Touchstone is a molasses based double-aged pot- and column blended rum aged in ex-Bourbon and ex-Cognac casks for 14 years.
It consists of two components.
The first component, a 2008 ex-bourbon aged distillate which was filled in ten former Cognac Camus casks in 2020, then 12yo, to mature for almost 3 years more.
The second component was aged for 5 years in ex-Bourbon casks and 9 more years in ex-Cognac casks.
The nose is woody, fruity, nutty and spicy with hints of cinnamon, ginger and vanilla.
On the palate it’s a little acidic and bitter. I recognize oak, plums, figs, honey, chocolate, blackcurrant, ginger and spice.
The finish is long and dominated by plums with a little bitterness.
Overall a great Foursquare ECS rum.
Mr Richard Seale have done it again.

It’s definitely an interesting mix of bourbon and sweet, with a long spicy finish. For me it’s just too much, I don’t want to have to add a cube or water to get the flavours, and without it’s just hard to get much. For ‘hard-core’ folks, I could see how they really like it.

R. Seal have once again succeeded!
I have been searching for this latest release for a wile and finally last week I got my bottles delivered to the door by a very good friend🥰
Just tried it out and this is a amazing rum and one of the nicest ECS rum.
Full of caramel, flowers, orange and nice spices in the nose.

When tasting the sweetness comes first with sea salt, raspberry candy, grapes and vanilla.

In the tail comes a lot of spices, especially pepper and then a stroll oak taste!

Really recommend this beauty!

First thing is it’s a bit early to be sampling 61% rum for me, thus a taming cube. This hits you square up on first sip then backs down slowly and keeps on going with depth. For me the Isonomy was magical and I luckily have some left which is pure magic. I have to back this one down a bit, I know it’s Ex Cognac but it still reminds me of 2008,2009,2010 with a very full body. Bourbon notes. I paid a hefty price $179 bottle bought 2 from California just to make sure I got it as Isonomy was really hard to come by. Solid rum if you had not had other expressions likely a 9.

Enjoyed on 2/14/24 at the Foursquare Distillery.

Nose: Spice, caramel and fruity
Mouth/Palate: Fruit forward, not a lot of oak and some vanilla
Finish: Balance but with some warmth

This is an amazing rum from foursquare. Very slight burn but an ice cube helps tame it. Great flavors and my sister that only drink wine and cocktails approved of it. I would buy a bottle if I could find one

Great on the nose, flavor forward with spice, cinnamon and vanilla. 122 proof, and you’ll know it. Enjoyed it better with an ice cube, and that’s something I frown upon at that price “$150”. Did not get that cognac taste I was looking for. Not saying the flavor was bad, just wasn’t what it was cracked up to be.

Tasted at Laka Lono on 11-13-23. Ruby amber in color. Phenomenal aroma of butterscotch and caramel but also cognac. The flavor has raisins dates wood tobacco and leather. Thick mouth without too much finishing burn at all. Truly outstanding.

Udgivet i november 2022.

Den smager rigtig godt, men desværre bider den lidt for meget på tungen til sidst.

Combination Bourbon and cognac barels it’s Ok for me.
61% - strong alcohol kick I overcame with a little help of a small ice cube.
