Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Produced in Barbados by master distiller Richard Seale, the rums in Doorly XO have been aged a minimum of 6 years before finishing in Olorosco sherry casks. The second maturation in sherry casks is rare and gives Doorly XO its unique flavour.
Another fine rum from Barbados. This is a complex rum, full of flavor that is best sipped neat.
Ganska torr, fruktig med inslag av vanilj, lite kryddig. God
na doporuceni mika, prijemny a jemny rum, na kazdodenni piti
Tried this one during degustation of 5 different rums. It was a good relief from some sweeter pieces that we tried that night. Decent sipper for that price.
Skvela aroma, chut po vanilke. Flasa by si zasluzila lepsi design vzhladom k cene.
Color: light brown to gold, aroma: vanilla and sherry, taste: vanila and sherry, rather bitter but with good balance, not beter than 5-year Doorly's for me.
veldig god rom som jeg sipper og bruker til mixing. vanilla. etter å ha drukket å foretrukket søte rum har jeg fått opp øynene for rom uten tilsatt sukker, så etter å ha prøvd doorly leter jeg etter rom uten sukker.
rum uten sukker å tillsatt smak er mer inntresang.
Doorly's XO is a 6 year old blend of various Barbados rum and got a finish in Oloroso sherry casks that give a very nice twist on the drink. The light brown color thanks to the rum to his initial maturation was performed in ex-whiskey barrels, a process which has left its mark.
A rum with a light character and wonderful aromas and flavors of tropical fruits which are skilfully balanced by a variety of spices, light roasted notes and hints of spice. The whole ends in a warm, soft finish with tasty smoke flavors.
Doorly's XO is a rum with an unprecedented depth and a rum that is very late sip, very tasty and therefore highly recommended for rum lovers.
Was very interested in this one but was a bit of a letdown. Initial taste too bland and dry but the aftertaste is quite long sherrylike and spicy. I like a long aftertaste but this one is just not that balanced. There needs to be more then just aftertaste imo. Maybe it neefs a higher % to bring out the best. Still a nice rum, especially if you like dryer rums.
The color of the rum promises a lot, during the nosing I felt a little bit disappointed, then a pure rum taste with a hint of sherry and a little harsh in the throat.
A good sipping rum at a mixer rum price. Highly recommended.
Very smooth, easy to drink on a winters night. Drink Neat.
This is good stuff and is a great value at $17! It has flavors of cocoa, caramel and fruits. As well as a nice oakiness about it. This is great to sip on and would even be well mixed. I highly recommend.
The Storeman at the "local" listened to what I like and suggested a bottle of Doorly's XO.
Value for money the XO was worth it but would I buy it again as a sipping rum, I would not.
It did taste alright with a mixer however so not a total waste.
I did find some fresh frutty and vanilla notes in this rum. Still a good buy but need a ice cube to hide the alcohol strength. Not bad at all!
It´s really soft taste, but little thin and short. It´s OK but something missing.
Nez fruité, exotique et fruits sec.
Bouche sèche et douce petit retour de bois. On retrouve les fruits. Le goût de canne type sucre roux bonbon candy.
Le final est agréable et long. Le boisé sec est de retour un peu poivré.
Très bon rhum pour découvrir la Barbade et les rhums de type anglais.
Très bon rapport qualité prix. A avoir pour initier les amis
A nice, flavorful rum, but I think best mixed with a bit of seltzer & a slice of lime to smooth it out.
A must try .......................................
Un peu dur de goûter ce rhum après avoir découvert des bruts de futs d'une richesse aromatique pas vraiment comparable... Maintenant pour le prix ça reste un petit rhum sympa et sans artifices, bien équilibré et représentatif des rhums de la Barbade. Parfait pour découvrir.
Bananas everywhere in this rum...But yet!...It doesnt drown the other tastes. This rum is very distinctive. I enjoyed it a lot, but it got very repetitive in a while.
I tried a couple if glasses of this rum neat, smooth at first but then the heat hits you a few seconds later. I then tried with ice, but found the best taste with this rum was with a dash of lemonade and an ice cube, very nice and smooth
Little bit to strong in my opinion. Whit some drops of water opens the Rum up more and gives an rich flavour experience
Worst crap i ever tasted.
Litterally taste like paint remover or similar
I love rum from Barbados but this one was missing that extra caramel that Barbados rum have. I did find stronger vanilla in this one tho. Still a good buy but need a splash of water or one ice cube to hide the alcohol strength.
