Now this is some good stuff
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.
smooth for the ABV, but there is some burn. Well oaked, wonderful aroma. Vanilla and some dried fruit in both. I needed to water this down for sipping to peel back some burn and get to more flavor. Well made rum, I just wish had a slightly lower ABV, but thats my opinion.
Foursquare rum is becoming, if it hasn’t already, the “Pappy” of the rum world, the cream of the crop. With no added sugar, caramel color or anything else to alter the work of a genius, Richard Seale has stepped up his game. The new Exceptional Cask Selection series rocks with limited edition year makes like the 1996, 2004 and 2005. Then the Port, Zinfandel, Premise, Dominus and Criterion. And more added to those or will be made available as the collection continues to expand. The 2005 is on the spicy side, it’s 59% abs., it has flavors of chocolate, lemon and lime, ginger, pepper, vanilla with a touch of smoke at the end. Splash of water will bring out other ethanol’s offering other flavors instead of tasting the high alcohol content.
The 2005 expression is aged in bourbon casks for 12 years. It is limited to just 6000 bottles in the US. And another 6000 in the UK.
Definitely one to be added to your collection and enjoyed neat.
A definite collectors piece,
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!
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.
