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.

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.

Great rum. Very smooth. Notes of vanilla, molasses, nuts, tobacco, and oak. Pour this rum over a big ice cube in a glass and it won’t disappoint.

Another bottle selected as part of our WSET II tasting practice at home (see, this is what happens when rum nerds try and do tastings at home...). Due to 60% ABV notes were made with water added to open up the flavours and not kill my palate.

Appearance: Clear, medium Amber
Nose: Clean, medium+ intensity. Start of Caramel, floral notes (rose?), apricot, cocoa, marzipan, sun warmed peaches, mandarin orange, baking spices, and a hint of sage.
Palate: Clean dry, medium intensity. Toasted coconut, caramel and toffee, dried apricot, peach, prunes, milk chocolate, dried fig, sage, cloves. Long finish, very complex
Conclusion: Outstanding.

Aroma: Vanilka, pražené mandle, bourbonovitost a máslové sušenky. Vůně je ostřejší, procenta jsou opravdu znát
Chuť: Vanilka a nálož opáleného dřeva. Překvapivě jemná
Dozvuk: Opět dubové dřevo, karamel, vanilka a sušené ovoce
Sladkost: 0/3
Vzorek #7 na RumFest Praha 2020, lahev 0,7l
Vynikající rum a neskutečně jemná sudovka. Porovnával jsem s Nobiliary, který u mě těsně zvítězil

Na mě je trochu silnější, přece jen 60% obsah alkoholu. Chuť, ale příjemná s tóny vanilky a sušeného ovoce.

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
