Tasty, but not quite great
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
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.
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.
