Tropical and dark fruits for days.. topped up with warm caramel cream. Dessert in a bottle. Balanced, complex flavours and absolutely fantastic. Loved it.

There is a fruity and caramel note. Very smooth. Delicious and strong. After pouring the rum over ice, the flavor changed a bit. Definitely a delicious blend of many different flavors.

On to sampling Foursquare Shibboleth.
This 56% ABV Foursquare Shibboleth rum is another beautiful rum made by Mr. Richard Seale. I have been a fan of Foursquare rums for some time and am just getting to the point where I can finally sample those.
This is a complex rum like I have notexperienced yet.

Aroma is nice, fruity with some honey. Taste is warm, smooth and very complex with mailny fruit (forest, peach, exotic) and some oak + vanilla. Aftertaste is very long and woody. Little bit lower level of alcohol (56%) is perfect compromise, how to highlight the taste, but not burn and is suitable even for beginners. I would place it between Sagacity and 2008. Only one negative point is the price, that is higher than other bottles from ECS serie.
9.5 points

Stunning but more subtle than some others before which serves as a point of difference within the ECS range.. I am already on my 2nd bottle and will buy more if possible as I think this might become a classic like Criterion. Very very easy to drink, beware!!

Really special stuff, and shows how far FSQ have come. Compare this year’s releases to the legendary Criterion and both are superior rums. Redoutable more heavy weight, Shibboleth subtler but multi layered and dangerously easy to drink despite there high ABVs. Do NOT add water!

Foursquare consistently make outstanding rum and this one is no exception. A different flavour profile to the 07/08 and Redoutable and perhaps more subtle and tropical but none the worse for it! These expressions have become holy grails for rum lovers, and I can’t wait to see what 09 tastes like!

First impresion-16 years seems to be too much. Only in Bourbon barels. In this case woodiness exceeded typical Foursquare taste.
Needs more sips and time and maybe I re-evaluate my rating. Till then only 8.

Nice pour!

Aroma: Acetone, Caramelized Orange, Black Walnut, Almond, Black Currant, Butterscotch, Chocolate covered strawberries, Dried Apricots, Mint, and Candy floss.⁠

Palate: Layered, rich, and complex. Notes of dark chocolate ganache, blackberry compote, butterscotch, banana nut bread, finishing with tangerine, and blood orange⁠.

Aroma: Zatuchlé dřevo, vanilka, pražené mandle a kešu, kokos a stopa slanosti.
Chuť: Nasládlá, karamelová, jemná.
Dozvuk: Spousta dřeva, opět kešu, lehce nasládlá rozinkovost se doplňuje s dřevem. Nepatrně kouřový.
Sladkost: 0/3

Jelikož jsem porovnával s Nobiliary, jednalo se doslova o souboj těžkých vah, který dopadl remízou. Oba dva jsou jasných 10/10. Kdybych si opravdu musel vybrat vítěze, zvolil bych Nobiliary díky větší ovocnosti. Ale oba dva jsou (alespoň za mě) tím nejlepším, co značka FQ může momentálně nabídnout.
