Recommendable to most
Nice aroma with first traces of sherry. More complex body and little bit less sweet than 5+5, with price only a bit higher!
Now my favorite rum. 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.
I decide to buy it, because I try 5+5, but I expect something more. It is great rum, but I when I was tasting it, I have also opened bottle 5+5, and difference was to small = 0.
Dos Maderas Seleccion is a sweet and pleasant. Like drinking a sweet dessert. Nose is okay. Lots of caramel, vanille and a small hint of red berries in the taste. A really easy sipper that does not harm anyone. If you like sweet rum, this will be one of your favorit. Personally it is too sweet for me, but I would still rate it 8 (the sweet taking into account).
Smells like Coca Cola! Overall good. Sweet, smooth, and pleasant. Smokiness on the back of the palette that gives this a slightly unpleasant finish, but pretty good otherwise.
