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.
An excellent rum, Even though a bit pricey here in Scandinavia. Vanilla flavour from the casks, works very well as a sipper and in a drink.
I really like the Seale rums having tried Doorly’s 8 and RL Seale. I thought I’d try something new from Seale. I agree with many other reviewers that the sherry taste (with hints of black spice) takes away from a good aged rum. The price was excellent and if you like a quality slightly flavored rum, go for it.
This Rum I have had for a time and tested it together with friends this weekend. some of us think that it is a little bit swwet, but as always taste differs. I think it does a good job and gives you a lot of Rum delivers like vanilla, aftertaste and honey.
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.
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.
This 6/8yr rum is 43% ABV and you would never know it! Sweet/smooth with a hint of spice and wood. Good little rum and an even better price point.
"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."
