What are the tasting notes for Doorly’s 14?

Answered by Jesse Garza

As an expert sommelier and brewer, I have had the pleasure of tasting many different , and Doorly's 14 is no exception. This immediately greets the palate with a bouquet of spices, with ginger and oak taking the lead. The ginger provides a warm and slightly spicy note, while the oak adds depth and complexity to the overall profile.

As the initial spice subsides, the sweetness of Madeira begins to emerge. Madeira is known for its rich, sweet flavors, and Doorly's 14 showcases this beautifully. The sweetness is reminiscent of dark chocolate orange, creating a harmonious balance between the chocolate and the bright citrus notes.

To add another layer of complexity, there is a hint of jammy berries that mingles with the sweetness. This adds a touch of fruitiness to the overall flavor profile, enhancing the richness of the rum.

On the finish, the spices make a comeback, but this time with the addition of cinnamon. The warmth of the cinnamon adds a comforting and familiar note to the rum, while a touch of char provides a subtle smokiness that lingers on the palate.

Doorly's 14 is a rum that offers a dynamic and diverse tasting experience. The combination of spices, Madeira sweetness, dark chocolate orange, jammy berries, and the final touch of cinnamon and char create a truly memorable and delightful drinking experience.
