Truly a fantastic choice
I think the last few offerings of Foursquare are as good as it gets. Rich full bodied complex similar to other full bourbon cask releases but very smooth little afterburn like Nobiliary. If you can find it buy it.
Smell: Salted caramel, coconut, a hint of cocoa butter and sweet oak.
Taste: Rich, velvety, and mouth coating. Coconut, oak, chocolate, and tropical fruit with a hint of spice (rye, cinnamon and clove). A long, lingering finish that transitions from caramel to dark cherry. It's everything aged rum should be. Rich, indescribably deep and complex - a true symphony of flavors all playing in perfect harmony.
Buy it when you see it, this will be the benchmark for aged rum for years to come.
Full bodied flavor similar to bourbon but with that rum funk, the proofing being much higher than most aged rums does come through stronger than it would in bourbon, but still a tasty sipper. Worth the money for sure
As with any of the latest Foursquare offerings, 2008 packs a huge amount of flavor. At 60% ABV, it’s also got a lot of heat, but the initial nose isn’t as alcohol forward as the 2007 expression.
Notes of oak, molasses and fruit come to the front, and afterward, spice and vanilla.
The first sip hits the palate with spice and fruit, with a health burn, which can be expectation this ABV%. The fruit lingers along with the burn and ends with a caramel/vanilla fruit finish.
In all honesty, I’ve yet to try a Foursquare expression I didn’t like; it’s just a matter of preference, but there’s a lot to be said about rum that has all these amazing flavors and no additives. Get a bottle, you won’t be disappointed!
PS. This one is best served neat. It’s nice with a single ice cube, but it loses a little dimension with ice.
Tasted it side by side with 2007, and this is slightly better in all parametres I think. Stronger deep nose, more round taste and a fantastic aftertaste. 9.5!
taste - 10/10
smell - 10/10
sweetness - 7.5/10
price/value rating - 6.5/10
The best rum I ever tasted. I'd never thought 60% may be so smooth.
it’s a very good rum but at $90 a bottle, I can find others as good or better for less. All in all I’m not disappointed with spending the money but I probably wouldn’t do it again unless I can find it cheaper.
