Decent rum, better as a mix than sipping. The 896 8 year is a much better sipping.

at first i was iffy, but the more i drank it, the more i liked it. definitely a little different then what i was expecting / used to, but not bad. probably wonโ€™t buy this specific blend again, but i donโ€™t dislike it. so 6/10 seems fair. 100% a mixer to me as well.

This rum was nice and makes a good mixer, but it does not stand up to it's older brother.

I was so impressed with my new bottle of 896 8-Year after a month that I went back to Total Wine to restock that one and get this one to compare side by side. Well, the 8-Year still stands head and shoulders above this one. Then it came time for the overall ranking of this one. I compared it to my Doorly's 5 Year, which narrowly edged this one out, and at half the price. I no longer see any reason to buy this rum unless the store is out of Doorly's 5 Year and 896 8-Year. It still rates as a 5, but there is simply way too much competition out there.

Update: This is the first rum that I have tried that can ruin a perfectly good coconut water and a perfectly good cola (separate drinks, of course). Since it is not good enough to sip neat or on the rocks, I desperately tried mixing it with a very good ginger ale. That saved it. So I cannot recommend this rum, but highly recommend it's 8 Year older brother. The two are like night and day.

Light golden color like Doorlyโ€™s 5 & 8. Exceeded my expectations for a $15 rum but not my thing. Good to have for novice rum and coke or soda drinkers. The 8 year is far superior.

Rating for this one reflects the taste and a $15.00 price. Flavor was okay straight, with a strongish afterburn, but when combined with coke and the price, the rating gets better.

Good for the price but also a mixer for me. Mor similar to Doorly's than other Foursquare offerings.

I like it but Mount Gay and Foursquare make better sipping rums. Although 896 is price right. Worth having.

Thanks to Total Wine in DE for the amazing selection of rums. This is an interesting complex rum that has some nice dark flavors. I would give it a 7 1/2 if possible and it is a good value. If you like a more mature version (that is aged and not sweet) of a dark spiced rum,this is an option. Unfortunately, there are so many, better alternatives that it will be a while before I try it again.
