Dos Maderas 5+3
Williams & Humbert // Multiple Countries
The maturation process for this Caribbean rum begins in Barbados and Guyana, within oak casks of American oak. After five years, the rum is sent to Jerez de la Frontera where it is transferred to casks previously used to age 20 year sherry "Dos Cortados" and finished for an additional three years. Hence the name "5 + 3." This is bottled at 37.5% ABV.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
