Truly a fantastic choice
Frankly,I like more those aged in sherry or port casks. Like Empery or Détente. But 2008 is very good rum. I am more on sweeter side but from time to time is nice to change the taste and try something different. Then Foursquare is something you can rely on.
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...
Similar to Sagacity, but on higher level. Aroma is nice and fruity. Taste is fruity sweet and a bit burning but only shortly, after is nicely warm. Mouth is full of tastes and flavors but fruits and peach dominate. Aftertaste is long and pleasant - you will discover new tones again and again.
This is my second Foursquare and again it is an outstanding experience.
The smell is mild and rich with aromas of dried plums, vanilla, coconut and leather.
On the palate it unfolds aromas of honey, vanilla, toffee, dried apples, black pepper and a hint of glue followed by a long lasting finish of burned caramel, bitter orange and some licorice.
Despite the high ABV and the 12 years of tropical ageing it is not overly heavy and has a pleasent burn without being harsh.
It is a rich and wonderful rum for a relaxed winter evening, like a little fireside in your glass.
