Dos Maderas PX 5+5 Rum
Dos Maderas // Multiple Countries
This rum begins its life in both Barbados and Guyana, where it rests in American oak barrels for 5 years. It is later shipped to Spain where the rum is aged in ex-Palo Cortado sherry butts for 3 more years. Finally, the rum is then transferred to ex-Pedro Ximenez sherry butts for two years of aging.
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".
"The nose is fairly quiet but what exist is dark with a surprisingly vegetal edge to it. More specifically it exhibits cherry coke, cocoa, grilled peaches, herbs, broccoli stalks and Madeira wine. The palate is SUPER sweet and sticky with similar notes as the aroma in addition to black licorice, tobacco and maple syrup, though these notes took some time to come out. The finish is silky with a healthy amount of bitterness to it. This lingers on quite a while so an affinity for bitterness helps. While on its own overwhelming, there is likely a cocktail out there where this rum will be absolutely irreplaceable."
