Lækker rom. Helt klart endnu et godt produkt af Habitation Velier serien.

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.

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.

Une réussite

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.

Le foursquare 2013 est le résultat d’une alliance entre Luca Gargano et Richard Seale. C’est un vrai « pure single rhum » avec une distillation en « pot still » puis un affinage de 2 ans dans des anciens fûts de cognac, tout ça dans la distillerie foursquare à la Barbade. A la sortie le rhum est embouteillé « brut de fut », c’est à dire sans distillation ni ajout de quoi que ce soit. Au nez je sens une odeur de cave en terre humide avec déjà le cognac qui montre sa présence. En bouche ce rhum est plutôt doux avec une puissance qui montre progressivement mais qui reste très agréable malgré ses 64°. Ce n’est pas un allume feu comme le sont beaucoup de rhum 2 ans d’âge. La langue est réchauffée mais reste grasse et huileuse, tout comme j’aime bien ;-) Le final est sur des notes de chocolat, tabac, amande. J’aurais juste aimé plus de longueur.
The 2013 foursquare is the result of an alliance between Luca Gargano and Richard Seale. It is a real "pure single rum" with a distillation in "pot still" and then a aging of 2 years in ex-cognac’s barrels, all that in the foursquare’s distillery in Barbados. This rum is bottled "brut de fut", that means straight from the cask, unchillfiltered, without any addition of anything. On the nose I smell wet soil cellar with already the cognac that shows its presence. In the mouth this rum is rather sweet with a power that shows gradually but remains very pleasant despite its 64 °. This is not “gasoline like” as are many 2 years old rums. The tongue is heated but remains greasy and oily, just what I like ;-) The final is on flavours of chocolate, tobacco, almond. I would have liked a longer aftertaste.
