Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This 2005 is very similar to the 2004 that was also aged in bourbon casks and the nose is almost impossible to tell apart since I still have a bottle of the 2004 in my collection. The first sip is a doozy because of being 59% ABV but after the initial shock you are left with a very complex rum with hints of dried fruit and vanilla coming through with the oak but the natural sweetness balances everything out. I think this rum benefits for giving it a few minutes to breathe in the glass if you're not too anxious to sip it. Another solid rum from Foursquare!
I have to disagree and agree with joola69...indeed this rum is a bit whisky like. So whiskylovers wil love it. Nose is great woody. Taste lasts for ages and is a bit dry (Also because of cask strenght). I rate this rum quite high but think it deserves it.
Enjoyed two glasses of Foursquare 2005 Barbados rum with my friend during a 5,000 mile road trip across 18 States. Bottle and label design looks nice and old school. Golden amber color. Very strong oak and wood from the Bourbon barrel aging straight to your nose and palate. Strong burn at the end. Whisky lovers can add 2 points to the score.
