Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I read many of the descriptions of Foursquare Spiced and decided to try it with some coke. As usual I order them separately to taste the rum straight prior to mixing. For the first time in my life I simply sipped on a spiced rum straight... It's that good! It's hard to believe, but then even better in Coke, likely the best rum I've mixed with Coke ever!
Lots of Carmel and vanilla in the nose, but not overwhelming and slightly mild. The taste is mild as well and sweet, no overpowering notes - similar in fact to Zaya. The finish is medium and seems to get better over time.
While it might lack some complexity of aged rums, this Foursquare Spiced is unbelievable for a spiced and likely minimal aged rum. Great value, strong buy recommendation.
As others have pointed out, there's a couple of other spiced rums that match this as a sipping rum, but in my opinion nothing that matches it as a mixer.
The vanilla is very, making it at but not sugary. The rum base is excellent, and the flavor is lovely but not so overwhelming it launches itself at you. And considering how good it is, it's surprisingly affordable. So you can burn through a whole bottle or two at a party (and you will, once people try it) without feeling hurt.
Fantastic with coke, ginger beer, or a good root beer (try A&W) .
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.
My favourite spiced rum, great smoothness and spices aromas! Perfect for mixing cocktails!
This is our favorite spiced rum. We visited the distillery in Barbados on our last trip there and could not get enough of this. Good thing the Total Wine in Cherry Hill, NJ carries this.
The finest rum to mix with coke.... Wow such a delight
This is a lovely very vanilla flavoured rum , nice with cola and a slice of lime
Certainly in my top 3 spiced rums alongside Chairmans and Element 8 but id say it's the sweetest and has the most vanilla. Try making a spiced Mojito with just a splash of pressed apple juice for a summer cooler.
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.
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.
Smell of raisins & stewed brandy with slight tones of cloves.
The taste is lovely and light to start with spice and peppers building.
Cinnamon and Vanilla are most dominant flavors with a peppery aftertaste. Good for on the rocks and great with cola.
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.
So smooth you'd expect a much higher price tag. A hit of spiced flavour the moment you drink it with no unpleasant after taste. Would happily drink this straight up or with a bit of coke
My favourite spiced rum by far ! Blows Sailor Jerry out of the water.. Very cheap here in N.Z (makes a pleasant change ) . A bit of a struggle to drink neat after the first couple of sips , but fantastic with a decent ginger beer . Bundaberg is my preferred choice , they make a great ginger beer but crap rum haha
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
J'aime bien un rhum épicé de temps à autre et j'ai essayé celui-ci chez un ami qui en a rapporté de la Barbade. Je l'ai trouvé très bon, un nez de vanille très présent, une longueur en bouche et ça en fait un rhum délicat avec ses 37,5 degrés en alcool.
Ça change des rhums épicés que l'on peut trouvé chez nous au Québec.
Je l'aime sec, sans glace.
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.
Smooth start to finish. I'm not usually big on spiced rums on the rocks but that's how I drink this. Inexpensive.
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.
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.
Low proof dessert rum. Delicious. Like eating spice cake. In a good way. Who’da thunk it?
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.
