Proof66 Notes

Doorly's XO rum is a blend of aged rums between 6 and 12 years with a finish in Spanish Oloroso sherry casks (a practice more commonly known in scotch aging). The rum is produced in Barbados and imported by RL Seale of Florida.

Foursquare Distillery is a former sugar factory in Barbados purchased by rum bottler Richard Seale and implemented fermentation equipment.

My favourite mixing rum; gives the sensation of a world class aged spirit without the $$. Superb on the rocks or neat as an after-dinner savor. Beautifully finished with a great balance between wood and fruit. One of my favourites.

Doorly's XO comes in a fairly unassuming, uneventful bottle that provides some info to the spirit's production. I was reluctant to try this one, even with a recommend, in large part due to its price. However, upon giving it a shot, this rum impresses. The people behind Doorly's also run Foursquare Distillery, which is a very solid start to say the least. Having had my fair share of Foursquare Spiced Rum, Doorly's XO is essentially a slightly more mature version of that spirit in terms of taste and the experience, though the latter is aged and the former is not. Where Foursquare is a touch watery in texture and delicate in flavor, Doorly's is a bit more robust and colorful. There is sweet molasses and a hint of maple in the flavor, and general smoothness abounds without notable burn. This is quality rum that works perfectly as a sipping spirit, and will make many a colorful cocktail or tasty rum-based confectionary recipe. No question this one beats the big brands on their own tu
