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.

Very similar to the 8 year, maintaining all of the caramel, vanilla, and stone fruit characteristics that make Bajan rum so delicious - with a slight oaky overtone and a hint of sherry sweetness poking through. Excellent as a mixer or on the rocks. I honestly prefer this over the 12 year as I feel it has a more robust profile that's not overpowered by a whiskey-like oakiness.

This rum does not provide a lot of complexity a very simple rum with flavors of vanilla and caramel. It is a very easy to drink rum which I really like.

A very nice rum for the price. Had it on the rocks with a lime. Has an almost sweet flavor, and her robust flavor.

Coming back from hiking Red Rock Canyon on the west side of Las Vegas, I stopped at Total Wine and picked up one bottle each of Doorly's 12 Year and Foursquare Spiced. A bit further east on Charleston, I told myself WTF and finally got to stop at Frankie's Tiki Room. I already knew that they had Doorly's XO in their list of about 200 rums, which was my goal. Wonderful place and I tried this rum neat with a glass of cold water on the side for adding a few drops.

It is smooth with very little burn. I never even noticed the sherry barrel aging, which is wisely kept subtle. Compared to the other two new rums that I tried, the Foursquare Spiced won hands down and the Doorly's 12 Year was a major disappointment. This was quite a shock to me, so don't rely too much on all of these reviews. It is all about what YOU like!

This rum is what I am looking for:
Not sweet, light, easy to drink, full of flavor and smooth.
The distillate reminds me of sugarcane juice, not molasses.
An excellent choice for any moment.
Highly recommended.

Quite nice english-style rum. Both okay for mixed drinks and sipping neat, but perfect.
Judging by its price - it has complex and rich taste. Hints of vanilla and cane sugar mollases follows the refreshing cinnamon trace. Aftertaste is oaky, with little alco afterburn

This is a solid rum and great for the price point but in my opinion, the 12 year blows it out of the water and is much more interesting. This is good though and worth trying.

Mezcla de rones máximo 6 o 7 años.

Fuertes notas de maderas nobles, frutos secos y algo tropical que no concibo bien.

Muy bien.

Rated this 8, factor in price should be 9. Wonderful sipping rum. For me aroma and flavor demonstrate the oak. Started as dried fruit/dried apricots, towards bottom of bottle seemed more like vanilla. No burn. I thought about mixing, but then it was so smooth and tasty didn't seem right. Next up is Doorly's 12!

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