Selección added to Ron Dos Maderas range

Bodegas Williams & Humbert's Ron Dos Maderas has redesigned its range and introduced a new rum, Selección.

Dos Maderas 5+3 takes its name from the fact that it first rests in its place of origin in the Caribbean for five years, in American oak casks, and is later transported to Bodegas Williams & Humbert in Jerez where it enters the following two-year phase of its ageing process, in casks that have previously been used to age the Dos Cortados sherry (Palo Cortado VOS 20yrs).

Dos Maderas 5+3 rum, once finished, enters a third two-year phase of ageing in casks that have previously aged Don Guido sherry (Pedro Ximénez VOS 20yrs) for 20 years, which is the origin to Dos Maderas 5+5 PX.

The top of the range Luxus is aged for 10 years in the Caribbean and then for a further five years at Bodegas Williams & Humbert in casks previously steeped in PX Don Guido.

Selección is the result of blending the rums that go to make up Dos Maderas 5+5 PX and Luxus.

In order to produce this rum, as its name indicates, a prior selection is made from the most select casks of Dos Maderas 5+5 PX and those rums, aged for 10 years in the Caribbean in old casks used to age Bourbon, which form the essence of Luxus. A combination of both provides us with Selección, our new rum.

This blend of 42% ABV is bottled, without being reduced, straight from the cask (cask-strength).

To coincide with the launching of the new rum, the Dos Maderas range consisting of Dos Maderas 5+3, Dos Maderas 5+5 PX and Luxus, presents a new design that makes clear reference to the double ageing of these rums in both the Caribbean and Jerez.
