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.
I am big fan of rum, which is why, I do reviews on the site. I am, however, also very fond of PX-sherry, so it was only a matter of time before I got around to tasting this bad boy.
Nose: Big hit of sherry with a signature smell of raisins and wood
Taste: Classic sherry-tastes of figs, dates and raisins. A small burn with a long aftertaste.
Overall: This is a very nice rum with a big hit of sherry in both smell, taste and mouthfeel. It can be a bit to sweet for some, but if you love either rum or sherry, then this should be right up your alley.
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.
Taste initial: burnt caramel, fig, spice
Middle: spice, light sherry note, oak, leather, sweetness.
Finish: middle long, sweet, burnt caramel.
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
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
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 !!!
Nichts für den puren Genuss. Als Longdrink zu gebrauchen.
Smooth and complex rum with a touch of sweet cherry.
Solid smooth rum with a lot of complexity. The sherry is strong on the finish by not overpowering. Excellent sipper, would never use in cocktails
