Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Let it breath some minutes. The first hit was alcoholic but after a few minutes a beautiful palate of flavours appear.
Aroma: vanilla, backed bananas, bourbon, red wine, later black current and wine zest.
Taste: less sweet than the nose suggests. Spicy, light sweet. Long finish with spices and wine'ish tanins.
As an fan of Foursquare rums the Sagacity is an excelent addition to my collection. Tasting this rum is incredible, full of fruit and a touch of sweetness.
Yet another excellent rum from Foursquare and probably my favourite so far (Dominus, Hereditas, Zinfandel cask blend and Empery are the others I've tried). £47 a bottle and the best rum under 50 quid in the world I reckon. Will be getting more in before people push the price up!
I would give this bottle my highest recommendation. The finish is incredible on this full of fruit and a touch of sweetness. I will need to seek more rums with a madeira finish.
Im really torn between 9 and 10 score. It is really amazing rum with nice aroma full of oak, grapes and orange. In mouth is full of flavours. Mainly oak, raisins, tropical fruit and grapes. Finish is very long due to 48% and very warm. I would rate it 9,5.
Aroma is gentle with vanila tones. Taste is fruity and natural sweet. Surprisingly complex lighter body. Aftertaste is longer with peach and oak tones. Nice surprise, worth taste.
This is another of the "Exceptional Cask Series" that Foursquare has been turning out of the last few years and like the others this one is also a winner. It has a great nose where the natural sweetness comes through. The first sip is somewhat spicy which is surprising since it has a lower ABV of 48% compared to the other Cask series. However, further sips the sweetness and complex flavors come through. I'm really enjoying this one!
Wow. Another stunner from Foursquare.
Having just had the 48% Doorly's 14yo, I thought that this Sagacity at 48% was a natural one to try. Compared to the 14yo, this has an elegance and subtlety instead of outright oak and fruit power. I prefer the Doorly's 14yo, but that sets the bar high and is of course subjective. But that's not to say that this is anything but a wonderful rum. It has the most wonderful finish, soft, long oak.
What a pair of 48% rums....I look forward to see whether/how the bottles open up and develop.
The Doorly's for power - the Foursquare for elegance.
