....which I do, then this will appeal.

I've got most of the Foursquare bottlings, and I thought that the closest to this would be the R.L Seale 10yo, as both the same age and same 46% ABV

Now I like the R.L. Seale for its purity, but comparing the two, the Real McCoy 10yo has a softer, richer nose and longer palate. There is a lot more oak both on the nose and body. By comparison the RL Seale has a harshness to it . The McCoy is a nicer rum, is 89% more expensive (from the importer) than the RL Seale, and I don't think that difference is justifiable. I know that virgin casks are more expensive etc, but still.

I guess I don't really understand the Real McCoy in that I think Richard Seale makes beautiful rums as it is. It seems (and I might be wrong) that you're just paying the Real McCoy's mark-up on top of Foursquare's mark-up thus making it much more expensive from the great rums available from Doorly's/Foursquare, which you'd do just as well buying. In fact this 10yo is 20% more expensive than the Doorly's 14yo!!

I thought that I should try the various Real McCoy bottlings given that you hear good things, but I won't be buying again because they are very over priced. I'll stick with Doorly's and Foursquare OBs. To be honest, the rum is an 8, but the price/value is poor.

I tried this with the Real McCoy 12-Year, and the Real McCoy Limited Edition 12-Year (a 46% version of the regular 12-year). I like both of the 12-Years better.

It's interesting to me because I'm not a huge fan of bourbon aging, but after a few comparisons of bourbon aging vs virgin cask aging (such as with the Mount Gay Origin Series), I think I prefer bourbon aging to virgin cask aging.

Smells and tastes of oak, caramel, spice, and vanilla. Nicely smooth, and dry/semi-sweet. My favorite Real McCoy is the regular (40%) 12-Year.

I think this may be a bit sweeter than the 14yr. Not by much just slightly. It is slightly lighter in amber hue compared with the 14yr. I picked this one up for about $65 which was about $50 less than the 14yr. I definitely recommend. The taste of the 10yr is slightly hot which dissipates shortly after the initial taste. I get a slight oak flavor. Definitely not heavy on a whiskey flavor. The 14yr is slightly more bourbon/ whiskey notes. I would purchase again.

Virgin Oak gives it a real woody taste that turnstile rum more into a whisky feel,

(Please forgive me if I've gotten the name wrong; I tried it on it's first day of availability and did not get a chance to see the bottle.)

46% ABV. Sweet nose. Dry. Lots of oak! Long finish.

Great rum. Always a pleasure to try one aged in new oak. Not necessarily my favorite, but very interesting, with easy comparisons to whiskey. A great rum for whiskey drinkers.

8, 8-
