I've been looking for this rum
Ahoy hoy, I spies a tasty rum!
Promising start, dissapointing finish
Beautifully sweet and caramelly.
I am very new to the world of whiskys and rums so feel free to take as much or as little from this review as you like but personally I was dissapointed with this rum. At first you get a nice sweet taste, not overpowering but definitely noticeable. Unfortunately this is replaced very quickly with an alcohol burn/taste. It just isn't as smooth as rums I have tried in the past such as Sailor Jerry's and Lamb's. I personally will not be buying or sampling any more of this particular rum.

I don't know what the other reviewer is on about - clearly he prefers sub-standard drams and is unable to detect subtle after-tastes. This rum is like drinking alcoholic caramel - it's fantastically smooth, slightly aromatic and leaves a rich and earthy aftertaste. Although cheaper than more classic rums like pussers, el dorado and mount gay it offers superb competition. So if you're on a tight budget I'd ignore Mr. Sailor Jerry up yonder and snatch up a bottle.

the 1st reviewer must be used to bacardi and it's burn. I really like a mixed drink that doesn't have the alcohol burn. with Doorly's XO I just drop a couple ice cubes and sip it neat. it has a great flavor (not syrupy) and if you insist on slamming, it will get you drunk just as easily as the others. the last bottle i had lasted about a year. and i enjoyed and tasted every drop.

I'm more of a single malt guy, but am trying to expand my horizons a little. The sherry finish on this rum, along with some of its wood character is familiar, though the finish is clearly set apart from what I'm used to - it's spicy yet sweet. I really enjoy it.
