Produced by the rum trading company R.L. Seale & Company, Doorlys rums express all the exoticism of Barbados and its tropical forests. From the same family as Foursquare rums (single cask vintages) and R.L. Seale’s (very old rums), the quality of Doorlys rum is a testament to almost one hundred years of expertise in the art of selection and the blending of old eaux de vie. Once relying on other distilleries, like the West Indian Rum Refinery, the R.L. Seal Company has become completely independent since it built its own distillery and installed ultra-modern stills.
DOORLY’S 14 Year old 48%
Doorly’s Fine Old Barbados Rum Aged 14 Years is a blend of Pot and Column distilled rum.
The rum has been aged for 14 years in ex-bourbon casks. A portion of the blend was aged in ex-Madeira casks.
At 48% ABV, this expression is certainly spicier & oiler than the XO; with ginger and spiced oak on the initial palate.
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.
Another spicy, long finish.
