Sherry, Sherry lady. Like there's no tomorrow.
Dos Maderas is produced by the Spanish winery Bodegas Williams & Humbert. It was founded in 1877 by Sir Alexander Williams, a sherry connoisseur, and Arthur Humbert, an international relations specialist. Located in the geographical triangle formed by the Spanish cities of Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa María and Sanlúcar de Barrameda, the winery enjoys a unique microclimate for wine production – which is especially important if you own Europe's largest wine cellar. Innovation in the last decade brought them to the production of Rum.
Dos Maderas PX 5YO + 5YO, a triple aged Rum, originates from aged Rum stocks of Barbados and Guyana. It is aged in three steps. First for 5 years in the Carribean in American oak casks, then 3 years in the Spanish facilities of Bodegas Williams & Humbert in their sherry casks which previously held "Dos Cortados" Palo Cortado Sherry. And finally, aged for another 2 years in casks used for the 20 year old "Don Guido" Pedro Ximénez Sherry. This is a very unique process for Rum production, which brings a new taste profile, a "Sherried Rum".
All this ageing brought Dos Maderas PX 5YO + 5 YO a Gold Award at the RumXP competition.
