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.
Robe très foncé. Nez sur le tabac. Gout Tawny avec un petit coté mélasse. Facile d'approche. Pour mois, c'est le meilleur rhum dans cette catégorie de prix. Toujours aussi surprenant
This is the epitome of a thick sherry version of rum. Nice and sweet with a much heavier feel than most rums. Great peppery nose, and almost a walnut taste. The drawback to me is the finish, which is long and sticky - and seems to linger, but not in a great way.
Sugar: 36 gpl. This was one of my favorite rums with a rating of 9. Sweet and and very smooth with tastes of Port and Sherry. The rating of 9 is for the version shown in the left of the picture. It's now April 2015 and I just purchased a replacement bottle. The packaging has changed with the telltale sign being the removal of the printed gold ring around the top of the cylinder the bottle comes in. The foil is a darker brown and the label is different. Most important is that the taste is also quite different. The new release is not as smooth or sweet, and a pronounced oak taste with a smokey burn in the mouth. I have tried this several ways and I ended up dumping the bottle. For this reason, I would rate the new vintage a 5 and not buy it again. The point of this is like a fine wine, if you find a rum that you really like, buy several bottles from the same store as subsequent releases can disappoint you.
A different taste from the "usual" rums, but I like it a lot. The taste from the sherry casks does a really good job. I would love to taste the 10+5 some time. More of this please - certainly a re-buy.
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.
This is a Fine rum. Not to sweet, not to dry. I'm Just not a big fan of the after taste, but I can imagine a lot of People Will Like this rum.
Smell: dried fruit, spice, burnt sugar, very light sweetness.
Not very intense but very fine smell. Exactly how I like it.
Flavor: caramel, spice, light sherry note, oak, sweetness.
Aftertaste of sherry.
Pretty good for the price.
Sweetness: 3.5 / 5
Fruit: 3.5 / 5
Mildness: 3.5 / 5
One of my favorites. Solid sipping rum with a bit of a sugary taste.
I was excited to try this rum and it sure did not disappoint. A blend of Guyanese and Bajan rums, the ageing in Sherry barrels is sure noticeable. I get dried fruit and burnt sugar on the nose and going down. Slight woodiness in the aftertaste. Very little burn. Very smooth. A rum I will buy again.
So smooth!!! So unique!! Colour and aroma are truly awesome
Veľmi chutný rum a jeden z najlepších v kategórii do 30EUR. Naozaj cítiť dozrievanie v sudoch po Sherry Pedro Ximenez. Má peknú nasladlu dochut. Vo variante PX5+5 je výborný,ďaleko lepší ako 5+3 a dokonca pre mňa osobne chutnejší aj ako verzia Seleccion. Odporúčam každému,kto chce kvalitný rum bez investovania veľkých finančných prostriedkov. Pre mňa na úrovni 7,7
Vanilla, caramel, and raisin notes. A little sweet, but overall a good sipper.
First thing that struck me was the aroma after I cracked the seal and popped out the cork. Inhaled the rum scent and was immediately looking forward to my first sip. Poured some over ice and gave my glass a quick shake. First sip was surprisingly very smooth. No sharp or harsh taste going down. Drinking from a sniffer would have probably gave me a better experience to capture the scent and taste all at once. Strongly recommend.
Very sweet but Nice. No ice, just room temperature. Negatives? If you start, you will see empty bottle soon
Definitely an exciting option to traditional benchmark rums. Let it breathe a bit longer than usual and you should not be disappointed.
Very nice rum with a strong flavour accented with a wonderful aftertastes of maple syrup and pomelo. Great for loooooong nights in front of fireplace and with philosophy book on your lap.
This is good. Not a Molasses profile guy but I do really like this one. I only drink this one neat, and the flavor profile is Molasses forward (not too dominant), with a caramel slight raisin finish. It's a tad on the sweeter side but not a sugar bomb at all. Definitely one enjoyable rum and one I'll happily buy again.
Aged in pedro... for me very nice smell... really friendly...i like this one and will try one more bottle 😉
You can taste that it was stored in Wooden Barrels. A very Gentle, Round taste and Pure. It is a real pleasure.
Он шикарен! Пока что мой фаворит. Прекрасный аромат, насыщенный вкус. Чувствуется бочка и приятная сладинка.
A dark colour and strong aroma. A strong after taste and warming feel.
This famous Rum is thanks to Sherry cask. Complex and tasteful.
The flover of molasess and some fruits are melted together to create a nice taste.
I should bought this sooner.
Bought this after recommendation from colleague. It was nice surprise because rum is very smooth and well balanced. In mouth you can feel hints of vanilla, raisins, chocolate and sherry.
This rum is a party for your mouth. I love sweet rums and this one delivers. It isn't even that expensive so it's very worth the price you pay for it. Keep this one neet without ice or any other liquid. Just enjoy dos maderas 5+5 in your glass!!
