Sugar: Estimated 4 GPL. Another classic rum from the Foursquare masters.
The first thing I noticed was the screw top bottle that has been dipped in wax. This rum is worthy of a proper cork. Second thing, is you need to let this rum catch some air. It's a bit sharp on the nose, so give it a swirl and wait a minute. As expected after 6 years in a Port cask the rum has a nice reddish tint to it as well as a decent aroma and taste of port. Underneath the dominant port taste is a well balanced classic rum with vanilla, oak, some peppery spices (probably from aging in bourbon casks, and a touch of caramel. Nice kick and burn all the way down. Overall I find this rum to be a very good value, but I don't see this being anything higher than an 8 as it has some sharp edges to it.

Wow! Not only does Richard Seale hit this out of the ballpark, but it is done with a price tag that is downright a steal!
The flavor composition is wonderful. This is not a dry rum like the Richard Seale's black bottled finest rum, however, what it is is a smooth rum with nice flavors that work well together. Fruity, oaky notes that intermingle well with vanilla, clove, cinnamon, caramel and nutmeg.
Enjoy neat please...
And make sure you have a bottle, or two put away! This rum is very limited overseas as well as here!

This stuff is good.. I'm still trying to get all the flavors on the palet and nose. But now I will purchase the 11 year Zin since this is high on my taste buds list. The flavor fades away fast though, so the only down side. That just means I gotta drank more๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜Ž

Of the 3 Foursquare Cask offerings, the other 2 I'm aware of at least being the 2004 and the Zin, this Port finish is the sweetest. Not in a sugary way though. It seems the port tames the bourbon which in turn brings out the white oak wood with a hint of cedar. It's a lovely sipper with a kick that feels stronger than the noted 40% ABV. Perhaps it's the wood influence that is so tongue numbing.
Yes if you like wood, smoke, pepper and leather.
No if you like sugary candy smooth crap.

You can definitely taste a bit of port from the port finish. I think it adds a nice character. The bottle is pretty cool, if a bit kitschy, with wax seal and faux handwriting. A good bargain for a good rum with reasonably complex character.

This rum combines the benefits of Port and cane spirit. Its wide range of nuances in the nose goes from raisin and prune to slight chocolate and cookie all the way to tobacco and oaky notes.

The main palate carries port with surrounding seales 10. The aftermath is full, slightly sweet and very satisfying.

This is very good, but not exactly to my liking. Should I rate it lower for that? I don't think so. Just because I might have paid a little too much for a high end mixer, it won't be the first time. It won't stop me from trying the next Foursquare/Seale offering. They make a mean rum. Try them all, and you will easily like way more than you don't.

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!

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.
