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 never been a rum person, bourbon and Irish whiskey are more my style. Then I found a rum that like more than Bourbon! I went o Key west and there is a rum bar there, we did a number of flights, this was the rum that we both liked best.
I now have three bottles of rum in my house. This one Dos Maderas 5+5, Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, and Bacoo 12 year. This one is my favorite, closely followed by Bacoo 12 year, the Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva has too much molasses taste so takes third place.
The Dos Maderas is smooth with a Carmel nose very little alcohol bite and a nice sherry finish. I highly recommend it. However, if you are looking for bang-for-the-buck Buy Bacoo 12 year, it so close of a second that I can not justify paying 50% more for the Dos Maderas...
One of the best rums I have ever tried, great value for money, interesting story. Robust flavor, dark color, very delicate after taste.
Suggested by the bartender James at the JW Marriott, Marco Island. Great entry level rum with a bourbon flair. Very smooth and silky with an easy finish. Perfect match with a Bolivar Coronas cigar.
Thanks James!! Cw
Rum drinkers or not, I'm yet to serve this for anyone who didn't enjoy it.
I must have given 4-5 bottles as gifts and they're always received well.
Excellent choix. Offert par mon beau-frère, je me suis racheter une deuxième bouteille une fois terminé. Un gout complexe et bien mélangé. On sens son arome de chêne, de caramel, de noix. Très bon, je le recommande fortement.
Pour over one piece of ice & slowly consume. Feel the smooth, delicious flavour of vanilla overtones as you drink.
I drank a bottle in no time at all due to the actual texture & flavour of this luscious liquid.
Smooth from start to finish! The bottle, then the Carmel colour, the aroma of both the rum and the sherry casks. Smooth taste and the finish is exquisite.
Tenhle rum mě opravdu bavil. Určitě to bude tím zráním v sudech po sherry, ale při pití jsou krásně v chuti cítit višně v čokoládě. Ne zas moc aby to nepřebilo vlastní chuť rumu.
