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.
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 :)
Ein sehr leichter Rum aber dennoch mit einer gewissen Eleganz. Im Mund ostber schnell weg aber man bekommt dennoch einige Noten von Holz, diverse Bitternoten und Melasse typische Geschmacksnoten.
Vliv sherry jasnej. Po polknutí cítim silnou dřevitost, ty sudy....zajímavý, hodně originální rum.
Nice nosing with notes of caramel, burnt sugar and molasses. But the palate could not develop positively from that point. Having taken the first sip, the flavor notes revealed during the nosing turn off immediately only to give way to an extreme level of sweetness. This keeps on and the finish is also relatively short, leaving only the sweet (not fruity) flavor of sugar. So in my view somewhat disappointing as the nosing indicates that the molasses used have clearly some quality. The level of sweetness makes this rum suspicious for added sugar.
Ultra smooth and sweet, almost to the point it is unbalanced (needs more character). I still thoroughly enjoyed it
I absolutely love this sipper, it’s smooth, no burn, and has hints of raisin, fig and vanilla. I love Demerara and Barbados, so I would compare this to El Dorado 12 or Plantation 20, which in case you didn’t know it are the 2 best sippers for the price, period. I don’t give a care if some folks say these are too sweet, it’s fine with me and still doesn’t have much sugar per ounce, maybe 1 gram or less. I enjoy a sweet sipper and this one is now in my top 5, Diplomatico Reserva being another. I also appreciate rums such as Foursquare Zinfandel, so I don’t just love sweet ones.
Very surprised by this Rum. Definitely up there as one of my current favorites.
Did buy a bottle to have at my wedding together with some scotchs. Did far exceed my expectations. Bought it for 30 euros so did not expect much. Really sweet (in a good way) and smooth rum. There is some aftertaste of alcohol to it, which I am still not sure I like or dislike. For the price it was a steal and I will try other from this brand for sure.
Intense cask taste. At start some alcohol vapors prevents full smell experience.
After 10-15 mins more aromas comes noticeable. All present vanilla as dominant (beside caks taste). Not to sweet. This is an interesting Rum, lots of flavors.
...what a delicious product! It’s on the sweeter side and pretty good stuff. If you’re able to taste it, go ahead you won’t regret it.
Hard to nail this one down I find the rum very smooth and an enjoyable sipper the sherry cast finish give the rum it’s unique flavour , two thumbs up from me if you like to have a glass and enjoy all the nuances that come out in this rum as the ice melts
Smooth smooth smooth
Even after 20 minutes in the glass, it still burns going down, i have tasted other rums that have afteraged i portcask, but this one has a very funky taste, i dont like it at all.
Now thisis some good stuff'..........................
Sa robe est d’un cuivre soutenu aux reflets rouges.
Au nez… pas mal de choses. Il y a des fruits, frais avec le raisin, confits avec le pruneau et à coque avec la noix, puis l’amande après un moment. Le fût est là aussi et nous offre un boisé bien équilibré et des notes de tabac. Il offre de manière générale une impression gourmande et sèche, intéressante.
En bouche, nous sommes sur le tabac et la noix, les fruits confits sont là aussi mais un peu en arrière-plan. L’ensemble est doux mais assez équilibré avec l’alcool.
La finale est longue. On retrouve des arômes appréciés plus tôt : le tabac, la noix, le pruneau et le boisé.
If you like sherry aroma you would be satisfied, if not don't buy it. But most important it needs lot of time to breathe and oxidized. The rum is getting better after half of bottle is gone.
First time I opened it was to heavy on the nose and little bit bitter and harsh. I was disappointed and I left the bottle a side. After a time a got back and I was surprised by the change that happened during the short time.
On the nose you can smell sherry, dark fruits, plums and raisins, dried fruits, oak, a hint off nuts from the PX casks, vanilla in the beck, it reminds me on some cognac aroma, the sweetness comes through, but a different kind it is a fruit sweetness from sherry cask, and at the end after a sip you can get hint of chocolate and cacao.
On the palate you taste sweetness followed by sherry and wine taste, first time I tasted bitterness and harshness but next time it was more like nuts, spiciness, oakiness and a chocolate at the end.
The finish I had hint of coffee, but the end is not really long.
Overall it is a good rum, just need time to let him breath and then you can enjoy the complexity given from PX casks that make him special and worth to try. It is a good buy for its prize.
OMG nice fragrance of Sherry!
The taste is very sweet with touch of dried fruits (plums and raisins).I love it!
Chutny sladsi rum... Dozrieva 5 rokov v sudoch po sherry a je to v chuti aj citit. Vonia menej vyrazne za ovocim a melasou. Nieje to vynimocny rum, ale v tejto cenovej hladine to nieje ani ziadne sklamanie... treba skusit.
Great color and smell, but it's way too sweet for my liking. Almost wine-like. And I'm not a wine guy. It's drinkable though, so I can't give it less than a 5. I tend to prefer a spicier blend without as much sweetness.
This rum was quite a surprise. Bought a nice gift set with the 5x5 and 4 small 4cl ones. 1 of the cask it was in for the first 5 years, 1 5x3, 1 with the sherry from the cask where the rum was in afterwards for 3 years (this is the 5x3). And 1 with the sherry from the cask where the rum was in afterwards for 2 years. And a piece of the sherry cask itself.
It's a smooth rum where the taste of the sherry casks is in the end of a sip. Not too sweet, not too harsh. It has its own distinctive taste.
caramel, Vanilla, orange peel, sherry cask
The aging in sherry casks gives it a rich, sweet, very aromatic, very fragrant,
very special and original Flavor.
one of the best rum I've tried.
This doesn't have much of a rum taste. Definitely more of a Sherry taste to it. Not sweet or smooth
The bottle have a cheap price, but really great rhum for this money.
- small sweet and tipical melassa flavor rhum
- great density, mark on the glass
- first smell intense of caramel and vanilla, back flow of spice
- in the mouth first zip is sweet enough to give you the harmony of balanced fruits and spice .
- in the swallow no burning, but good pleasure of liquor and remaining long last vanilla taste.
Very good rhum to combine with chocolate.
