I’m missing more lasting flavour, and a bit more Caribian taste

Ikke så kraftig duft, men måske en snært af karamel og banan. Tør i smagen med et strejf af sødme fra sherryen. God varme med lidt finish af kokos. Selvom den er tør, er den ok. Produkt fra Foursquare, så det er uden sukker. Fin pris på 285. (4. December 2018 MacY)

Smagt igen i 2020: Beskrivelsen er den samme, men tørheden er simpelthen for gennemtrængende. Ændrer ikke på karakteren. Før var det 6 med pil op, nu er det 6 med pil ned. (2. December 2019 i MacY)

I am a big fan of Barbados rums and this one didn't let me down. Great quality at a great price.

One of my favourites, well balanced, rich, have those wooden hints that I love and no sugar bomb, and what is very important - really great price for its quality

My favorite from Doorly’s. This is better tasting than the 12 years in my opinion. A bit over the sweeter side with nice notes of caramel and brown sugar, that harsh alcohol note in the finish is more hidden in this one.

At less than $20 US and a colorful packaging to grab your attention, this may seem like a ploy. Well, an aged Bajan (let alone ANY) rum at this price point may be a trap, and perhaps it is, to lure you into the world of Foursquare’s storied sippers taking everyone by the gullet these days. Just maybe... we’ll have to let Richard himself answer that riddle.

This is quite close to what could be construed as an aged Spanish-style rum, with its flavor profile in the same oaky-caramel-vanilla range, but the finish is quite different. For the ABV and purported blending of aged (read: generally mellowed) rums, this packs some heat right at the end, and continues to a smoldering ember a minute later. That is not to suggest this is unpalatable - indeed, it’s all the hype you’ve read - to the crossover fans of whisky, scotch and bourbons, but it does not cloy or loiter like some of the DR and PR favorites do. Which, is precisely one of the things that makes them great mixers in my book, but that’s a whole other discussion, and perhaps defense.

Because I like to sip rum straight. And I like to mix and build cocktails, too. But what goes in must stand up on its own, and that’s generally what gets a mark in this range when tasting a spirit for the first time. NB: I’ve definitely tasted this before, at a rum fest in NYC, but I couldn’t have remembered much for the life of me after that.

This is a great gift for a friend who enjoys aged spirits or needs some rum in their cabinet, it’s a dry sipper straight up or on the rocks, a great mixer for cocktails requiring aged bajan rum and an excellent value. You shouldn’t be disappointed.

...i am personally not a fan of non sugared rum, yet this one has a pleasant and mild taste to it and then ends with a slight sharp burn.

The smell itself is not overwhelming but decent & elegant.

I expected a little more after reading multiple reviews, but still a good rum.

7,5 points.

This is a dry Sherry-casked rum that is at home straight in your glass or with ice. Not at all as sweet as rums from Guayana or Trinidad. Good balance.

I have XO and 12 and I can't decide which one is best... Great for sipping...
