Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Dos Maderas PX 5 + 5 rum is made from a combination of rums from Barbados and Guyana. It is unique becuase of its triple ageding process where for 5 initial years the rum is aged in the Carribean in oak casks. Next PX 5 + 5 is aged in Spain for 5 years in sherry casks, and lastly for 2 more years in even older sherry casks.
The Dos Maderas family of rums are produced by Bodegas Williams & Humbert, which is a well known Spanish winery founded by Sir Alexander Williams in the late 1800s. The region of Spain where the winery is located has a climate perfectly suited for wine and is known as Europe's wine cellar.
Für den Preis ganz gut, ist ja günstig. Darf ja nicht zu kalt sein, entwickelt den Geschmack erst nach einer Zeit im Glas in Raumtemperatur
Die einzigartige Lagerung führt zu einem außergewöhnlichem Geschmack. Gefällt mir sehr gut!
one on my most favourites, smooth and sweet :)....
I really enjoy this rum. On the nose there's sweet and fruity, on the palate is sherry and sugar, and the finish is smooth and flavorful. In my short list when I want to relax.
Excellent rum solera style. Notes of dry fruits and raisins. Excellent.
What a surprise! One of the best brown rums I ever tasted. Dark brown colour, smooth, full flavor, sweet character. Compares easily with a Qorum of double the price.
My bottle looks different, on the label it says: Dos Maderas Triple Aged Rum 5+5. Don't know if it just looks different or of it is a different rum.
Ok , great taste. .
I bought this while in the Caribbean and I'm happy that I did, although it isn't my favorite rum.
For the price my favorite one! I can understand this is not a taste for everybody, but I like it. Tastes a little bit fruity, sweet but I love it!
Very nice sweet and smooth rum.
A rum I would by again.
I like it best a bit chilled around 15 degrees and after it had a bit of time in the class.
Very nice and aromatic rum with brown carmely, plum and bit resin notes.
Ce ron andaloux est plein de surprises. Son finish en fûts de sherry lui octroie un côté très gourmand sans être trop sucré.
Sweet with a very subtle vanilla (I think). Smooth and with very little burn. Comparable to Doc Brown Dark just half the sweetness
Thanks to my bad experience with Papas Pilar rums, I have stayed away from rums aged in sherry casks. So I had a WTF moment and this rum was only $40, so I took my chances. When I got home, I also had no idea that it has 36 gpl of added sugar, which qualifies it as a sugar bomb. However, since I like it better than my current top sugar bomb (DRE), this now qualifies this one with a rating of 7. Since it is so hard for me to find, I doubt that I will go hunting for it again.
Oh yes, what about the flavors? Despite having the last 5 years aged in sherry barrels in Spain, the sherry flavors are quite subdued and not in your face. It somehow manages to still taste like a rum, because the type of sherry aging is what counts. Very well done, but I have been staying clear from heavily sugared rums. They don't hold their flavors in the bottle and they are bad for one's health.
Dark, smooth, tasty. Nice way to end a cold evening.
A bit harsh at the beginning, after very nice, smooth aftertaste with caramel, vanilla, chocolate, sweet, complex. Delicius; as well as world of sherry.
Velmi zajímavá třešňová chuť, na poprvé nic moc, pokud si člověk zvykne na třešňovou chuť (a že to jde lehce) pak je to jeden z nejlepších rumů co jsem ochutnal
Zdravím a skládam poklonu tomuto umu 5+5 se povedlo aroma naprosto hřejivé až sladké vyvážené. Chuťově bomba jemný uvolňující dojem SUPER požitek do skupiny sladších rumů na pomalé popíjení když mají muži své dny jasná volba !
There are some wonderful rums out there, mostly at higher price points, but time and time again I come back to the magnificent rum. This is the rum I get out for my mates who prefer scotch - and nearly all absolutely love it.
Straight or with a single ice cube, this rum is a perfect blend of smooth caramel with enough complexity and grunt to let you really enjoy it.
Would recommend to those starting out and more experienced rum drinkers alike.
A sweet rum with a balanced amount of oak. Smells of leather and cinnamon. Taste of sweet brown sugar with fruit, faintly butterscotch and nuts. The perfect amount of oak to tame the finish. I don’t find that it has any of the burn that others describe. Definitely a thumbs up at this price.
This is a Fine rum. Not to sweet, not to dry. I'm Just not a big fan of the after taste, but I can imagine a lot of People Will Like this rum.
Not very intense but very fine smell. The alcohol overlaps some of the aromas. The taste is intensiv, sweet, balanced and spicy.
Smell: dried fruit, spice, burnt sugar, nutmeg, light sweetness, wood, fruits (mandarine)
Taste initial: burnt caramel, fig, mandarine, spice
Middle: spice, light sherry note, oak, sweetness.
Finish: middle long, sweet, burnt suggar
Aftertaste of burned caramel and then sherry, after 2min.
Pretty good for the price.
Sweetness: 3.5 / 5
Fruit: 3.5 / 5
Mildness: 3.5 / 5
Similar rum: Esclavo XO, more balanced, not that spicy, more wood, more mandarine in the taste and smell
One of my favorites. Solid sipping rum with a bit of a sugary taste.
I was excited to try this rum and it sure did not disappoint. A blend of Guyanese and Bajan rums, the ageing in Sherry barrels is sure noticeable. I get dried fruit and burnt sugar on the nose and going down. Slight woodiness in the aftertaste. Very little burn. Very smooth. A rum I will buy again.
