...And I’m hooked. Sweet without being cloying for no having added sugar. Def a staple to any rum fan.

Toto je pro můj favorit. Barbados jako ostrov mám spjatý s rumem a tento je opravdu pro mne výjimečný. Dostal jsem jej jako dárek za moje fotky a jeho chuť mne opravdu nadchla. Je drsný a přitom zázračně jemný. Dlouhý dozvuk chutě sudu je nádherný a láká k opakovanému pití.

Similar in taste to Santa Teresea 1796, very smooth with an oakey finish, beautiful for the price range

This rum is what I am looking for:
Not sweet, light, easy to drink, full of flavor and smooth.
The distillate reminds me of sugarcane juice, not molasses.
An excellent choice for any moment.
Highly recommended.

I'm a sucker for Barbados rum. I am an even BIGGER sucker for tasty Barbados rum.

Doorly's XO is exactly that. Glad I finally got a bottle.

Another product from the folks at R.L. Seale & Company so you know you are getting some of the finest in quality when it comes to rum. No additives. No sugars.

This rum is a blend of older rums and then matured in Spanish Oloroso sherry casks (or barrels?)

The color is a rich, deep amber and the aroma is delightful. As usual I am unable to determine specific subtleties in the aroma but can only tell you that it smells great. No astringency.

The flavor is fantastic. An initial sweetness indicating molasses and a nice vanilla/toffee undertone which then is joined in by that oak mentioned early.

Here's where is gets interesting for me. With many rums aged in oak a noticeable bitterness from the oak tannins is present and often tends to overtake the flavor.

HOWEVER with this rum, the oak flavor joins and blends with the initial flavors and never actually overwhelms. It is noticeable but is beautifully balanced. It rapidly fades revealing a delicious finish consisting mostly of the natural molasses.

This is a rum that could be considered a sipping rum by many. Some would disagree. It makes an out-freakin'-standing mixing rum no matter how you cut it...or mix it. I cannot think of any beverage that would not benefit from Doorly's XO.

Now one would think that for such a fine rum a bottle would cost $45-$50 USD?

How about $17 USD?


This is one of those rums that you get the most bang for your buck. The flavor is worthy of a $50 price tag but R.L. Seale and Company chose to charge much less.

That alone is worth a couple of ratings points from me.

I continue to grow more and more impressed with R.L. Seale & Company.

This is a great rum.

A rum as rum should be, no added sugars, pure taste and for that price you can’t get disappointed

In my opinion, Doorly's XO is among the best values for the right amount of money. No artificial things were added, just Barbadian love.
