Recommendable to most
Au nez on est sur du fruit sec.En bouche il est plutôt doux et l'on retrouve dans un premier temps ses notes de fruits secs qui dérive peu à peu sur des notes boisé.Un rhum un peu trop doux à mon gout.
Quite smooth (as you'd expect from an aged rum), but a bit disappointing with regards to complexity of flavors.
The nose is also perhaps a bit underdeveloped for something with a "XO" label on it.
I like sipping some Doorly's as an everyday rum. It's a step up from Old Brigand for the Foursquare products. I like their Rum Sixty Six and R.L. Seale better. Doorly's can be found in NJ and DE. Unfortunately, Rum Sixty Six is found in Barbados and Europe... and my bottle is empty. I would recommend Doorly's to complement the others.
I love this rum and always have a bottle on the counter. Has a bit of a bourbon taste to it. Not very sweet. Dry taste but very smooth and long lasting.
Not sure where the previous reviewer paid $25-30 for this but I got two bottles at Total Wine in Florida for $15 each.
RL seales is known for advocating purity in rum and as such doesn't sweeten or doctor his rums in any way, so might not appeal to some who are used to sweetened rums such as Diplomatico, Zaya or Zacapa,, but this is rum as it should be.
"It’s nicely balanced and subtle on the nose. The rum is initially quite sweet with notes of toffee, banana, a little orange and citrusy lemon/lime. The finish is long and quite spicy with a hint of oak."
