Another fabulous release from the Doorly's rum range! Doorly’s Fine Old Barbados Rum Aged 14 Years is a blend of Pot and Column distilled rum. The rum has been aged for 14 years in ex-bourbon casks. A portion of the blend was aged in ex-Madeira casks. Woody oak notes dominate initially giving to some fruit. This is more dark fruits though – blackberries and some prunes. The palate has an almost charred note to it. Little bursts of vanilla and some ginger fade in an out of the mix. The mid palate shows more of the Madeira influence. Notes of red wine and blackberries mingle alongside dark chocolate and some faint notes of marmalade. Finish wise we are left with a spicy and slightly heated end to the rum – white pepper and lots of ginger and a trace of cinnamon. The finish is very long and the rum lingers for a long time.
