Bottled at 46% aged in madeira & bourbon casks. Unadultraded rum from what I am quickly realizing as the vanguard rum distillery Four Square form Barbados. If you see it get it without hesitation.
Fantastic limited barrel aged rum. An absolute no brainer buy.

The Madeira really shines. Smooth coconut like mouth feel

I have a problem with private branding of others products, even if it slightly changed. This is no FourSquare, just an over priced rum with an extra middle man and marketting company. Why not just buy the real deal from the guy who makes it. Don’t get me wrong it was a decent full body dark aged real rum with some character, but not an 8, 9, 10

The bump in proof really makes this shine. The sweetness (created without additives, just impressive use of barrels) is absolutely perfect. My favorite style of rum, if you can call it that, are these wine finished spirits that impart sweetness while not being sweet. Masterfully done.

The color is dark, probably imparted by the Madeira casks. The nose hits you with coconut, plums, brown sugar, subtle overly ripe bananas, sweet tobacco and leather. Given a little time, it's extremely inviting. Apart from the Madeira ageing, this is also a slightly beefed up version of the original 12 year, weighing in at 46% vol. The taste is very full and devolps quickly with dark notes of leather, tobacco, roasted coconut, and slightly spicy pepper. There's an underlying and rounded sweetness underpinning the power perfectly. This is bloody good and pure old barbadian rum. Love it.

I had this side by side with the Real McCoy 12-Year and I think they're both very similar and very close. I slightly prefer the regular Real McCoy 12-Year.

I find that stronger rums are better if they're very highly rated to me, and this one is right on the borderline where the regular version is still just barely better to me.

Smells and tastes of oak, bourbon, caramel, and spice. Smooth for 46%abv. Almost a tie with regular 12-Year, though again I slightly prefer that one.

The color is lighter brown hue, the label claims no "artificial colors or additives", so if something "natural" like tannin infusion was used, I cannot say. I would not mind, since color adjustments is defacto standard practice of the industry, bar some independent bottlers.

The nose is intense and pleasant, especially after adding a splash of water (recommended, since it's a 46 ABV rum), harmonious notes of gingerbread, apricots, dried apples.

The palate is on the sweet side, more apricots, brown cake, brown sugar, some vanilla, with pronounced Madeira cask influence, tempered by tannin astringency from the oak, medium-bodied with lingering, pleasant, warm finish.

The main selling point is the perfect harmony of this rum, both on the nose and on the palate. Currently my favorite rum.

Velice příjemný, dobře pitelný FQ. S nejlepšími rumy z této palírny soupeřit asi nemůže, ale doporučuji ochutnat.

This is a rougher type of rum from Barbados from the famous Foursquare distillery at 40% strength. The rum was aged for 12 years in oak bourbon barrels.

Bottle: Classic whiskey shape
Colour: Dark Amber
Nose: Intense and very pleasantly sweetish. Aromas of caramel, baked apples with lemon, vanilla, spices (cloves, pepper) and later oak wood wafted from the glass.
Taste: Dry and harsh at first, then mellowing on the palate. After sipping, I smelled bitter cocoa, wood and pepper. The bitterness is noticeable, but surprisingly not unpleasant.
Finish: Medium to long.

Summary: The product is more suitable for lovers of drier rums. I guess my earlier preference for sweeter types is starting to change, but I really enjoyed this rum. The main characteristics are: sweet aroma, dry and smooth taste.

Overall rating: 8.5 out of 10
