Strong oak barrel aroma up front and the taste lingers for a while. I am quite surprised to find a little vanilla note and the rest are tropical spice. Very good stuff!

Foursquare 2005 Review
Number VI in the ECS series 2005 with 59% and a quantity of 12,000. A blend of pot and traditional column distillation. The rum is tropical matured in bourbon barrels for 12 years. The release was published in October 2017.

Smell: Very aromatic smell of caramel sweetness, dried fruits and herbs. Clearly one of the better bottlings. The flavors are beautifully balanced. There are also barrel aromas, tannins and vanilla.
Bourbon flavors are also easily noticeable. A nice, if not a very complex smell.

Taste: The rum starts with tannins, wood varnish and caramel sweetness. It is slightly bitter at the beginning, which gets better after several sips. I still notice dried fruit before it gets dry in the middle. The barrel aromas emerge, with oak and vanilla. There is a nice caramel sweetness over everything.
The finish is long and spicy with barrel aromas, vanilla and dried fruits.

Aftertaste: caramel sweetness, oak, herbs and dried fruits. The mouth feel remains dry.

This is a very good ECS release, unfortunately it is not as complex as e.g. the Sassafras but still pretty good. The somewhat stronger aromas such as leather are missing. The tannins are quite present, but the balance is still pretty good.

Overall rating: 88 points

Rigtig god smag i denne rom, dog er alkohol procenten lige lovlig høj for mig.

For the price I expected a little more. Not my favorite Foursquare. Dont get me wrong its a good rum, just not my favorite.

Ve vůni je cítit vanilka, med a cukr. Barva krásne jantarová. Chuť příjemná silnější voltaz je paráda. V chuti se projeví cokolada, koreni a skořice.

Coconut, baking spices, cherries, plums. Drinks well for the proof.

Foursquare 2005 is a solid rum, which goes without saying. However, it’s plain. Not bad, but it lack identifying characteristics except for oak.

Strong nose, sharply oaky on the palate and a long burn in the finish. Unremarkable to me in the company of it’s kin, but head and shoulders above many syrupy offerings from other brands.

This is an excellent entry for a whiskey drinker as it will surely tick all their boxes with the bonus of the sweet molasses finish.

Hard to find these days but still available if you look.

Beautiful hints of coconut and banana, spicy white pepper, ginger, and nutmeg. Has a balanced sweetness with medium legs. Great sipper but its too hot fot me. I needed to water it down with ice. If you dont like bourbon, this isnt for you. Most foursquare rums have a distinctive bourbon influence.
