Now this is some good stuff
Velier has another fine bottling here. Rum ester on the nose. Not as hot as I expected for the ABV. Naturally sweet - no sugar added. Rum flavor at the start, a really short mids (hard to pull in, an "umami" thing perhaps?), and then a "roasted" anise flavor on the finish, which had some length. I say "roasted" anise, as it's not as sharp as a typical anise flavor, this is more mellow and mature.
What a rum. Full of aroma, barrel proof 64%. The first sip makes you feel like you fell into the cask, being surrounded by more than a nosefull of dry fruits and roasted nuts. I also taste butter and caramel and a bit of oak in the aftertaste, but all well balanced. Of course it's strong, but still very mild. I used it in a Mai Tai with only high quality ingredients like Clement Orange shrubb and a Montebello 6 years, it was 'out of this world'!
Even if this one is 64* this is not the most agressive one that I drank. It keeps the taste firm but not too much. Only slightly negative point is the fact that its aftertaste is not that long.
Sur le papier on est sur du sans fautes : Foursquare & Luca Gargano, c'est comme un crossover de Star Wars et Star Trek mais au final on a quelque chose d'à la fois trop fort et à la fois trop léger. N'y allons pas par quatre chemin : je n'ai pas aimé et je m'en vais regarder un western spaghetti, un peu vieillot mais une valeur sure.
This Young beast got two years in the ex-cognac cask. It would have been interesting to taste a unaged Foursquare. Both the unaged jamaicans, the Marie-Galante and the Port-morant in this serie kick some ass. I don’t assume the two years has done any/enough good to this rum, and i do not know If white Barbados has anything to offer. But both Seale and Velier have shown that a Foursquare can be transferred into some fantastic rums. This one lacks some depth, like it’s unfinished, missing the marriage with the added notes from the cask.
Bought a bottle of Habitation Velier Foursquare 2013 while vacationing in Martinique. Very nice and high end packaging, bottle and label design. Golden color. Traditional Bajan flavors are complemented with spices, pepper and plenty of oak to the nose and palate. Strong and dry burn at the end.
"It’s a very rich, very flavourful rum. It has a really nice smokey finish which definitely leaves you wanting more."
