Port and rum, bad combination. A bit of port complexity washed away by alchool

This is what great rum should taste like. No added sugar or additives...just the brilliance of a master distiller (Richard Seale) doing what he does best. This just shows that you don't have to add 40 grams of sugar per liter to have a smooth and well tasting rum. Can't wait to try to Zinfandel Cask next!

This is a wonderful rum , free of any artificial flavors. True craftsmanship! I like it best with ice in it.

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!

I usually rate rums about a point below their consensus rating, because I've tried so many high quality rums. And I generally don't care that much for rums that are aged too much in bourbon, whiskey, and other such barrels. A lot of reviewers said this one had too much port aging. I respectfully disagree.

Smells and tastes of brown sugar, molasses, oak, vanilla, spice (cinnamon and nutmeg), with a little port, and just a very light touch of bourbon and pepper. Has a nice sweetness that is not overly sweet. At only $31.99 (Total Wines 2016), this rum is an absolute bargain.

I am really impressed by this rum; I rate it a high 9.

I really enjoy the port cask influence. It makes this rum more complex and very interesting. Already getting more expensive in Holland so buy it while it is still available. In my opinion a very honest rum.

overwhelming sweetness - despite no sugar added. Notes of oak, coconut, vanilla and caramel. Even a hint of bitter chocolate. Love the mix of port and bourbon cask flavours. Just elegant. Best Buy Rum for the price

This is very good, but not exactly to my liking. Should I rate it lower for that? I don't think so. Just because I might have paid a little too much for a high end mixer, it won't be the first time. It won't stop me from trying the next Foursquare/Seale offering. They make a mean rum. Try them all, and you will easily like way more than you don't.

Fruity undertones of apricot and pear. Finishes with elements of spice and plums.

Nose: Rum, real and proper rum. Some light toffee and vanilla, slightly grassy and dry with some buzzing oaky notes coming through. Under the heavy-weight rum and bourbon notes the port starts to come out to play and then the depth of this rum starts to show itself; dark berries, plums and black cherry. Rich dark chocolate liquors of some type., light fruity coffee (something like a Kenyan Peaberry), and some good spices – cinnamon, cloves, black pepper. The faintest suggestion of banana off in the distance too. Beautiful and really well balanced, the nose is delivered in layers without one aspect pushing it’s way through for dominance.

Palate: Well the nose was pretty good, lets see what the palate has to offer. Medium mouth-feel, dry, good level of coating. Dry. Oak, dry. The flavours jump straight out, it’s quite a big flavour despite the low abv; follows the nature of the nose with bourbon cask first showing plenty of caramel and vanilla on the first sip but the port shows up sooner than on the nose and leads with under-ripe plums, black grapes and dates/prunes. Dry. After a few sips more starts to become available with some dark and bitter black chocolate, black coffee, nutmeg, and some black pepper.

Finish: Long. Dry. As the palate moves to the finish there is loads of fresh ground black pepper and cinnamon, it’s mouth puckering and slightly bitter (in a good way). There are some vague and suggested dark fruits on the finish but it’s mostly drying, bitter oaky chocolate that slowly drifts off as the finish fades.
