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.
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 :)
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.
