Now this is some good stuff
Explosion of flavors is the best way to describe this rum. A whiff of cinnamon tempers the 59% full strength nose. The taste reveals a complex blend of fruit and spice, with hints of leather and cocoa. This is a truly outstanding sipping rum.
It's Foursquare and it is amazing! It's rums like this one that causes me to pause and consider all the ones that I have tasted before it; to consider other highly rated ones...if those are a 10 and this is(obviously) above those, how do I rate it? Simple, this one goes to 11!
This rum lives up to the hype with flavors of chocolate, coffee, peppermint, barrel spices, pepper, and a little dried fruit, caramel, and vanilla. Got it for $93 including shipping and taxes.
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.
Barbados is Called the birthplace of rum, and i am easily convinced that this is how rum is meant to be. Mr. Seale deserves the highest recognition and respect for releasing this masterpiece without adding colours, sugar and not even water. Pure cask strenght rum. And unlike many other "golddigger" editions this is not a limited, numbered edition only for the collector, but accessable for every true pirat out there at an extremely reasonable price.
There is not much to say here. Bottled 59% full proof lets you choose how straight or thinned out you like it. Pot and Column blend plus 11 years bourbon barrel aging gives full depth of flavors and nose. Tropical fruits, black cherries and almonds, tobacco, chocolate, slight hints of funk.... it's all in there. No added sugar and flavors. Only the basic process of distilling and aging and then bottled at cask strength!! Priced right too. This is what rum is. Not some watered down flavored overly sweet easy and smooth piss.
True pure Bajan rum. If thats what you are looking for than you simply can not go wrong here.
What a fantastic rum, I had to pour myself another glass immediately...the smell, the taste, the thickness...even the colour.. instantly fall in love with it...
So diverse, so tasty...really one of the most surprising rums I have tasted so far...almost afraid now to empty the bottle :)
It basically instantly jumped into the Top 5 best list and secured a spot!
I usually am a real fan of sugared rum, yet this treasure shows you what fine rum making is all about.
☆☆☆ 9.5 to a 10 ☆☆☆
It seems that every single rum coming out of Foursquare can be rated as at least very good. Many of them are among the best that you can buy at any price. This is clearly one of those - it's among the best rums produced by RL Seale. Bottled at cask strength and bursting with flavors and aromas of sun-dried fruit, spice, wood, cocoa...and more...it's very strong but immensely enjoyable when sipped straight. So many rum reviews - on this site and others as well - will describe a rum as being good for whiskey-lovers or cognac-drinkers. Well, this one is a real treat for rum-lovers!
My first rum that caught me, vanilla, brown sugar, banana, caramel, light oak and spice, sweet but not sugary or cloying. Abv is hidden. I know it is bourbon finished and I am coming from a whisky drinking background so I am “supposed” to like this, but..... holy damn does it ever scratch the itch well for a enjoyable pour that isn’t whisk(e)y
"Familiar notes of vanilla and dark chocolate The finish is long and satisfying – oaked and gently warming."
