Now this is some good stuff
Foursquare has done it again! Everything I have had from Mr. Seale I have thoroughly enjoyed! Not as sweet as the Port Cask or Zin Cask expressions but plenty of dark, red fruit flavors. If you see it get it, you won't be disappointed!
Possible rum perfection. For me, this is right up there with the Criterion, a personal favorite. Awash in cherries, plums, apricots, and dark wine too. The cognac is there, but not as dominant as 7 years would have you assume. Perfectly drinkable at 56% as well. I don't know how Foursquare does it; high percentage rum still being easily sippable is not easy to do, yet they have practically perfected it. 10+
I tried a few other of the top rums, but none made me join the site in order to tell other people how good they are.
This is probably the nicest drink I've ever had.
Zero burn, fruity as you like, subtly sweet and super long lasting. I honestly haven't a clue what magic was used to get a 56% ABV spirit to taste like this but its enough to make me question everything.
I don't know how to describe the tastes very well, but honestly from even before the first sip I took, I knew it was the best rum I'd ever had, and the taste only confirmed that.
It was "only" £54 as well, which compared to some of the other premium rums, is a complete and utter steal.
I've got a bottle of the Zinfandel cask on its way, and after trying this, I am beside myself with excitement waiting for that to come.. bring on Monday!
Thanks to Rum ratings and everyone on here for steering me towards this pure, unadulterated shining superstar of the rum world, it's the finest drink I've ever had.
Beautiful aroma of fruits and cognac influences. 56 % but still easily sippable. Lovely golden colour upon pouring , no caramel colouring here !! I could go on but lets just say this is pure proper rum with nothing added and tastes fantastic.. and it even comes with a cork and not a screwcap ! The wonders will never cease.
Strong in nose as the high level of alcohol stands out. In nose, oaky and a lot of dark fruits. Highly recommended!
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.
The strength of 56% is an asset as well as something that detracts. I find that high strength rums quite often mask the nose, and to me, the nose is half the enjoyment. However, on the palate, the elevated alcohol levels are superbly well integrated. Sure there is a burn. That is to be expected from something at 56%, but to me at least (!!) it isn't harsh and it leaves the most incredibly beautiful warmth.
EDIT - as of recent times, I've quite often found myself putting water with this one 4:1 (which takes ABV down to 45%). It might well be against the spirit of things, but I find that I drink rather a lot more of it. That might be bad for the body, but the fact that I drink more of it is to me a sign that maybe I prefer things a little less strong. And its bloody good at 45-46%.
