It doesn’t get much better especially at less than $18 a bottle. It’s a bit smoother than the XO. Wish I lived closer to total wine.

Borderline 7/8. Excellent rum, but the XO is like three quid more and worth the extra. Overall delicious but a bit of a Havana Club 7 roughness.

Picked up several Foursquare Doorly’s today while picking up my Foursquare 2008 cask Xlll. The 8 year old surprised me lighter color than the extra aged variants but smooth for a sub $20 rum will be a great mixer yet just on the edge of what I can drink straight. Nice light spice flavor and lingering on pallets nicely. Moving on to XO & 12

Easy drinking. English style. But find it a little flat and dies not have a good finish. Will try to get 14yr old instead.

Na svoj vek veľmi zaujímavý rum, menej sladký. V jeho cenovej kategórii vyniká.

I like the XO of this series best, as the 8 yr adds a little too much barrel aroma and flavor for my palate; nonetheless, it is still a worthwhile addition to your bar for what it brings (Aged Bajan rum) at the price point ($20) for home and pro bartenders. This makes a superior cocktail and is no slouch in the snifter. One note that really stands out is an almost orange-like flavor that hits mid palate and fades slowly, making this an excellent accompaniment for drinks calling for citrus.

Got this on sale at Total Wine. Aroma is very good and enticing to drink it right away. But I found it better if I let it breathe for a minute or 2. It’s smoother and easier to sip. Definitely worth the price.

Da gibt`s nichts zu meckern. Sehr mild und geschmackvoll. Weicher Abgang. Guter Preis.

I tested this one side by side in Glencairn glasses neat against Doorly's XO and R.L. Seale 10 year. This one is certainly better than their 12 year because it spent 4 years less aging in oak. The annoying bitter after taste of their 12 year is just not here for their 8 year. As I have stated many times before, 8 years is optimum barrel aging for rums in the tropics. It is only slightly better than Doorly's XO for me.

Caramel, fruit, and brown sugar with a little warmth. The perfect balance between smoothness and depth of flavor. Exactly what a bajan rum should be. Always my go-to for spirit-forward rum drinks.
