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.
Dos Maderas PX 5x5 Rum er en meget speciel rom, med en utrolig stor fad smag, men ellers er smag og duft udmærket. Hvis den skal genkøbet går der et stykke tid.
this rum is unusual - aged in PX casks, it's just way sweeter than a rum should be! If you're in the mood for sweet - it goes down a treat though. Very sherry, thick and sweet. I like it.
Sweet nose with just a slight burn. A bit narrow on the pallet as the sweetness dominates, smooth after a slight burn, Very nice as a sipper just not a lot of depth. As a mixer, it shines across the board; cola, citrus, ginger ale and more, it is all good. Haven't used it as a blender yet but can imagine adding a twist to both the traditional and tiki drinks.
There is something to be said about how much you read into what the rums label has to offer you. In the case of this rum it helps flush out a full character of flavor yet it still to me is not a run I would ever use for mixing has such a unique flavor I would consider this to be a sipping rum.
Nose: sweet fruity sirup
Pallet: sweet Porto wine. Absolutely no alc burn.
Complexity: great complexity which just keeps getting better!
I give my best recommendations!
Rum má tmavou barvu a neobvyklou sladkou chuť s náznakem ovoce.
More taste than most in the price range and better sweetness.
Nice everyday rum.
A 6.5 on my scale. A nice flavor. A little oak. A little molasses. Interesting aging process. Both Caribbean and Spain. Straight a little better than mixed
Pour débuter dans le monde du rhum. Gourmand, pas trop de watts. Belle palette de saveurs. Je recommande!
A pale brown color with light shades of bright red, smell - first strong caramel, but the comes the fine citrus, taste long sweet caramel and at the end boxing punch in the palate. Definitely female dominating Rum - sipping it you got sweet though about life continuation with wild acting in the background.
Very good.... sweet ,smooth .. fruity and little bit spicy... I'll put it in my top 3...with diplomatico reserva exclusiva at the top.
I see my review is higher than the others, but this is one of the smoothest rums I have tasted. Some molasses and sweetness, but not as sweet as most of my favorites. Very balanced. Tasted it with 2 others including Zacapa which is one of my favorites and my rating on this was higher.
Aroma with notes of vanilla, red fruits, wine, melasses and nuts. In taste sweet but it has all in all more of a cognac than a rum. Nevertheless it's still great.
Nice rum for the price
Great sweet nose and sweet taste
I wont buy again
Strong rum with nice taste. Good balance between sweet and bitter.
A well balanced tipple with the sweet syrupy PX sherry up front and a slightly smoky demerara rum finish.
You can see the quality in this rum, maybe the taste just doesn't suit me that well.
Not the rum, the fact that a friend I was visiting who knew if like fine rums had a bottle waiting. Quite dark in color, fairly sweet, reminiscent of zacapa. I have not seen this locally so happy I was able to have a taste. Or the whole 750.
has a strong aroma but the it does taste very good
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.
Toto je naozaj nieco, co splna moje kriteria. Koniec je trosku stiplavejsi, ale zaroven ovocny, ceresnovy.
belle découverte avec ce nectar
café chocolat et vanille et bien d'autres saveurs dans cette bouteille..
belle épaisseur en bouche
very similar to the Luxus. Not as deep & complex, but very similar sherry characteristics. This was $13/pour versus $40/pour for Luxus, and close. 88+
Rum určite nie je tuctový. Jeho chuť je výrazne drevitá (predpokladám po dubových sudoch). Osobne mi to ale dosť vadí. (možno aj to je dôvod, prečo nemám rád whisky).
V úvode cítiť jemnú a príjemnú sladkosť (vanilka, med, hrozienka) a v závere má pomerne dosť intenzívny alkoholový dozvuk. Farba je krásne tmavá jantárová a v pohári sa doslova trbliece.
Mám radšej sladšie rumy, pri väčších dúškoch pripomínal skoro whisky. to je aj dôvod prečo si ho už asi nekúpim. Je to ale o tom čo komu chutí. Na celovečerné pitie so švagrom by mal byť OK, ale u manželky s ním neuspejete :)
