One of the most unique rums in the world, the Dos Maderas 5+3 Aged Rum Cask & Barrel is also simply one of the best rums in the world. Aged for 5 years in oak in the Caribbean, then aged for a final 3 years in Spanish Jerez Sherry casks, the Dos Maderas Aged Rum is a unique and complex made with a masterful combination of maturation. The Spanish Jerez Sherry Casks used to age the Dos Madera Rum have previously held Dos Cortados Sherry for a minimum of 20 years. This is the only rum in the world that is aged in Jerez Sherry casks and it’s noticeable. This is perhaps the most unique and complex rum we’ve ever tasted. Almost with the complexity of a whiskey, the genius of the Dos Maderas 5+3 is in its subtlety and balance. The rum qualities in this spirit are not over stated in the least bit.
Dos Maderas 5+3 Tasting Notes:
With a very light scent for a rum, tastes of oak, a complex and excellent finish, this is simply one of the best rums you will ever have. With a great thick mouth feel for a rum there are flavors of syrup, honey and oak. The Dos Maderas 5+3 comes with our highest recommendation. Retail price is about $35.
