Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
On est sur du très très lourd, c'est fort, excessif, puissant, intense (en même temps les 59° sont marqués sur l'étiquette). Des petits piments qui chatouillent d'entrée, une profondeur dans le gosier pour terminer. Des lèvres à tremper dedans, assurément !
Ça mérite bien un 9,5 !
I found a bottle in California and wish I bought more. I am a huge fan of almost all Foursquare rum and this one of my favorites.
I had some in a snifter, which made getting an aroma tricky since it is at 59% ABV. The bourbon smell comes through, and a bit of a smell like almonds.
As to be expected, it's hot on the palette, and has a sweetness that fades, then returns at the finish, that settles into a slightly astringent flavor. A woody flavor and a bit of cherry follow the sweetness.
This is a great rum for spirit-forward cocktails, but with the high abv, I'd definitely consider something like a tonic or seltzer to ease the burn. A great rum for the price.
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 full strength rum had to sit in the glass for a good 20 mins before approaching it ! Not an every day rum unless you see climbing the stairs to bed as a challenge ! Wow , great fruity , spicey aroma , cant believe it tastes so sweet without added sugar , almost sherry sweet , beautiful stuff. Lots of bourbon flavours present which usually im not a big fan of. Plenty of heat in the mouth but no harsh burn and a fantastic long finish. I tried another with ice then mixed a small amount of cola... dont !! Only perfect neat. I've enjoyed all 3 of these RL Seale cask offerings... Quality , quality rums , more please Richard.
This is one amazing rum. If you can find a bottle you must pick it up!
Sipping neat: First rum to take my breath away. Very pleasant aroma and no nose burn considering the high ABV.
First sip exploded with flavors in my mouth and literally took my breath away. Very spicy and very long finish.
Denne rom bære meget præg af Bourbon fadet og en rigtig god styrke. Den er skal smages et par gange, mens en vokser med tiden.
God rom med masser af smag.
This single-vintage blended rum is a combination of pot-still and column-still rums aged for 11 years in American-oak bourbon casks. Intense and sweet with notes of dried fruit, chocolate and smoke.
There may be come e150. But this is great. There is a dark chocolate note in the rear of the pallet, be aware of it, it is delicious.
Cask strength and very strong. But smooth enough to sip straight. Nose of spices, dried fruit, chocolate, etc. and of course bourbon. Great rum for those that like whiskey but want to try something different.
A bourbon finish for a very nice rum with pastry notes and exotic fruit vanilla is of course very present too. The alcohol is not too present and leaves a beautiful length in the mouth on the exotic fruits. Real rate : 7,5
nose -- oaky, creamy, vanilla, medicinal; after adding water, leather
palate -- need to add quite a bit of water to cut down the alcohol bite. candy sweetness, a hint of oak. dry wood bitterness in the after taste.
Strong on toasted oak. Solid body. Dry, a bit spicy. A good rum for whisky drinkers. Otherwise, meh.
ABV: 59 %
Fles: 3cl (MoM Dram)
Barbados op zijn best en weer te danken aan Richard Seale.
Gelijk een fles van besteld.
59 full proof!! This is rum as it is ment to be. It is very complex. Both the flavour and the nose. I love sweet and "mainstream" rum. But this is something else. Back to basics so to speak. Fantastic!!!
