Recommendable to most
Toto je rum, ktorý mám vždy doma. Chuti ľuďom ,ktorý majú radi isladsie rumy i rumarom , ktorí už prešli k nedosladzovanym. Pekná, príjemná chuť a v danej cene naozaj dobrá kúpa.
Orange peel, fresh bread and licorice on the nose.
Flavor is highly funky, with several tropical fruits lurking behind the esters.
For the price, this may be one of the best rums out there. For that reason I’m bumping up my initial thought (7) to an eight.
This is good stuff.
This is a good older brother of the 5y, the taste is more dry and has deeper woody tones. Wonderful on the nose, with vanilla, oak, and tropical fruits, on the palate there is vanilla, banana and citrus fruits, the aftertaste is pronounced compared to 5y, spicy with some oak. Good job this one.
I bought a bottle of the XO in Barbados, by mistake, thinking I had picked up a bottle of the 12 year old, which is an excellent tipple. I drink my rum neat and although the XO was extremely good value for money, I would prefer to pay a little more and get the 12 year old. The problem I then had was that the XO was far too good to use in cocktails or with a mixer.
Its been 2 1/2 weeks since I bought my first bottle of Doorly's XO from Total Wines. I spent $19.99 for a bottle of this quality Barbados rum. I really wanted to try the 12 year variety, but they were sold out so I decided to give this one a shot. The bottle had a nice, squat, round shape to it, and the label had a blue parrot on it. The bottle definitely had a quality look to it, and I could easily see it being displayed in anyone's liquor cabinet. The top was cherry wood colored with a synthetic cork stopper. It was a darker rum with great color, and I found that it poured easily from the bottle with no messy drips. So far I was impressed, and couldn't wait to try it. This was going to be my first sip of alcohol in four years.
It was strong! I wasn't sure if I could sip this and actually enjoy it. It took quite a few drinks to deaden the taste buds a bit to tolorate it. I made a few Pina Coladas with it, and they were absolutely fantastic! (Especially with soft crushed ice from Chic Fil-A.) You can buy bags of it for $1.29. Anyway, I did eventually start sipping this rum. I didn't find the initial flavor sweet, and the nose became a little more mellow. It had a rich and complex mouth with huge body. The finish was smooth and dry. In my opinion, this is an excellent bottle to try if you're new to rums. It will certainly give you a solid reference base to compare other rums to.
...And I’m hooked. Sweet without being cloying for no having added sugar. Def a staple to any rum fan.
Very drinkable. Very enjoyable. May raise this to an 8. Smooth, complex with Sherry, oak, smoke and a charred finish that is not long but very good. If I had never tried Worthy Park Sherry finish I would rate this higher. The Worthy Park has spoiled me for Sherry finished rums. Nonetheless this is easy to sip and and packs some punch. Better neat than on ice but tasty either way.
