et accessible...
assez doux et fruité, un basique pas si déplaisant mais je ne le reprendrai pas.

Another great tasting and great value rum , It seems to me that the rums from Barbados are very natural with no extra sugar , caramel etc added . Its got a bit of a Sherry flavour to it in my opinion , not a great sipper but a magnificent mixer with a slice of lime and an ice cube.

This rum works well in cocktails or with coke. At this price it's worth owning to use in such drinks.

First a disclaimer, I'm not a big fan of sherry aged rums, it's just not my palate. But I find them a reasonable competitor of other dark, sweet rums and I prefer the sherry style over the sweeter styles because a dryer spirit fits my palate. But this is a fine rum by Doorly's.

Bottle: I'm a bottle snob which is why I post bottle comments, I like the way some bottles look on the shelf. The art of appreciating something labeled "fine" is partly vanity act. I really like the Doorly's bottles, I just wish they were all synthetic cork style toppers, a screw top just doesn't do the end product justice.
Bottle Aroma: Sherry and oak are at the nose immediately, then the rum comes along for the ride.
Glass Aroma: Like a sherry, the spirit opens up and has a sherry dry but sweet nose, the rum pushing the smell out but is not that apparent.
Taste: Rum and sherry really are a great mix and Doorly's XO does not disappoint. It is on the tongue where the rum comes through and tells you this is indeed not a sherry spirit. The heat is low all the way through to the throat. The drink is quite pleasant and is another example of a rum that will convince non-rum fans that rum is a versatile spirit.

I weighted my opinion from 7 to 8 because I know that I'm not a sherry fan, but this is a damn good rum and I hate to weight it downwards with a 7.

I gave it a 7 only because my tongue is spoiled with the Ron Millonario15Y or Zacapas and El Dorados. Nevertheless it's a great ,tasty Barbados rum,typically very fruity and refreshing in the nose and on the palete. It's young age has the only downside, a little harsh afterburn. It's no matter to me but maybe to some other people. I 'd still recommend it, it´s very fairly priced and enjoyable,without making you poor

Another great example of why Rums produced by Foursquare Distillery are of a consistently high quality. Great flavour, great price, no added sugar.

What can I say? This is the most complex rum I have ever purchased. It is the smoothest rum I have ever consumed. I recently finished a $40 bottle of Angel's Envy bourbon and purchased this today. I'd almost classify it in the category of a whiskey. The opening, middle, and finish are adventurous, memorable, and downright delightful. I can't believe I only paid $15. I need to buy a case before they discover what they have and charge four times this amount.
