Now this is some good stuff
This is another of the "Exceptional Cask Series" that Foursquare has been turning out of the last few years and like the others this one is also a winner. It has a great nose where the natural sweetness comes through. The first sip is somewhat spicy which is surprising since it has a lower ABV of 48% compared to the other Cask series. However, further sips the sweetness and complex flavors come through. I'm really enjoying this one!
Im really torn between 9 and 10 score. It is really amazing rum with nice aroma full of oak, grapes and orange. In mouth is full of flavours. Mainly oak, raisins, tropical fruit and grapes. Finish is very long due to 48% and very warm. I would rate it 9,5.
Lets start off with my expectations, they were quite high for this one, as this is my first Foursquare and everyone I spoke to about it was nothing short of raving about it. So there we go: the smell is smooth and with a promising sweetness. Then when you take a sip, it enters your mouth with a noticable thickness. This quickly disperses in your mouth into a thinner substance that tickles all your tastebuds. Its an explosion of taste, greatly balanced; sweetness as well as a dryer taste. You can really taste the different casks it has aged in. The afterburn is nice and present but yet smooth and leaves you with a warm and enjoyable aftertaste. You will be longing for more, but not in a way that you’ll finish the bottle in no time. It’s a rum that demands attention while drinking to fully enjoy the whole complexity of it. Cheers!
Fan of this brand & the integrity behind their label. Nice nose, deep caramel warm chocolate across the palate, finishes with SMOKE!? Every time I drink it, I cannot believe the smokiness on the backend. Maybe I’m wrong, I definitely do not have a sophisticated palate. Either way, WINNER!
Let it breath some minutes. The first hit was alcoholic but after a few minutes a beautiful palate of flavours appear.
Aroma: vanilla, backed bananas, bourbon, red wine, later black current and wine zest.
Taste: less sweet than the nose suggests. Spicy, light sweet. Long finish with spices and wine'ish tanins.
As an fan of Foursquare rums the Sagacity is an excellent addition to my collection. Tasting this rum is incredible, full of fruit and a touch of sweetness.
The Madeira cask gave some delightful acidity to this rum. The aroma gives off some hints of caramel raisins and the taste has tiny bit of sweetness to it. I’m sorry I just can’t describe how amazing this rum is but it is definitely on the sweeter side of the spectrum for the Four square exceptional cask series. I could replace all my dessert with this.
