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.
Tested this at a restaurant some times ago. Doorly’s XO is as all rum from R.L. Seale’s and The Foursquare distillery pricewhorty.
But I won’t let it in into my Bajan rum shelf where I already have the 12yo one, which I find even better.
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
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.
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.
