Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
A bit dry, with strong alcohol scent. It opens up in a bit sweet vanila and oak
Smell is wonderful. Very smooth. I was hoping for more flavor but very good rum
This rum is a great find. Loving already it’s brother PX 5+5, I tried this rum and it didn’t dissapoint.
I really like 5+5, it is one of my top choices, 5+3 is quite interesting and I recommend it to all, price is cool, taste is interesting - I advise to have couple of shots, first time we had it we were like - ooh the smell is so so nice, but the taste was rough and dry far from 5+5, the next day I made a small tasting for friends, while trying also El Dorado 8YO, and some "high class" rums, and suddenly the taste "jumped" to the good spectrum... we were surprised, maybe it has something to do with going through young El Dorado which is dryer and more rough, so the final verdict is - it is worth trying and I will buy it some other time :-)
40% ABV. No nose. Seriously… smells like nothing. If I swirl and inhale vigorously, I get the faintest hint of caramel. Wouldn't say sherry if I didn't already know it was there, but it's identifiable in the "after-smell," if that makes any sense (note: I think this means on the back end or finish of the nose). Huh. Palate is agreeable. Still a little light in flavor, which I would characterize as both deep and hollow. There's wood, for sure. Reminds me a tad of MGXO, perhaps, or ST1796? But a little "prickly" like a dry sherry. Strange. As usual, it gets better over time, but still smells like nothing.
When considering the Dos Maderas lineup, I decided to try this one first, and then if I liked it, I'd also try the 5+5. But this one was such a big disappointment, I wish I had just tasted the 5+5 instead. Now, I'm not interested in anything below Luxus (which I've heard is lovely). Just nothing to get excited about here.
Boring and not recommendable.
sherry flavor clearly dominates this rum, so in case you like Sherry this might be interesting. However also a clear alcoholic burn.
Hij is zacht doch stevig. Ontzettend lekker bij een dessert.
This is not my taste.
So hard to say its very bad.
But there are sure better ones.
I had high hopes on the Dos Maderas PX 5+3, but the burn is very off putting and the flavor is a mixed bag of a lot of individual things without anything really shining through. I tasted both the PX 5+5 and 5+3 back-to-back and I have to say they are very close to each other with the 5+3 having a bit more burn over its older sibling.
RON SUAVE CON SABOR A JEREZ. DIFERENTE A LOS RONES TRADICIONALES DEL CARIBE
Jeden ze dvou rumů v mé "skříňce", který nehodnotím na základě alespoň jedné celé vypité flašky. Na rozdíl od Captaina Morgana jsem tenhle ale rozhodně nemusel jít vyplivnout, jen jsem od kamaráda dostal zbylou asi třetinu láhve jako varování, abych zbytečně nevyhazoval peníze za verzi 5+5, což jsem tehdy měl zrovna v úmyslu. A vskutku - ušetřil jsem - dík!
Nebylo to nic špatného, ale také nic moc dobrého, což u mi kořalky za cca 700 Kč přijde málo.
Incuriosisce il fatto che venga fatto stagionare gli ultimi 3 anni (degli 8 totali) in Spagna. Sapore morbido, ma tendente al secco.
Je to sladký rum. Výborný v kombinaci se slanou čokoládou.
Smager okay. Dufter dejligt og har en okay eftersmag.
Nothing fancy, strong alcohol burn for me. But you can still sip it and dont need to add any cola.
Flot farve og krydret duft. Tør i smagen, sprittet og kedelig eftersmag.
Guyana and Barbados origin, finished in aged Sherry oak casks. Satisfying as an sipping rum enjoyed straight up.
Dufter af karamel og vanilje en smule sprittet. Behagelig duft. Den føles rimelig flad i munden. Den smager mest af røg/brændt og meget sprittet. Det er ikke en rom jeg vil udsætte mine smagsløg for igen.
Denne rom er ikke lige mig. Den er for sprittet og for meget røgsmag.
En duft af blomme
I found this rum all in all OK. Easy to drink and enjoy. If in doubt, give it a try.
without hesitating, this one is a good rum for a good price if you are just at the beginning of your rum career! some marzipan, raisins, exotic fruits and of course, sherry! these elements are in this rum. cheers, if you like it sweet and easy!
I didn't expected it to be this complex.
A bit on the dry side.
Bitter and alcohol taste at the start, evolving too a sweet (not too sweet) taste with a bit of oak in it.
Finishes of with some exotic fruits ( and maybe marzipan).
At the first sip i didn't liked it that much. But the more i tasted it the more i liked it.
Sugar: estimated at 14 -16 GPL. This rum is no where near the 5+5 big brother. The Sherry taste is there along with some vanilla, ginger, and honey. It's got a strong alcohol aroma with a trace of something akin to sulphur. It took me back to the 70's when we used to get used whiskey or rum barrels and put water in them to eventually create a wild beverage called "Barrel Wash". Long and strong on the alcohol and short on smoothness. Definitely a "Mix Only" type of rum.
