Smagen er blød og afrundet med lidt fedme. Karamel Mørke krydderier peber røg.

I though, that I know enough about R. L. Seale rums. But this one surprised me. Its more pleasant and drinkable than Doorlys 12 or another one from Barbados MGXO. Though on the other hand its not that distinctive. I would recommend McCoy if you can find a bottle for a good price. One of the more pleasant non-sugared rums.

Nice colour of Ron. End taste is bit sharper, like cinnamon could be felt. There is also a vanilla flavour but Ron is not so sweet. So the guys better drink it. It has full body. I like it. Empty glass after Ron is nice to smell like dried plums I feel. :-)

Had this on ice. Great sweet taste, this is a good one for the home.

The taste was a little too whiskey-like for me. Since I don't drink whiskey this wasn't the right rum for me at the moment.

The aroma offers no sweetness to my nose. Alcohol, fruity (orange?) and soft vanilla and oak. Quite warm on the palate but not hot. It's a very, very strong but smooth warmth. Very dry on the palate. A hint of natural sweetness initially but dries out very quickly and stays dry and woody. Hints of leather. As it sits in the glass and opens up a touch more sweetness comes through on the front end and a bit more oak character. This tastes like aged rum, no BS. Hints of oak, leather and vanilla. Not whisky-like. Long softly bitter finish, slightly numbing. I'd think this is a purist's rum. I like it! A lot! What I would expect from Foursquare. Pure rum, no bull, no sugar, just distilled molasses aged in oak and all the complexities that goes with it. This is a no nonsense rum that has a lot going on and a lot going for it. Highly recommended. Fine Barbados rum, I've yet to be disappointed by one. Enjoy.

Had high hopes for this rum base on the reviews but did not find anything to justify the price. Nose was to sharp, none of the whiskey or molasses hints I expected. This was recommended as a sipper yet the bit covered up the body leaving just a hint of funk. As a mixer again disappointed as it did not carry through with any definition in ginger ale or coke, slightly heavy in citrus. Not a rum I will rebuy though I enjoyed some of the funk.

UPDATE- tried the next round mixed stronger and enjoyed it more...moved to a 7 and may keep in my bar after all...

Reminds me of a slightly more refined RL Searle 10yr.. I compared this along side the 12yr limited edition. Nice deep golden colour in the glass , no added sugars here. On the nose caramel but restrained , not over the top and oak. No fruit notes that I could smell. Dry rum obviously as no sugar , tastes like it should , old school rum , leather , spice and caramel. Good classic rum.. that said I preferred the limited edition with the Madeira.

Though the 10yr Limited Virgin Oak brings a lot to the table, the 12 us sweeter with more of a molasses flavor.

...guter Rum geblendet vom ehemaligen Masterblender von Foursquare, das sagt eigentlich schon alles.
