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.
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.
Smell: dried fruit, spice, burnt sugar, nutmeg, light sweetness.
Not very intense but very fine smell. Exactly how I like it.
Taste: burnt caramel, fig, spice, light sherry note, oak, leather, sweetness.
Finish: Long, sweet, burnt caramel.
Aftertaste of sherry.
Pretty good for the price.
Sweetness: 3.5 / 5
Fruit: 3.5 / 5
Mildness: 3.5 / 5
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.
So smooth!!! So unique!! Colour and aroma are truly awesome
Veľmi chutný rum a jeden z najlepších v kategórii do 30EUR. Naozaj cítiť dozrievanie v sudoch po Sherry Pedro Ximenez. Má peknú nasladlu dochut. Vo variante PX5+5 je výborný,ďaleko lepší ako 5+3 a dokonca pre mňa osobne chutnejší aj ako verzia Seleccion. Odporúčam každému,kto chce kvalitný rum bez investovania veľkých finančných prostriedkov. Pre mňa na úrovni 7,7
Vanilla, caramel, and raisin notes. A little sweet, but overall a good sipper.
First thing that struck me was the aroma after I cracked the seal and popped out the cork. Inhaled the rum scent and was immediately looking forward to my first sip. Poured some over ice and gave my glass a quick shake. First sip was surprisingly very smooth. No sharp or harsh taste going down. Drinking from a sniffer would have probably gave me a better experience to capture the scent and taste all at once. Strongly recommend.
Very sweet but Nice. No ice, just room temperature. Negatives? If you start, you will see empty bottle soon
Nice bottle with a cool story, this rum opens up with a rather sweet dose of spices in the aroma, followed by smooth smell of fruit and what I presume to be sherry after also tasting the sherry minibottles that came with the rum. The end of the aroma also catches a nice dried plum scent. Dark copper colour, medium legs run down my glass quite slowly after twirling it a few times..
The taste is very strange for me, and includes some biterness, honey, sherry and generally fruity taste, some tastes also found in heavy dry red wines, and alcohol but very manageable amount. Upon adding a few drops of water (tried 2-3 drops into a 0.02l amount of the spirit), the taste seems to smoothen around the edges and become less artificially sweet and more honey-like.
Almost no afterburn or exit, makes me wonder if this ain't a sweet syrup for kids or something. Oh and makes a crazy cool mixer to make your cocktails just a little different, however not sure it is priced as a casual mixer for everyone. Cannot say I do not like it, one glass is an interesting experience, but I would prefer to sip something else through the evening. Also offered this to three laides, each of whom was kinda happy, but nothing exceptional, They were only astonished by the rum once I actually used it to mix their favourite drinks, Jungle Bird, Daiquiri, "tequilla" sunrise and a non-jamaican Planter's Punch.
Very good sweet smell. Taste also sweet, hangs in your mouth for a good time.
First of all, if you don't like sherry or sherry aroma, you should keep your hands off this rum. But if you get involved, you will find a great, pleasantly sweet and mild rum with a wonderful sherry aroma. At the beginning I was a bit sceptical because I generally don't drink sherry very often, but this rum is something different. Not too sweet, hardly any alcoholic bite and a sherry note that is not too strong and harmonizes wonderfully with the other flavours. Nearly full score!
Definitely an exciting option to traditional benchmark rums. Let it breathe a bit longer than usual and you should not be disappointed.
Very nice rum with a strong flavour accented with a wonderful aftertastes of maple syrup and pomelo. Great for loooooong nights in front of fireplace and with philosophy book on your lap.
This is good. Not a Molasses profile guy but I do really like this one. I only drink this one neat, and the flavor profile is Molasses forward (not too dominant), with a caramel slight raisin finish. It's a tad on the sweeter side but not a sugar bomb at all. Definitely one enjoyable rum and one I'll happily buy again.
Aged in pedro... for me very nice smell... really friendly...i like this one and will try one more bottle 😉
You can taste that it was stored in Wooden Barrels. A very Gentle, Round taste and Pure. It is a real pleasure.
Он шикарен! Пока что мой фаворит. Прекрасный аромат, насыщенный вкус. Чувствуется бочка и приятная сладинка.
A dark colour and strong aroma. A strong after taste and warming feel.
This famous Rum is thanks to Sherry cask. Complex and tasteful.
The flover of molasess and some fruits are melted together to create a nice taste.
I should bought this sooner.
Bought this after recommendation from colleague. It was nice surprise because rum is very smooth and well balanced. In mouth you can feel hints of vanilla, raisins, chocolate and sherry.
This rum is a party for your mouth. I love sweet rums and this one delivers. It isn't even that expensive so it's very worth the price you pay for it. Keep this one neet without ice or any other liquid. Just enjoy dos maderas 5+5 in your glass!!
Sweet, but not too sugared, molasses aroma, with some nuts and cherry flavours. A nice rhum!! Even if a little too sugared for me.
Un rhum surprenant, un festival de saveurs : la mélasse, fruits secs, de cherry. Juste un peu trop sucré pour moi. Mais très bien fait !!!
