I recently tried Dos Maderas 5 3 at Craft Restaurant in Los Angeles. Truly enjoyable. Smooth, sweet, and nice lingering finish. I was hoping to have the same or better experience with the 5 5. Not so. Very bitter and harsh. I wish I could return it and get a refund.
Color - Dark amberBouquet - Rich with aromas of fig and raisin.Taste - Balanced palate accented with ripe fruit and tropical soice over a smoky oak and tobaccofinish, laved with hints of Sherry.
Wine Maker Notes
First aged in oak casks for five years in the Caribbean (Guyana & Barbados) and then sailed across to Spain for an additional three years of ageing in casks that once held the internationally acclaimed “Dos Cortados” 20-years-old Palo Cortado sherry. Dos Maderas Rum PX then undergoes a third andfinal aging step when the rum rests for two years in casks that previously held Don Guido, a 20 year aged Pedro Ximenez sherry.
Best savored neat or on the rocks. Pairs well with cigars and chocolate.
