Now this is some good stuff
As it was the first ECS in the states, it was an immediate positive reaction to my palate. I prefer to not have them aged in wine/port barrels but this one works very well for me.
Amazing rum tasting with Falcon91Wolvrn03 continued with a Foursquare Port Cask Finish. Decent bottle and label design. Bright golden color. Aged only 9y in Bourbon and Port Casks. Strong woody Whisky flavors to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Short and unmemorable ending. Whisky fan boys can add 2 points to my score.
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.
I convince my self that the fine port barrel really was there, in the back of my mouth, but I may just be drunk, I don't know for sure. :)
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 ...
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."
