Review #481. Doorlys XO Rum (Foursquare)

Review #481 | /r/Rum Review #10 – Doorly’s Barbados Rum XO

The Schtick: This is rum sourced from Foursquare in Barbados and sold through Total Wine and More in the USA. Carrying a modest price tag and a reasonable age statement, I was intrigued when I stumbled across a bottle on sale.


Distiller: Foursquare (Barbados)

Bottler: Doorly’s (Total Wine and More)

ABV: 40% ABV

Age: NAS

Source: Bottle, Purchased


Nose: Sweet sugar, pineapple. Faint clove, pepper, cocoa. Really sweet with a nice dry backend.

Taste: Thin, no heat. Sweet, faint funky fruits. Vanilla, sweet orange peel, clove and some dry pepper.

Finish: Short, mild heat/astringency. Mildly fruity and mildly oaky, but really not a lot going on.

Overall: Overall, this is a fine, basic rum. It’s not huge on flavor, but it’s also not really flawed in any big way.

Thanks for reading!
