Doorly`s 5 Year Old Barbados Gold Rum
A delicate aged rum from Barbados. Amber, with a complex, dried tropical fruit nose. A vibrant entry leads to an evolving palate of fruit, toasted coconut and oak notes.
Finishes with a fruity sweetness and warmth, but has a balanced lingering taste with a butternut vanilla aftertaste. A well-developed five year-old 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.
