Dos Maderas PX 5+5 Rum (1 x 0.7 l)
About this deal
Since then, some of the house wines and brandies have been kept in oak casks of the highest quality (soleras). The rum displays itself as a rich brown coloured spirit which is obviously displaying the characteristic hue of a ‘sherried’ spirit. Alexander Williams, a great connoisseur and admirer of sherry products, and Arthur Humbert, a specialist in international relations.
I get light and short aromas of red grapes, red grape skin, grape-flavored cough syrup, raisins, cinnamon, figs, and vanilla. While ‘Sherried Whisky’ has a long tradition in Scotland, a ‘Sherried Rum’ is a relatively new (and relatively exciting) development. In fact, I can taste the sherry so clearly that my feeling is that rather than the sherry casks acting to enhance the flavour, the sherry is at times pushing the rum aside and dominating the spirit. 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. These rums are sent to Jerez to be aged for an additional three years in 20 year old Palo Cortado casks, and an additional two years in casks of 20 year old Pedro Ximénez casks.The bottling serves up delightful notes of leather, sweet dried fruits, molasses, crumbling brown sugar, dark vanilla, chocolate, nutmeg, orange peel, walnuts, cloves, dark oak, toffee, and espresso. Dos Maderas 5+5 PX begins its journey in the Caribbean, where we carry out a careful selection of rums from Guyana and Barbados. In fact, if I tasted this spirit blind, it might be hard for me to decide whether I was sampling a rum or a sherry. In addition, its alcohol content of 40% makes it a powerful but balanced drink that can be enjoyed on any occasion.
But keep with it, the sweetness is obvious but the taste and smell does mature as you you make your way through the bottle. The rum matures for the first five years in American oak barrels in the Caribbean until it is shipped to Europe, Spain. While it may not be an immediate staple choice for my galley, I have filled a 10 ounce bottle of it to revisit at a later date.
The Dos Maderas PX 5+5 rum has a dark amber color and an intense aroma of dried fruits, caramel, and vanilla. However, you can also accept or reject further cookies at any time or specify which of these cookies you would like to agree to.
While many of my favorite Rums have spent some time hanging out in used Sherry casks, they haven’t lost their primary identity as a RUM. The way it's created gives it some extra credit, I'm a sucker for a creative way of getting a complex taste together. The content is a full bottle of 5+5 and four samples, one each of the rum base, the Dos Cortados Sherry, the 5+3 and the Don Guido Pedro Ximenez(PX) Sherry. This rum is first aged in American oak barrels for five years and then transferred to Spanish oak barrels that have previously contained Pedro Ximénez wine for another five years. These cookies allow us to create statistical analyses to determine which articles are the most popular.This time, I’m going to talk about a rum brand who isn’t and rum brands in general who aren’t entirely transparent with the sweetening of their products. I myself rather enjoy sherry once in a blue moon (as well in cocktails) so I’ll probably pick up a bottle for the collection.
I’m just curious, you say that it tastes very much like sherry (something I know very little about), what brand of sherry would you recommend to someone who enjoys the Dos Maderas? You’re most likely familiar with the company through brands under them such as Alfonso brandy, Zafiro gin, and their various sherries. The Dos Maderas PX 5+5 rum is a high-quality alcoholic beverage made from a blend of rums from Barbados and Guyana.
I’ve been intrigued by this one given the novel ageing approach you described, but I’ve yet to taste it.
