N- Calamansi and Guinness treacle aspic, cola. Despite spiced and diluted.... stylish and nice earthy characters still leading the pack. Well spiced flavoured coming along with juicy candy, sweet floral, tea-ish with nutty pistachio and coconut jelly. (86/20)
P- Frankly, this does not comes along as a good commercial spiced rum at all. But instead as an excellent sipping rum, cocoa powder, naturally oak-y and funky, creamy with bitter-ish spiciness for mouth coat of mineral, salts and unoffensive clean new make. (87/21)
F- Medium long, warming and waxy. Full at shamefully 37.5%, spiced with elegant utterly finesse. (87/21)
Weighted Rate- 85pt

This is not your typical mass-produced sweetened spiced rum, no, this stuff is so good you can drink it neat. Natural flavors and sweetness get it to another level. Greatest mixer for spiced rum cocktails for me. If on the other hand you like some other more popular rums out there, you might not want to try this one.
nuz, mal by to byt spiced rum, ale nie je to prilis citit, je suchy, pernikove korenie, zazvor, malo vanilky, na popijanie moc nie je, ale s kolou je fajn.
Low proof dessert rum. Delicious. Like eating spice cake. In a good way. Who’da thunk it?
Strong caramel flavour. Reminds me of biscoff, which is weird considering the lack of sweet finishing notes. Quite enjoyable if paired with a mixer.
Od tohoto rumu jsem nic necekal, ale jako fanousek Foursquare jsem citil povinnost ho ochutnat. Koreni je v celku vyrazne, ve vuni skorice a hrebicky. V chuti se k nim pridava i lehce stiplavy badian. Prekvapila me absence alkoholovehou stipnuti, coz dela rum trochu "plochy". Kazdopadne do chladneho vanocniho casu se rum hodi vyborne a muzu doporucit.
This rum has a great complexity and depth of flavor, it only didn’t get a 10 because of its sweetness.
It’s warm, with a soothing caramel. It would make it on to my desert island rums.
Its good one. High qualitative product from foursquare. But it’s tottaly “empty”. No individuality.
If we look on the price, I’ll can give 8. But I always give characteristics for Rum no matter what price it was.
And if you won’t you don’t need to mix it. This Rum is smooth enough. And plus for me - this Rum looks like is no sugar added.
I was suprised that a spiced rum could avoid kicking the forefront of my chief tasting weapons and bypass performing a lively squatthrust of cinnamon on my tongues back passage. In fact, what it did do was a light stretch on entry and nestle down for a mellow yoga set whilst sweating out a little vanilla settlement which joined my mind with my soul and made me smile like I was being tickled inside from the chest up wards. Pleasant and mellow for a spicy lady-don't mix, just sip and fix
Nothing wrong with this but i dont really get any spices.
Not a fan of spices rum but this is better than most cl9ves orange rind not so heavy on the vanilla
Smell of raisins & stewed brandy with slight tones of cloves.
The taste is lovely and light to start with spice and peppers building.
This is a tasty all-around rum, great for a rum & coke. I gave it an extra point because there are NO sugars added after distillation, which is a plus for someone on a low carb diet.
I started by pouring it neat. It's light in color, like an aged gold rum. The bouquet is very light with hints of vanilla and spice cake. The first sip hits you mid-tongue, and fills the back with a peppery flavor and just a little burn. It leaves behind just a little warmth and just a hint of spice cake.
In the end, this is a nice gold rum with hints of spice. It's great with cola, and without the sugar it will be my go-to for a Rum & Diet Coke.
My favourite spiced rum, great smoothness and spices aromas! Perfect for mixing cocktails!
I was disappointed with this. It's pretty uninspiring and, well....rough.... in fact I'd go as far as to say that is does taste a bit like petrol might - yuk. So sharp and harsh it makes you shudder.
As a spiced rum, it's dull; as a rum it's harsh, sharp and tastes foul. It has the traditional spice taste but not in any persuasive or inspiring way. The spices are neither subtle not strong, but kind of wishy-washy. I found nothing special in it at all, and think that the others I have tried - Red Leg, Chairman's Reserve, Rebellion and Dark Matter - are all way more interesting.
Frankly I found it undrinkable neat. You'd think that it would work as a mixer....but I still found it awful then.
The first rum I have not been able to finish a glass of neat.
Mix your Foursquare Spiced rum with your favorite sodas, and you will be doing just fine. At your own peril try this as a neat sipper rum and it will have a nasty alcohol smell to it and quite a burn. Foursquare Spiced rum actually might be a very tasty treat if aged 12-15 years more.
Not my favorite spiced. Not great as a sipper, ok as a mixer. I prefer drunken sailor to mix with, and Capt. 1671 or private stock to drink neat, or perhaps Bayou on crushed ice.
Made an original bottle and not a heavy rum, even a bit boring. The aroma is complex, little attractive. It tastes too tart, it's also the highlight of this drinkable rum.
I like this rum a lot. I normally do not drink spiced or flavored rums except for a few occasions when I want a change from the ordinary. This rum has a nice aroma and sweetness brought out by the warm baking spices, vanilla, toffee and some dried fruit notes. I enjoy this neat as you would. I guess you could mix it with coke but I feel the sweetness would be overwhelming.
Smooth start to finish. I'm not usually big on spiced rums on the rocks but that's how I drink this. Inexpensive.
Excellent rum! Very good flavour, a nice level of spice, and very smooth. Easy to drink neat and enjoy the taste. I only bought a small 25cl sampl bottle, so I definitely need to buy a full bottle soon. Hard to rate correctly after such a small taste, but I'm gonna go with an 8 for now until I try more.
Alkohol: 37,5 %
Aroma: Čekal jsem bohatě navoněného slaďouše, ale aroma je decentní. Vanilka, lihovost, hřebíček, cedr. Trocha skořice na závěr. (83 b)
Chuť: Není nijak přehnaně sladký, ani kořeněný. Nebýt to na něm napsáno, ani bych nepoznal ochucený rum. Vanilka, jemná peprnost, dub, krémovost, nové koření. Dozvuk suchý, krémový. (83 b)
Shrnutí: Ochutnal jsem v Pivnici U Čolka v Brně-Žabovřeskách, kde mají velmi pěknou rumovou nabídku, odhadem asi 150-170 druhů. Nějak mě tento spiced rum ničím nezaujal. Ale na rozjezd ochutnávky a naladění čichových i chuťových buněk v pořádku.
The first rum I have enjoyed, lots of spice and vanilla, for this price point my goto rum
