Like its younger brother the 5+5, this flagship rum spent 10 years ageing in the Caribbean, before being shipped to Spain and maturing for another 5 years in a Solera system, made up from ex Pedro Ximenez casks. The original spirit comes from Guyana and Barbados.
A truly exquisite rum is born, just like "Dos Maderas 5+3" and "Dos Maderas 5+5 PX", it is handmade and aged previously in the Caribbean and then it is shipped to the Williams & Humbert facilities, where is it aged using the solera system. It is different from the other two of the range because it is left to age for 15 years: 10 years in the Caribbean and 5 in barrels that previously held wine at Don Guido. This rum is unique worldwide as it acquires tastes and nuances from the two ancient cultures that make it the "rum among all rums". That is why it is so popular among the most refined palates.
Dos Maderas Luxus rum is distinguished by its dark amber colour, with flecks of gold. The nose suggests very sweet, treacly, woody features. It has notes of almonds, white fruit and molasses. It tastes surprisingly sweet and has an appealing combination of alcohol with notes of wood and spices. Best served neat, or with a couple of ice cubes.
