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.
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.
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.
This! Is a masterpiece. I didn't believe all the feedback and hype surrounding it, until the very moment that i saw it upon a shelf! It beckoned to me! The bottle shape, its decoration, its presence and dignified appearance, i swear dammnit it shouted right into my ear: "grab me and drink me"! I gazed upon it decisively and saw the red label "Export Proof". Double checked the % and indeed, it said 46! I immediately grabbed it by its neck and dragged it to the the cashier. 48 euros. Pirate flask, check! Seale, check!!! Bajan, check! I immediately opened that too, even if not one day ago, i uncorked the Appleton 21. Boy, what a strong and pleasant smell! Wooden cask, reeks or "premium"! Great bite, mediocre pleasing burn, feels spicy, tastes fruity, with a very smooth texture and a memorable aftertaste! This is absolutely a "flagship" rum, even if it costs less than half of one's price! Keep up the good work and keep the damned sugar and additives, as faraway as possible, from bottles of rum! Yarr
