Country Barbados
Spirit Type Rum
Brand Seales
Size 70cl
ABV 40%

A six year old blend of rums from Barbados, with a rich, round, complex palate.  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.

On the nose, very elegant aromas of toffee with hints of vanilla and mocha.  In the mouth this is a rich yet subtle rum that is surprisingly mellow. Demerara sugar, treacle, liquorice and aniseed can be tasted on the palate and the finish is exceptionally smooth.

Country Of Origin: Barbados

The first quality recorder rum was produced in Barbados, probably during the 1620's and today the first choice of the island inhabitants, known as Bajans, are the rums produced by R L Seale. The distillery is located in the south of the island, where the warm breezes of the Caribbean gently lap at the oak barrels used for aging - and does much the same for the delectable contents as the ocean breezes add to the taste of a good Islay single malt.

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.

Rum has been produced on the island of Barbados for more than 300 years, but it was not until the 1906 Rum Duty Act was passed that the industry began to develop as we know it today. Prior to this, distillation took place on many of the plantations, but the new law meant the distilleries had to obtain a licence and could sell only in bulk. Hence many of the Bridgetown trading companies became bottlers, including Martin Doorly & Co, and the growth of branded names began. Martin Doorly evolved into Doorly’s Macaw Rum, and became the first bottled rum exported from the island. Doorly’s rums are still famous throughout the world.
