Being a little higher prof this has some bite. Sometimes I like it that way and sometimes I add a few drops of water. It has a great burnt caramel flavor.

Foursquare's understanding of how to use and reuse barrels is without company in the rum world and this is yet another that leads me to this conclusion. Dark red fruits and sweetness without being sweetened.

I’m pretty new to rum and maybe I just wasn’t ready to take on Foursquare but I was pretty unimpressed by this bottle. While I know it is a very high proof I felt the burn outweighed the flavor even with an ice cube or 2, especially for the price. The bottle did grow on me once it opened up but it was in my cabinet for awhile. Given their reputation I’ll be checking out more offerings from here however.

Oodles of tropical fruit and vanilla notes. Worth every penny of its high price point, and definitely makes me interested in other foursquare bottles. Unadultered rum wins.

Der Foursquare Exceptional Cask Selection 2007 ist ein Melasse Blend aus Pot uns Column Stil Rums aus Barbados, welcher 12 Jahre in Ex Bourbon Fässern lagern durfte und 2019 in einer Fass Stärke von 59% abgefüllt wurde. Der Rum ist nicht gefiltert, gefärbt und hat keine Zusatzstoffe. Der dunkel braune Rum kommt in der für Foursquare typischen sehr edlen Flasche.

Im Glas wirkt der Rum direkt schwer und ölig und zieht schöne Schlieren. Die Nase ist sehr wuchtig und komplex. Feine Fruchtnoten paaren sich mit würzigen intensiven Holznoten. Gebrannte Eiche und Schokolade und auch Vanille. Die Nase ist sehr ausgeglichen, intensiv und abwechslungsreich. Am Gaumen ist der erste Schluck extrem. Man wird förmlich erschlagen und meine Geschmacksknospen waren erst einmal überfordert. Im Laufe des Abends wurde er immer besser. Am Anfang ist er auf der Zunge fast lieblich mit tropischen Früchten. Diese Note wird schnell durch würzige Noten verdrängt, welche vom Alkohol perfekt im Mund entfaltet werden. Vollmundig kann man Schokolade, Röstaromen, etwas Tabak und Eichenholz schmecken. Der Abgang hat einen ganz kurzen Moment von Süße. Sehr intensive Bourbon Noten und ein pfeffriges Holz Extrakt begleiten den Abgang, welcher lang anhält und leichte Bitternoten beinhaltet.

Wow. Der 2007 hat mich voll überzeugt und steigt in meine Top 5 auf. Foursquare wird hier seinem Ruf vollkommen gerecht und für 60 Euro ist das echt viel Rum. Sehr komplex und vollmundig zeigt der Rum, dass er nicht nur Bourbon zu bieten hat. Süße fehlt hier fast komplett. Ich fand es gut, da er so viel andere Aromen bietet, so das der Rum gar nicht langweilig werden kann. Einfach lecker und zum bewussten genießen. Meine Empfehlung: Kaufen solange er noch auf dem Markt ist.

The Foursquare Exceptional Cask Selection 2007 is a molasses blend made of pot and column rum from Barbados, which was allowed to be stored in Ex Bourbon barrels for 12 years and was bottled in 2019 with a barrel strenght of 59%. The rum is not filtered, dyed and has no additives. The dark brown rum comes in the very noble bottle typical of Foursquare.

In the glass, the rum looks directly heavy and oily and attracts beautiful streaks. The nose is very powerful and complex. Fine fruit notes mate with spicy intense wood notes. Burnt oak and chocolate and also vanilla. The nose is very balanced, intense and varied. On the palate, the first sip is extreme. I got punshed and my taste buds were overwhelmed. As the evening progressed, he got better and better. In the beginning it is almost lovely on the tongue with tropical fruits. This note is quickly supplanted by spicy notes, which the alcohol allows to unfold perfectly in the mouth. You can taste chocolate, roasted aromas, some tobacco and oak wood. The finish has a very brief moment of sweetness. Very intense bourbon notes and a peppery wood extract accompany the finish which lasts long and contains light bitter notes.

Wow. The 2007 convinced me completely and rises to my top 5. Foursquare lives up to its reputation here and for 60 euros that's a lot of rum. Very complex and full-bodied, the rum shows that it has not only bourbon to offer. Sweetness is missing here almost completely. I thought it was good because it offers so many other flavors that the rum can't get boring. Simply delicious and for conscious enjoyment. My recommendation: Buy while it's still on the market.

Tasted side by side with 2008. A bit more dry in aftertaste and the 2008 is slightly better in overall. But it is really really good!

Honestly this is an outstanding representation. Well balanced.
Nose: Bananas, Honey.
Taste: Banana pudding, sweet.
The finish is prolonged and has like some dark chocolate aftertaste.

Ffffff
