This is a Foursquare distillery bulk rum bottled at 40%. Basically I would call it a watered down ECS. It has similar notes but lacks the complexity and depth of its big brothers. I think for the mid $20 price it’s an ok rum but does not compare to a Eldorado 12, ESC, or Real McCoy 12 year. 6.5-7

Really easy to sip on all night without thinking. No real defining characteristics, buttery mouth, medium slightly spicy finish. Feels like it might be a great first ‘real’ rum for folks who live Capt. Morgan - they’ll say “it’s so smooth”.

As the bartender just told me “sometimes it’s nice not to have to think”

The brand Doorly’s was founded in 1908 by Martin Doorly & Company, but is since 1992 owned and some years later produced by Foursquare and Mr. Richard Seale.
The 12yo at 40% is a rather new bottling in Europe, and the 43% version is much more common.
It’s a single blended rum, a combination of column and pot still, of which 90% is aged in former Kentucky bourbon casks and 10% in former Madeira casks whereafter it’s blended and aged for some additional time before bottled.
The aromas is fruity and spicy with hints of vanilla, caramel and coconut.
In mouth and at palate is complex, round, spicy and sweet with tastes of banana, caramel, oak, tropical and dried fruits.
The medium long finish is round and tastes more or less as at the palate.
Overall a round and good everyday rum, but it doesn’t really reach the level of the 43% version.
Picture: My opened bottle with a poured glass together with the 5 & 8yo Doorly’s.

A slightly worse version of Doorly's 14, less refined taste. As always, a beautiful bottle.

This 12yr throws oaky woodyness up front with hints of vanilla, pot still funk, and a hint of spice. Not a bad mixer and could be enjoyed neat.

I like the stocky shape clear glass bottle with dark golden rum.f Full of flavours in the mouth and a little fire in the throat.

In the bottle from Total Wine. This is the 80 proof version. Pours dark gold. First aroma whiff was acetone, but as it breathes, I get more musty earthiness. Medium palate. Mild roasted flavor with a balanced sugar sweetness. Maple sugar finish. Quite good.

Doorlys 12 yo je směsí rumů zrajících 12 let v sudech po bourbonu a 12 let v sudech po madeiře (poměr 90% / 10%).

Rum nese název po Martinu Doorlym, který byl partnerem zakladatele FQ Richarda L. Seala a také na přelomu 19. a 20. století založil lahvovací továrnu pro FQ. Doorlys byl prvním rumem exportovaným z Barbadosu v lahvích.
Doorlys se stal součástí portfolia FQ v roce 1993.
Na etiketě by měl být vyobrazen v přírodě již vyhynulý Ara Spixův.

Aroma: Vanilka, mokré dřevo, starý nábytek, kokos, sušené ovoce.
Chuť: Vanilka, dřevíčko, bourbonovitost. Velmi jemná.
Dozvuk: Opět vanilka a příjemně doznívající bourbonovitost se dřevem.
Sladkost: 0/3
Celá lahev
Dopíjel jsem tuto "starou verzi" se 40% a i po letech je to stále pecka.

this is a fine rum and the price is right (right here that is).
Easy sipping and not too sweet or spicy.
An everyday drink.
