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 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.
Facile à Trouver et vraiment abordable. Ce n'est pas mon Foursquare préféré mais il est indispensable à toute collection !
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.
Dejlig rom, kryderi, karamel, mazipan, træ og en snert af vin.
Ingen tilsat sukker.
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!
nose -- fruity, hint of wine cask ( I happen to own two ). cream, vanilla,
palate -- balanced candy sweetness and bitterness. clean, fresh,
This is one of the interesting rums, where all the flavours are 100% natural
Surprisingly sweet without added sugar. Strong vanilla and marzipan flavour.
Rum molto morbido ed equilibrato con un gusto caramelloso per niente fastidioso. Anche se non è il mio genere preferito devo ammettere che è di ottima qualità.
Pleasant rum ! Foursquare really never disappoints
Beautiful rum with butterscotch,caramel, toffee and coffe aroma and some fruity notes.In mouth, the pastry take the lead with lot of fruits, vanilla and oaky notes and slightly bitter. Long aftertaste. Never taste that before, very interesting.
Kleur: Bruine Rum
ABV: 43 %
Fles: 3cl (MoM Dram)
Deze mooie rum heeft vijf jaar op bourbon vaten gerijpt en nog eens zes jaar op Californische Zinfadel wijnvaten.
Er is geen suiker en/of kleurstoffen toegevoegd.
Zeer zachte alcohol burn, licht zoet, medium body. molasses, hout, brood, rozijnen en tropisch fruit proef ik. Lange nasmaak.
Weer een aanrader van Foursquare.
molasses. dry rum. 43% 86 proof
i smell elements of almond with a fruity unerlayer.
i taste marzipan and sweet fruit at the start. then it turns into apricot and peppery notes with the finish of sweet grapes.
10/10 - drop 5 points if you love the real sweet stuff on the rum market.
worth every cent.
in the whole this rum is real good. soft and mild with elements of almond and some cherry. fruity with a touch of apricot. very smooth. mild peppery notes.
a masterpiece. the aging in the zinfandel cask makes the difference especially at the start!
one of the best rums i met in 2016 :).
Nose: Summer fruit pudding, bags of strawberries, raspberries and plums. Some definite oak but light and soft oak, delicate caramel, vanilla and some molasses. Some spirity notes and a touch of varnish. The nose it at one time light, fruity and floral, slightly grassy and then at the same time you can feel deep brooding pudding smells are lurking. It’s a nose that makes you want to take a big mouthful of the waiting rum.
Palate: Thick, full mouth feel, coating but not cloying. Sweet delivery with loads and loads of fruit, you can really get the wine casks in this. Strawberries, raspberries and plums again, some pomegranate, and then a big whoosh of candy floss/cotton candy. Oaky mid-palate and then moves on to toffee, butterscotch, butter and baking spices. There is a little touch of licorice, vanilla pod and something almost savory in there too hiding at the back; paprika or Garam Marsala. Dry coconut as things move to the finish.
Finish: Long. Drier than the palate but still sweet. Strawberries and fresh whipped cream, milk chocolate and maple. That coconut from the end of the palate stays into the finish and then it starts to get spicy with some white pepper, clove and a touch of ginger but it never bitters.
