Doorlys Barbados Rum XO

The Schtick: This is rum sourced from Foursquare in Barbados and sold through Total Wine and More in the USA. Carrying a modest price tag and a reasonable age statement, I was intrigued when I stumbled across a bottle on sale.

Nose: Sweet sugar, pineapple. Faint clove, pepper, cocoa. Really sweet with a nice dry backend.

Finish: Short, mild heat/astringency. Mildly fruity and mildly oaky, but really not a lot going on.
