Ve vůni je cítit vanilka, kava a karamel. Barva tmavě jantarová. Chuť po melase, koreni, možná Švestka. Silnější voltaz je hrejive cítit.

It's another Foursquare Exceptional Cask Series.
Mk VII to be precise, and the first year that two editions were released (Premise, Mk VIII), which seems to be the new norm.
Single blended, like all the others, 3 years in Bourbon casks, 7 years in Cognac.
No added sugar, but possibly some caramel colouring.
Beefy 56%
The familiar bottle, but synthetic stopper.

In the glass: Dark Amber and legs like Kim Basinger (yes, more than half is pure alcohol!)
Nose: Toffee and a clear hint of Cognac, then the alcohol pushes in, in a restrained, but "don't mess with me" way
Mouth: There is A LOT of alcohol. Aromas are of toffee, chocolate, wood and a hint of tar. They last. And last.
Throat: The alcohol is full, but not sharp or nasty. A burst of cognac reappears as it all fades to a gentle glow.

Summary: In my opinion every ECS from Richard Seale is a masterpiece. This one does not compromise or aim to please, it is a smooth beast. Personally I struggle with anything over 50%, Détente and Sagacity being my limits.
For that reason only I have marked it "down" to 8, but it is a really great rum, asking for some dark chocolate or a Lebkuchen.
Get one while you still can.

Simply delicioius. Rich, deep, vanilla tones, brown sugar, a hint of smoke and leather. Foursquare can do no wrong.

When pouring this from far away, I thought I noticed a lingering cognac note. This Foursquare rum is bursting with deep, rich, sweet aroma. This review is a sample, and my first high ABV Foursquare.

On the nose there is a distant cognac, raisin, jam, strawberry, orange zest, deep sweetness and vanilla. The palate is nice and viscous (probably due to the 56% ABV), and tastes of dark brown sugar, pepper, and with a little water there are hints of cognac on the sides of the tongue. The finish is almond and roasted coffee, but the deep sweetness of the rum leaves the mouth salivating and not dry like some high ABV spirits.

Really great - I can't wait to try some more cask strength Foursquare!

Foursquare Dominus spent 3 years in Ex-Bourbon Barrels and 7 years in Cognac Casks.

Typical foursquare nose with dry fruits, wood and oranges, also cinnamon, grape seeds and nutmeg.
Woody profile overall, the flavors are dark and sweet with burned sugar. Not very complex nose but intensive.

This rum is like a sharp version of Doorly's 14 in the taste. The taste is sweet, spicy and dry.
It starts with caramel and became immediately spicy. Then wood, orange peels and tannins.
The middle taste is balanced with wood, orage, grape seeds, hazelnut and burned sugar. A little bit too much tannins in my opinion, it's almost too sweet and too spicy. Didn't think I would say it.
The finish is again spicy, wood, cinnamon, orange peels are on my palet.

It's a strong Foursquare with typical flavors. A little bit out of balance but therefore intensive and sweet. Would rate it with 84 points.

Nose: dry fruits, wood, dry orange peels, grape seeds, cinnamon, burned sugar, nutmeg
Taste: caramel, spice, wood, orange peels, tannins
Middle: orange, wood, grape seeds, hazelnut, burned sugar

Aftertaste: burned sugar, some tannins, orange peels

Sweetness: 3/5

This is not the first (or the last) ECS-offering from Foursquare, that I will review. These rums have an exceptional high quality and this one is not an exception

Nose: Caramel, Oak, Leather, Prunes and a small hint of smoking rubber
Taste: Raisins, Pepper, Smoky Rubber, Tobacco and small fruity hint of apples with a lingering aftertaste
Overall: Another hit by Foursquare in their ECS-series. This one had a more complex taste then the previous ones, that I have tried. The fruityness threw my off a bit, but it worked quite well with the other notes. The ABV is perfect at 56% and it is really just a really, really good rum.

This is one of my top rums... to be enjoyed straight without rocks. This 56% is very sippable and it offers distinct cognac barrel notes and has a strong (but very delicate) oaky finish.

Na Dominus som sa tešil,keďže sa uz ťažšie zohana a je to naozaj pohodové pitie. Je jemnejší ako jeho mladší bratia, nepríde mi až tak výrazný. Veľmi dobre pitie i keď v tejto sérii FQ mám aj obľúbenejšie

Everything what a Rum should be like.

The 56% dont even feel that much because the rum is that well balanced.

Another dark mahogany great Foursquare rum easy nose lots of smooth tropical flavors going on. Was hard to get this bottle but glad I popped the cork. Slight alcohol nose but smooth for the high content. Lingers for long tile leaves you wanting another sip.
