Now this is some good stuff
The heat fades after the first or second sip. My opinion is that using barrels of different wines or spirits to add variety is in itself a form of flavoring (though a sinless one). It's character is pretty much Foursquare, but the zin finish really is a nice touch, and creates something a little special.
Tried this beauty 3 months ago on my birthday but the rum disappeared very quickly as my guests really enjoyed it. The only thing I have to say that I was amazed and saving some coins to buy another bottle in a month or two. Alcohol is so expensive in Australia!! We pay double what everybody else in the world,
A nice flavour which has strong vanilla flavour, which I like, a little ice takes any harsh alcohol off the rum. A good option for the price point but possibly too much vanilla for some.
This is an outstanding contribution to rum from Foursquare. This is my first foray into their offerings and this landed at the top of my rums. Lacks the over sweet taste from many competitors but definitely not lacking in flavor and aroma. Grab yourself a bottle and enjoy.
This rum has the most delicious nose. Butterscotch, salted caramel.
This rum is a dream to sip. I can't believe there is no added sugar. The most amazing rum I've ever had.
Le nez est gras et fait ressortir principalement du beurre accompagné de caramel. Ça sent la pâtisserie, c’est gourmand mais ça peu être écœurant aussi, en tout cas je ne m’attendais pas à ça…
C’est doux en bouche, le caramel est toujours présent et une note boisée fait son apparition ainsi que de la coco.
La fin de bouche reste boisée mais ne parvient pas à faire oublier cette sensation de caramel au beurre.
Il vaut mieux être averti, ce rhum est loin de ce qu’on a l’habitude de boire en provenance de la Barbade. Il comblera ceux qui préfèrent les rhums faciles à boire, mais si vous préférez la complexité, passez votre tour.
What do we have here then? To be honest I don't know yet. It takes me longer to get used to the drier rums, as it did with Seale's 10 and Clement Agricole. The Zinfandel is apparent even to a novice, but I'll need a lot more time nosing this until I discover more as I did with Seale's. Tbc.......
I'm now getting the Seale's 10 flowery bouquet. Tastes better too. These rums are a refreshing change from the smoother, sweeter rums, when you're in the mood for something a bit more lively, fresher, The Zinfandel notes really add to the curiosity. I feel like I'll have to drink the whole bottle before I start getting to know it properly. Not tonight though!
"The finish is long and nicely oaked – the initial sweetness of the sip gives way to the oak and spice from the bourbon casks."
