Now this is some good stuff
one of three that Foursquare released in 2018 this is number eight in the Exceptional Cask Series. Bottled at 46% this has been aged for a total of 10 years. 3 years in ex-bourbon casks and 7 years in ex-sherry casks. Therefore this is really follows the releases of Port & Zinfandel.
A very approachable rum. Light & fruity with hints of vanilla and a touch of oaky spicyness.
Vanilla, oak, sherry, and brown sugar on the nose. Very smooth drinking with some of the sherry coming though to pair off with the vanilla.
Delicious, rich, and complex. Oak tannins don't overpower the delicate flavors. Notes of butterscotch, vanilla, citrus shine with hints of chocolate.
As a sherried whisky fan i had to try this and i was not dissapointed. Fruity, not too much oak. If this was a constant release i would buy this again and again. In my top 5 rums ever for sure.
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!
This was the rum that made me start to explore things other then whisky. And if you like sherried whisky, I think you may really enjoy the Premise.
The nose is sherry, cola, plum jam, light pepper. The palate is cherry, oak, pepper and overall has a rich (but natural) sweetness. The finish is almond and light pepper.
Truly a fantastic rum, but as I'm nearing the end of my bottle, I have tried some other FS. This one is really good, but there are others that are slightly more complex and at at higher ABV. This is (so far) on the sweeter end of FS I've tried.
in miros se simte taria , dar mai putin decat ma asteptam ceea ce e un plus; imi pare ca simt o aroma ca de codite de cirese ) ceva putin putin dulceag si condimentat , poate putina scortisoara si ceva piper
in gust taria isi face clar prezenta dar este cumva tinuta in frau la un nivel surprinzator avand in vedere ca vorbim de un rom de 46% ; isi pastreaza ca si in miros o tenta dulceaga ; se amesteca interesant caramelul destul de puternic cu ceva vanilie, ceva condimente dar nu la fel de pregnante ca in miros. e interesant cum se desfac aromele pe limba dar si constanta arsurii. la acest rom taria nu vine in valuri ci se pastreaza constanta fara sa devina suparatoare sau neplacuta , e ca un aspresor care arunca in acelasi timp alcool si arome ).
singura care creste in intensitate este aroma de cireasa care se imbina bine spre final cu aroma puternica de caramel si alcoolul ramanand in postgust aceea usoara tenta dulceaga si acel ciudat gust de cireasa. spun ciudat pentru ca e un gust lemnos , de la butoi evident, care ma duce cu gandul mai degraba la coditele de cireasa (cum simteam si in miros )
un rom cu adevarat savuros , gustos dar extrem de scump. l am comparat in mintea mea mult timp cu plantation 20 XO si sunt cam la acelasi nivel cu un mic plus poate catre acesta (premise) care nu are zahar adaugat .
am zis si de plantation 20 XO ca este scump dar in lupta cu premise diferenta de pret e mare si n as mai cumpara poate niciodata premise in detrimentul lui plantation .
Dar am fost incantat de cunostinta ))
Nádherná farba rumu vo vkusnej fľaške. Prvý dojem nesklamal. V chuti cítit miernu liehovost,no v chuti už prakticky vôbec,nepovedal by som ani to,že tento rum má 46%. Je neskutočne vyladený,hladký a harmonický. Plno ovocných tónov a mňa drevitost. Odporúčam na začiatok všetkým,ktorí váhajú začať s rumami Foursquare. Dal by som mu 8,5 bodu
Definitely my rum style.
Extremely smooth, oak flavor and easy to drink.
Very hard to find and expensive. You have to be lucky to buy at the right price.
The Doorly´s line is a good alternative, with similar quality and cheaper.
"Gently, well balanced spice and oak mingle along nicely with just enough of the sweet fruits and sherry notes."
