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
Il fallait oser aller aussi loin dans le côté Sherry, et je trouve que c'est très bien réussi. Assez atypique car son côté Porto n'a pas d'égal chez d'autres rhums.
Il a les caractéristiques d'un rhum de tradition anglaise (boisé, subtilement fruité, tabac, épices douces...) et un côté prune voire même pruneau très présent et fin à la fois.
Très sympa à l'apéritif (avec un petit jambon serrano)
Une autre belle porte d'entrée dans le monde du rhum
An amber color. Its nose is with some notes of Plum and raisins. The taste is sweet with some nice taste of plum and fruit. The sherry finish is Just a Good varm feeling with no Long afterburn.
Very very smooth. Very interesting notes from the sherry casks makes this a pretty complex experience, but it is definitely recommendable.
Flot mørk farve, sød duft, og allerede her trænger sherryen igennem. Også megen sødme i smagen, lidt noter af rosin, dadler, men ellers er sherryen meget gennemtrængende.
Grabbed a bottle after I noticed I quite like a sherried scotch. How could a sherry-casket rum not be better? Love the mouth feel.
Double aged, 5 years in the Caribbean and then 5 more in Jerez Casks in Spain - this rum is smooth, warm with tones of sherry.
Already the smell is very different and not rum-like. Taste is really caramely sweet, more like a sherry. Lovely wood flavour, tobacco, very intense... Not what I associate with rum, but excellent nonetheless.
