DOS MADERAS (Two Woods)
Tasting Notes: Rich, ripe and Smooth!
Dark amber in color, this intriguing rum offers fig and raisin notes at first, leading to rich, ripe fruit on the palate. This is seasoned by some tropical spice and wrapped in sherry notes, with wisps of smoky oak and a touch of tobacco leaf.
The Dos Maderas journey begins with sugar cane, best grown in the tropical climates of Barbados and Guyana. Harvest is between February and June, when the plants are at their best. Each country ages the rum for 5 years, and then they are transported to Jerez, Spain.
These unique rums are aged using the region’s criadera and solera system. Through the use of this traditional ageing process, not only do the rums gain the flavors and complexity of Palo Cortado and Pedro Ximénez sherries, but are infused with the rich history of Jerez, and the knowledge passed down over generations of the Medina family.
This rum (in my humble opinion) is best appreciated neat, and is beautifully paired with cigars and chocolate.
