Default Doorly's Fine Old Barbados Rum

Doorly's Fine Old Barbados Rum

A new premium rum hit the store shelves in Alberta recently. It is being brought to this market by Rum Runner Imports (RRI), a Vancouver based import company who have recently invaded my home Province with their Doorly's Fine Old Barbados Rum and a new Rum Liqueur called Mamajuana.

I was contacted by RRI, and asked if I could provide reviews for each of these products. Of course, I was happy to oblige.

Doorly's Fine Old Barbados Rum is a product of R. L. Seale & Co. Ltd. It is distilled in Barbados which is considered by many sources to be the birthplace of rum dating back to 1651 where the first known recorded written usage of the word Rum Bullion appears. Rums from Barbados are called Bajan Rums, and I have previously reviewed two other Bajan rums, Mount Gay Extra Old Rum, and Cockspur 12 year Old Rum. As you read the review for Doorly's XO, you will notice that I find the rum to be much different in flavour than the other Bajan rums I reviewed. It has a lighter more laid back style which appeals to my northern palate; here is an excerpt from my review:

"....Over a period of two weeks, I sipped Doorly's X.O., and I was captivated by contradiction. The first flavour I noticed was a sweet mild caramel toffee, yet in spite of the mild flavour, my tongue was also greeted with a tart orange peel and oak tannin. Apricots seemed to dance in the flavour profile with whispers of cherries, only to turn into bananas and raisins when I take the next sip..."

Also I have provided two cocktail suggestions of mine for your enjoyment and one cocktail suggestion forwarded to me by Rum Runner Imports. Enjoy the review.

I finally got the posting issue sorted out.

The Link works and so do all the special characters. Just so everyone else knows..

Cutting and pasting from word does not work well anymore.. it used too.
