Vedel som, že tento rum z Barbadosu je nedosladzovaný, pri prvom poháriku sa mi však zdal až príliš suchý. Pekná fľaša s papagájom a umelým korkom vyslovene povzbudzuje ju otvoriť, farba je skôr bledšia, čo zrejme súvisí s menšou mierou aditív. Vôňa je úplne úžasná, pestrá, okrem vanilky cítiť svieže tóny, žeby kvety? V tele dominuje dub, tipoval by som aj viac ako uvádzaných 5 rokov zrenia, drink mi trochu pripomína whisky. Rum je dosť ostrý, pichľavý, pozitívne vnímam výrazné zakončenie. Keďže preferujem mierne sladšie rumy, môj prvotný rating bol 5, celkový dojem som v počiatkoch upgradoval kúskom čokolády. Postupne však prichádzam na chuť suchším typom, takže aktuálne 7! Už len kvôli tej vôni, ktorá vôbec neznie umelo. Už teraz sa teším na odležanejšieho súrodenca.

U Doorly's je hodně za málo peněz ale za cenu dostanete skvělý míchaný rum, tedy 6 hvězdiček. Upřímný, neslazený Barbados.

Na fľaši ma upútal papagáj a preto si tento rum z Barbadosu budem pamätať. Je škoda, že nie je použitý korkový uzáver. Farba je zlatistá, vôňa dubovo drevitá. Chuť je výrazne dubová až po whisky. Rum je suchší a tak sa smelo hodí aj na celovečerné pitie. Záver trošku horký a pretrváva.
Rum stál cca 20€ a za tu cenu som pil rozhodne lepšie kúsky.

Nice Rum, a bit bland though, lacks any depth of flavour, but pleasant none the less. Better to spend the extra and get the XO if sipping neat.

I love Doorly’s and Four square but I can’t even mix this in cocktails. Go for the 12 year, the 8 is marginally better. Sorry I see hangovers coming from this one.

The nose is vanilla and oak, it smells really nice. It’s pretty smooth with a bit of bite at the back of the throat and mild burn. I think the flavour is nice, it tastes a bit of marmalade to me. Overall it’s just not very refined. I wouldn’t sip it, instead it works okay on cocktails but maybe not massively exciting.

Former bourbon drinker, switched to rum when I found Doorly's 5-year. This has become my house spirit. I most commonly drink it over crushed ice. I love substituting this rum for the Puerto Rican Gold rum called for in an original Zombie.

Though it is sold for $22(Texas) in a plastic 1.75L with a label that's usually damaged- I cannot recommend it enough.

I had been hesitant to try this version of Doorly's after being disappointed with too much oak in their 12 Year and not enough to shine in their 8 Year. Today, I found a BIG bottle of this for dirt cheap with the BIG macaw on the front. At the equivalent of $10 US per fifth, I could not go wrong. Well, as a mixer, this one is just fantastic for the money! You also might as well save yourself some money over the 8 year since I have them both ranked next to each other. Nothing offensive at all here, but absolutely nothing memorable as a sipper. No other budget mixer can compare with this real rum!!!! And as usual from Richard Seale, no added sugar!

Tonight's Rum: Dorly's Five Year Old from Barbados and I've even been to the distillery where this rum is made. The cork releases a mild Rum scent. Not overpowering at all. It has honey and orange to start, ending with a slight spice, perhaps allspice. When it hits your pallet, it's only slightly warm, still sweet like its bouquet. The taste is a bit dry and does maintain the orange essence along with a bit of apricot. On the back of the mouth, there's a slight heat that disappears slowly. A fruity taste is left behind. After a nice swallow, it's not the smoothest, not for a novice Rum drinker. A true Rummy would consider it fair, 6 out of 10. Neat, mixed with Coke or fruit juice, your choice is fine.
