Dos Maderas PX 5+5 rum

Dos Maderas PX 5+5

Barbados | Aged

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.

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.

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. Update! It's 2020 and there is a new vintage out there. It's very good. Grab as many as you can if you liked the original Dos Maderas.

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.

I really enjoy this product over a rocks cube. Really nice soft flavors. And I'm a big fan PX + Rum.

I've read stories they put some P. Ximenez sherry in this rum and by the taste of it, I could definitely believe those stories. The thing I don't like about this rum is that you get a taste of wet wood, as if someone washed a sherry wine barrel with it. Its not a pleasant oak as usual, but like licking a wet oak barrel. Also, it's too sweet and the taste of sherry is a bit too much for my liking. But otherwise it's an interesting rum, I like when producers get out of the box so it was an interesting try. You get raisins and fruit in the taste, and sherry adds a hefty body and a long aftertaste.

This particular rum was a gift from my daughter, who brought it over and used to make the most wonderful Mai Tai’s. Later I tested it with some Mexican cola and it was wonderful! Smooth and easy to sip, Carmel and vanilla flavours with a bit of fruit flavours. Will look for it again and keep in the cabinet.

I taste for the first time a Dos Maderas Rum. I like the idea of aging in different barrels. The first taste was ok, a very strong taste of malt.

Very dark and smooth. By the right temperature, it smells very smooth and a little sweet. Maybe vanilla and citrus.
