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.

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.
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.
