Reviews of purchase Williams & Humbert, "Dos Maderas PX", in tube, 0.7 L
Rum quite dark in color with hints of mahogany and copper reflections.
Bright, full, velvety, rich flavor of rum reveals hints of black cherry, cherries, raisins, cocoa, caramel and rice, which give way to soft, smooth, long finish with spicy orange nuances.
Filled, luxurious scent of rum abounds in shades of cherry and almond acquired through exposure to drink sherry casks. Trapped orange notes, shades of banana, vanilla, nutmeg and caramelized sugar.
Rohm excellent in cocktails, and as a digestive combined with ice cubes.
