Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Good winter sipper. I feel nicely warmed. Plan to have more!
The Zinfandel Cask is an other great pot and column blend that goes toe to toe with the other four square expressions! It isn't the dark fruit and berries that I get from the others in the Foursquare lineup but is more of a light tropical fruit, which again is nothing to complain about on a hot and humid day! My palate tends to favor the deeper dark flavors otherwise this would land another 10 from me!
This one is mostly dried fruit for me (apricot?). Maybe a hint of pear. The finish has a very mild toffee sweetness. It has a full, rich flavor, yet it's quite smooth with nothing harsh or off-putting. One of those rums I could sip until the end of time.
Namely: When you smell at it, it is lovely, fruity and tasty. It ist still so in the mouth, but only after one has absorbed the shock of cask strength. It keeps a pretty long, fruity aftertaste, too.
Just that it lacks a bit of character, of a definet taste is kind of pity.
Denne rom er nok ikke til nybegyndere der forventer en sød rom. Den er lidt tør men bestemt god. Jeg tror jeg ville rate den højere, hvis jeg fik smagt den noget mere. God rom, hvis man vil prøve at komme væk fra det søde rom og over til noget mere “rigtigt” rom
Stopped in at one of my favourite spirit stores (Drinkmonger, Pitlochry, Scotland) to buy something for the weekend and settled on Plantation Stiggins Pinapple. The woman serving and I got chatting and she recommended this. It's excellent, a far departure from the Stiggins and the likes of Diplimatico which I love. This is smooth, interesting yet not overly sweet. A great rum to add to the collection.
Un "très bon Foursquare" c'est un pléonasme. Encore une réussite du coté de la Barbade avec pour particularité dans cette bouteille un final vraiment dans l’extrême rondeur.
En anden rom hvor det desværre er for lang tid siden at jeg har smagt den til at jeg rigtigt kan huske det.
Fortjener en opfrisker, men husker den som lidt væk fra det helt søde jeg eller normalt er meget til
Într-adevăr o experiență deosebită, foarte echilibrat și extraordinar de bun!
A great sipper ! Sweet, but not to sweet.
Would be a great rum for people who like whisky.
And i know some people do love it because it hasn't got added sugers.
For me personaly it doesn't matter, i like sugar added rums also.
This is another fantastic aged rum from Foursquare. It’s naturally sweet, has little burn, leaves a long warming aftertaste that makes the throat glow. Long finish at the back of the mouth.
Starts off with a great aroma on the nose - very sweet with a noticeable hint of grape.
Flavor is unique - starts off sweet, then a bit of spice with a not so subtle zinfandel finish. My first impression was that it was not what I had hoped, but the flavor grew on me. A bit on the dry side, but not horribly so. Definite drinker and sipper, opens up wonderfully with an ice ball and a few minutes to breathe.
I really dont like this style, but this one is surprisingly good.
I find herbs and spices to be really dominant here. Aftertaste should be a bit longer in order to give it 9.
Very "powerful" but well-balanced rum. Good price/quality ratio!
this rum has a very Special finish in a Zifandel Wine Cask. Nice taste.
Very easy going rum. Is sweeter (not sweetend!l than most other Foursquare rums, which makes it very easy to drink.
Nejlepe vonici rum, co jsem kdy ochutnal. Karamel, maslo, kokos, ovoco. Proste nadhera. Chut sucha, dub, karamel, kokos. Pokracuje v pepr. Dozvuk dlouhy a prijemny.

Can't go wrong with this one. I liked it just a little more that I recall I liked the port. So, a nine it is!
I noticed that this rum comes off a little harsh from the bottle. But let this sit in the glass for a bit and the esters burn off. It becomes a beautiful and floral drink. A unique specimen for your rum shelf.
Immediately a favorite! It got complexity -plenty of it...
A lovely flavour with the natural flavours of the zinfandel grapes giving the rum a sweetness without any added sugar, great choice
This reminded me very much of the popular Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, without the 30 grams of sugar added, so it's much more lively and you won't nuke your tastebuds with sugar, so you will be able to taste something after one drink. Lots of toffee, cookie dough, vanilla, cinnamom and baking spices. Very accesible smooth rum even for novice drinkers. Can't go wong with this one.
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.
