Very good rum. Nice taste and aroma. I really enjoy the depth of it. My score is 8,5.
In the nose I get wood, vanilla, raisins and grapes.
The taste is dominated by vanilla, cinnamon and the 10 years of aging in the barrel.
The aftertaste and finish are very long lasting characterized by spicy, oaky and warm notes.
I've had a number of the Foursquare ECS productions.This is my favorite of the bunch.
This is a lower price offering for the ECS so it is definitely more accessible for the average rum drinker. You really can't beat the price for the quality of this rum.
A great example of a rum that can achieve sublimely delectable levels of sweetness without any additives. Berry compote, wet wood, raisin juice on the nose. On the palate, tons of roasted almonds and macadamia, the berry notes go deeper, the raisins become prunes, and a ton of fresh vanilla. The finish lingers like the residual heat of a good hot sauce but with berry flavors.
Excellent rum.. The nose is a little bit light but the palate and after taste are really great.. Delicious
Zrání v sudech po bourbonu a po portském.
Alkohol: 51 %
Aroma: Vliv bourbonu i portského je dobře znatelný. Tlející dřevo, čerstvé piliny, hřebíček, trocha větrovosti až do láku z okurek i s koprem. Jinak standrdní příjemná vůně. (86 b)
Chuť: Velmi mírná nasládlost. Krémový, uhlazený, jemný i přes těch 51%. Až v dochuti mírně vystrčí růžky. (88 b)
Shrnutí: Ochutnávka při naší již 23. degustaci s kamarádem. Pikantní, typický Barbados. Baví mě.
Nose: Punchy, acidic, fruity, slightly sweet, some vanilla
Mouth: Flavor explosion! Ripe cherries, green grapes, oak. Not oily, but full bodied and and slightly tart.
Finish: loads of oak and some tannins, then comes the oxidized port character. Leaves my mouth very dry.
This Detente absolutely fits for purpose from my point of view, he surprised me very pleasantly. It is thoughtful, mature, it combines perfectly the components of fruit and wood. Bourbon maturation for me is dominated by maturing in port barrels, but it certainly did not overshadow it. I also expected it to be "weaker", but I really enjoy it and 51% fit it perfectly. 😎
On the nose: tropical fruits and sugar cane, brown sugar, sweetness, some cocoa, caramel and berries, some alcohol, star fruit, grapes.
On the palate: brown sugar, tropical fruits, sweetness, spices, a touch of port wine, caramel, pepper, intense.
In the finish: spices, tropical fruits and some dark chocolate, dark caramel, pepper, becoming drier, alcohol.
In der Nase: tropische Früchte und Zuckerrohr, brauner Zucker, Süße, etwas Kakao, Karamell und Beeren, etwas Alkohol, Sternfrucht, Weintrauben.
Am Gaumen: brauner Zucker, tropische Früchte, Süße, Gewürze, ein Hauch Portwein, Karamell, Pfeffer, intensiv.
Im Abgang: Gewürze, tropische Früchte und etwas dunkle Schokolade, dunkles Karamell, Pfeffer, trockener werdend, Alkohol.
Today I have a Detente 2020 in the glas. I'm a little bit late with my rating, but this one had to wait because there were so much other bottlings that I wanted to taste first.
The nose reminds me of Doorlys 14. A balanced and very good Foursquare nose.
I get the typical caramel with hazelnuts first. Then some oak with vanilla a lot of dry fruits and some more heavy notes of wet barrel. I get also a bright note of a fruit like melon but it's overlapped by the more heavy aromas. A silightly medical note is also in the backgrround.
Very good nose overall, even if these aromas do not surprise me, I find this balance very appealing.
The taste starts sweet with caramel and dry fruits, then I get some bitter notes of tannins and the typical hazelnuts. This is a good and tasty start, not very complex but I like it.
In the middle I get again the hazelnuts with caramel, dry fruits, oak and vanilla. It's again not very complex and a represents a typical Foursquare.
The finish is a little bit spicy with vanilla, oak, then the typical dark dry fruits like plum. Then I noticed some burnt sugar and in the very end I get some dry fruits like apricots with dates.
Good rum overall, it's easy enjoyable and a good representation of Foursquare rum.
I would rate it with 85 points. To get more points it should have more complexity (more aromas and heavy notes).

One of the best! 9 out of 10
I bought this with a little trepidation due to my dislike of bourbon. I’ve been wanting to try one of the Foursquare ECS rums for a while due to the high rating from everyone. This seemed like a good choice due to aging in the ex-port casks. Wow! I cracked this open last night with some friends for a taste. Everyone absolutely loved it. The initial heat was followed by a nice, mild spiciness and then the flavor of the port rolled across the tongue. This may have been one of the best rum‘s I’ve ever had. I’m going to be in trouble since I plan on buying a few more bottles to keep in my stash.
