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.
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.
I do not know the taste of cherry but this 10-year rum I like a lot. Slightly sharp on the start but the finish is delicate and you can feel the taste of raisins and figs.
Très parfumé en nez et en bouche , j'aime bien ce rhum car il présente une certaine douceur en bouche et une tenue du gout en longueur.
synes den mangler fylde, har lidt for meget sprit i eftersmagen. En tynd omgang ifht DM luxus, men der er også stor prisforskel.
Vraiment surprenant a la premiere gorgee... et abordable!!!
le double vieillissement est réussi, original, et laisse une longueur en bouche des plus plaisante
The sherry flavors are just enough to be noticed but don't at all take away from this being a rum at it's foundation. A very smooth and sweet sipper that I probably will be getting replacement bottles of.
Il ne ressemble à aucun autre avec son double vieillissement dont une partie en fut de xérès. Presque Rapeux. Un de mes préférés, et à un prix accessible.
Duften lidt diskret, tydelig sherry og en del eg i smagen, men lidt sprittet i eftersmagen. God.
Nose: Light caramel. Anise.
Feel: Very light to start. Slightly oily. Walms up for a sweet sharp finish. Lingers slightly.
Taste: Muscovado, sherry (however I prefer the finish on the Brugal 1888). Cheery.
Value: 65 CAD. Probably 15 too much.
Wow, that is a lot of taste for little money. So sweet and "round" in the flavour.
The sherry casks defintely plays a big role here.
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 is not bad at all, but I do not think it is as good as it costs. It definitely tastes different, there are the dry rums, the "sweet" ones, and this one. It has a long caramel taste and very nutty smell. In the beginning it tastes like a sweet rum but its flavor diverts to a new rum experience as the seconds pass.
Not the best rum, but will yield a satisfactory night.
