I love this high proof expression. I get Banana notes, toasted marshmallows, and candied pears... There is an amazing lip tingling proof and a long aftertaste which has tons of very buttery caramel. The heat is very smooth on the first sips but seems to get more intense as you drink. I tried to get a good handle on the nose and it's just way to high proof to get anything other than nasal torture!!! I picked this up for $90 and it's worth it at twice that. Lovely.
As I has an open Doorlys 14, I was curious to see how they compare.
2010 : alcohol, complex fruit, touch of citrus and dark brown sugar. A subtle whiff of solvent.
Rising heat, gradually bringing layers of brown sugar. An edge of oak and char comes up, which follows into the finish, where the brown sugar re emurges.
The D14 is sweeter. The madiera overlaying the brown sugar and balanced by the varnish and oak. There's a richness, bordering on sickly, but then pulls back into a lingering balance.
The 2010 is much hotter, and caries subtle layers of complexity, it's more akin to D12 in its focus on molasses.
It tastes more grown up than the D14, but it's more challenging too, and demands a degree of contemplation.
But is it better?
The D14 is simpler, and sweeter, but richer too, with a depth the 2010 lacks, but the 2010 has layers, and feels like a glimpse of something next level.
I find it a bit more approachable than the 2009, and glad to have found a bottle, but it hasn't knocked it out of the park for me.
Foursquare 2010 Exceptional Cask Series is awesome. It hits all the right notes for me. Someone suggested it tasted alcohol. Bottled at 120 proof I would expect a little hint. I actually found this release to be a little less alcohol than my other favorite Redoubtable. It's great, enjoy.
I'll admit, I'm not a huge fan of the Foursquare rums. They're generally a bit dry with a too much bourbon aging. But this is above their average.
This rum has a strong bourbon flavor. Strong at 60%abv, but decent.
An above average rum from Foursquare, but I prefer their 2004, as it's a tad sweeter. :-)
Purchased a bottle of FS 2010 yesterday and sampled it tonight. Had I blind tested this one I would without a doubt have guessed Foursquare rum. Familiar aroma and taste, similar to the 2007 & 2008. Can never go wrong with FS ECS rums. Another great rum by Richard Seale. 👍
The quality coming out of this distillery now is nothing short of staggering. Tell me where you can get this level of sipping spirit experience for similar money? The only downside is how limited it is, if you want to buy one off the shelf there is no comparison sadly as even Doorlys 14 doesn’t come close :(
Wow what a great rainy day in Barbados. Visited Foursquare this morning and was offered a sample of 2010 their newest release that’s not distributed yet even in Barbados.
The tasting went on for over an hour and just before leaving the right hand man came in with the two cases and I was able to leave with the first 3 bottles sold in the world. One to drink now 2 to bring home.
Now on to the meat and potatoes, 2010 is aptly named as it carry’s on the tradition of 2008, 2009 with the classic Foursquare Bourbon notes just damn good solid lingering rum.
Co napsat k rumy, který je pořád skoro stejný?
Prostě chutná, osobně řadím Foursquare k rumům, které prostě chutnají.
Některý o něco více, některý malinko méně, ale pořád chutná.
Připomíná mi 2008, ale tu jsem dlouho neměl, musím udělat přímé srovnání. ;-)
Is this the best “year” yet? Possibly yes, if not then a close second to the 2008. One to stock up on methinks!

Nice rum 9 out of 10
But not their best.60% -in nose I feel alcohol,only empty cup allows to smell a woody/bourbon scent. For me this one is little bit sweeter then similar bourbon ECS ,which I like.
I drink this rum with really small cube of ice.
