N- Fresh with cooling mints, good that it is not as harsh as anticipated from the hefty ABV at young age. Probably distilled with very slow pace on a tall stills. Plenty of ester extraction, waxy red apple skins with crisp citrus. Soft prunes and raisins.from the cask. Mellow and solid. (22/25)

P- Fragrant of milk chocolate, sour caramel with thick prune fruits. Mouth watering lemon/lime citrus zest. Layer of phenolic bitter vanilla added a welcoming dimensions to the palate. Smooth. (23/25)

F- Long, drift of dried fruits of cognac. Velvet coats of spiciness, light texture, may not carry lots of depth and loud with the high strength, but rather pleasant, juicy with plenty of briny fresh citrus zest. (22/25)

Balanced:- Ya, it does burns slightly, but with plenty of lifted citrus notes, and no sugar added..... (22/25)

Weighted Rate:- 89pt

Toto je rum,kde som pri prvom dusku neveril,že pijem Foursquare. Naozaj drzák,mladý a krásne výrazný. Ovocie,malicko technický a na pozadí karamel. Úplne iný FSQ ako ostatné, veľmi sa podaril a baví ma

Riktigt god rom, smaken är helt fantastisk men inte galet stark som det kan bli ibland med hög procent.

This special bottling is unlike any other Foursquare I’ve tried. The best description I can think of is like Appleton Estate but on steroids.

It’s strong, has a fair amount of spice and a lingering burn. I’m not yet able to add any flavor notes, because while it has them, I can’t identify them at all. I’ll revisit this as I have more experience.

It’s delicious, best served neat (ice does nothing for this rum), and leaves with you with the impression you’re just not good enough for this expression :)

Edit@ Upon further review, I’ve identified notes of olive, banana, and pepper. Sounds odd but it isn’t.

100% Pot still
Distilled 2013
Bottled 2015
Aged 2 years in cognac casks
Sugar free
Unchillfiltered
Uncoloured
Barrel proof 64%abv

Nose: Quite cocnagey, grapes, vanilla, caramel, black pepper, damp oak, interesting savoury notes and glue

Palate: First thing that hits you is the hefty alcohol bite and glue that is wrapped in hot black pepper and caramel with cocnag notes, with water diluted to about 35%abv you get lot more nutty and spice flavors, wallnuts pecan, cinnamon allspice, clove, also oak vanillins and some savoury notes again.
This is surprisingly oaky rum, you get a strong amount of oak to balance the flavours, i guess they used really high quality casks when making this rum to get such a strong oak profile with only 2 years.
Finish: Oaky, nutty dryness with some almost tannic aromas on back palate. Flavours linger pleasantly for quite a long time, with mouth watering oaky dryness.
This is a beast of a rum, this rum hasnt been fermentated in a super estery way so it doesnt have a big ester profile but it is still interesting in its own merits, super punchy and packed with natural flavour and mouth watering oakiness.

As with most of the Habitation Velier Foursquare 2013 rum releases it is quite experimental and different even againt the “normal” Foursquare releases. It won’t be a rum for everyone.

Despite the very high ABV it doesn't have the normal "alcohol" nose that other high ABV rums often have. You a lot of dried fruit coming through immediately. The first taste you get a lot of oak but also sweetness and that's what makes this rum so interesting and complex. While I normally never add any water to my rums I think a few drops in this one helps brings out the complexity even more. Great rum!

This is a great offering and example on how Foursquare can make a tremendous 100% pot still. PLEASE MAKE MORE!
