I love Doorly’s and Four square but I can’t even mix this in cocktails. Go for the 12 year, the 8 is marginally better. Sorry I see hangovers coming from this one.

Nice spice and a bite, but limited unique notes. Plantation 5-year is better, I’d go with that

N- Vanilla and honey with subtle pepper and mineral at the backdrop. All fine but remains basic and sugary at initial stage, but develop with layers of earthiness in the nuances of fresh leafs, sour milk and ashy smokes. Rum macerated berries, orange and jammy with molasses undertone. (86/20)

P- Lovely bright and full at low proof with zesty high notes remains there for a long time. Then some oak phenol lingers with toasted sugar bread. Not sure about any additive, probably it does at minimal dosage, but feel pure and clean. (87/21)

F- Medium, clean, pepper with coat of oak for boldness, smooth with hint of wax. (87/21)

B/B- 87/21

Weighted Rate- 83pt

Good stuff! Recieved as a gift. Can't wait to try FourSquare's other rums!

This is great basic rum that goes on some party with ice, and gets job done.
Definitly not a sipper that I would cherish moments on friday evenings, but still it is better than vodka and cheap whisky

Final verdict:
I will definitly give it another shot on some occasion

It’ll definitely not disappoint when you need an aged Bajan on budget. It’ll gladly take a backseat beautifully if you’re making ‘gentle’ cocktails. Along with the Macaw It’s a pantry rum.

My First "real" Rum. So this will forever be a special memory to me :-)

This is a simple mixing rum. There are no harsh, overpowering flavors. It's quite smooth considering its age, but, ultimately, it's too light-tasting & simple to be much of a sipper. Mixer only.

Ένα μπουκαλάκι το οποίο καθαρίσαμε "εν μία ριπή" μαζί με τον φίλο μου τον Μ.....ο στην συναυλία των Artic Monkeys !!!??!!! Ναι ..... δε ξέρω αν η γενικότερη ευφορία βοήθησε ώστε να απολαύσουμε στο μέγιστο αυτό το ρούμι ..... Σίγουρα όμως είναι ευκολόπιοτο, με ωραία αρώματα, μέτρια ένταση και επίγευση. Αν προσπαθήσω να το παρομοιάσω με κάποιο , τότε σίγουρα θα το παρομοίαζα με το Plantation 5 .... Καλή επιλογή στα 25€.

Nice mixing rum I personally prefer the plantation 5 but it's almost as nice. Barbados make good rum you cant get away from that

Friends bought this for me as a present from Barbados. Enjoyable but average
