Dos Maderas PX 5 5 rum is made from a combination of rums from Barbados and Guyana. It is unique because of its triple ageing process where for 5 initial years the rum is aged in the Caribbean in oak casks. 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.
The Dos Maderas family of rums are produced by Bodegas Williams & Humbert, which is a well known Spanish winery founded by Sir Alexander Williams in the late 1800s. The region of Spain where the winery is located has a climate perfectly suited for wine and is known as Europe’s wine cellar.
sweet on the palate and very smooth
The history of Bodegas Williams & Humbert goes back nearly 130 years. They participated in the creation of the Jerez-XÃ©rÃ¨s-Brandy Quality Demarcation and are now considered to be one of the worldâs most prestigious wine producers. Since then they have preserved part of the original wines and brandies (soleras) in high quality oak casks. These soleras are the base of the development and ageing of every sherry and brandy produced at Bodegas Williams & Humbert. But with such aromatic casks available they are ageing carefully selected traditional rums in their Solera Sherry casks, very much in the way that great Single Malts become interesting. Impressive!!
