Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is a large disappointment , four square did several special edition releases and awesome this is one . The flavour notes are very heavy sherry oak flavours due to the years in the cask, this was not to my liking and I would avoid it as for the price point of £49 a bottle of plantation 20 year is only slightly more money but well worth that value ...
I loved everything about this bottle, starting with the nose that is both fruity and spicy. The first taste had a little more strength than I was expecting but it only added to the complexity of the rum. Taste of spice, fruit and wine all came shining through on subsequent tastes. This is easily one of Foursquare's best "sipping" rums. If I had anything negative to say is that it was a little more expensive than their previous "exceptional casks series" but I think that was more the liquor store's fault than the distillers. Trust me, if you can find a bottle buy it quickly!
There hasn't been a Foursquare Rum I do not like. This one is one of the best sipping rums in my collection. From the first sip, it has that exceptional taste of spice, fruit, and wine. I love what Foursquare has brought to the table with this one and would recommend it over and again.
Don't get me wrong, we are talking about the pinnacle of rums, and comparing against the Zinfandel 11yo and Port 9yo that I so loved. A good dollop of sherry both on the nose and in the mouth, but I can't help but think that it might be better at 43% rather than 46%. There is an ever so slight edge of alcohol to this one.
It's good, but no where near as appealing as the Zinfandel cask.
Having had the bottle open for a wee bit longer......the 46% is fine. However, I am used to the ZInfandel cask, and this rum lacks the natural sweetness that that one has. Its hard for this rum, seeing that it is being compared directly to the brilliant Zin cask. It is a brilliant rum in its own right, just not quite as good as Foursquare can do.
Didn’t think this rum was available in my area, stumbled upon one bottle on a shelf at the local store. Very nice rum, pretty good strength with a lingering burn, nice and sweet with not too much oak.
Great addition to my collection.
The first thing I noticed was the oak when I lifted the glass to my nose. I get a lot of chocolate on the front end and a nice warmth on the back end.
Nice rum, excellent mouth and finish. Enjoyed the true rum flavor, what i like about Foursquare is that they produce true rum with no after flavoring. This is a mans rum, very little sweet, hints of light and dark fruits. Has similarities to whiskey and tastes best neat.
Absolutely without a doubt worth the price. I’m not a big fan of giving tasting note. It’s sips smooth and the aroma are just so complex and pleasant. I was lucky to get a taste of it at a rum bar in the BVI and now I screwed. I can’t find it anywhere near me.
This is a delicious example of perfection from blending. Like a good whiskey, they found ways to have so many flavored happen at so many points through the drink. Start to Finish it's wonderful.
Nice bottle with great info on the label. A wonderful colour with a bit of Sherry influence. The Sherry starts the nose but soon gives way to an aged rum with plenty of cask. Tasting is a quality dry rum with Sherry notes and wonderful cask age. There is a burn due to the 46 abv but a great long finish. $84 at LCBO is a good price but I think at that price there are better sippers.
Very dry rum, not sweet at all, spicy at a first taste, after two or three sip you can definitely taste the sherry. Maybe too much sherry for my taste, not a typical bajan rum, if that is what you are looking for.
Purchased at Astor Wines in NYC for $69. Upon sniffing for the first time, you could really smell the sherry overtones. First sip is welcoming - very smooth but it reminds you this is a higher than normal ABV of 46%. Very nice sherry finish. Very enjoyable.
Haven’t had any of the other Foursquare products, but this is top shelf stuff. Full flavoured and an excellent sipping rum.
I've tried a few Foursquare rums now, including the 2004 at 59% ABV, and this is the only one I've needed to add water to. I don't view that as a positive, and neither does my esophagus (although my throat is strangely fine with it). The flavor is quite pleasant--after a few drops of water, that is. It's less fruity than the Zinfandel; maybe more baking spice-like. The aftertaste is short, though. I'd say it's a 7 out of the bottle, and an 8 if you add a couple of drops of water per ounce.
Enjoyed a bottle of Foursquare Premise Rum while vacationing in Sedona AZ. Nice bottle and label design. Golden color. Plenty of Sherry and wine flavors to the nose and palate when neat sipped mixed with strong oakiness. Surprisingly dry burn at end. Not my cup of tea.
Som vanligt god, prisvärd. Säkert kort. Utan socker.
A limited rum by Foursquare that is aged for 3 years in ex-bourbon barrels followed by another 7 years in ex-sherry barrels and bottled at 46%ABV.
I believe this rum is limited to 8000 bottles in the us as 8000 bottles in the UK.
Notes of grapes, green apple, vanilla, oak, spice balance out this rum remarkably so that you don’t feel like your drinking a Zacapa or Diplomatico with the added sugar.
Won’t be around long so be sure to get your bottle. Kind of like getting one of Wonka’s Golden Tickets.
Very nice enjoyed neat!
Belle couleurs Ambré/orangé assez clair
Nez : douce odeurs boisés
Bouche : boisée, légèrement épicé, cacao?Belle structure et équilibre
Vieillissement Bourbon, Maturation Sherry
Note générale :7,8
Note gamme 45-60 euros : 8,3
Excellent on the rocks with a tiny tiny splash of tonic..with no lime/lemon. Smooth and most enjoyable. HOWEVER, if U look at the age and price of this rum in comparison to the Kirk and Sweeney 23, then the Kirk and Sweeney wins hands down. One of my new hot spots serves the Premise at a very reasonable price so I’ll continue to enjoy it there but at my house..only the Eldorado 21 and the Kirk and Sweeney 23. ( and yes, I know the Kirk and Sweeney is not a true 23) will be served.
This one is one you have to work with. Took me 3/4 of a bottle to find what I was looking for, but when I did, the focus was there and it opened up like a flower. beautiful.
Perfect bottle. True Barbados!
I like the sweetness from the sherry cask.
All of the Foursquare products that I have tried are very good. Some just a bit better. I gave this one multiple chances to impress me enough for a rating of 9 or 10, but I just can't. I'll enjoy the rest of this bottle and try the next Seale product that comes out. I have confidence another 9 or 10 is just around the corner.
Have quite a few of the four square rums now and this one is nice however not quite to my tastes. A bit of burn on the mouth and not as flavoursome as some others.
The successor to the well made and very popular port cask finish. This one has ten years of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry barrel aging under it’s belt, weighing in at 46% vol. The nose is potent with sherry notes of ripe dark plum and cherry’s but also leather, tobacco and deep oak. There’s also a hint of brine. The palate is fairly powerfull, opening with notes of dark candied plums and tobacco, quickly fading into raisins, oak, brine and sawdust. It tickles the cheeks for a while, with the oaky note lingering in the mouth. It’s a bit more demanding then the first version and perhaps not quite as balanced but still a a very decent no nonsens rum.
