Strong and tastefull. Warm flavours and Strong smell.
Voňavý, doslazovaný s velkou voltáží, kterou umí skrýt, ovoce a čokoláda
Den är väldigt skarp pga 65%, men kanske är det därför smaken exploderar i munnen och sitter länge. Vanilj men besk eftersmak.
I find that this rum is all sugar and alcohol. Very little complexity in the tasting notes
Considering the price, ok stuff. The nose is potent with notes of cinnamon, orange, chocolate and coffee. The palette is powerfull with the same notes found in the nose alongside sweet, burnt molasse, and a hint of leathery wood. The afterburn is sweet, creamy and spicy. You get alot of the tres hombres: captains choice "expirence" for a fourth of the price. But ultimately to sweet for me.
The rum has a nice taste and a full body, but I feel that it is all attributed to the huge amount of sugar. Due to the sweetnes, the rum comes off as somewhat cheap (which it isn't) and generic. Thia makes it hard (for me) to distinguish any craftmanship, there is only sugar, and alcohol (with a strong burn!).
Nevertheless, if you like your rum sweet, it's a great choice. Although I also prefer a much lower alcohol percentage, I feel the two extremes complement each other nicely (but it is still very sweet).
All too strong. Ruins the taste. Some sweetness
10% lighter and it would have ben great.
Reading reviews I had built up in my mind how this might taste, and at the time when I started drinking Rum it was the best tasting (sweet) rum I'd tried. The bottle is boring and black with a white label. It is only 50cl.
The alcohol/sugar explodes in your mouth and the resultant aftermath tastes like I used to imagine a perfect sweet rum should taste. After a few months I could say maybe a little too much clove/five-spice.
There's also no depth, it's always wham, sweetness.
After a few months of drinking Velier, Foursquare and Agricoles I tried to go back to it. It wasn't enjoyable as a rum and it wasn't even worth keeping for cooking. Dumped down the sink.
Well, enough said, if you like sugarbombs, go for it, you won't be disappointed, it is heavily laden with sugar and caramel, some 80gpl of sugar here I guess. Smell and taste totally destroyed by sugar, it is like caramel pancake topping. For one fourth of the price I would buy it to put it on an ice cream. But for the price of Doorly 14y, OMG, I am so glad I did not buy the whole bottle and just a sample. If you like AH Riise - run to buy the bottle, otherwise avoid. Checking the empty glass, I could find traces of wood (otherwise hidden in the sugar/caramel orgy when you drink the thing), well, good, but at the least same intensity I can find in Don Q Anejo or Doorly 5y - there goes the "aged" rum - five year cask strength laden with sugar and what not, thank you very much.

the taste is very well, but it's too strong for me.
