The aroma of port wine is immediately present and powerful, and so my senses were primed to taste aged port...but instead I got rum with very heavy port overtones. Now, I like port and I like rum, but not in the same glass. I don't feel that the flavors blended well to make one fine drink. Instead, there are two prominent and distinct profiles, and little harmony between them.

molasses. dry.
i smell coffee, dried fruit and some spice.
i taste coffee too, some raisins and some grape. pepper notes, marzipan.
10/10 - subtract 5 points if you love the sweet stuff
one of the best.. a clean, light rum with a lot of flavour. dried fruit and of course the coffee note from the port aging. a good real rum to show you the taste of aging in a port wine cask!

Well that is if it is your style as some might find too much wood and too much port influence. But to me, coupled with the sweetness from the port wood, this is a fabulous rum. The rum itself isn't the most complex in the world, but all round this is a winner and at a very sensible price.

Nice and fruity nose with vanilla, banana, chocolate and a little bit of oak. Perhaps a bit of coffee as well, as it heats up in my palm. There's a very pleasant and fresh sweetness to it.
It has a nice and light texture in the mouth and an overall delicate expression, typical of many bajan rum.. The flavorful palette fits my bill with notes of juicy tropical fruits, ripe banana, vanilla and rounded oak. The finish ain't no explosion, but very nice with a lingering fruity, coffee sensation. This is exceptional value, if your into the non-sweetened, but very flavourful bajan rum's. One of my favorite styles.
This little port cask experiment from mr. seale turned out just right and I do hope more of this kind is on the way.

More fatness than I would have expected. A very good glass if you are looking for value for the money! It defiantly has the Bajan feel, and brings a aromatic first impression.

But unfortunately they don't come together very well (at all).

Quite strange, it zig-zags between sweet rum and sour port. Both taste quite nice on their own but together isn't great.

Golden brown in colour, couldn't see any of the red other people mentioned.

Fruity smell.

Very smooth taste, only a slight but very pleasant hint of burn.

"Off" finish similar to a sherried whisky. Slight gap in the aftertaste and then an almost aniseed taste.

Herkomst: Barbados
Distilleerderij: Foursquare
Fles: 70cl met schroefdop.
Abv: 40%.
Kleur: Rood bruin.

Deze rum heeft eerst 3 jaar gerijpt op bourbon vaten en daarna nog 6 jaar op port vaten en geen suiker,kleurstoffen etc. toegevoegd. Want daar staat deze distilleerderij om bekend.

Hele zachte, licht zoete rum met subtiele port smaak. Top.

This is one of the oddest profiles on a rum I have ran across to date. While it is rather smooth it does have a strong cask influence from the port. Meaning just that really the port is the main note here. It does have some very nice spice going on behind the port, but this becomes rather muted by the cask influence. Overall not bad if you like port very nice in the mouth and going down. If you want a rum with a rare profile and different taste then this is a good bet. A gripe I had with the US bottle with the wax was that the bottles I bought leaked unopened when upturned. Drops came down the sides. Upon further inspection of the opened bottle there was glass missing at the top of the bottle creating space between the metal screw top. I did not see any glass chip in the bottle so I can only assume that it happened prior to bottling.

I tried this one at last rum tasting event...I was surprised how nice it tasted! No added sugar, which you will like after all those Riise/Zacapa/DonPapa.
They store it 3 years in US white oak casks, then 6 years in port casks. It is a crossover between port and rum, which makes it unique.
For this price a must have with very nice bottle!

Nose: mild alcohol, cherry
Body: no extra sweetness, strong, port taste, bit of vanilla
Tail: raw, very long lasting,opening up
Bottle: definitely upper average!

Very Unique, I have around 40 different rums in my cabinet and this one is a dead give away. Blind taste test is a piece of cake. You can taste the whiskey on the nose and if finishes with a nice port essence. Not sweet but just a fun and enjoyable libation to make you say, " Wow, like that stuff is pertty darn good, Man". Enjoy it is money well spent. I don't know how you could drink this any way but neat... let me know if u find something.. no don't do it man, i like it just the way it is...
