Rum of the Year

Doorly's 14 Year Old

Once again, we’ve searched through the best bottles in the rum world and recruited some of the best brains in the business to help us choose The Whisky Exchange Rum Of The Year. After much debate we have settled on a shortlist of six rums - the best of the best from the past 12 months.

It was a difficult choice to make, but eventually we decided and are thrilled to announce our Rum Of The Year: Doorly’s 14 Year Old.

Rum Of the Year
£4.80 Off



(£87.79 per litre)

A vividly fruity Barbados rum from Richard Seale’s Foursquare Distillery, Doorly’s 14 Year Old is made using molasses from sugar cane grown on the island and is distilled in a combination of pot and column stills. It has been matured in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-Madeira casks, which have imparted rich notes of golden sultanas, dried figs, mango, rich oak spice and the fruity, high-ester funkiness that is characteristic of Foursquare.

Foursquare Distillery

Foursquare has made a name for itself producing extremely high-quality rums blended from both pot and column distillate, aged primarily in ex-bourbon barrels, and bottled across a number of brands, including Real McCoy, the award-winning Doorly’s and the extremely popular – and multi-award-winning – Foursquare Exceptional Cask Selection, which often experiments with different cask maturations and is bottled at higher strengths.
