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 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...
Velice pitelny, stale suchy, ale jemny. Mel by byt v baru.
This is not overly complex, but it delivers - especially at the price it sells for. The use of sherry casks gives more body to a fairly light rum spirit from Barbados's Foursquare distillery. Distinctively creamy, sherried and beautiful, with a naturally drying finish with some oak. Well done!
Whiskey-like nose. Oak from the barrels, vanilla, dark fruit. Very clean & dry on entry. A tad thin. Again, very whiskey-like. Caramel, vanilla, toffee initially. Banana, citrus & dark fruit mid to finish. Little to no sweetness... which I prefer. Only wish the finish was a little longer. A thicker mouthfeel and this moves to an 8. However, for $16.99 this still makes for a fine sipper.
As others have stated, a really good quality unsweetened honest Rum. Lots of great flavours and no harsh alcohol burn, there is an afterburn, but a very pleasant one.
Dalsi rum z Foursquare a znova zásah do plného. Nedosladzovany rum z Barbadosu 9+
Doesn’t really stand out. On the bitty shelf, but rum is alright.
Not heard of this, but it turned out to not be something rememberable.
A very good rum at a very good price. At around £15 cheaper than the 12 year old this makes it an excellent purchase.
The smooth molasses and the double finish give a gentle aroma to this typical Barbadian rum. Easy and ready to drink, is a very good suggest for a not to expensive experience.
5.5 on my scale. Bought for a friend. Tried it over ice. Decent with a bit of an afterburn. Better mixed
Fruchtig und mit der klarer barbados-typischer Vanille Note.
Niestety jestem trochę zawiedziony tym rumem . W smaku trochę cierpki, raczej nie dosładzany. Nie wyróżnia się niczym szczególnym, dobrze sprawdzi się jako mikser, jednak zważywszy na cene (115PLN) wychodzi średnio opłacalnie. Można pić solo , jednak smak nie porywa, mały plus za ładną butelke z papugą. Oceniłbym go jako przeciętny. W tej cenie można dostać coś lepszego np. Plantation. Jednak to moja subiektywna opinia gdyż wolę rumy lekko słodkawe niż cierpkie. 6/10
Zippy, tangy, and alcoholic on the nose, with an underlying mellowness.
As a sip, it's impeccably smooth, not too dry, definitely not too sweet, distinctly and classically rummy, with a sherry-like undercurrent to bounce off of. It absolutely pulls its own weight in a mixed drink, although it's not a hugely flavor-dense heavy hitter that can bring real character to a cocktail.
All in all, it's a well-executed, no-frills Barbados rum that, especially at the price point, makes an exceptionally reliable standby.
Smooth, clean and dry. As good as if not better than Doorly’s 12 ($26) and The Real McCoy ($46 in the US) which are also very good.
Best sipper I have enjoyed for under $30. That it is priced at under $20 is pretty amazing.
Not as clean and flavorful as the Seale Cask collection (like Premise which is outstanding) but a great sipper and the price point is awesome for a go to/Daily sipping rum.
Dobrý rum za ty peníze. Vyvážené sladký a koreneny. Ovoce....
I den här rommen är det mycket fat, gammalt tågvirke och skepp. Den andas historia och man åker flera hundra år bakåt i tiden. Inget extra socker i den utan helt naturlig. Ibland är den god ibland inte, mycket beror på vilket romhumör jag är på. Det känns som att det saknas nåt när jag dricker den. Smaken försvinner på nåt vis och den kan känns tunn i smaken. Men det är ingen äcklig rom. Bara.......svår.....ibland
Nasládlá chuť a příjemná vůně tohoto rumu mi vyhovuje.
Perfect taste, great flavour,nice colour. Absolutly satisfied. I can recommended
Good and tasty rum.....a little sweet and dry after a short while.
Taste is not long and I get some banana and vanilla and maybe a little sweet licorice.
Was a bit disappointed with this, not that it's a bad rum, but not for my palate. Found it a bit harsh and had a (for me) a whisky like back note (which was supported by being a favourite rum for visiting friends who like whisky). Overall once gone I won't be buying another one.
...product with for sure no sugar added, distilled by Foursquare. Hmm, did I ever have something bad from this distillery? Nope!
My least favourite aged rum from sherry casks so far, but still very drinkable.
very cherry plum flavours, not a lot of spicier notes... a bit of harsh burn to go with it.
