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.
2005 is a great rum 12 years in an ex bourbon cask at 59% released in 2017. I prefer this to Sagacity and premise.
It's extremely difficult to even begin with describing of this rum. What I say is this is not for everyone. You need to LOVE the general rum flavor in order to enjoy this one simply because of how intense the flavor is. The balance between dry oak and sweet rum flavors is absolutely amazing here. Long finish makes the enjoyment even more intense. It is also pretty easy to pick up the banana flavor, which mixes pretty nicely with the rest of the flavor profile. Absolutely amazing experience!
Feels tight somehow. Has a good balance of sweetness and oak, and it has enough body to handle the high ABV well. Clearly an intense rum, but also not spectacular enough to warrant the hype I've read about
The middle of my Foursquare "vertical" and so good I bought a 2nd bottle after trying. Let it rest for a few in the glass and then smell heaven.
Fan of the brand...the higher proof, 59%, made me even more interested to purchase. I’m just not accustomed to higher proof rums. Definite initial burn, but warm tones of honey & butterscotch; nice finish leaving a wonderful aftertaste across the palette. Definitely will continue to be a fan of Foursquare.
