Tasty, but not quite great
This rum is the corolla of rums here in Barbados. Abundant, affordable and the value stays for years. When you want a $5 rum and coke in Barbados make sure the bartender pours this and not eclipse. This rum isn't good enough, its good and there is more than enough! It is unfortunate Bacardi Gold was on the bar, Michael.
Foursquare 5y old rum.
I was surprised by this rum. I expected a young and harsh rum. I mean Foursquare can make rum, not question about that, I enjoyed also the 8y old and the XO. But I don't get much from the label and thought that's a usual alcohol for mixing. But I got a good natural and mild rum, with nice flavours.
It's not complex, don't expect too much.
The flavours are not very intensive, but when you are an natural rum lover try this one.
You get good value for the price. It's in some ways similar to CDI West Indies.
Smell: vanilla, caramel, citrus, white oak
Taste: vanilla, citrus, oak (slightly bitter), some fruits (slightly orange) in the background, light spicy
Finish: short, slightly spice
Value (20€): 2/5
RL Seale/Foursquare continues to come up with consistently excellent rums, Old Brigand being pretty good. Unfortunately there are better rums in their stable which provide better satisfaction at the same price point
