Doorly's 14 Year Old Rum (700ml)

$150. 00 Bottle
$1800.00 Dozen
ABV: 48%
Doorly's rums are made at the Foursquare Distillery, one of Barbados' oldest trading companies. Currently owned and operated by the 4th generation of the Seale family, Richard Seale remains the Master Distiller & blender. The distillery is situated in the south eastern quarter of the island in St. Phillip and built on the site of a former sugar factory dating back to the 1650s.

This blend of pot and column still rums was aged in ex-bourbon casks, with a smaller portion matured in ex-Madeira casks. While it's not quite cask strength, at 48% it definitely promises more oomph than the entry level Doorly’s. No sugar or other sweeteners are added, which will also please purists.

Other reviews... The mid palate shows more of the Madeira influence. Notes of red wine and blackberries mingle alongside dark chocolate and some faint notes of marmalade. Finish wise we are left with a spicy and slightly heated end to the rum – white pepper and lots of ginger and a trace of cinnamon. The finish is very long and the rum lingers for a long time in the mouth. Lots of barrel char like flavour. Further sips seem to temper the more bitter and woody notes. More fruitiness becomes apparent. Once the palate adjusts the rum has a much better balance than the initial sip might lead you to believe. The extra ABV means this is a rum worth sitting down and spending some time with. Doorly’s XO you can almost swig straight from the bottle – you don’t want to do that with this. Sit down with it and appreciate it in small sips... For most other producers this would be the jewel in the crown. There best efforts. for Foursquare it’s just another great rum....The only people who would be disappointed with this rum are the nuggets that think Bumbu or Plantation XO are great Barbados rums. 4 Stars - thefatrumpirate.com
