Now this is some good stuff
Beautiful bronze reddish colour in the glass. The second maturation in the port cask the aromas ore not overpowering. Overall nicely balanced with a more fruity type notes coming up front. Taste is a bit light for a bajan rum but again is nicely balanced with fruity notes leading into more dark fruits, caramel, spice with plenty of tannins. Nice creamy mouthfeel. A nice sweetish dry finish.
Another great rum from Foursquare and wish I had bought another bottle.
This is a rum for my taste
Nose: wood, oil, apples and grapes
Pallet: burned sugar, wood, raisins, licorice and a fantastic balanced taste of port with a medium to long burn.
JD-test: 0-5 g/l sugar and 39,6 %ABV
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Velmi příjemná vůně. Jde o výtečný mix propolisu, medu, včelích pláství, kokosu, máty, ale i těžce květinových a ovocných vůní (sušené borůvky), ke kterým se přidává i cedrové dřevo. (89 b)
Chuť: Vůně mě připravila na něco sladšího, takže při první ochutnávce jsem byl překvapen suchou chutí. Klasicky rumový projev s kůží, kakaovou suchostí, větrovou dřevitostí a opáleným dřevem v dozvuku. (85 b)
Shrnutí: Vliv portského bych nehádal a ani nepoznal. Baví mě víc svou vůní, v chuti neurazí. Pro ty, co hledají suchý rum, je to ideální volba. I když jsem spíš na sladší rumy, nákupu lahve nelituju.
The port finish has a solid presence in the tasting. First stage of taste i found a bit "bitter grape-ey" followed by quite a strong middle flavor and a long very interesting lingering taste. I dont feel the port makes it overly sweet at all, especially since i donot like sweet rums. Very good sipper at 32 euros!
Good work from Barbados. The foursquare port cask finish nine years rum outsourced to its distillation for three years in American bourbon barrels. The distillate is then stored again for another six years in ex-Port Cask barrels.
Real fruity taste!
This rum got no additives, no sugar..
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!
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!
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."
