RL Seales 10 Year is a premium rum produced and bottled in Barbados by Foursquare Distillery. It is aged in oak barrels for a minimum of ten years prior to blending.
This rum comes in a nice fancy bottle, although I prefer to see the colour of the rum I'm buying. The rum actually has a nice golden colour, and a hint of caramel and smoke in it's smell. The minor caramel and smoke can be tasted as well, although it doesn't last long as the harsh burn kicks in. The way it warms you up, it's kinda more like a scotch than a rum (to me).
I’m a big fan of Barbados rum. This is another fine example of a smooth and complex rum without any added sugar. It’s an excellent rum for an extremely affordable price. It’s hard to find a better bang for your buck. Well deserved to carry the name of the founding father’s name!
Bought this and a bottle of Doorly's XO at the local Total Wine. I purchased it after wanting to try other rums after loving Mount Gay XO, which I purchased after I loving Smith & Cross Navy Strength Jamaican rum. Every one of those rums was different, but all have the distinction of not using added sugar. I expected them to be so similar that I could just buy whatever was on sale and be happy, but they're so different as to make me pause and contemplate which I want to have when I reach for the bottle. At first the dry character was a bit of a turn off, but grew on me more and more. This is truly great stuff. May not be as enjoyable I suppose as a sugar bomb, but not having ever tried one of those, I could not say. To top it off, the price is incredible and ensures I'll be buying it for as long as I can.
With a golden color, this rum is a blend of rum of at least 10 years with an aging in American casks and a last refining in brandy. the nose is quite typical of the rum from Barbados with a very pasty nose with almonds, honey, vanilla and a light woody. On the palate, the same notes are set with the citrus fruits that dominate and the tobacco that comes later. It is a beautiful rum but I am not convinced.
Aaah...Barbados ich träum von dir... Bajan-Style.....
Schönes Bernstein mit Kupferreflexen im Glas. Gelungenes Flaschendesign !
In der Nase, in Zitronensaft eingelegtes, frisch gefallenes Laub das auf einem Karamell in einer alten Zigarrenkiste liegt.
Im Gaumen wird die Zunge mit der dezenten Süsse von dunkler Schokolade umgarnt.
Vanillepudding mit Karamellsauce auf gerösteten Eichenbretter mit Gewürz- und Kräuternoten.
Wundervoll ausbalanciert, Rum pur, ohne Zucker und Additive !
Im Abgang geht das Erlebnis weiter, Nüsse in Karamell mit einer Prise Pfeffer, sehr langanhaltend.
Ein ehrlicher Rum für einen guten Preis. Für alle die keine Lust auf Zuckerbomben haben.
Aaah ... Barbados I dream of you ... Bajan style .....
Beautiful amber with copper reflexes in the glass. Successful bottle design!
In the nose, freshly fallen foliage placed in lemon juice, which is lying on a caramel in an old cigar box.
In the palate, the tongue is covered with the subtle sweetness of dark chocolate.
Vanilla pudding with caramel sauce on roasted oak boards with spices and herbs.
Wonderful balanced, pure rum, without sugar and additives!
In the finish, the experience continues, nuts in caramel with a pinch of pepper, very long lasting.
An honest rum for a good price. For those who don't want to go for sugar bombs.
En nariz plátano, vainilla, almendra y roble. ligeramente seco,picante no es un ron dulce, bien envejecido y mezclado. ni hablar de la botella realmente unica.
I don't have the need to be a reviewer of rums, I really just enjoy them and use this app to keep track.
That said, I really enjoy this one. A certain earthiness is present at first, then your tongue is bathed in sweet Barbados rum goodness. I can't use fancy terms here. It's just good.
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...
It is not the smoothest. It is not as sweet as most rums, but i wouldn't call it dry either. No overwhelming flavors, maybe some banana. Its not as good as some of the premium rums but it is hard to beat at its price point. If you are looking for a less sweet rum or a bottle for mixing this would be a great one to pick up.
Nice flavors of caramel and oak. It has a little alcohol burn but not harsh. A good change of pace from the spiced rums that I usually drink.
Μάλλον περίμενα να ενθουσιαστώ και γι αυτό το 7αρι (προς 7,5) ..... Δεν είναι κακό ρούμι .... αντιθέτως έντονο άρωμα και γεύση από βαρέλι , έντονο αλκοόλ (πρέπει να το αφήσεις λίγο , διότι μετά στρώνει) ... Να διευκρινιστεί ότι πρόκειται για not sweet rum , οπότε οι λάτρεις των diplomatiko RE & el dorado ίσως να απογοητευτούν ... Θα το ξανάπινα άνετα αλλά δε μπορώ να το συμπεριλάβω στα αγαπημένα μου (απο 8 και πάνω ) .....
Po všech stránkách pozoruhodný nápoj v roztomile nesmyslné láhvi a s kuriosní, i když vlastně docela tradiční chutí. To, co je na něm neobvyklé, je klasický charakter skotské single-malt whisky podávané v podobě rumu.
První láhev, kterou jsem si před lety koupil, mě velmi nadchla, Druhá, kterou jsem dopil nedávno, mi přišla už jen jako uspokojivá. Hodnocení je tedy zprůměrované z 9 a 5.
Purchased in Barbados for under USD 20. Your basic rum, in nose and taste, but good. Smooth, but not overly complex. Not much stands out. Maybe I'm spoiled by the Plantation 20 year.
Un rhum typique bajan. Avec un nez tout en équilibre sur le boisé , la coco et les épices douces. Aucun sucre ajouté et un véritable vieillissement de 10 ans minimum. Excellente entrée dans le monde des rhums de la Barbades.
God hints of vanilla, smooth start, and bold finish. This rum has a very dry, yet complex character. I would suggest this for anyone looking for a different type of rum. This is not your molasses Ron Zaya or Ron Zacapa. Dry, bold, smooth, and plentiful flavor.
I've seen this rum mentioned a lot lately. I decided it was time to give it a try. Outstanding bottle design. Fruity atoms. Tastes like... Well... Rum. But it has a very strong alcohol burn to me.
