Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
On the complex nose i pick up notes of molasses, chocolate, orange, vanilla, coffee, oak and banana. It open's up real nicely after breathing for a while. On the medium bodied, oily palette I find rounded oak, juicy orange and baking spices. It's refined quality rum, but with a little bite at the same time. The balance is just spot on. The finish is medium long with nice, slightly dry and warming tingles, perhaps imparted by the last 4 years of maturation spent in former Jack Daniel's barrel's. Simply one of my favorite rums. Foursquare know's their stuff.
I actually thought this run was better with a little coke. It helped open the flavors and the spice gave it a nice touch.
Had a chance to sample this excellent Bajan offering from RL Seale, who should be appointed President of Rum or something. King, maybe. Anyway, this is a masterful blend of column and pot still rums which result in a superbly smooth and full-bodied drink which has a little funk and spice in the finish. It is not sweet, so if you're a fan of sugared rums you'll hate this. I love it straight up. Very tasty indeed.
Good, nice oakey adventure. healthy level of foliage and a decent underbrush make for a quality tasting experience.
I quite complex rum that tastes vanilla and chocolate but also a little bit spicy. There’s quite lot of pricewhorty rums from Barbados, and this is one of them.
Picture: My Bajan shelf.
This is not the overproof version but a lighter at 43%. The rum has matured for 12 years in oak barrels. Nosing reveals sweet flavors of mainly vanilla, molasse, raisins and milk chocolate and these notes also dominate the palate (with some added wood) and finish. The rum has a very good complexity and presence especially during the long finish. Nice rum especially if you are looking for a sweet rum.
I wrote a rather scathing review of this Rum a few days ago. I have since changed my mind, either the Rum has changed, or my taste buds have.
The first couple of drinks I was really put off by a strong alcohol afterburn, despite the lovely initial taste. This appears to have either mellowed in a short period of time, or my taste buds have got used to it.
I,m still a bit confused about it though, but in a good way, The initial tastes are fruity, sweet and interesting, then after the swallow, there is a very noticeable bitter taste and strong alcohol burn, then it levels out again .. LOL ... weird and wonderful.
A classic bajan rum. All around is a good rum but not compare to Foursquare.
A very pleasant surprise. I hadn't heard of this before, and by chance ordered a bottle along with some regular favourites. It turned out to be a very nice rum, recommended!
This is an interesting rum in the description but does not deliver on flavour . It's a nice sipper rum but I wouldn't go out of my way to purchase this exclusively, a taster menu yes worth it but other than that there is better availabile
Tried the Rum Sixty Six 12y and I have to say this is marginally better than the Doorly's 12y coming from the same region. Sixty Six 12y has a very nice deep dark color. Unfortunately the smell and the taste test is easily forgettable. Not bad rum in general terms, but easily sits in the middle at a score of 5.
Typical Foursquare rum, "pure" rum without added sugar or other junk. Very tasty, bit dry end of the spectrum. Different than other Foursquare offerings, yet recognisable quality.
Aroma: melasse, fruit
Smaak: eikenhout, zoethout, kruiden.
12 jaar op kleine wit eikenhouten vaten en dat proef je.
A good rum, but not one that I would rush back and buy again. Suspect that has more to do with not as a whole being the greatest fan of Barbados rums. I think for the price there are better rums to be had.
Nice rum with full bodied flavour, not as smooth as some other 12 year olds, but still nice to sip.
Initially not blown away as it's £32+ in the UK, but the more I drink this rum the more I enjoy it.
If you like Doorlys you'll like this. I can see what some reviewers mean about it being oily but i think it coats your palette which is really enjoyable. Basically it's not watery ... You're drinking something that's been tropically aged so it's going to be rich...
Light aroma, and complex taste, yet still easy and relaxed to drink
Fruity and complex and excellent example of a Bajan style golden rum
But not for all occasions
Slightly sour initial punch, too much for my taste. Then finishes with a rubbery finish and a hint of a surprising spice. An oily coating lasts for a little while.
Not a great mix mix with cola
I sampled this at Foursquare in Barbados and then brought a bottle home. It is one of my favorite rums. This is not available in the states. Pick up many on your next trip to Barbados or the UK.
