12y blend from a pot and column still. Could be very balanced juice, but it's still not very old. I usually prefer the 14y Foursquares.

Smell: Very nice dark and sweet Foursquare smell escapes from the glass. This indicates a very good bottling. Caramel, dried fruits, some Bourbon barrel with vanilla. Hazelnut with a little honey sweetness, heavy aromas of wood varnish and a little orange.
A little more earthy deeper in the glass. Here the typical Forusquare flavors are in a very good balance.

Taste: Sweet start with burnt sugar, dried fruit and orange zest. The sharpness increases and gives the Bourbon barrel with vanilla space. Hazelnut and heavy barrel aromas emerge, wood varnish develops. Orange zest explode and come with tannins, as if you were chewing on dry orange peel. The spiciness tingles on the palate, the finish is sharp with orange zest, burnt sugar, earthy barrel aromas and dried fruits.

Aftertaste: orange zest, dried fruit and burnt sugar, hazelnut

Conclusion: an excellent bottling. Very sweet, but also spicy and with heavy aromas. I would say it came out of the barrel at the right time. Very nice balance and quite complex.
Except that I was not surprised by the flavors, this bottling offers everything.

Produced from a blend of light rums distilled in a triple column still and heavy rums distilled in the distillery’s famous double retort pot still, this version enthusiastically fulfils the role of plenipotentiary bestowed upon it. Aged for 12 years in ex-bourbon casks, it has many arguments to support its legitimacy, notably a naturalness that wastes no time with flourishes, limitless generosity and a fierce passion to continually keep pushing forward.
The complex first nose is particularly exotic (mango, banana). Spicy (pepper), once allowed to breathe, it develops notes of vanilla and chocolate. Gradually, citrus fruit (lemon, orange) refreshes the palate. The concentrated attack is smoky and aniseedy. The spicy (nutmeg) and floral (carnation) mid-palate gradually becomes spicy (cayenne pepper). The silky start of the finish is fruity (apple) and candied (apricot). Very mineral (slate) and powdery (cocoa), it is then heady (lilac). The retro-nasal olfaction is a subtle mix of nuts (almond) and sweet spices (cinnamon).

Tepla vune uslechtileho dreva s bourbonskou cokoladou, krasne to doplnuje ovoce, asi flambovany banan, sirup z kukurice. Plnotucny rum.

Already aroma is complex, warm and fruity. Taste is full of bourbon and oak, after develop and you cannidentify the minerals, chocolate and ending in long smoked aftertaste. Similar to Nobiliary, but a bit more complex and smoked. Worth to try 9.5 points.

Destilováno / Nalahvováno: 2007 / říjen 2019

Rum zrál 12 let v destilerii FQ v sudech po bourbonu.
Rum je v pořadí již 6. spoluprací mezi L. Garganem a R. Sealem.
Vyrobeno bylo 6000 lahví.

Aroma: Štiplavá vanilka, zralé tropické ovoce (výrazné banány a kokos), bourbonovitost a alkoholová ostrost. Vše podbarveno určitým odérem železářství.
Chuť: Vanilka, alkohol, dřevo. Velmi hutná a štiplavá.
Dozvuk: Hořknoucí dřevo mísící se s ovocnou šťavnatostí a vanilkou se zdáním zemitosti. Dlouhý.
Sladkost: 0/3
Celá lahev
Výrazově taková robustnější a ostřejší "ročníkovka" od FQ. A asi i o fous lepší. 9+/10.

Another Foursquare rum sampled tonight and this one did not disappoint. What can I say, simply delicious with a long satisfying burn at the end. Cannot score this one below 10. 👍

This Plenipotenziario absolutely fits for purpose from my point of view, The color of rum is beautifully golden, darker, such a lighter mahogany. The aroma and taste are very strong and pleasant, sweet with hints of fruit and chocolate. Rum contains 60% alcohol and is without added artificial additives. 😎

Ve vůni je cítit banan a pepř. V chuti je cítit sudova síla a jde cítit citrusy a koreni. Závěr dlouhý a hrejivy.
