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.

Cenovka 30 eur - to je už vyšší level rumov, čakám teda pomerne slušný zážitok. Fľaša pekne gravírovaná, svojská, farba tmavšia, červenohnedá. Vôňa je dosť jemná, ovocná. Prvý dúšok ma prekvapil výraznou sladkosťou, je to doslova polovičný likér. Našťastie necítiť umelosť, naopak, dominujú prirodzené tóny hrozienok, ovocia, ale aj vlašských orechov a možno trochu espressa... nápoj je veľmi jemný, žiadny burn. Hoci je tento rum dosť sladký, na pozadí je stále cítiť to podstatné, DUB. Ten po chvíli doslova vypláva na povrch a drží dlhý záver. Až nečakane príjemné pitie. Celkovo spokojnosť, žiaľ z dôvodu vysokého obsahu cukru a aj cenovky nemôžem dať vyšší rating ako 7.
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.
