Nice, slightly aromatic fairly light sipping rum.

Light slightly yellow color, pretty, delicate nose...very delicate. Well balanced mouth feel, with a touch of sweetness and evolves into banana and spice. Long rich finish. This is a nice well made rum, which I could happily drink quite a lot of.

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.

La verdad no esperaba mucho de este ron, sin embargo es un gran ron pensando en la relación de precio va sabor. Tiene la escénica de Barbados, un no tan dulce, ron seco con notas a caramelo.

Nice bottle and beautiful amber color, this rum. This rum has very pastry aromas with almonds, vanilla and spices. It is very soft but the finish is not very long. Excellent value for money but it's not me.

Very pure Barbadian rum. No added sugar or anything artificial. Very subtle aromas. Dry and smooth, a little bit of vanilla and oak. Also very distinct notes from the Sherry/Madeira casks. Very good and a fantastic value for the money.

After drinking the Doorly's XO I thought I would give it a shot. The XO I would consider a budget rum, but hey the stuff is pretty dang tasty and a good bang for the money spent! The 12 year is a lot better and is notably smoother with lots of good tastes to slap upside your tongue. Slight burn at the finish and has a multitude of flavors as you sit back and say..... "Very Nice". Good price for a very good rum.

Seale's Real McCoy 12yo and Seale 10yo are better rums, in my opinion, because the flavors sing in delicious harmony. This one, on the other hand, doesn't quite pull it all together. The flavors lack balance, and the result is less rich, less complex. Acetone in the finish is disappointing. It's a very good rum, to be sure, but that's the point: Mr. Seale has spoiled me so much that I expect a masterpiece from him every time I try a bottle from his magnificent ouevre. The price of genius, I suppose...

Golden color. Nose of blonde sugar, vanilla and caramel. Strong taste (I had the version bottled at 43%), but not agressive. Completely dry but with a pleasant note of butterscotch throughout the taste. Fantastic value.

This rum is amazing when you factor in the cost! It's available locally at about $25 USD. I love Foursquare rums, however they can get to about $80-$120 USD. This rum is distilled at Foursquare which I think heavily impacts and benefits the flavor profile. This rum is from Barbados therefore does not have the extra sugars in it. It has a touch of Bourbon taste, but does not have much burn. This is a must for my shelf at home. Definitely go get it!
