RICH, RIPE, SMOOTH
Dos Maderas 5+5 PX begins its journey in the Caribbean, where we carry out a careful selection of rums from Guyana and Barbados. These certified rums, of the highest quality, are static aged for five years in casks that have previously been used to age Bourbon. The rum is then shipped to Bodegas Williams & Humbert in Jerez, where the second stage of ageing commences in our traditional Solera system.
The casks chosen to age Dos Maderas 5+5 are over 100 years old and have been used to age two oenological jewels of Williams & Humbert: Palo Cortado “Dos Cortados” and Pedro Ximénez “Don Guido”. Both Sherries are bottled after ageing in these old casks for a minimum of 20 Years and they are certified by the Sherry D.O. Palo Cortado is a dry Sherry, very aromatic and full of flavour. Pedro Ximénez (PX) is a very sweet, dark Sherry made from grapes that, once harvested, are left out in the Andalusian sunshine to become raisin. The period of ageing in ‘PX’ casks transforms the rum, giving it a darker colour and its very distinctive sweeter flavour.
We can therefore say that Dos Maderas 5+5 is a triple aged rum, in fact, it could be called 5+3+2 ! That is, 5 years of ageing in the Caribbean, 3 years in Palo Cortado sherry casks and 2 years in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks.
Dark amber in color, this intriguing rum offers fig and raisin notes at first, leading to rich, ripe fruit on the palate. This is seasoned by some tropical spice and wrapped in sherry notes, with wisps of smoky oak and a touch of tobacco leaf.
