Doorly’s 12 Year Fine Old Barbados Rum

Doorly’s 12 Year Fine Old Barbados Rum is a product of the Foursquare distillery. This is located on a former sugar plantation that dates back to approximately 1720. It is on the Caribbean island of Barbados.

The distillery was re-opened by the Seale family in 1996. Distilling operations and blending are currently directed by Richard Seale, 4th Generation trader/distiller of R.L. Seale & Co.

This is a blend of pot and column still rums. Aged in ex-bourbon oak casks, and some component of this was been finished in ex-madeira casks.

The nose has notes of caramel, toffee. The palate offers some sweetness (although no sugar has been added) molasses, toffee, oak, and a modest array of funky & fruity rum esters.

This is one of my favorite rums. I recommend this one to all my friends. Unadulterated pure rum, affordable, and readily available. In the top of its class..
