Recommendable to most
Sugar: 0-5 GPL. There is no added sugar in most if not all Bajan rums and any sweetness occurs naturally. This one is no exception. This is a very good Bajan rum and I tasted butterscotch, oak, a trace of chocolate and fruits, perhaps coconut and banana. The strongest taste was the butterscotch and oak. Overall it's very dry and the tastes fade with the burn of a pure rum. I added a drop of water to open it up and take the edge off the burn. Mix or sip depending on your tastes.
You really need to rest this one (20 minutes should do the trick), before you drink it. At first it has that strong alcohol smell and even aftertaste. But after you relax it, it is a very very smooth rum. Great if you are planning to have few glasses, because it is incredibly easy to drink. Just dont expect that taste punch. It will never come. It is a decent rum, but its main advantage is just how easy you can drink it. No obstructions on its way. Just let it rest after you pour it.
The pot still brings complexity, depth and weight, whilst the column still brings a balance of aroma and flavour. Doorly’s 12 Year Old Rum is a blend of rums, 90% aged for 12 years in Kentucky Bourbon and 10% aged for 12 years in Madeira cask. This rum is an exceptional molasses sipping rum for slightly less cost than the Four Square 2005 variety. Both deserve a taste.
secondary aging in oak sherry casks. Very smooth, pleasant aroma, medium complexity. Mildly sweet, not dry, you can taste the sugars, and the sherry cask comes through in good balance. Very scotch-like. 85+
I picked up a bottle of this on the recommendation of a co-worker. Coming from bourbon country, I really enjoy the of Doorly’s 12, with the barrels and smoke coming though just enough in a balanced profile to make me think this is the missing link between rum and bourbon.
