Now this is some good stuff
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!
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
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 ...
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
Very Unique, I have around 40 different rums in my cabinet and this one is a dead give away. Blind taste test is a piece of cake. You can taste the whiskey on the nose and if finishes with a nice port essence. Not sweet but just a fun and enjoyable libation to make you say, " Wow, like that stuff is pertty darn good, Man". Enjoy it is money well spent. I don't know how you could drink this any way but neat... let me know if u find something.. no don't do it man, i like it just the way it is...
I tried this one at last rum tasting event...I was surprised how nice it tasted! No added sugar, which you will like after all those Riise/Zacapa/DonPapa.
They store it 3 years in US white oak casks, then 6 years in port casks. It is a crossover between port and rum, which makes it unique.
For this price a must have with very nice bottle!
Nose: mild alcohol, cherry
Body: no extra sweetness, strong, port taste, bit of vanilla
Tail: raw, very long lasting,opening up
Bottle: definitely upper average!
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.
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."
