Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
For the low price of only $24.99 (Total Wine & More), I didn't expect this rum to live up to it's rating (currently an 8.1). But it does.
Smells and tastes of caramel, a peppery spice, bourbon, and oak. I rate it a solid "8", which for the price is a bargain!
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.
I enjoyed it, but wouldn't order it again since it didn't really have anything that really appealed to me.
After sipping some XO and 8yr old, I was a bit unimpressed - though they weren't bad rums for the price. However, they just lacked something. My guess is that a higher ABV the nice flavours would be more bold and enjoyable. So I was hesitant to purchase the 12 yr. Though it is not bottled at a higher proof, for some reason the delicious flavours just stand out so much more. It SEEMS as if it's stronger. I'm not ready to dissect all the component flavours, just state that they work very well together.
Hard to fault this bajan rum but for a 40% bottling. Would definitely add a star if it had a bit more heat. That said if it’s an easy sipper you seek the Doorly’s 12 is a great choice and priced right.
On the dry side but not an oak bomb. Nice balance.
Décidement Foursquare ne me décoit toujours pas avec ce que je qualifierait simplement de "très bon rhum pour faire gouter du rhum à ceux qui ne connaissent pas le rhum". Pas "original", simplement une excellente limonade !
dal bych sedm a pul ideálně. ale na sedmičku to úplně není. velmi dobrý rum z barbadosu. proto jsem ho také vyzkoušel. chutí jemný, s výraznějším řízem. lehce ostřejší v dojezdu, ale velmi jemnounce, takže se z tohoto rumu stáva velmi pitelná láhev.
This is an exceptional rum. It is complex but not overpowering. Every time you sip it you'll find something new. It's rare for a rum to pull off a really well executed dryness but this does it. Two tiny comments, firstly, probably wouldn't start someone new to rum on this, they won't like it, unless they're a whisky person it will put them off. Secondly, needs a cork not a screw cap. Otherwise, always have a bottle in your cabinet, it's great to cross compare with.
... or caramel essence without the caramel flavor. It's hard to describe, but that's the feeling I got. This is a naturally sweet rum. Simple oak. Burnt sugar. The finish leaves the wood on the mouth. Nice! Didn't expect this from a Doorly's, which I's often thought were rather plain.
Doorly's has garnered quite a cult following on some of the rum channels. I have only tried the 12 year old Doorly's, and I was very disappointed on it. Harsh alcohol smell, mish-mash of flavors on the tongue and a nasty burn to finish the experience. There are literally hundreds of much better aged rums in this price range, so don't waste your money on a Doorly's.
Paid $24.99 at Total Wine. Was recommended by many on this site, so I figured I would give it a chance. I was surprised to find that the bottle was a twist cap. Aroma is good but with a stronger alcohol edge. Initial taste is smooth, but has a slightly harsher finish than I'd like. Adding a splash of water really changes the finish. Overall not bad for the price, but not one of my top 5.
For me taste was to much sharp. Its less sweet, more raw. In this price category is much better buy abuelo or pyrat.
Geschmack zu oberflächlich, Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis stimmt nicht wirklich
one of the best 12YO aged rum, no sugar added, very nice aftertaste. very smooth. balanced
I love a good aroma, and this aroma never get old, from the first, to the last glass. Its truly smooth to drink. I love it, I'm not bombarded with flavors and they compliment each other well. For the price, this is my daily.
The 12 year Doorly's is smooth and tastes great, but I don't feel like it's that complex. It's is definitely worth buying. This is a great price point and value.
A pleasant aftertaste, particularly for the price point. A definite oaky flavor.
Amazing flavour this is beyond belief .. decent barbarian rum
Only had one try of this, too much of a burn and not much else. When you compare it to MGXO, Appleton 12, Seales 10 or Flor de Cana 12, it doesn't come close on first impression. I wouldn't buy a bottle, try a sample bottle first.
The Doorly's 12 years shows us a beautiful light brown/golden color presented in a nice bottle.
Once in mounth, you discover mainly pastry aromas and vanilla.
Not really in my range of rum.
