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.
If you like port/px grape you will looove this rum. Cheers!
Double aged, 5 years in the Caribbean and then 5 more in Jerez Casks in Spain - this rum is smooth, warm with tones of sherry.
just like the 5+3 but 5 years in sherry casks. One of the best buys out there so good
Excellent choix. Offert par mon beau-frère, je me suis racheter une deuxième bouteille une fois terminé. Un gout complexe et bien mélangé. On sens son arome de chêne, de caramel, de noix. Très bon, je le recommande fortement.
I was a bourbon drinker who was told to try this instead with a cigar one night. Mind blown. Complimented my smoke beautifully and had all the traits of a good bourbon, only better. I highly recommend it.
Smooth from start to finish! The bottle, then the Carmel colour, the aroma of both the rum and the sherry casks. Smooth taste and the finish is exquisite.
I love this rum, with a complex agering process and with sherry notes!! it is simply perfect and very different
caramel, Vanilla, orange peel, sherry cask
The aging in sherry casks gives it a rich, sweet, very aromatic, very fragrant,
very special and original Flavor.
one of the best rum I've tried.
Nádherně tmavá barva. Ve vůni karamel, sladké tóny, ovoce, dřevo. Chuť sladší, karamelová až sirupová, tóny ovoce na pozadí. Velmi dobře se pije, jen se musí nechat nadýchat. Začal mi chutnat až po několika ochutnáních a dnes je pro mě jednoznačně mezi top 3 rumy.
This was my first sherry type rum. And is worth to buy!!!
Aroma: nice fruit aroma with wooden finish. Very pleasant smell, no bad smells, very exclusive.
Taste: sweet, sherry/fruity, wooden aftertaste. Taste is similar to smell.
You wont believe this has 40%.
Dégusté ce rhum avec du chocolat noir
Une pure merveille !
Croquer et laisser fondre un morceau de chocolat noir et ensuite déguster une gorgée du rhum PX 5+5 se marient très bien
Des arômes de cerise ou d'amande peut être de noyau
Une bouche tout en douceur et un long final
well, I'm still saving 10 for something that will blow my mind, however I love this one! the smell is great full of rich tones, the taste is smooth, sweet but not overly sweet (although I like sweet rums), you can really tell it has spent some time in barrels, I find something in it that I would even call a woody taste/smell - in a good way, I highly recommend trying this one
Tried this today for the first time and I was impressed! For those of you who like your rum on the sweeter side, you will definitely enjoy this. Very little burn and great flavor sipped neat or with an ice cube.
Slaba vune, plna lehce ostra chut zahnuta dokulata tony kakaa pretrvavaj v ustach i 10 min po polknuti.
Woah!!!!!!!!!! For $40 you get a rum that finishes off with the taste of wine, even if you don't like this, it's definitely a try it at least once type of deal. Great rum for when you want to change things up once in awhile for me it's a staple daily go-to
En heeeelt fantastiskt god rom!!! Kanske lite för spritig för min smak, men det gör faktiskt ingenting alls för en gång skull. Den hamnade raskt på min Top-5-lista!!!
Skvělý kousek! Vzhledem k tomu, že zraje v sudech po sherry, asi nepřekvapí tmavá barva a silná vůně višní. Višně jsou výrazné i v relativně sladké chuti. Pálí jen lehce a velmi, velmi dobře se pije. Překvapilo mě, že je opravdu výrazně jemnější a lepší, než jeho jen o kapku mladší bráška 5+3.
Lækker rom. Sød rom med masser af krydrede smagsnuancer
Top 3 from my point of view but the specific taste is not for everyone. The taste of 20Y old cherry Pedro Chimenez is unbelievable.
One of the other reviews said to let it breathe, just couldn't wait....opened the bottle and was greeted with such a sweet aroma that I had to try. Very smooth, and quite exceptional with a coke mixer. Going to let it breathe more next time and see the difference.
Like wow...never tasted rum like this before. the sherry casks aging gives a brilliant taste addition to this rum
This is one to keep on the shelf it may not be the best but if it was in high school it would have the grades to make the Ivy League.
Smooth and sweet rum… nice color, oily, excellent sipping rum.. caramel, toffee, nuts and also you can feel sherry casks.. very good choice.
Incredibly smooth for such a dark rum. First sip is a bit of an assault on the taste buds. Much stronger than expected, but then smooths out and you taste it at the back of your throat. Smells of molasses, sweet as expected for a dark.
Second glass is even better.
