Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Dos Maderas PX Luxus rum is produced using rums from Barbados and Guyana. The unique aging process includes an initial 10 years aging in the Carribean in oak casks. This is followed by an additional 5 years of aging in Spain in casks used to age the sherry Don Guido.
Bodegas Williams & Humbert produces the Dos Maderas family of rums, a well known Spanish winery founded in the late 1800s by Sir Alexander Williams. The region of Spain where the winery is located has a climate perfectly suited for wine and is known as Europe's wine cellar.
Wow wow wow wow ! OH my god !
Nose : Sweet with a lot of alcohol, so I thought I was gonna be disappointed...
In the mouth, oh my god ! The alcohol disappears ! So much flavour ! Very sweet, but in a good way. So round, perfectly balanced, ADDICTIVE !!!
The aftertaste doesn t last long at all...
BEST RUM EVER !!!
Lækker rom, oser af kvalitet hele vejen igennem.
Den tager lige skridtet videre fra den meget lækre 5+5.
Lidt dyr, dog en fed rom at have i samlingen.
Meget lækker rum med god fylde og udvikler sig meget i glas og mund
This is a very good rum, which is surprisingly sweet. I generally like sweet rums, and this is no exception, but the sweetness comes across a bit artificial tasting to me.
Tastes of molasses, spice, sherry, oak, vanilla, almonds, with a unique sweet additive that I can't quite place. It's definitely an excellent rum, though it falls just a bit short of the rums I've rated a 10. Still, this is a high 9 to me, and definitely worth trying if you get the chance.
And opens up nicely with a (very) few drops of water.
Does have notes of a nicely aged port (my other favourite spirit).
Thus far, my 2nd favourite after the Appleton Estate Exclusive.
hold da op jeg er imponeret over fylde og sødme og en meget lang eftersmag. SÅ meget bedre end px 5+5. Dyr men virkelig en lækker rom
Incredibly unique sweet rum, unlike any other rum I can remember. Just a little spice with hazelnut tones. Cherry with nice lingering finish, slight tart hit. Could easily see sipping all night
A rich dark caramel colour.
A sweet and warm taste with a little alcohol flavour, although not a harsh strength.
Caramel and light vanilla with hints of citrus. A truly delightful drink, I was going to save it for occasions and good friends however it is my go to treat.
Just when I thought the normal dos maderas was amazing out comes luxus which is basically a more polished much more smoother version of their rum with wine aftertaste. Get it, get it now.
Jednoznačně nejlepší rum, který jsem kdy pil. Měl jsem možnost ochutnat i cherry, po kterém rum dozrává v sudech a je to opravdu gurmánsky zážitek.
Dejlig blød rom, men god lang eftersmag. Skøn duft.
Very good rum but doesn't worth for the money from my point of view. I would send the money better way😊 like three different bottles of Plantation
Volle body. Proeft ietwat scherp 'alcohol' voor mijn smaak maar toch goed in balans.
Hold da op en god rom. Masser af smag og duft. Sød og rund smag af marzipan og jul.
Duft: sprittet karamel og nødder
Smag: sød og dejlig fyldig i munden der er en del fad. Eftersmag af nødder og chokolade. Den er god. Men ikke pengene værd. Hellere 2-3 andre gode rom
A lot of sherry and simular to. A.H Riise very rare ultra, but this is a little bit better with even more complex and longer aftertaste.
I don't like rum that is heavy on the sherry and this one was. To overwhelming for me. It overpowers the other tastes. Maybe it neede breathing ? Amazing aftertaste, nice burn. Just not my type of rhum.
This rum was one of my tasting objective at the Belgium Rum Fest at Spa. I tasted all the rest of the familly and want to taste this one. And I was not disappointed. Sherry flavor with grapes and figs. Complex, smooth with long finish. The double maturation gives a round and well balanced rum. You are moving into an other world next the rum ;-)
Already pleased by the Dos Maderas 5+5, I have not been dissapointed when I have tasted the Luxus.
This Dos Maderas is sweet and really fruity ( 5 extra years in sherry barrels helps .. ). The finish is not so long but it clearly encourage you to take a new sip. I'll probably ask Santa to bring me one for Xmas :-D
en god rom men vad ska man räkna med det priset...
I love it for a sweet rum. Expensive, but a good rum. If price was lower it would have been a easy 10
a bold and intense rum with heavy tones of sherry. sherry is the dominating taste in this blend. part barbados, part guyana. raisins, chocolate and very much sherry. very sweet and creamy.
For those of us who appreciate, let's say a PLantation XO or a Ron Zacapa XO, the Dos Maderas is very out of left field with its dark fruits, dates and figues notes, but being a spanish Jerez type of wine aficionado, I appreciate the subtle similarities that the Luxus brings with those wine types, because of the aging. But I can understand someone being put off by this. All in all, one of my favorites.
