Rate Dos Maderas Seleccion je sladký. Celkem dobře se pije. Neurazí.

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 8.5 and I will have to round down to an 8 because the original blend of 5+5PX is a better buy and has better taste profile.

Gefällt mir sehr gut, ich wusste beim Kauf bereits, dass er süss ist, aber dazu sehr leckere Aromen!

Dos Maderas 5+5 is one of my favorite go-to rums so was very excited to see the Seleccion available. It's basically everything good about the 5+5 but with more flavor, better body, better aroma, and just as if not more smooth. If I find it available again (not easy) I'll definitely be buying another bottle.

This rum is pretty solid, not so smooth as other rums, but still enjoyable.

A nice smooth rum on the sweeter side. Very drinkable. Some layers of complexity and a medium length finish.

I bought this bottle after trying the 5+5 before. I still prefer the 5+5 above this one, maybe that is because of the nostalgic value it has to me.
The seleccion has a vanilla and fruity smell, Maybe slight woody. The first sip gives some caramel and vanilla taste in the aftertaste There is some very light burn and subtile woody taste.

Much better then 5+5. But depends botle from botle. Sometimes too more spirts just after open of bottle.

I like this rum, it is soft, sweet and it is keenly priced. Yes, I must confess, I do like sweet rums. The limit for me is 40g of sugar per liter (yeah Zacapa), everything higher is just too much. For those who doesn´t know, this one has cca 35 g/l. You can smell vanilla, sherry and caramel. The taste is very soft at the beginning, but than it shows this beautiful middle part, which burns a little and reminds you - "it is rum what you are drinking, not some lemonade". The aftertaste is woody, dry and sherry sweet. In the Dos Maderas family I prefer this one. Dos Maderas 5+5 is good, but after you taste the Selection, you don´t want to go back. If you compare it with Luxus, well, Luxus would win at the end, but the price is 3x higher. So, choose wisely. Personally, I have this rum always ready to take a sip or two.
