Dos Maderas PX 5+5 rum

Dos Maderas PX 5+5

Barbados | Aged | 40.0% ABV

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.

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.

Lige efter min smag. Sød på den gode måde og fyldig. En af favoritterne i denne prisklasse.

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.

Nez épicé, âpreté de la poire en bouche, assez long
Arôme de muscadou et miel mille fleurs.

Another excellent sipping rum which I enjoy with one ice cube. Delicious fruity notes - almost sherry like. A keeper!

Very nice rum, but I like Ron Zacapa 23 and El Dorado 21 better. Sipped it straight with one ice cube.

Zeer zoete 5 jaar oude rum die daarna ook nog 5 jaar gerijpt is op spaanse sherry vaten. Wel lekker op zich maar niet écht rum meer, had van mij wat minder naar sherry/port mogen smaken.

36 gr/liter suiker toegevoegd. Punt minder.

Dos Maderas 5+5 je směs rumů, které zrály 5 let v Karibiku (Guyana, Barbados), pak byly převezeny do Španělska, kde ve sklepech firmy Williams & Humbert zrají dalších 5 let v sudech po sherry, z toho 3 roky po Palo Cortado a dva roky po dvacetiletém sherry Pedro Ximénez.
Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Guyana,Barbados,Španělsko
Aroma: Hluboká, mohutná vůně, z ktreré je Pedro Ximénez opravdu znát. Lékořice, sirupová nasládlost, kůže, anýz, trochu občas inklinuje i k portskému, s lehkým dotekem hutné ovocné přezrálosti. (88 b)
Chuť: Lékořice, opálené sudy, sladkost PX se tu míchá se suchostí sherry v dochuti, k tomu topinky a med. (91 b)
Body: 90
Shrnutí: Pár lahví Pedro Ximénez jsem v poslední době měl možnost ochutnat a vliv těchto sudů na rum je opravdu markantní. Přitom však stále víte, že opravdu pijete rum. Tohle je originální kousek, který se výrazně odlišuje od ostatních rumů. Za celkové vyznění a originalitu rád zaokrouhluju hodnocení směrem nahoru.
