Had this on ice. Great sweet taste, this is a good one for the home.
En meget afrundet og sød rom, der på samme tidspunkt også har lidt kant. Den mangler dog noget på eftersmagen efter min mening.
This is an in your face rum in a good way. Pretty harsh in your mouth. Not that sweet. Nose: lemon, vanilla, apple and cinnamon. Palate: Vanilla, orange, figs and sherry. Good one 👍
I first tried the Real McCoy 12 at the local Rumfest several years ago. I liked it then and I like it now -especially since I have a whole (okay, now less than whole) bottle. Smooth and very nice for sipping. On my scale, I have it as a 7.5.
Liked the history behind the brand. The rum was a straight forward rum, no real aftertaste nor flavour. Not a bad rum but not great either.
The bourbon casks really comes shining through on this rum. It's definitely has that distinctive oak taste but it's not overpowering. It has a nice balance of citrus and banana flavoring with a hint of tobacco. Just another great example of Bajan rum and Foursquare.
Another wonderful unadulterated rum from Mr. Seale and his Foursquare Distillery. Rich rum flavors, notes of toffee, oak, molasses and spices, but at 80 proof, none of the alcohol burn. An example of Bajan rum at its best.
Rigtig fin rom der kan stille lysten hos både den der vil have sødt og den der vil have stærkt.
Puissance et gourmandise au rdv de cet excellent Foursquare ! Mon rhum de tous les jours !
It's not sweet. I like sweet but I still like this one. It tastes natural.
Dejlig rom. Klar duft af kokus. Smagen er lidt tør, rund, kokus, vanilje og karamel
There is very little burn in sipping this and it has a toasted oaky vanilla flavor that comes through. It's not as bold as Doorly's 12 year which has a more dominant copper and aged fruit like flavor. IMO it doesn't have that coppery like flavor of rl seales 10 yr or Doorly's of any kind. It's smooth on the throat for sure and definitely woody w some brown sugar. It's like an unsugared and smoother Pampero Aniversario RE. This has sweet wet oak flavor and pretty sharp tannins that are different from other foursquare offerings, I love it. Update: just tasted this after tasting Don Q Anejo and the toasted cocunut flavor of this rum becomes highly noticeable, smooth and delicious, gotta drink it straight!
I really enjoyed this rum. It felt super real to me. Somehow knowing that no sugar was added to this to make it sweet and that every drop in the bottle is at least 12 years old just adds to the experience.
I had a very good rum tasting session with my buddy at one of the best rum bars in Chicago where I tasted the Real McCoy for the very first and absolutely the last time, and the Real McCoy 12 year old easily took the last spot on this tasting, and after well over 200 aged rums tasted during the past 15 years, is easily on my least favorite 10 rum list. This is very close to my all time lowest rum Barbancourt 8 and 15 year old rums. Awful vile liquid, stay away from this one.
Ikke lige min smag, men smagte bestemt ikke grimt. Men er mere til deres 5 års.
For the price, this is a great value rum. An easy sipping rum with great flavour and depth, its not gonna blow your mind. But this is a 12yr old with quality, that would otherwise cost you much more.
Měl jsem možnost ochutnat i s přednáškou od majitele firmy.
This is a nice sipper neat. Not overly sweet, only natural sweetness. Great rum mouth feel.
Dette er nok en af de bedste rom jeg har smagt, hvor der ikke er tilsat sukker
Dufter meget som Eldorado 12 som mit Ummidelbart førstehåndsindtryk. Efter lidt længere tid med næsen i glasset finder jeg følgende: citrus, vanilje, kokos, egetræsfad som bliver helt nøddeagtig i næsen.
Smagen er temmelig sprittet men utrolig sød til at det er en rom som ikke er tilsat sukker. Der er utrolig meget fad smag. Som snævrer mundhulerne helt ind til Kindbenet.
Toch ook weer een prima rum van de Foursquare Distilleerderij op Barbados. De rum heeft minimaal 12 jaar gerijpt in ex-bourbon vaten. Smaken en aroma's van molasse, hout, kruiden en salmiak. Geen suiker en kleurstoffen toegevoegd.
A typical Barbados rum with floral notes and light body. i enjoyed it but i had better ones
Volles Aroma, sehr gut. Echte 12 Jahre, kein Solera. Nicht nachgezuckert, trotzdem angenehm süß.
My first exploration of Foursquare and Richard Seale. A purest delight. No sugar added so you get a true taste of his rum. Very balanced with many nuances on the nose and taste. Vanilla, caramel, toffee, citrus with a hint of tobacco. As a fan of El Dorado 15 and 21 year I must admit this made me rethink my ratings for these.
