Lovely younger brother of XO, 8y and other older rums of the Doorly's lineup. This one very accessible sipper in terms of inviting sweet profile (no sugar added). On the nose there is vanilla, oak, oranges, on the palate there is pleasant vanilla, fruity, almost honey-like sweetness, with light oak undertone and pleasant mild aftertaste of oak, tropical fruits, with touch of nuts. Surprisingly balanced and overall pleasant rum for its price and age.

Vôňa spočiatku alkoholová, po čase vanilka, chuť veľmi príjemná, hrejivá. Rum z Barbadosu, teda rum - žiadne aditíva, bez cukru. Môj prvý rum, ktorý mi veľmi zachutil a s ktorým budem porovnávať ďalej.

Light Bajan Rum and had a fresh un-open bottle which require some breathing. Pleasant creme brulee and toffee aroma. Nose finish with aroma of chocolate cookie and light woody-ness.
On nose, light caramel with good fresh fruits flavor such as plum. Minty and woody yet taste drier compare to nose.
It's dry yet fruity on the finishing with fresh berries (strawberry).

I'm a fan of a rum with character. This one has a light hue, no depth to it. The taste confirms this, I taste alcohol and very little else. Fans of gold rum should maybe disregard this review, everything about this is mild; look, smell, taste. its not a sipper, not pleasant on the palate imo, tolerable with a couple rocks. I usually mix my cheaper rums with a coke, it was an ok mix for the buzz, I guess.

Its cheap, i'm not disappointed, but I expected more from doorly's as I speak highly of their 12 year. Its ok.

seriously, no nose, no taste, no aftertaste. i was expecting something along the lines of typical bajan rum, such as plantation barbados 5, but this came nowhere near. I could only feel alcohol. very thing and a lot of burn.

no fruit, no coconut, no nothing. getting close to baccardi, which says a great deal

Bought this after trying at the distillery. Smooth finish but not the best for sipping, although the value for money is excellent. Perfect rum for corn and oil mix.

After first smell this Rum lets you to expect more. Unfortunately the taste is closer to flavoured vodka than rum. Drinkable with coke.

In aroma: candied fruit, woody, weak, a little fresh and mysterious. Burns the palate and the throat, sweetness, sharply in the throat, the tongue grows numb, woody, bitter, burning sensation definitely.Taste is severe.
In the aftertaste is a cream-brule, something confectionery, alcohol burns, the head is calm, but it's hot.

Dry, wth just a little sweet vanilla, oak, and enough of an alcohol afterburn to keep it from being great. But for $12 you get a very decent Seale rum, and that's better than anything else in this range.

Than a rum this age has any right to be.
