Nice aroma with first traces of sherry. More complex body and little bit less sweet than 5+5, with price only a bit higher!
It's very close to Dos Maderas 5+5: less sweet, smoother in taste, but can't say that extra aging made it richer. No doubt its nice to sip, but I find 5+5 much more interesting for better price.
Sugar: 35 GPL. I like sweet rums and Dos Maderas is one of my most favourite rums. I was excited to see that there was a new version and asked my Florida liquor store (Captain's Liquors in Port Charlotte) to bring in a bottle for me. I rushed home to sample it beside the standard 5+5 PX. The Seleccion is a tad less sweet and you can definitely taste the Guyanese rum influence as well as the Bourbon casks in this blend.
It's very smooth and has a bit more burn than the PX, probably because it is 42% alcohol and has that Guyana influence. The Sherry influence is still dominant, caramel, a bit of oak and vanilla along with dried fruits like figs, dates, plums, anything dark. I really like this rum but I like the 5+5PX just a bit more. I have done several more tastings and I rate this as an 7.5 and I will have to round up to an 8, because the original blend of 5+5PX is a better buy and has better taste profile.
Especially for the price this is great.
The three countries gives the blend an excellent balance. Really love it
Dnes mám asi špatný čich a necítím co bych cítit měl.
V chuti je jemný, cítím čokoládu, kakao s poměrně krátkým závěrem.
Vůně- scherry, máslo, whisky
Chuť - jemně kouřová s náznakem scherry sudu, koření
Celkem slabota. Na 5+5 nemá ani omylem
Really thought this was good even though I am a newbie.
Seems to be fairly dark and Rich tasting.
I need to try the other Dos Maderas offerings...
I very like 5+5, and this Seleccion is similar, maybe a little bit smoother, but there is no big difference between them. I can´t find the difference when I don't drink it at the same time.
Try to get a well lit shot from the front of the rum label
