Dos Maderas 5+5 PX


This wonderful elixir begins as rums aged for 5 years in, and from, Barbados and Guyana. The rums then move to Jerez, Spain for a ‘secondary’ aging in Sherry barrels; first for 3 years in "Dos Cortados" Palo Cortado sherry then followed by 2 more years in "Don Guido" Pedro Ximénez sherry (PX). The final results are beguiling. Intricate aromas filled with molasses, baking spice, caramel, roasted nuts, tea, sherry and Jamaican Bread Pudding. The flavors show ebullient caramelized honey, raisins and mission figs evolving to a fervor that display recherché nuances of cocoa, tea and vanilla. The finish lingers sumptuously rewarding you with an aftertaste of Custard Bread Pudding and an invitation for more. Try this neat and allow time to enjoy it.
