If you know Foursquare, you know you won't find anything overly sweet in their portfolio. However, sometimes the dry oaky elements tend to negate the smoothness that should be a part of rums this age. However, Doorly's 14 is something completely different. It's one of the smoothest dry rums I have ever tried. If you don't like sweet rums, but you are intimidated by the harshness of some dry oaky rums, this one is deffinitely for you. You can even find some cocoa notes in there, which just underlines the whole profile. Amazing!

I finally managed to fetch myself this nice little treasure! Cost me a bit more (98 euros total pricing), but now that i am savoring the thing, it was actually well-worth it! The box is craftily designed and highly original. Color of the liquid is magnificent and eye-catching. The smell is deep, clean and subtle, not strong, but very pleasing nonetheless, refined and sophisticated. The texture feels extremely smooth, velvety, without harshness, despite the high alcohol percentage. It goes down merrily, simply feels great to drink! Warms your throat inside out and while exhaling, a unique feeling of euphoria overcomes you, momentarily dominating your senses! The lingering aftertaste is outstanding and remains for quite some time post your sip, filling your mouth with an unparalleled, blissful sensation! This is a real winner and absolutely fabulous! Highly recommended! Special thanks are in order, to the people who insisted for me to buy this one first, before the other rums in my list!!!

The bottle is very attractive, the saturated colors of the parrot motif invoke the atmosphere of tropical nature, Caribbean, warm weather and bright sun. The shape of the bottle is old-school, squat, curvy, topped with artificial cork embedded in plastic (no problem for me, there is not enough genuine cork for all the booze in the world).

The aroma originally is very muted, distant, dominated by a focused sweet note - candied apples, marmalade, canned pumpkin, after adding a bit of water (the rum is bottled at 48 percent), the aroma slowly unfolds with more acrid, acidic notes of soft wood.

On the palate, the entry is surprisingly, but delicately sweet (knowing Mr. Seale's production and attitude towards additives, I expect an austere, bone dry experience), but now, sweetness continues to develop along the toffee, milky, caramel lines towards a slightly bitter, woody finish, but much less bitter than one would expect after full 14 years of tropical aging. You will find no traces of those "teabags left in too long" ultra bitter tones of low quality rums, these are no tired casks with just bitter tannins left after years and years of abuse, but obviously an expertly selected vessels that imparted rather delicious gifts during their contact with the distillate.

The finish is warming, long, delicate, only slightly astringent and bitter, but almost feminine and soft in intensity.

Overall, this rum is a rather pleasant surprise, and after clicking between 9 and 10, back and forth, yes, I am giving it 10 finally - I usually give 10 only to rums that brings something original to the table, which IMO is not the case here, but this rum is exceptionally well-made, and I have to respect that.

Jolly well done!

Zajímavý chuťově i vůní. Nevím jak jej přesně charakterizovat, chutná mi docela dost, ale přece jen XO 40% je pro mne jemnější a chutnější. Snad se to obrátí a tento mi bude chutnat více.

Caribbean rum at its finest .RL seale you rock my world , a depth on the nose of oak and cask rum . Flavours on sipping starting with a light caramel then going to full oak caks taste ... If I could fill a bar with rum this certainly has to be there

The Doorly's 14 is a Barbados rum from the Foursquare Distillery, which was allowed to store in bourbon barrels for about 14 years and then gets its finish in Madeira barrels. It is a blend of column and pot style rums. Slightly diluted, it is bottled without dyes and sugar or filtration with 48% alcohol. The bottle is typical Foursquare and with the Doorly's label a bit more playful and cheerful.

On the nose, the rum shows strong caramel notes with a fruity touch. Vanilla and burnt wood are also there. Classic Foursquare but everything a little lighter and fresher than my ESC 2007. But also less complexity. On the palate, the rum has a lot of wood with caramel, some fruit and clear bourbon and roasted aromas. A spicy rum that goes into the finish with the intense wood note which remains present for a long time.

A great rum, which clearly surpasses the 12 years matured Doorly's, but at the same time still has a lot of air up to the ESC series from Foursquare. An own rum, which can convince. If you like a lot of barrel influence, this is the right place for you.

Der Doorly's 14 ist ein Barbados Rum aus der Foursquare Distillerie, welcher ca. 14 Jahre in Bourbon Fässern lagern durfte und dann in Madeira Fässern sein Finish bekommt. Es ist ein Blend aus Column und Pot Stil Rums. Leicht verdünnt wird er ohne Farbstoffe und Zucker oder Filtration mit 48% Alkohol abgefüllt. Die Flasche ist typisch Foursquare und mit dem Doorly's Label etwas verspielter und fröhlicher.

In der Nase zeigt der Rum kräftige Karamel Noten mit einem fruchtigen Beiklang. Auch Vanille und gebranntes Holz sind da. Klassisch Foursquare aber alles etwas leichter und frischer als bei meinem ESC 2007. Aber auch weniger Komplexität. Am Gaumen hat der Rum viel Holz mit Karamel, etwas Frucht sowie klare Bourbon und Röstaromen. Ein würziger Rum der mit der intensiven Holznote in das Finish geht welche lange präsent bleibt.

Ein toller Rum, welcher den 12 Jahre gereiften Doorly's deutlich übertrifft, gleichzeitig aber auch noch viel Luft bis zur ESC Serie von Foursquare hat. Ein eigener Rum, welcher überzeugen kann. Wer viel Fasseinfluss mag ist hier richtig.

Wow, nice foursquare Ron I like it so much. Even when it is stronger about alcohol, but it is not problem. Dry but smooth. I like it.

Superb - really enjoyed this, sadly finished too quickly and need to order some more. This was flavourful, aromatic, with a good long finish. Seriously nice.
