Description

As a fun fact, this is the first commercially available blend that Richard Seale, the current Master Blender and Distiller of Forsquare, created himself – the previous releases were inherited from the companies acquired by R. RL Seale is one of Barbados' oldest trading houses, a family-owned business whose involvement in rum-making extends from father-to-son since 1820.

However the distillation of Rum did not become as popular in Barbados until 1906 due to the Rum Duty Act!A range of its superb rums can be found here, such as Doorlys 3 Year Old, Doorly's XO Rum and the famous Doorly's 12 Year Old - so be sure to check them out - and enjoy! While I’m sure it was a business decision as well, one of the reasons for incorporating all these labels under the R. Rum has been produced on the island of Barbados for more than 300 years, but it was not until the 1906 Rum Duty Act was passed that the industry began to develop as we know it today.

To produce the unique character of Doorly's XO, very old rums are selected by the master blender and matured for a second time in Spanish oloroso sherry casks, producing a delicious fusion of complex flavours from the cask and the well-aged rums. The flavour comes from the distillate and ageing in good quality barrels, in Barbados, for a substantial period of time. Unusually for a white rum, it is aged for a minimum of 3 years in small casks before being filtered to give a clear and unique spirit.The nose is rich and sweet with notes of tropical fruit and toffee apples, the palate is full with a viscous mouthfeel. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

This a double maturation rum, first one being for 5 years in ex-Bourbon casks and the second one going up to 3 additional years in former Oloroso casks – hence the lack of a number on the label, as I don’t think a “6 years old” in its branding would do it justice.One of the best continuous rum bottlings that use sherry casks, absolutely beautiful – nutty, fruity and spicy with a nice, velvety mouthfeel. Accolades include “Rum Producer of the Year” from the ISC for 8 consecutive and most recently in 2023! Notes of red wine and blackberries mingle alongside dark chocolate and some faint notes of marmalade. For that the same reason I couldn’t take a photo of the bottling, but the branding is the same as the 5YO.

We like nothing more than tasting wine with fellow enthusiasts and sharing the stories of the people who have created the wine. Wer aber milden Rum mag, der auch eine leicht süßliche Nuance hat, der sollte diesen Rum definitiv ausprobieren.Information and statements about products are not intended to be used to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease or health condition. Now before I carry on I’ll mention that all the rums in the Doorly’s range are chill filtered and, besides the 3YO, have caramel colouring added (E150A) for visual consistency – this type of caramel is added in small amounts and does not affect the taste.
