My first 10 ever, for that price it is an amazing rum. Extremely balanced taste, surprisingly smooth and very pleasant to drink.

This is the Jedi among rums. Honest, stoic, stylish, clean and good to a fault. No overaging, no overcharging, no blending with lower quality rums. Refreshing nose, almost no burn, excellent flavor somewhat reminiscent of a good whiskey, just super mellow and smooth all round. As far as I know, they don't add sugar after distillation. I haven't tested this, but this rum is certainly not too sweet. Great on the rocks or straight.

It won't break the bank either, being one of the cheapest high quality aged rums which can be purchased for as little as $22.99 in Georgia. The only downside is that it can be hard to find in certain places.

That said, if you enjoy very sweet rums, say, Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, then this rum might not be for you.

Interesting bottle, outstanding fruit and sweet aroma. Taste is very well balanced, hints of caramel, but not sweet. Nice end with decent afterburn. No added sugar, it is a must for lovers of dry rums.

Enjoy your over-priced, over-aged, "premium" (added) sugar bomb rums people. Marvel at the beauty of that caramel coloring while your at it! This Richard Seale disciple and Foursquare fan says, "no thanks". This HONEST distiller -- accurate age statements, no additives, does not ruin his rum by over-aging it so he can over-charge the misinformed for it (rum is not scotch) is your "desert island distiller". This rum is simply perfection -- the gold standard, and priced at what rum SHOULD cost. Rum, neat, is my poison of choice. I've tried many -- not all, and have yet to find one that matches this at any price. Foursquare and its rum, especially its premium bottle (this one), has earned a permanent place on my shelf. When the bottle is empty, I drive to get another "fill-up", with the urgency of one whose gas tank is on "E". Life's too short for over-aged, caramel colored, over-priced, sugar added, flavors added crap that too often passes for rum these days. No need to look further -- this is, literally, the real deal. Mr Seale, I'm much obliged. Thank you, sir. Bless you.

I was presently surprised by this rum. It is on sale at Total Wine until 11/1/15
It was so good I went and bought three more bottles. One for a present. At $20
on sale it is a steal over the other aged rums especially 10 yr old Barbados rum.

I would buy this rum again in a heartbeat and it will likely be my go to rum
into the future.

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.

A perfect daily sipper. Balanced in every way. A stronger brown sugar note than other Bajan rums I've had, and a little less oak than usual, in a good way. This is the rum I plan to always have on hand.
