Da, o surpiza placuta, nu aveam mari asteptari de la acest rom relativ ieftin.. Suficient de fin, nu foarte dulce si cu arome subtile.
Classy bottle, lovely mahogany colour, crisp, naturally sweet, nothing added, slight banana, vanilla & oak.
No question of mixing this one, enjoy it as it’s meant to be
Having just finished this bottle I have to raise this to a 8, 8.5 if I could.
It just gets better in every way.
Rum as it's meant to be from Foursquare.
One of the nicest i've drunk in this price catagory. Sweet, nice scent. Vanilla flavor.
En romig rom. Inte översöt. Kanske lite tunnare i smaken än t ex zinfandel men bättre än mount gay xo
I love this rum - so smooth, so rich, without any sugar.
Not bad at all and relatively smooth but lacks a certain depth...I couldn't discern any stand out flavour either but that could be me...
Good rum. Dryer than some of the more popular ones like Zacapa, Diplomatico and Zaya but very good.
40% ABV. Too low, but hey, it's a budget brand.
Very delicate nose. Kinda Plantation-y. Hint of caramel and sherry. Reminds me a little of Foursquare Port Cask Finish. Sherry finish comes through on the finish.
I don't love it, but it's not bad. Definitely should be stronger.
Honiggelbes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase, ahh.. Barbados, herrlicher Duft nach tropischen Früchten, zarter Vanille und leichtem Karamell.
Im Gaumen ergiessen sich die Aromen geschmeidig über die Zunge, helle reife Früchte, heller Tabak, helle Vanille, helles Karamell, einfach nur lecker.
Im Abgang schwingt das Ganze aber nur sehr kurz mit.
Ein ehrlicher Rum für Einsteiger und Geniesser.
Honey yellow amber in the glass.
In the nose, ahh .. Barbados, wonderful scent of tropical fruits, delicate vanilla and light caramel.
On the palate, the flavors pour smoothly over the tongue, bright ripe fruit, light tobacco, light vanilla, light caramel, just delicious.
In the finish, the aromas swinging very briefly with.
An honest rum for beginners and connoisseurs.
Jsou-li vám sympatičtí jeho tři souputníci z barbadoského království zvaného Foursquare Rum Distillery (RM 12y, Port, Zinfandel), pak nemáte vůbec co řešit, jelikož výrobní poctivost a maximální kvalita stojí přímo v jejich „královském“ erbu :-). Projevuje se v decentní vůni, elegantním těle i sušším závěru s jemnými náznaky přítomné vanilky, banánů či ovoce. Výsledek dle mého názoru potěší i s rumem experimentující whisky-fanoušky. Férová cena (v ČR od 800 Kč, v USA dokonce od 25 USD) pak odkazuje i na obchodní poctivost, nikoliv průměrnou kvalitu rumu…Závěrem ještě doplním, že nevhodnost „modrého papouška„ pro těhotné ženy, lze rozšířit i na nezkušené nováčky a příznivce pouze doslazovaných rumů :-)
I enjoyed it, but wouldn't order it again since it didn't really have anything that really appealed to me.
After sipping some XO and 8yr old, I was a bit unimpressed - though they weren't bad rums for the price. However, they just lacked something. My guess is that a higher ABV the nice flavours would be more bold and enjoyable. So I was hesitant to purchase the 12 yr. Though it is not bottled at a higher proof, for some reason the delicious flavours just stand out so much more. It SEEMS as if it's stronger. I'm not ready to dissect all the component flavours, just state that they work very well together.
I considered giving this an 8, but looking at others that I’ve given an 8, it falls a little short. It’s a very smooth rum with a good balance. It’s dry but not too dry. Unless you like VERY sweet rums, you’ll like this one. I couldn’t give it an 8 because it lacks character and depth. Others seem to disagree, so perhaps I need to try another bottle. The only distinctive flavor or smell is the oak, which is pleasant and not overpowering. I could drink Doorly’s 12 year-old as a sipper but it just isn’t distinctive enough to love. But, if I had $25 and needed an excellent bottle of rum, I think this just beat out Bacardi 8 as my first choice.
Hard to fault this bajan rum but for a 40% bottling. Would definitely add a star if it had a bit more heat. That said if it’s an easy sipper you seek the Doorly’s 12 is a great choice and priced right.
On the dry side but not an oak bomb. Nice balance.
Décidement Foursquare ne me décoit toujours pas avec ce que je qualifierait simplement de "très bon rhum pour faire gouter du rhum à ceux qui ne connaissent pas le rhum". Pas "original", simplement une excellente limonade !
Maybe it is too soon to review, but this was no special experience for me. Next week I won't even remeber that I had it.
dal bych sedm a pul ideálně. ale na sedmičku to úplně není. velmi dobrý rum z barbadosu. proto jsem ho také vyzkoušel. chutí jemný, s výraznějším řízem. lehce ostřejší v dojezdu, ale velmi jemnounce, takže se z tohoto rumu stáva velmi pitelná láhev.
This is decent tasting for the price. Not very sweet but not super dry either, goes down well, its drinkable, the only negative for me is in the finish as you can taste a little of that rubbing alcohol note, Doorlys XO is better in my opinion.
This is an exceptional rum. It is complex but not overpowering. Every time you sip it you'll find something new. It's rare for a rum to pull off a really well executed dryness but this does it. Two tiny comments, firstly, probably wouldn't start someone new to rum on this, they won't like it, unless they're a whisky person it will put them off. Secondly, needs a cork not a screw cap. Otherwise, always have a bottle in your cabinet, it's great to cross compare with.
... or caramel essence without the caramel flavor. It's hard to describe, but that's the feeling I got. This is a naturally sweet rum. Simple oak. Burnt sugar. The finish leaves the wood on the mouth. Nice! Didn't expect this from a Doorly's, which I's often thought were rather plain.
Doorly's has garnered quite a cult following on some of the rum channels. I have only tried the 12 year old Doorly's, and I was very disappointed on it. Harsh alcohol smell, mish-mash of flavors on the tongue and a nasty burn to finish the experience. There are literally hundreds of much better aged rums in this price range, so don't waste your money on a Doorly's.
As a huge fan of Foursquare, I had to try the Doorly's line and thought i would start with their aged sipper. I am not disappointed. The taste is drier than the sweet nose would imply. Lots of rich flavors combine in as smooth a sipper as they come.
Paid $24.99 at Total Wine. Was recommended by many on this site, so I figured I would give it a chance. I was surprised to find that the bottle was a twist cap. Aroma is good but with a stronger alcohol edge. Initial taste is smooth, but has a slightly harsher finish than I'd like. Adding a splash of water really changes the finish. Overall not bad for the price, but not one of my top 5.
