Produced in Barbados by master distiller Richard Seale, the rums in Doorly XO have been aged a minimum of 6 years before finishing in Olorosco sherry casks. The second maturation in sherry casks is rare and gives Doorly XO its unique flavour.

Nothing very special or noteworthy here. Pretty standard rum fare with a nice dry light sweetness on the backend. Not a bad value for $33 US. It’s good for sipping if you aren’t looking for anything bold or unique and it ships work well in any rum cocktail that calls for an aged rum.
This rum is a great Bajan rum that has an added complexity from it's finishing in Sherry Olorosa casks. Its reat to enjoy neat but is a fantastic rum in cocktails or simple highballs such as a Dark n' Stormy or even rum & coke.
I actually intended to buy the 12Y, but this was mixed in on the shelf. Just my luck. That said it’s a pretty good rum. There’s a bit of heat throughout, but not overwhelming. Not complex, but the Sherry cask flavor is there. Overall pretty good for the price.
Its barbados rum, that's mean no sugar or chemical flavors. Just a little dry, all sweetness from spanish oloroso sherry cask. Very good for such price.
I was excited to give this reputable brand a try. I’m a bit choked that there is no age statement or even an age range, as my idea of this distillery was one of transparency. There’s absolutely no information on the bottle which is a shame.
Color is light amber and it smells of orange peels and raisins. It’s not as smooth as I would’ve guessed for 43% and the flavour isn’t terribly complex. Pretty strong oak flavour and good clean rum taste. There is no foreign taste, the kind you get with some not-so-good brands.
Overall, it's a solid clean rum though I wouldn't seek it out as anything more than that.
"It’s nicely balanced and subtle on the nose. The rum is initially quite sweet with notes of toffee, banana, a little orange and citrusy lemon/lime. The finish is long and quite spicy with a hint of oak."
