Now this is some good stuff
Foursquare keeps releasing new expressions, each better than the last!
On the nose, it’s sweet with vanilla, fruit and caramel.
On the palate, its smooth. it’s sweet, spicy and peppery. There’s a good burn which is to be expected at this ABV, however, this is one of the smoothest Foursquare Exceptional Cask releases. Definitely one you can drink neat.
The finish is strong and spicy on the tongue and lingers with sugar cane grassiness for a long time.
This is a great rum, and by far my favorite. Time to stock up!
After breaking the seal on this bad boy and pouring myself a small glass of Detente I immediately notice a much lighter color from this particular offering. Closer to the golden hue of St. Nicholas Abbey. Mild bourbon and oak smell that’s slightly sweet. Wow.... very mild ...
The 51% alcohol is very easy for me to drink. Very smooth. Oak, bourbon and the port cask subtitles are present in your mouth. I like this rum, but it isn’t as memorable as some other offerings. Not as complex as I like and a shorter mild finish. I like my rum to stick to my mouth for a while. Overall enjoyable, but IMO not there best offering.... still a solid experience
As a 10year rum the aroma is strong, brought out by the alcohol body. I really enjoy the kick up front and the milder tone afterwards. Solid.
Bottle released in 2020, it is more like a lot of aged Dominican rums with heavy bourbon notes of chocolate and such. Less sweet than Dominicans which is better for experienced drinker.
Was a huge fan of the Sagacity so it was between another bottle of that or trying this interesting one. High hopes. The smell salutes u with caramel, fruit and tones of wood. The taste starts of with the return of the caramel and proceeds quite spicy. Then a nice kick (its a 51% rum afterall) that is nothing too dominating and flows nicely into the aftertaste, which is smooth, rich of flavor, some sweetness but nothing sticky if u get what i mean. Nice and long as wel, leaves you with a warm throat. All in all its a very delicious and balanced rum. Great for the winter season, but probably equally delicious in the summer sun. Cheers!
I love this rum! I'm a big fan of all of Foursquare's rums and one of my favorites was the Port cask. I'm still angry with myself for not buying more when it was around. So, I was very happy to see that they were releasing another exceptional cask series with being aged in port casks.
The nose is fruity with hints of berries and apples with some vanilla as well. The first taste is amazing with more hints of berries but also some spice and heat that really shows its complexity.
I will definitely be buying a few more bottles of this while it lasts!
