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.
Recommendable to most
This rum is delicious easily an 8 a little bit longer in those sherry barrels and it would be a 9! The nose is fruity, forest fruits, it's dark but inviting! On the mouth raisins strong but not overpowering i like it a lot it's syrupy and sweet but not too sweet, theres other flavours there too prunes, blackcurrant and a touch of oaky spiciness subtle but adds to the complexity.
It's a rum I can't stop sipping and it's provenance is behind this: good quality Caribbean rum aged for 5 years in aged oak back to Spain and aged for 3 in 20 yr old sherry and a further 3 in 20 yr pedro ximinez sherry. Sweet, fruity and complex, with a surprising smoothness despite its 10 yr aging.
Am looking forward to trying the 5+3.
I was a bourbon drinker who was told to try this instead with a cigar one night. Mind blown. Complimented my smoke beautifully and had all the traits of a good bourbon, only better. I highly recommend it.
Jeden z mych nejoblibenejsich rumu. Kdyz vezmu v uvahu pomer kvalita/cena tak z toho vychazi hodne dobre. Neda se jinak nez doporucit.
In the glass it has a very nice yet somewhat subtle aroma. Taste is smooth and sweet without being overbearing. You must like sweet and heavier rums to enjoy this one. Overall a well done rum.
