Truly a fantastic choice
The rum is very smooth, but at 60% you need to sip slowly to thoroughly enjoy.
While it’s not my best, it isn’t very far from being there. I want to experiment with adding some water to lower the ABV and see if the palette improves.
This is really good and really strong. I’m doing re-tasting my ratings with last four Foursquare’s. 2008 smooth really packs you early with its strength, and wow does it linger. Bourbon lovers should like this, I’m keeping it at a 9.5 so 10.
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.
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.
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.
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.
