Doorly's XO Barbados Rum Oloroso Finish (70cl, 43%)
To produce the unique character of Doorly's XO, very old rums are selected by the master blender and matured for a second time in Spanish oloroso sherry casks, producing a delicious fusion of complex flavours from the cask and the well-aged rums.
Very elegant nose of toffee with hints of vanilla and mocha. A rich yet subtle rum surprisingly mellow. Demerara sugar, treacle, liquorice and aniseed on the palate. Exceptionally smooth.
The Foursquare Distillery occupies the site of a former sugar factory that dates back to 1636 and, as one of the most modern and efficient rum distilleries in the world, is designed to be both highly energy efficient and environmentally friendly. The distillery produces light rums in a three-column vacuum still and heavier rums in a modern pot still. RL Seale is one of Barbados oldest trading houses, a family-owned business whose involvement in rum-making extends from father-to-son since 1820. Current head distiller, Richard Seale, is one of the region's most innovative distillers and blenders and has a passion for producing perfect rum with great flavour.
