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.

So this is my first experience with an actual Foursquare Rum although I have had several of R.L. Seale's rums. This is, however, absolutely on another level entirely. This is a high ABV rum so it is going to be strong but the complex notes and experience from this rum are almost mind-blowing. Imagine sitting in an Oak great hall next to a crackling fire while someone is making Vanilla-Orange chocolates in the kitchen down the hall and the aromas are lightly wafting through your nostrils. Now imagine that entire experience is happening inside your mouth and up to your nostrils.

The nose is a lovely combination of Orange, Vanilla, and Chocolate. Once you take a sip a coating of chocolatey vanilla orange coats the front of your palate while notes of Oak, Bourbon, and just a touch of Cinnamon swirl in the back of your mouth along with a perfect fireside warmth. All of these notes linger in a magnificent subtlety which tickles your tonsils long after you set your glass down. It has wonderfully intricate bourbon tones, but you can't find a bourbon that could hold a candle to this in a millennia.

This is pure awesomeness in a bottle. It is worth every single penny of the $80 I paid for it, and that is saying something.

Bravo! Mr. Seale, Bravo!

This. Is. Rum.

*Post edit 01/2021* After trying almost 70 rums this is the best rum I have ever had. This is perfection to me. I literally cannot imagine how this rum could be any better.

Picked up on a recommendation and I really enjoy it, straight or on the rocks. Oaky vanilla flavor, it’s what I share with my bourbon drinking friends

This beats anything I've had from Foursquare to include all ECS batches, and IB I've tried, and others. It's a stunner.

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.

Another great rum from Foursquare. I normally don’t spend this much on a bottle of rum but my beautiful wife gave me a bottle for Christmas (yes I have the best wife ever). The rum is a perfect balance of sweet, wood, and aroma. This bottle will be savored slowly!

This is a fabulous rum. Yes it has a high ABV, but this is sipping rum, if you really want to appreciate it. This is the kind of rum that bourbon drinkers will switch to when summer arrives. Complex. It's not for pina coladas or for mixing with Coke. If you're new to rum, start with something else, this is for experienced drinkers that appreciate what a rum can be. Four Square is one of the best rum distillers in the world and this is one of their best.
