Doorly`s 5 Year Old Barbados Gold Rum
White rum is rarely aged, but Doorly’s White is 100% aged for a minimum of three years in small oak casks. It then undergoes charcoal filtration to achieve its remarkably high clarity and appreciable character and flavour. On the nose, the difference is striking.
Doorly’s is clean, almost creamy in character. On the palate the superior complexity and weight are immediately noticeable, and while the oak flavour is there, it is well integrated with a crisp and clean finish. This is no ordinary white rum.
The Foursquare Distillery occupies the site of a former sugar factory that dates back to 1636 and is now one of the most modern and efficient rum distilleries in the world. It has been designed to be 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. 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.
The company produces the island’s number one selling white rum, and for export, the Doorly range.
