Recommendable to most
It has a slightly smoky nose with some vanilla hints. The taste is vanilla and toffee forward with a brief middle and a long alcohol burn.
I've read lots of info regarding how Foursquare Distillery is commited to achieve their rum flavor only by art of fermenation, distillation and aging, without involving chemistry lab to mess with the final product and finally I decided to go for RL Seale 10-year old.
I expected some heavy taste to hit my tongue, more than that, I was quite sure I am not yet ready to fully appreciate the work of people from this Barbados distillery - and I could not be more wrong! Pour yourself this 46% ABV magic into the glass and you will witness how wonderfully smooth and complex it is. Pure pleasure for sipping, for such a low price. Moreover, you know what you are buying, as clear statement of age comes on the bottle - this fella will not deceive you with misleading information just to put its hand on your wallet.
Second time I sipped RL Seale along with Zacapa XO - although XO is also definitely worth trying, question appeared in my mind: will I spend so much money for it again, when a true rum, with clear age statement and no additives can be purchased for much smaller price? For me, the answer is NO.
If you are on a stage, when sweetness in rum is your thing (so you enjoy the sugar added), try RL Seale 10 year - for me it was a game changer.
This is a cool bottle that all your friends will find intriguing, but the best part is what's inside. A great sipping rum and nothing else. And for $23 it doesnt get better than this. Cheers
Rhum sans sucre ajouté trouvable à un prix raisonnable (30-50€).
Puissant en bouche, très loin de la rondeur commune des rhums, il retient en bouche des notes boisés et de fruit sec, un second temps avec une remontée de l'alcool en force qui transitionne vers une fin plus douce.
Malgré mon attrait pour les rhums plus doux, je dois bien avouer qu'il est bon, mais il n'est clairement pas fait pour tout le monde. Il saura ravir les personnes qui souhaitent s'éloigner des plus doux vers avoir un goût plus fort et sec.
Curse me for a cantin' mugger! This be a busy but outstandin' rum! She smells sweet of oak, vanilla, and a hint of caramel and fruit - bright like a fine day at sea! On the tongue, she be the perfect sweet with plenty of taste to talk about! She be smooth with pepper and spices and a bit of cocoa, and on her backside, there be raisins... and a fruit I can't put my finger on, but it be a sudden burst of sweet, crisp, clean fruit... like a green flash on the horizon at sunset. If you can't taste it, have MORE. It be there, maties! Some pasty landlubbin' biscuit-eaters might whine that this rum be "too dry", but the rest of us know better! This be an outstandin' sippin' rum! Pollute it with other libations at your own peril, but on THIS ship, that'll get you introduced to the sharks! arrgh!!
Pokud hledáte poměr cena x výkon, rozhodně doporučuji vyzkoušet. Ideální na večerní popíjení s přáteli, navíc bez přidaných aditiv. Tenhle rum bude mít místo v mém baru jisté a je navíc snadno dostupný.
This rum is somewhere between WIRD and Foursquare. My version has 46%.
I can say from the nose that it's a Foursquare rum, but it's not that dark or deep.
It's somewhere between Doorly's 8 and 10y.
Smell: The smell is not very intensive, there is vanilla, bourbon wood, some Foursquare notes like hazelnut in the background. Also some WIRD notes like citrus, orange zests, but not that intensive.
It's on the bright side and is not dark like other great Foursquare bottlings.
Taste: It's still thin at 46% for me. There is vanilla and bourbon wood first, some Foursquare notes like hazelnut in the background. Some citrusy WIRD notes with orange zests are here again, but not that intensive. It's also not very fruity.
This is a quite smooth rum for 46% but too bright for me. I enjoy the more aged Foursquares with dark aromas more. I would prefer Doorlys XO or the much better Doorlys 14.
Would rate it with 77 points.
Value 40€: 2.5/5
Different days I get a different impression from this.
Today, I'm getting sugar, spice, lots of heat, and bone dryness, with a long dry finish. I got a bit more depth the other day.
Easy drinking, but it's suffered by comparison by being bought at the same time as Hampden 8 year old, which just offers more depth, complexity and flavour, for me.
Solid rum. Happy to drink.6.5
