorite.
De Dos Maderas Anejo 5YO + 5YO wordt geproduceerd door een fabrikant die oorspronkelijk bekend stond om een bijzonder exclusieve sherry. De firma Williams & Humbert toont nu met een rum dat zoiets bijzonders ook mogelijk is in het geval van rum. En dat hoge kwaliteit en ervaring in de produktie van gedistilleerde dranken een belangrijke rol spelen.
Een heldere gouden kleur en de kleine bolvormige fles zorgen er al voor dat deze rum visueel aantrekkelijk is. Verder worden er aromas en smaken waargenomen van fruit, zoetigheid en vanille. Heerlijk exotisch, zacht en mild.
One of my favorites. It really taste and smell, like raisins. It´s sweet and delicious. Quite different from other rums.
Nicely sweet with a fair amount of sherry scent/taste, oak, and a touch of spice. A bit heavy on the sherry, but good.
sweet, fruity, tastes and smells more like cognac, very good choice if you want to give it as a gift somebody who likes cognacs, but you prefer rums! :)
Malgré son prix grandement inférieur, ce rhum tient tête au meilleur produit d'Appleton et autres rhumerie industrielle.
Silnejsi, ostrejsi s orechovou chuti a pomerne trpky na konci
Yees, this rum is 5 years in carribean and 5 years in Spain, i like it:-) this is one of my favorite rums, nice taste, nice colour.
This a very good stuff, open it one day before you will drink this bottle of run and you will get the best taste of it without blend (remove the seal and let it rest capped). Needs to breathe, that's all.
Attaque douce, puis présence de l'alcool assez puissante et une longue finale.qui valorise le double élevage. Une vraie sensation de liqueur avec des arômes de pruneaux. Très étonnant. Un régal.
I like this alot, real good taste, I plan on getting the Luxus version. But this is real good.
+ gentle taste, just so sweet, for this ager rum balanced taste, surprice for me at this price category
- flavor, ordinary bottle
One of my favs - strong, but still smooth, complete and full.
Putting your rum into bourbon casks first, then into casks of two different kinds of sherry, seems to be a very good idea.
This rum has vanilla and raisin in the nose, then vanilla, cacao and oak on your tongue, with a very good, lasting finish.
Maybe a little to much of brand with the first sip, but this changes sipping on.
Très marqué par le pedro ximenes qui l'a aidé à vieillir, cette diversité fait toute la richesse de ses rhums ayant profité d'un bon finish
I did bring this bottle to friends to have after dinner together with coffee and chocolate. all of us did aprecate it a lot espesially the womans that was negativ towardds Rum from the beginning.
Boy is this one smooth. It has the body of a sherry paired with the attitude of a good rum. I love to have a sip after a good meal. Nice to have on your shelf
og fløjlsblød i munden. Har gode søde nuancer med lækker fylde. Er desværre løbet tør, men kommer nok i skabet igen.
i have today that I had mostly up to this time have only tasted my rum with colas. I know, sacrilege! I am now trying to develope my palate with only an occasional ice cube and letting the rum breath a bit before sampling. I really did enjoy the unique flavor of this style of rum and as many have stated, you can taste the influence of the Sherry! Will have to try another bottle before I pass judgment on future purchases!
Very strong alcohol burn for a 10 yr old rum , almost tastes like whisky ! Not as smooth as i hoped and a dry , hot finish . On the positive side , makes a fantastic cuba libre ! Not a sipper for me this one.
Sweet wine with rum ;) Gorgeous bottle and story.
But, I expected a bit more. With stronger wine flavour and much more expensive than similar Botran reserva.
Great nose, but the taste just doesn't live up. It's good, but not great.
Quite a dark rum. Smooth and somewhat sweet due to the sherry cask aging. Probably more of a sherry taste than I would prefer. Maybe it will grow on me more over time.
