Lovely stuff, when you open the bottle, you are treated to a beautiful aroma that can not be mistaken for anything else other than rum. very smooth with coke, lovely aftertaste that lingers in the mouth.
i will definitely be getting another bottle.
No, this isn't a multi-decade-aged and mature sipper - it's under $30 for a handle. But, considering its pricepoint, rum does not get any better in terms of value. Not quite a sipper (look to the XO, 8, or 12 year for taking Doorly's to the rocks) but the absolute standard for a bajan style mixing rum. Always have a handle or two stocked in my collection and always seem to be running out.
Just another solid, versatile rum from Foursquare. Come on... for $12 it can't be beat. Use it mainly for cocktails but have been known to sip it occasionally. Typical Foursquare profile nose and palate-wise. A must for any home bar.
N- Vanilla and honey with subtle pepper and mineral at the backdrop. All fine but remains basic and sugary at initial stage, but develop with layers of earthiness in the nuances of fresh leafs, sour milk and ashy smokes. Rum macerated berries, orange and jammy with molasses undertone. (86/20)
P- Lovely bright and full at low proof with zesty high notes remains there for a long time. Then some oak phenol lingers with toasted sugar bread. Not sure about any additive, probably it does at minimal dosage, but feel pure and clean. (87/21)
F- Medium, clean, pepper with coat of oak for boldness, smooth with hint of wax. (87/21)
Weighted Rate- 83pt

This is great basic rum that goes on some party with ice, and gets job done.
Definitly not a sipper that I would cherish moments on friday evenings, but still it is better than vodka and cheap whisky
I will definitly give it another shot on some occasion
It’ll definitely not disappoint when you need an aged Bajan on budget. It’ll gladly take a backseat beautifully if you’re making ‘gentle’ cocktails. Along with the Macaw It’s a pantry rum.
Sugar: 0-5 GPL. Aromas and tastes of vanilla, oak, a bit of caramel and spices. A bit of a burn on the palate but nothing to make you cringe. There is a sweetness in the rum and I know that R.L. Seale or Doorly's doesn't add anything to their rums so it's a pleasant surprise. Well balanced rum that you could sip if there was nothing else but I suggest a piece of ice. It mixes really well and is well priced.
Worth having in your bar.
Vôňa spočiatku alkoholová, po čase vanilka, chuť veľmi príjemná, hrejivá. Rum z Barbadosu, teda rum - žiadne aditíva, bez cukru. Môj prvý rum, ktorý mi veľmi zachutil a s ktorým budem porovnávať ďalej.
This is a simple mixing rum. There are no harsh, overpowering flavors. It's quite smooth considering its age, but, ultimately, it's too light-tasting & simple to be much of a sipper. Mixer only.
Ένα μπουκαλάκι το οποίο καθαρίσαμε "εν μία ριπή" μαζί με τον φίλο μου τον Μ.....ο στην συναυλία των Artic Monkeys !!!??!!! Ναι ..... δε ξέρω αν η γενικότερη ευφορία βοήθησε ώστε να απολαύσουμε στο μέγιστο αυτό το ρούμι ..... Σίγουρα όμως είναι ευκολόπιοτο, με ωραία αρώματα, μέτρια ένταση και επίγευση. Αν προσπαθήσω να το παρομοιάσω με κάποιο , τότε σίγουρα θα το παρομοίαζα με το Plantation 5 .... Καλή επιλογή στα 25€.
Nice mixing rum I personally prefer the plantation 5 but it's almost as nice. Barbados make good rum you cant get away from that
$22. for a 1.75L...haha its a total fricking steal! Much like you would expect from a younger Doorly's 8 or younger RL Seale's, it definitely has some of the same flavors while having more expected burn that isn't overkill. Drink it on the rocks and problem solved, takes the edge off and still has great flavora of vanilla, honey, banana, and sugar cane grass. Definitely bringing this to the family beach house this summer.
As with all of the Doorly's rums, this is very good. Essentially the difference between this and the 12 year old is that this is less complex and has less going on. It's still very good - especially for the price. It has a held back natural sweetness (no sugar, it's R L Seale!) and a little bit of fruitiness (not nearly so much as the 12 year old). There's a bit of oak too and not much burn - just a really nice glowing warmth. Strangely, I found that it had more on the nose thatn the 12 year old, but certainly less on the fade and tongue.
The only downside is that I'd marginally prefer a Havan Club Anejo Especial for just a little less and certainly a Chairman's Reserve for a fraction less - but that's no sin, they are great rums...and this is pretty good too.
Very mild rum with vanilla and banana flavours. Not easy to get in UK supermarkets so price point was mid range. Drinkable and good mixer, but to be honest I prefer more complexity.
Tried the Doorly's XO, 8y and 5y back-to-back and I have to say I went from bad to worse. The 5y has a very harsh alcohol smell, disappointing 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.
