Now this is some good stuff
i smell coffee, dried fruit and some spice.
i taste coffee too, some raisins and some grape. pepper notes, marzipan.
10/10 - subtract 5 points if you love the sweet stuff
one of the best.. a clean, light rum with a lot of flavour. dried fruit and of course the coffee note from the port aging. a good real rum to show you the taste of aging in a port wine cask!
One of the first foursquare rums I tried. The port shines through but not in an obnoxious way. Sweet dark fruit, hints of all of your favorite baking spices and at a great price! The wax top is a nice added touch!
Kellemes, nem túlzott hordós íz, épp csak annyi alkoholos csípés ami kell a végén. A portói nem nyomasztó, inkább csak az édességben jön vissza. Közepes, de korrekt test. Illata igazi rumos, vanília, édeskés, enyén fás. Egyes tulajdonságai nem kiemelkedők, hanem az összhangjuk, ami zseniális. Ez a harmónia, ennyi pénzért, sok nagy nevet és évet maga mögé utasít. Nagyon ajánlom mindenkinek, amíg még van.
I find this rum delicate, yet powerful. It is not for neophytes. This rum is for connoisseurs, aficionados, enthusiast, in a word, this rum is for "US"! A depth of flavor, layers of perception. This is an introspective, questioning, alliance of dry and the essence of sweet. This is not sweet by any mean, but the "allure" of sweet is certainly present, buy
I like this rum a lot. I enjoyed the port finish and think it gave the rum a great smoothness. I know some do not enjoy the port combination but for me it still had plenty of rum character and a nice finish with the port. I don't prefer many rums neat, but for me this one has the smoothness that lends itself to drinking straight. I was happy to see it available at a local store and will buy another to keep on hand when looking to enjoy a rum neat. This one works for me. Good pricing for a great product!
Sublimely drinkable, perfect proof, easy on the nose and not adulterated with sugar or flavoring. Truly a great rum that everyone should seek out. Most rums twice this price aren't this good.
Foursquare distilleries in the South-East of Barbados does a fantastic line in single cask aged unadulterated rums.
Not blended, not from a solera, not sweetened, but given its own character from the treatment usually expected from a single malt whisky, and in this case - ageing in Bourbon and Port casks for 9 years.
The bottle is a bit disappointing - it is the standard bottle also used for a lot of the Doorly's with a cheap screw top.
In the glass the rum is a deep amber with a big, smooth aroma. None of the smokiness of the Doorly's XO, but with a deep warm port note, that carries all the way through.
In the mouth it is exceptionally smooth, with the raisin and fig notes given extra depth by the port finish. it is a dry rum without vanilla notes.
Finish is a gentle burn with the aroma lingering really well.
This is the kind of carefully crafted quality, that is turning me away from my entry favourites of Zacapa and Plantation, which focus on consistency by blending and appeal by adding sugar.
This stuff is inconsistently gorgeous!
Notes of Peaches, Vanilla, even some Red Apple the rum also has a hint of red wine/port which runs through it.
"When sipped, the rum has quite a lot of oak. It’s very clean and smooth."
