Delighted to see that Doorly's is now back on the shelves after a painful nationwide drought lasting many months. I usually buy the 12 as I find the XO a bit hardcore. Must check out the 14 at some point.Thumbs up for Foursquare, I currently have 2007, 2008, Nobiliary, Detente and Hereditas on the go. I prefer the higher proof of these compared to some of the other Foursquare products.
Doorlys XO, 12 and 14 are also good value Foursquare products and more widely available.
I have enjoyed some the That Boutique-y Rum single cask releases from Diamond Distillery in Guyana.
Great to hear and based on your preferences you would almost certainly enjoy any Hampden examples or indeed Foursquare / Doorly’s releases. Rum Fire is an even more funky Wray & Nephew’s and well worth trying and I personally also enjoy Madieran rum, in particular William Hinton single casks. While the value is not quite what it once was it’s a great respite from Scotch!As a scotch drinker I did not think that I liked rum, having only had the sweet, commercial ones. Lately I have come across some of the drier styles and have become rather enamoured of them. The first one that turned my head was a Rum Nation 10 year old Barbados that was distilled in 2001. That one got me to explore others and soon I was trying a Jamaican rum from Worthy Park, an over-proof rum at 63% alcohol. It was so individual, unique, and characterful that I was hooked. Currently I am drinking a Rum Nation 'Ilha de Madeira' (50%) and the Wray & Nephew Over-proof (63%).
