Nose: Summer fruit pudding, bags of strawberries, raspberries and plums. Some definite oak but light and soft oak, delicate caramel, vanilla and some molasses. Some spirity notes and a touch of varnish. The nose it at one time light, fruity and floral, slightly grassy and then at the same time you can feel deep brooding pudding smells are lurking. It’s a nose that makes you want to take a big mouthful of the waiting rum.

Palate: Thick, full mouth feel, coating but not cloying. Sweet delivery with loads and loads of fruit, you can really get the wine casks in this. Strawberries, raspberries and plums again, some pomegranate, and then a big whoosh of candy floss/cotton candy. Oaky mid-palate and then moves on to toffee, butterscotch, butter and baking spices. There is a little touch of licorice, vanilla pod and something almost savory in there too hiding at the back; paprika or Garam Marsala. Dry coconut as things move to the finish.

Finish: Long. Drier than the palate but still sweet. Strawberries and fresh whipped cream, milk chocolate and maple. That coconut from the end of the palate stays into the finish and then it starts to get spicy with some white pepper, clove and a touch of ginger but it never bitters.

A rich sweet nose but no real hints of Zinfandel. The palate is unctious, smooth, long with a wonderful touch of alcohol. Dry but with a richness of fruit presumably from the Zin, but it is no way winey. There is sometimes a criticism some (but not me) level at the 9yo Port Finish, that it has too much influence of Port, but there is no problems with this one. A really superb rum at a reasonable price. I used to bemoan the fact that there weren't enough good rums from Barbados, but RL Seale is showing that there are some absolute stunners. Bottled at 43%, while the Port is at 40%

I've been waiting for this one to come to the states after loving the 2004 Single Barrel and the Port Cask and I wasn't disappointed. It shows how you can make a smooth and complex tasting rum without adding tons of sugar and additives and just letting the cask give the rum its smoothness. I'll definitely be buying this one again.

No added sugar or flavors. Everything is coming from distilling and barrel aging. I am interested to learn where foursquare is getting their zin barrels from. The nose is extremely heady and floral. In a blind tasting I would probably never guess wine but knowing it's there sends you searching and it is indeed detectable, floating up top in the back of the nose. The palate is rich and thankfully it's bottled at 43%. I can't help but wonder how the blender came to this ratio of bourbon and zin and how the line can be tipped one way or the other.
I bought this along with the amazing 2004 so I could gain side by side perspective. The zin has far less charred white oak that so dominates the 2004! This gives it a multi dimentional quality and would be perfect pairing with a well rounded charcuterie platter.

Bottom line, these R.L. Seale rums in the Foursquare line are stellar.
Unless your favorite rum is El Dorado 12, in which case I'm truly sorry for you, your going to want to get this.
A note on packaging... It's bare bones no frills screw cap bottling and thats okay. Whats inside truly speaks for itself.

molasses. dry rum. 43% 86 proof
i smell elements of almond with a fruity unerlayer.
i taste marzipan and sweet fruit at the start. then it turns into apricot and peppery notes with the finish of sweet grapes.
10/10 - drop 5 points if you love the real sweet stuff on the rum market.
worth every cent.
in the whole this rum is real good. soft and mild with elements of almond and some cherry. fruity with a touch of apricot. very smooth. mild peppery notes.
a masterpiece. the aging in the zinfandel cask makes the difference especially at the start!
one of the best rums i met in 2016 :).

Herkomst: Barbados
Distilleerderij: Foursquare
Kleur: Bruine Rum
ABV: 43 %
Fles: 3cl (MoM Dram)

Deze mooie rum heeft vijf jaar op bourbon vaten gerijpt en nog eens zes jaar op Californische Zinfadel wijnvaten.

Er is geen suiker en/of kleurstoffen toegevoegd.

Zeer zachte alcohol burn, licht zoet, medium body. molasses, hout, brood, rozijnen en tropisch fruit proef ik. Lange nasmaak.

Weer een aanrader van Foursquare.

Beautiful rum with butterscotch,caramel, toffee and coffe aroma and some fruity notes.In mouth, the pastry take the lead with lot of fruits, vanilla and oaky notes and slightly bitter. Long aftertaste. Never taste that before, very interesting.
