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.
Recommendable to most
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.
Nose: Light caramel. Anise.
Feel: Very light to start. Slightly oily. Walms up for a sweet sharp finish. Lingers slightly.
Taste: Muscovado, sherry (however I prefer the finish on the Brugal 1888). Cheery.
Value: 65 CAD. Probably 15 too much.
Wow, that is a lot of taste for little money. So sweet and "round" in the flavour.
The sherry casks defintely plays a big role here.
It is not bad at all, but I do not think it is as good as it costs. It definitely tastes different, there are the dry rums, the "sweet" ones, and this one. It has a long caramel taste and very nutty smell. In the beginning it tastes like a sweet rum but its flavor diverts to a new rum experience as the seconds pass.
Not the best rum, but will yield a satisfactory night.
I have reached my limit for sherry rums in DM 5+5. The class of rum is not my style and this one pushes me off the cliff. Now if you like sherry, you will really like this rum. If you love sherry, this will become one of your favorite rums. My significant other drinks sherry and I cannot keep this rum on the shelf because of her. So I'm going to give you her rating or 9 rather than mine. All words mine, influenced by her.
Glass: Beautiful. This is a lovely glass, label, seeing the rich brown-red spirit says warm and inviting. The bottle says classy, not just a rum.
Bottle Aroma: SHERRY. And more sherry.
Glass Aroma: This rum opens up like few others, but like other sherry rums leaves you wondering if there is rum in this bottle.
Taste: Ah, there's the rum. An explosion of complex flavors, floral, I detected a hint of mineral tastes that while not unpleasant, were out of character of the rest of the flavors. The oak treatments are not lost and this rum just keeps giving. The distiller, taster, and blender of Dos Maderas deserves an applause for this rum. It is unique.
This rum is not currently on my shelf. This is not by choice, it simply disappears and getting a hold of it is not easy where I live. If I were to make rum and use sherry casks for aging, this is the bar I would hold myself to.
Agréable au nez, le pruneau domine, des notes de réglisse apparaissent après quelques minutes.
En bouche l'influence du vieillissement en fûts ayant contenu du sherry se fait clairement sentir. Un peu trop sucré à mon gout (du caramel ayant été ajouté) et manque de longueur.
Finalement ce rhum est à recommander aux amateurs de porto.
Un bon rhum, il ne rentre pas encore dans mon top 3 mais s'en approche. On retrouve des notes boisées et épicées tout en ayant un gout assez sucré. A recommander
Nice color, great story.. But to me it tastes lika a peated whisky with sugar in it.. Sorry to say since i had my hopes up for this one.
