Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
A nice rum with a distinct nose and taste of port. Long pleasant aftertaste, but overall to much port for my taste.
Le nez est doux et plutôt discret, et est porté par un duo vanille/boisé accompagné de certains fruits (cassis, cerise).
L’attaque est douce en bouche et confirmera les mêmes saveurs.
La finale est légèrement boisée et nous laisse avec une impression de gâteau pâtissier.
Ce n’est pas un mauvais rhum mais trop gourmand pour mon gout.
Første FS rom. Jeg skal vende mig til smagen, men synes den smager rigtig godt. Kunne forstille mig, at hvis jeg skulle lave denne rating om et halvt år, så ville den få en eller to højere.
Sugar: Estimated 4 GPL. Another classic rum from the Foursquare masters.
The first thing I noticed was the screw top bottle that has been dipped in wax. This rum is worthy of a proper cork. Second thing, is you need to let this rum catch some air. It's a bit sharp on the nose, so give it a swirl and wait a minute. As expected after 6 years in a Port cask the rum has a nice reddish tint to it as well as a decent aroma and taste of port. Underneath the dominant port taste is a well balanced classic rum with vanilla, oak, some peppery spices (probably from aging in bourbon casks, and a touch of caramel. Nice kick and burn all the way down. Overall I find this rum to be a very good value, but I don't see this being anything higher than an 8 as it has some sharp edges to it.
Sweet spicy with vanilla and banana. I can find the oak but I have more trouble with port. Need to taste again because he was the fourth in a series of 7 tested rum last night and too light body would not let me unforgettable memories
This is one of the oddest profiles on a rum I have ran across to date. While it is rather smooth it does have a strong cask influence from the port. Meaning just that really the port is the main note here. It does have some very nice spice going on behind the port, but this becomes rather muted by the cask influence. Overall not bad if you like port very nice in the mouth and going down. If you want a rum with a rare profile and different taste then this is a good bet. A gripe I had with the US bottle with the wax was that the bottles I bought leaked unopened when upturned. Drops came down the sides. Upon further inspection of the opened bottle there was glass missing at the top of the bottle creating space between the metal screw top. I did not see any glass chip in the bottle so I can only assume that it happened prior to bottling.
The aroma of port wine is immediately present and powerful, and so my senses were primed to taste aged port...but instead I got rum with very heavy port overtones. Now, I like port and I like rum, but not in the same glass. I don't feel that the flavors blended well to make one fine drink. Instead, there are two prominent and distinct profiles, and little harmony between them.
Smagt til romhattens romfestival 2019. Den får en 7'er.
Fruity undertones of apricot and pear. Finishes with elements of spice and plums.
I have tasted this Foursquare last saturday during a tasting event and I was a little bit disappointed.
This rum is a little bit too thin for me and I was not really able to determine all the blended aromas.
Maybe I should give it another try ...
I guess this rum is something you like or not at all. I feel the taste is too much cask.
Salty, sour. I found it difficult to find anything to get attached to.
Duft: vanilje, karamel, tørret frugt dejlig sød duft med en smule fad ingen sprit.
Smag: en smule sprit. Tør og sød på samme tid. Der er en del fad. slutter med en bitter chokoladesmag
Port and rum, bad combination. A bit of port complexity washed away by alchool
But unfortunately they don't come together very well (at all).
Quite strange, it zig-zags between sweet rum and sour port. Both taste quite nice on their own but together isn't great.
Golden brown in colour, couldn't see any of the red other people mentioned.
Very smooth taste, only a slight but very pleasant hint of burn.
"Off" finish similar to a sherried whisky. Slight gap in the aftertaste and then an almost aniseed taste.
