DESCRIPTION
  • Dos Maderas translates in Spanish to "Two Woods," reflecting the impressive maturation process that this premium Rum goes through. The 5 + 5 on the label refers to the time it spends in each wood - 5 years maturation in the Caribbean (coming originally from Barbados and Guyana), then transferred to Spain, where it sees 3 years ageing in ex Palo Cortado Sherry casks, and then a further 2 years in ex Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks, making a total of 10 years maturation.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Production: first resting for five years in the Caribbean, then for three more at the Williams & Humbert facilities in casks which have aged "Dos Cortados” (Palo Cortado). Once finished, the rum then undergoes a third stage of ageing in butts which have previously aged "Don Guido" sherry (Pedro Ximénez) for 20 years, thus giving origin to the extraordinary Dos Maderas PX rum. Both "Don Guido“ and "Dos Cortados" have been aged for 20 years as certified by the oldest Denomination of Origin in Spain: that of Jerez-Xérès-Sherry.

    TASTING NOTES

    The final stage of ageing in casks which have previously aged a Pedro Ximénez sherry such as "Don Guido" gives Dos Maderas PX rum a very dark amber colour and delicate hints of raisins, fig and vanilla which make it very appealing. A rum to be served neat, or on the rocks.
