Foursquare gets a lot of hype. No mistake, this is a quality rum. I came back after drinking it some more and increased it from 7 to 8. It is overpriced at $80. The ABV is fine. I like a rum with bite and burn. But I could not rate this 9 or 10. It has some nice complexity. It has some great depth. Lots of oak with toffee notes. A really nice strong rum.

Dark amber with a greenish hue (that could be ambient light fooling my eyes).
Nose: Caramel, oak, vanilla, leather, sugarcane and a slight touch of varnish/linseed oil that indicates this is high in alcohol.
On the palate it strikes you with more varnish, being a bit unpleasant to be honest. This rum needs to breathe in the glass for at least ten minutes because that varnish becomes a nail polish remover trying to escape the mouth through the nostrils. A pity, because otherwise it has some things going on for it with a certain elegance, leather and slightly charred pineapple.
The aftertaste lingers after a short burn, with classical notes of tobacco, sugarcane and oak but the original mouthfeel is too thin to make for an integrated drinking experience.

This rum is not for everyone and the high alcohol is not quite tamed. A bit sloppy distillate or blending perhaps? Several times I imagined a very experienced blender or distiller who has become a bit too insensitive over the years. I do like strong spirits but this blend has components that should simply not have been there.

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.

vůně - ovoce, meruňky, koření
chuť - podobně jako vůně v kombinací s voltáži 59%, další parádní kousek od Foursquare

You can definitely tell this is a higher proof. Strong burn, complex flavor. Not bad, but probably won’t buy it again given the price point.

I let my initial pour breath for a few minutes prior to getting a nose full of alcohol. If you like sweet rums, run away. If you’re more of a purest for Barbados’s rum you’re in the target market. This is the rum you serve you’re “scotch snob” friends that look down on you as you’re secretly try to transition them to rums. Tell them it’s an American bourbon and then enjoy seeing their face after you’ve confused them.

With 59% alc. this rum is not for first time sippers. After a initially burning/alcoholic sip you get a well rounded oaky taste that keeps lasting in your mouth. this rum is not for everyone but I loved it. however if you like it sweet en easy, then this one is not for you.

Not my favorite Foursquare, a bit more alcohol scent first smell. Nice flavor on the tongue and gums. Warms you up and lingers but more of a burn linger than intense spice linger like Empery..Glad to have it in my collection will visit again soon. I like to sip several side by side and compare and contrast.
