Now this is some good stuff
This was my first Foursquare experience and it did not disappoint! The nose explodes with chocolate dates fibs and berries! Not overly sweet and what I have come to love even more is nothing added!! They are doing it right down in Barbados and have converted me back to rum from Whiskey! Cheers to you Mr. Seale and Co.
Definitely one of my favourite with much complexity. It reaches a point where I'm not able to fully describe it's amazing flavour.
Aroma of salted caramel pop corn. After breathing for a minute to two, it tends to be more to be more oaky and fruity with notes of tropical fruits; coconut husk, coconut flesh, banana.
Complexity of creamy dark chocolate with dried coconut, fruitiness and sourness of fresh cherry wrapped with spiciness of cinnamon once sipped.
Finishing was the bomb. Fresh cut sawdust and cedar wood with cherries. Warm gingery after feel which goes very well with the oakiness.
only a tiny little sip is needed to fill nose, mouth and sinuses with joy! 59% yet totally balanced, currently my personal no1
This comes highly recommended by a lot of enthusiasts, so I was looking forward to trying it. I didn't notice the ABV on the label, however, and find the burn of the over-proof strength (59% ABV) was a bit much for me.
Poured neat, it has a nice aroma of apples and honey with a hint of licorice. On the first sip, the strength hits your tongue with a lot of flavor, but a bit of burn. It leaves behind the flavors of the bourbon and oak, with that hint of licorice. It's better on ice, where you can pick up a bit more oak and honey.
If you like over-proofs, this is a good one, but if you tend to like sweeter or smoother rums, you may want to wait before jumping in.
I really wanted this to be a 9 or a 10, but it just has too much alcohol burn for me. It had a strong smell, but I was hoping it did not translate into the mouth. It was not as much, but still noticeable. I'll have to say that all of my Doorly experiences have been much better and I still think Seale and Foursquare are some of the tops in the business.
This rum has a heavy bourbon flavor. Very strong at 59%abv, but good.Bottled at cask strength and bursting with flavors and aromas of sun-dried fruit, spice, wood, cocoa...and more. so delicious but is too strong
Sampled over 2" clear ice cube in rock glass.
118 proof, yellow gold color
Nose - light.
Palate linger - medium. Continues to dwell on tongue
Bite - none. Very smooth
Much like a sweet high end bourbon. Needs 5 minutes in glass to mellow and develop.
Educational to know what a true unadulterated 11 YO rum looks and tastes like.
Mark 3 of the exceptional cask series from Foursquare: blend of pot and column stills aged 11years in Bourbon casks, bottled unsweetened at 59% (!)
Standard Doorly's bottle with screw cap.
Nose: subtle dried bananas and raisins but nose-tickling alcohol
Mouth: oh my - initial bouquet of dried fruit blends into restrained smoky/woody notes as the alcohol puts a sunrise in your mouth
Burn: slow, intense, sustained. It's BIG but not sharp with a spiritey finish.
In summary: one for when the mood is right. I prefer the port and Zinfandel finishes, which are more accessible but this has serious class.
"Familiar notes of vanilla and dark chocolate The finish is long and satisfying – oaked and gently warming."
