Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Dos Maderas PX Luxus rum is produced using rums from Barbados and Guyana. The unique aging process includes an initial 10 years aging in the Carribean in oak casks. This is followed by an additional 5 years of aging in Spain in casks used to age the sherry Don Guido.
Bodegas Williams & Humbert produces the Dos Maderas family of rums, a well known Spanish winery founded in the late 1800s by Sir Alexander Williams. The region of Spain where the winery is located has a climate perfectly suited for wine and is known as Europe's wine cellar.
All the other releases to the manufacturer are a much better item than this. I’m not saying it’s a bad rum, but it’s too sweet and the average body doesn’t match the name “luxus”!
Wow wow wow wow ! OH my god !
Nose : Sweet with a lot of alcohol, so I thought I was gonna be disappointed...
In the mouth, oh my god ! The alcohol disappears ! So much flavour ! Very sweet, but in a good way. So round, perfectly balanced, ADDICTIVE !!!
The aftertaste doesn t last long at all...
BEST RUM EVER !!!
Sugar: 35 GPL. Wonderful sweet mix of sherry, wood, caramel, chocolate and a touch of spice. Aroma matches the taste. Soft on the palate with a lingering taste and warmth. Fabulous rum!
I like sweet rums and I would put this rum in my top five along with Diplomatico Ambassador,Abeulo Centuria, El Dorado 25, and Appleton Joy. It’s not easy to find and if you feel like spending $160 USD then go for it!
A bit of alcohol at the beginning but if you let it rest for a while in the glass the sticky alcohol fades and you smell sweet aromas of almond, caramel, orange, and vanilla.
In mouth you feel the smoothness of this rum. You taste almonds, vanilla, oak and some sherry. A very sweet rum. The aftertaste is a bit to short with sweetness, sherry and some spice.
The Dos Maderas Luxus is obviously a sipping rum that I enjoy neat. One of my favourites.
This is a very good rum, which is surprisingly sweet. I generally like sweet rums, and this is no exception, but the sweetness comes across a bit artificial tasting to me.
Tastes of molasses, spice, sherry, oak, vanilla, almonds, with a unique sweet additive that I can't quite place. It's definitely an excellent rum, though it falls just a bit short of the rums I've rated a 10. Still, this is a high 9 to me, and definitely worth trying if you get the chance.
Lækker rom, oser af kvalitet hele vejen igennem.
Den tager lige skridtet videre fra den meget lækre 5+5.
Lidt dyr, dog en fed rom at have i samlingen.
Silný dobrý rum. Ale za ty peníze a chválu ze všech stran jsem čekal víc.
Vůně- dřevěný sud, datle, vanilka
Chuť- cherry sud, rozinky, koření
Dobrý, ale za 3500,- je to nesmysl.
A very fine rum. It is sweet and spicy at the same time. It is not overpowering but instead very well balanced. I really enjoy this bottle.
A 15 year old rum from Barbados, ABV 40%. The rum was matured in oak barrels for 10 years using the solera method and then matured in sherry casks for 5 years.
Bottle: Luxurious in the shape of a tortoise shell, delivered in a nice case.
Colour: Dark amber, thicker (sticky) consistency.
Nose: It's sweet and there's a strong sherry influence. There is vanilla, caramel, raisins, wine barrel with woody notes. However, it is not much more specific than other rums aged in sherry casks.
Taste: Smooth, sweet with woody notes. There are almonds, walnuts, caramel, honey, only slightly woody notes and finally smoke.
Finish: Medium to long.
Conclusion: This is a rather sweet rum with a slightly woody and smoky finish. It is a good rum, but the price is quite exorbitant. I deduct half a point for that.
Overall rating: 8.5 /10
