Rum is such an evocative spirit. It transforms, transcends and instantly transports the drinker to the sun-washed shores of the West Indies; white sands, palm trees and blue seas. It always has a sense of joviality, in part thanks to its Caribbean origins, and also because of the unabashed decadence surrounding a libation made from sugar.
The nose is fresh and perfumed with notes of oak and peels, a little syrup with a fennel note. The palate is sweet and rich with tropical fruits, peels and winter spice. The finish is gentle and luscious.
Rich and complex. Smooth notes of butterscotch and dried fruit melt away to a long, dry finish.
A bright golden color. Dos Maderas 5 + 3 yo is the combination of fruit and sweets. Especially vanilla in the mouth and creates the observed vanilla rum with lots of exotic fruits combine with the rum and a particularly intense fruitiness. Delicious
Vanilla, molasses, rich sticky dates and prunes, orange peel, allspice and clove.
On the nose it is very citrussy. So much orange peel. Icing sugar, waves of fruit. Perhaps a little cough sweet note too. On the palate it is sweet, viscous and more orange. With a marmalade hint.
