Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Produced in Barbados by master distiller Richard Seale, the rums in Doorly XO have been aged a minimum of 6 years before finishing in Olorosco sherry casks. The second maturation in sherry casks is rare and gives Doorly XO its unique flavour.
This Rum was recommed to me in Total Wine by one the sales associate, so I had to buy it. For the same price I can get a much better rum, which meets my expectations as a premium rum.
Ok, here we go, this is a purty good rum for the buck spent. I actually enjoyed it neat but a splash of coke is a help. Give her a shot and you will be surprised...
Výborná chuť sherry a jemnost, veliké překvapení, můj oblíbenec
Lacking a tiny bit of sweetness and showing some alcohol hashness. There is oak and smoke present in the taste, as well as some dried fruit and coconut. Overall the taste is not pronounced enough.
Ultimately on taste alone, I rate it a seven but it's $15 or so a bottle....FIFTEEN measly dollars for something this good(!), I should give it a 9.
Tasting notes: Don't be a stiff, just buy some and enjoy what I wager is the best value in spirits, period. Could sell for 2-2.5x the price with a fancier bottle and publicity, easily. A modern classic.
Not a lot of rums that you can buy for this price and drink on the rocks. Good mixing rum also.
A nice rum on the rocks, Not the best rum in my cabinet, but a good drink on the rocks and an acceptable mixer.
This is very good rum - perhaps not top shelf, but I doubt you'll find better for 16 bucks anywhere. It's nice and dry, with a nutty, oak profile that is reminiscent of fine sherry. Really quite satisfying. They do rum right in Barbados.
This is one of those rums that could turn whiskey and bourbon drinkers over to rum. I find that to many whiskey drinkers don't explore rum because they think it is either to sweet or all tastes like Morgan and Bacardi gold. This one shows that even bargain rums can have depth and complexity.
Lite annorlunda smak, fruktig med lite dammig avslutning, fantastiskt i efterätter
This Rum was recommed by my local rum dealer, so I had to buy it. But it doesn't has a clear profile, it is rather harsh. For the same price I can get the XM 7yo, which meets my preferences much more.
Nice rum with a sweet delicate taste, but not overpowering on the sweetness. Nice oaky compoments too. Agree with other reviewers - good value for money!
The screw-cap is a turn off and when I filled my first glass I regarded the scent more neutral than rounded but after taking my first sip I was in love. This is the essence of Barbados rum. A great everyday sipper and superb mixing rum.
Very good tasting rum. At only 15 dollars is a must try. Good sipper
inadequate saturation for the icon XO, not worth the money, time - improved
Very good tasting rum. Not to sweet and nice color and aroma. At only 16 dollars a bottle this is a must try.
Nice dry sipper. Has a nice sherry after taste.
Medium complexity and burn.
Haven't tried it with coke yet, though I expected this would end up being a mixer.
Hele goede rum voor deze prijsklasse. (€25) Afkomstig van Barbados en 6 jaar houtgerijpt. Smaken van karamel hout en wat sherry. Ook nog super zacht. Gewoon top!
Ahh now for my everyday drinker. Great price good noise and just a good mild burn on your throat. Go for it you can't go wrong.
Another from nice, smooth, sweet sippers. Only in Czech is a bit overpriced (according information from others reviewers)
Doorley's XO has a beautiful comlex body that keeps on surprising you
Es un Ron Perfecto y lo mejor es su precio en USA $13
good gracious.....nab a bottle. $14.99 at your local Total Wine. i'm lucky to pass one on my commute so it's my friday pilgrimage. jeez, this stuff is the real thing. take Pyrat and its wonderful liqueur sense and bring back the essence of true dark rum...sort of a lighter, less sweet but much more intense and real Zaya. amazing stuff. i could go on. but i've had too much...cheers
