Recommendable to most
For the low price of only $24.99 (Total Wine & More), I didn't expect this rum to live up to it's rating (currently an 8.1). But it does.
Smells and tastes of caramel, a peppery spice, bourbon, and oak. I rate it a solid "8", which for the price is a bargain!
From all the good reviews I expected a little more if this rum. Very good rum don't get me wrong. Just would like a little bit more wow factor. I give this a step below the El Dorado 12 or RL Seale 10.
It's always out of stock within days of arriving, but the price for this delicious 12-year aged FourSquare rum can't be beaten. Similar flavors to the RL Seales 10 year and other Barbados styled rums. Well worth the purchase if you see one available.
Found this at Total Wine for under $25. Really great choice. Smooth, caramel, not too sweet. Not usually fond of Barbados rums, but this one is really exceptional.
I like this rum alot. It is smooth, while not overly oaky. Starts like other Doorly's offerings, aroma of vanilla, perhaps hint of stone fruit. Flavor is smooth, very little burn neat, similar to aroma vanilla, perhaps some caramel. Makes a good rum & coke, perhaps a bit too smooth for mixing. Usually I like the rum and coke with a more assertive rum. Doorly's is probably too cultured for that role.
Really well done.
It is not very easy to find.
I compared it side by side with the XO .... for me, the XO is smoother and the sherry notes make a difference.
Doorly´s XO is more pleasing to my taste, and cheaper.
There's a blend of spice, sweetness and cask in the aroma. The taste follows suite with a rich taste of caramel, spice and dry nutmeg, but finishes on a bitter dry whiskey note. Would be a pleasure for whiskey lovers.
