Light brown rum distilled from molasses. Aged in used whisky barrels then finished in Orolosso Sherry barrels.
Doorly's XO is a fairly light bodied rum with a smooth smoky finish reminiscent of a good whisky.
The light, aroma and tropical fruit in the initial taste are well balanced with hints of spice, lightly roasted nuts and hints of spice lead to a warm smoky finish.
XO deviates from the profile of classic aged Bajan rum in terms of depth of character, but Doorly's XO sips on its own merit and I enjoy this rum on the rocks.
Bottled at 40% alcohol by volume.
Arctic Wolf's review
Doorlys Fine Old Barbados Rum
"...The rum, when poured into my glass, immediately put forth a nice updraft of sweet dark molasses. Light scents of cherries, vanilla, and oak spice provide support for the molasses, and the immediate nose is mild and pleasant....."
