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.
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
Really light body, but good taste with a light burn. Finishes with a lot of sherry notes.
Fine and not too expensive sherryish rum. I have read from somewhere that they don't put any additives to this rum, so it's quite dry. Many rums are very much sweetened. This is tasteful and nicely sherryish and nutty rum thing. There is sharpness, but there is also balance and quality. For the little money recommended, but don't pay too much. My advice.
This is currently on my bar counter and ready at any time. It is one of the Foursquare/Seale offerings which claim/promote rums with nothing but aging and blending to give the flavors. This one certainly hits the mark. I like it very much. And it’s a good price. I tried this one because I have been hearing a lot about additives (sugars and other spices and other ingredients). I don’t think I have a problem unless there is some misdirection or misrepresentation going on (like charging a premium price for a lesser aged rum). I’m glad I was doing the research or I might not have found/tried this rum.
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.
excellent love it, I can't believe that this Rum is available for
less then $20 it is a great Rum
This rum works well in cocktails or with coke. At this price it's worth owning to use in such drinks.
Rich, balanced, a perfect sipper for reasonable price. I very much reccomend this one!
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.
Good buy compared to the price. Must be one of the best rum in this priceclass
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.
I am not sure about this rum. For me, the aftertaste is too stingy and dominant and generally the flavor is not very complex. But I hear this rum has no (?) added sugar and other stuff. Still, I can not enjoy it as much as I would like to.
The Sherrry Finish adds an extra layer to this Bajan Style Rum.
A bargain mixer/sipper at £25
Wow. I had this down as a 7 based on my memories of it, but I have to up it to an 8. Seriously good rum, with a wonderful complexity underneath the somewhat closed nose and palate. The sherry ageing is really really well done, and not overly intrusive. While I love (even more than this XO) the Foursquare Port and Zinfandel finishes, the wood does impinge a bit.
Rich, velvety, wonderful bite from the alcohol rounded off with a dry finish that has great length. A stunning rum.
a good smooth sipping rum either on ice or with coke.
Profumo intenso, molto fine, complesso, e dannatamente buono!
Di frutta matura, spezie, caramello.
Non ci si stufa di stare col naso nel bicchiere!
La bocca non delude le aspettative, equilibrato.
Per chi cerca un rum fatto come si deve (non viene aggiunto nulla), classico, che non delude mai e con un buon rapporto qualità/prezzo.
Goes down well, good price.
