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.
While in my local adult beverage supermarket, I was looking for some new rums to try. I have a champagne taste but have a beer budget. Based on reviews by Rum Ratings fans, I chose Doorly’s and RLS 10-year, which fit my budget. Tried the Doorly’s first, which I really like, and have already rated. But when I took my first sip of RLS I said “now that is nice!” Nice deep, mature taste that boarders on good Scotch. Great for sipping on the rocks. Easily one of my favorites, especially at this price point.
Foursquare has produced a nice array of fine rums in the past, and the R.L Seale 10 year rum is no exception. Luscious fruity, oaky and nutty with a hint of vanilla provides this rum a place in everyone's liquor cabinet.
I love the creative bottle design...
Being such a fan of Foursquare, I thought I would try some of the other rums produced by Foursquare Distilleries. I picked up R.L. Seal 10-year for a great price and poured myself a little taste, neat. After sitting a moment or two, I was surprised how sweet this rum presents on first taste. Knowing that this distillery is known for pure rums, I'm amazed at the perceived sweetness that comes across with no additives. This really is a beautiful expression of pure Barbados rum.
