Recommendable to most
and a pretty good sipper too. 6-12 yo blend finished in Oloroso Sherry barrels and not overdone. Other rums stay too long in sherry barrels and get too sweet imo. Works exceptionally well in combo rum drinks and I think adds a little something to other rums as well.
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.
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.
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 fantastic rum, made with great skill.It's not a syrup ladened foo foo rum. It's gets even better with a bit of oxidisation. Can punch you in the face when a new bottle is opened and isn't let to sit in the glass for about 10 mins. However when treated right it opens up to be multifaceted enjoyment juice. Everyone should have a bottle of Doorly's in the cabinet.
"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."
