Doorlys - XOSuperior Rum
This is the new 43% ABV expression.
This fine aged release is a blend of Rums from the artisanal copper double retort pot still, and traditional twin column, continuous Coffey still at Foursquare Distillery. Initially matured in ex-bourbon cask, it is then given a further maturation in pre-seasoned fine Spanish Oloroso Sherry cask. The result is a delicate fusing of complex flavours giving rise to a Rum of unparalleled excellence.
Nose: Complex and evolving. A mix of vanilla, toffee, rich sweet raisins, tamarind, and cacao. With hints of black tea, and brazil nuts.
Palate: An initial rush of soft, honied caramel sweetness, that quickly develops into a gentle peachy fruitness.
Finish: Lots of tannic, oak-y grip, and notes of vanilla, dried dates and hints of tamarind. Hints of black tea, gentle tobacco fade into a peppery, lasting finish.
Doorly's rums are crafted in Barbados by R. L. Seale & Co- a 4th generation family-owned business passed from father-to-son since the 1920's.
