Now this is some good stuff
I can see why Criterion put Foursquare solidly on the map. Exceptional aged full body dark brown rum lingering on the pallet for a full 5 minutes. Found on auction site makes collection complete.
Spectacular rum tasting with Falcon91Wolvrn03 continued with a rare Foursquare Criterion. Decent bottle and label design. Bright golden color. Sweeter and woodier than Destino. Plenty of woodiness and a dry burn at the end. Criterion is aged only 10y in Bourbon and Madeira Casks.
This is a masterpiece.After finishing a nice glass of Empery I decided to pour myself a bit of the Criterion before bed ...... good decision, wow,! Its smooth oaky majestic self just blew me away. Faint flavors of Carmel and smoky chocolate....So damned good! Not sweet but not dry. But, this isn’t Mamas Milk either, 56 % of mouth watering goodness! To bad it’s almost impossible to find, but if you do..... Grab it with two hands, take it home and consider yourself lucky!
If I would have rated this rum when i had it when it first came out, it would be a 10/10. I think though that it was very much ahead of it's time even in the ECS world and doesnt compare well to something like 2007. I would put Criterion just below 2005.
I'm a huge fan of all of Foursquare's rum and this one is my favorite yet. It has an amazing nose with raisin, dried fruit, oak and a hint of the Madeira wink barrels. The first sip goes down remarkably easy even though it's at 56%. You definitely taste the natural sweetness but the more complex flavors soon shine through with spice and oak. I really love this and wish I bought more than one bottle.
Flavorful with notes of chocolate, raisins, berries, spices, and toffee with a long soothing finish. Would love to see how this stacks up against the destino.
Prima rum die wat weg heeft van de Triptych. Caramel, tropisch fruit, gember, koffie en hout.
Aanrader, maar ja, dat geld eigenlijk voor al het Foursquare spul.
"Finish wise Criterion offers a long and satisfying experience. Again great balance, strong oak notes and plenty fruit and spicy zest."
