Harsh for the throat. Little bit dissapointed. With some ice it is ok. Aftertaste is good.

Found this one on sale during a monthly special at total wine. Perhaps even more smooth than the 12-year-old, this XO is remarkable for its texture if just a bit shy on the extra flavor notes found in its older sibling.

This rum works well in cocktails or with coke. At this price it's worth owning to use in such drinks.

Not sure where the previous reviewer paid $25-30 for this but I got two bottles at Total Wine in Florida for $15 each.

RL seales is known for advocating purity in rum and as such doesn't sweeten or doctor his rums in any way, so might not appeal to some who are used to sweetened rums such as Diplomatico, Zaya or Zacapa,, but this is rum as it should be.

Doorly's is one of my favorites labels.
XO is excellent rum, no sugar and spices, with lots of flavours and long final.

If you want a mega sugar-dosed, diabeetus-inducing concoction like Bumbu or Diplomatico Réserva Exclusiva, this isn’t the rum you’re looking for. I’m not trying to bash on Bumbu or Diplomatico; if that’s your jam then have at it. Doorly’s/RL Seale/Foursquare/Real McCoy are true no-additive rums. There are toffee, banana, and sherry oak notes present. There’s also a bit of tobacco and black pepper.

So, this was nothing like I'd read. Not good for sipping, at all.

After I cracked it open, let my pour breath, I took my first few sips, and was greatly disappointed.

It was flat, with no real flavor. Not nearly as tasty as the others described.

For a sipping rum, to match the price, I'd rather go with El Dorado 12y or 15y, and to take it a step up, I'd go with Diplomatico reserve.

But not this rum, not for sipping. Its just ok for mixing.

Oak and sherry in the nose with a hint of toffee On the tongue it greets with caramel, transitions to sherryand ends with a smooth oak. Overall a great rum!

Primul rom Doorly s pe care il incerc cu sperante mari (fiind un Foursquare) ce n a dezamagit.

Sticla se prezinta ca orice rom de la forsquare, innobilat cu acea medalie cu sigla distileriei, iar pe sticla , papagalul reprezentativ pentru Doorly s.

Un rom parfumat , se simte usor cireasa si caramelul in miros si usor floral.

La degustare romul invaluie limba, alcoolul e consistent ( mi se pare perfect 43% alcool) deloc deranjant, mi se pare chiar perfect daca pastrezi un echilibru cu aromele cum reuseste binisor acest rom. Gust clasic de rom in care poti sa distingi clar caramelul si vanilia. se simte si un iz de invechit dar si un oarecare gust extras din butoiul patruns de cireasa oloroso.

Un Foursquare deci un rom cinstit fara zahar sau alte adaugiri nenaturale. daca e sa l compar cu Foursquare Premise se simte diferenta de maturare si faptul ca aromele nu sunt la fel de pronuntate.
Foursquare este mereu o buna alegere deci daca vrei sa simti un Foursquere dar sa nu dai o avere pe sticla si cu o disponibilitate buna poti merge cu incredere pe acest Doorly s.
