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.

Classic rum aint what comes to mind here. The sherry finish shines through quite a lot. Regardless this is quite tasty. On the nose you find caramel and fruits. The taste is very sweet and fruity, with clear notes of plum and raisin. Medium body. Very nice if your in the mood for it.

One of the best rums I have ever tried, great value for money, interesting story. Robust flavor, dark color, very delicate after taste.

The first time I tried this rum,I was somehow confused. The taste is nothing like classic rum. You can definitely taste the sweetness of sherry as well as smell the dried fruit aromas. I enjoy this rum a lot.

There can be no doubting the quality and uniqueness here - raw material from Barbados and Guyana aged five years in oak, then transferred to Spain for 5 more years in Sherry barrels (two types!). The result has incredible flavor intensity, wonderful aroma and a gorgeous color. But from the first sniff, it's hard to know if you're tasting a rum...or a sherry...or something else. To my taste, this spirit steps over some imaginary line. It's not really a "rum experience". If you're looking for new and unique, try this. If you are a rum drinker looking for a pure, quality rum experience, look elsewhere.

after picking up a bottle of plantation with infused pineapple for a good friend this bottle stood right next to it. i remembered it to be on my wishlist so i treated myself as well. after opening and smelling it i already knew, i'm gonna like this one! and indeed this rum did not disappoint. it's sweet and fruity, much like diplomatico so it's not for the dry rum enthusiasts (they will hate it and call it a non rum lol, or so this site teaches us). i like it even better than diplomatico and that's been my go to rum for a good while. price range is a titbit higher but comparable. this will be added to my "need to have in stock" list. always nice to be surprised!

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...

When you add sherry to a rum, you shouldn't be surprised when you end up with a rum that tastes like sherry. If you really like raisins and rums with tons of added sugar, you might like this. If you do some digging, you can find out that Dos Maderas tops off the barrel with sherry, since they solera-age and reuse the barrels for so long that they need to add sherry to keep the flavor consistent.
