Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
There are a small number of rums that are so close in quality, that I find the only way to decide on which one to purchase, is which is on offer on the day. This is one of them. My overall favourite was El Dorado 12 year old, which is often criticised for being a little sweet. In many respects, I find Doorly”s 12 year old is similar, although not quite as sweet. It’s on offer today, so about to buy two bottles. All the other reviews will describe the taste, but just go out and buy a bottle. You won’t be disappointed.
As a bourbon drinker this one is pretty solid on flavor without much proof. Not overly sweet but a nice tropics fruit finish that lingers for a few seconds.
Nadpis byl jednoduchý. Takový prostě je. Když máte kvalitní produkt, nepotřebujete ho krýt cukrem. Oproti Doorlys XO má navíc k chuti dřeva také výraznou sherry složku. Je mnohem jemnější než stejně tak úžasný Dos Maderas PX 5+5. U Maderasu mám pocit, že se právě krylo cukrem, ale dávám oběma 9b a to jen proto, že může ještě někde čekat 10tka.
Pleasant but not too saturated aroma. Good fact is that - this Rum are “honest” to you, and I guess have no sugar add. When you taste it, you got little bit burn in your mouth, but not more than it need.
In my opinion this Doorlys 12y is not Rum with very deep and long taste, when I compared it with others. So that’s why I give only 7 this time.
But, I will buy it again for sure.
Приятный, но не слишком насыщенный запах.
Слегка жгучестей на язык, в этом даже есть свой плюс. Но в тоже время он не слишком резкий. Сбалансированный. Ром качественный, но благодаря моему опыту могу сказать что уступает многим ромам в «глубине» вкуса, если вы понимайте о чем я. Вкус хороший, но поверхностный. По этой причине 7
Приятное ощущение, что нету лишнего сахара в роме.
Barbados means good rum and you expect nothing less from foursquare. This 12 is fruity and delicious. Although I favour the el dorado 12 on the sip this is almost as nice
Good for an agricole (lol) - dry...aromatic...tastes like the Caribbean :)
Strong, not sweet, well balanced. A rum with an intense aroma and a piquant spiciness in the taste. Very full-bodied, little sweetness and a long finish. One of my favs!
Sweet oak char nose
Light banana, fruit on palate
Light fruit aftertaste
No ethanol bite
Sweet fruit aroma on spent glass
Very nice rum, oak char exists mixed with fruit
After reading all the ratings decided to go out and buy one. I agree with most, a beautiful rum. Just enough sweetness, bit dry and a delicious taste. Very curious about the other brands from Richard Seale. Going to be in my collection!!
This is one of my go to corn n' oil rums. Tastes like I remember the old school Dove Bars tasting, back before they made the chocolate shell all thin and crappy, but way rummier. Balanced vanilla and wood dominates the flavor for me and the aroma is like one of those super expensive shampoos that you get in overwater bungalows in Bora-Bora. Mix 2 ounces with a half ounce of John D Taylor Falernum, a couple of dashes of Angostura bitters and a squeeze of lime to taste. Put on a wide brimmed straw hat.
This make a decent benchmark rum for me because it is pretty near the middle in terms of sweetness-dryness, but high on oak. I'd say it was a fraction over the line towards dryness, but not by much - you get some sweetness in the dried fruit to balance this out. There's also a hint of bourbon and sherry from the casks that are used - you can taste both which is a nice balancing between sweet and dry, with dry just winning.
There not that much on the nose - oak and molasses, but the aftertaste is long and rich and a little bit leathery.
I'll happily drink this but I can't love it the way I do a good Eldorado - it's not just that that isn't as sweet, but also that it isn't as rich and complex. But I do prefer this to the XO - it is smoother and more refined.
Amber, almond, affection. No need to travel to Barbados. I’m holding it in my glass.
I had higher hopes for this one based on the reviews, but frankly it left me a little dissappointed.
The nose was pretty mellow, some tobacco and bannanna. Flavor was not as smooth as I had hoped for, oak amd bananna with an ever hint of spice and a really weak finish.
I will give it another shot, but for now i cant rate this terribly high. Just no body and a weak finish for me.
Thanks to RL Seale and Foursquare for a broad range of excellent rums! More mature than the 8-year with deep rich flavor. I prefer rums bordering on single malt scotch undertones. This hits the spot, especially at this price, but I think I will stay with the “8” instead. Thanks also to Total Wine for their broad selection of rums, it is like going to a candy store for adults.
Da, o surpiza placuta, nu aveam mari asteptari de la acest rom relativ ieftin.. Suficient de fin, nu foarte dulce si cu arome subtile.
Classy bottle, lovely mahogany colour, crisp, naturally sweet, nothing added, slight banana, vanilla & oak.
No question of mixing this one, enjoy it as it’s meant to be
Having just finished this bottle I have to raise this to a 8, 8.5 if I could.
It just gets better in every way.
Rum as it's meant to be from Foursquare.
One of the nicest i've drunk in this price catagory. Sweet, nice scent. Vanilla flavor.
En romig rom. Inte översöt. Kanske lite tunnare i smaken än t ex zinfandel men bättre än mount gay xo
I love this rum - so smooth, so rich, without any sugar.
Not bad at all and relatively smooth but lacks a certain depth...I couldn't discern any stand out flavour either but that could be me...
Good rum. Dryer than some of the more popular ones like Zacapa, Diplomatico and Zaya but very good.
40% ABV. Too low, but hey, it's a budget brand.
Very delicate nose. Kinda Plantation-y. Hint of caramel and sherry. Reminds me a little of Foursquare Port Cask Finish. Sherry finish comes through on the finish.
I don't love it, but it's not bad. Definitely should be stronger.
Honiggelbes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase, ahh.. Barbados, herrlicher Duft nach tropischen Früchten, zarter Vanille und leichtem Karamell.
Im Gaumen ergiessen sich die Aromen geschmeidig über die Zunge, helle reife Früchte, heller Tabak, helle Vanille, helles Karamell, einfach nur lecker.
Im Abgang schwingt das Ganze aber nur sehr kurz mit.
Ein ehrlicher Rum für Einsteiger und Geniesser.
Honey yellow amber in the glass.
In the nose, ahh .. Barbados, wonderful scent of tropical fruits, delicate vanilla and light caramel.
On the palate, the flavors pour smoothly over the tongue, bright ripe fruit, light tobacco, light vanilla, light caramel, just delicious.
In the finish, the aromas swinging very briefly with.
An honest rum for beginners and connoisseurs.
