Truly a fantastic choice
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.
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.
As i open the bottle expecting this to be somewhat the same as the 2007 i am suprised. This 2008 is a bit smoother than the 2007, tasting them side by side. I actualy have only one word for this. Excelent.
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.
Hard to find
Buy if you can ! Great if you like a true Rum Honest Product this one.
Sold at £60 not cheap by any means
I ordered another bottle straight away after tasting 60% ABV I'm a Fan Not sweet Perfect for my
palette .Every time I pour a glass I worry I'll never be able to replace it EVER
Coming to this rum from bourbon was a natural step. This rum has a great aroma and color in the glass. I get very warm sugar notes and complex taste on the palette. The finish is long-I think it must be related to the proof.
All in all, I highly recommend this rum. The only reason I did not give it a 10/10 is due to my limited experience with rums in general.
Had this stuff right at the source in Barbados. This is a full bodied manly rum so Democrats do not bother wasting your time o this on stick with the Malibu coconut and such. Good but a bit pricey...
