Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Surprised that at 63% abv it didn’t kick, peppery and oaky a bit harsh but in a good way…nose burns but again as expected for 63%. Friends say chocolate and fig notes
(my first review, take this with a grain of salt)
Nose: Very sweet, with a light fruit scent reminiscent of other young Jamaicans (albeit MUCH less pronounced and more sweet than savory), banana, with hints of molasses.
Palate: Hints of pineapple, orange, burnt sugar, candy corn. Very smooth, not much alcohol flavor.
Tail: Mostly burnt sugar, with a little pepperiness.
Overall, a very solid light rum, and one of my favorites of its kind in my collection. I'm partial to very aggressive overproofs and Jamaicans though, so I would usually look for something with a bit more character to it when reaching for a sipping rum. However, I'd definitely go for this one if I needed a light, less out-there rum for a cocktail or to give my palate a break.
This is supposed to be a stellar mixing rum, but damn is pretty good for sipping. Very creamy feeling and you can taste some funkiness. This is the same as the Veritas, but this the brand name used for the US market.
Nose: ripe banana.
Taste: Ripe tropical fruits, very creamy, and sweet in a good way.
After taste is even better, the fruit flavor dominate your palate for long time.
I will need to try it on cocktails but damn I already love it like that.
A mix of Foursquare and Hampden this is probably the best lightly aged white rum you can snag and only $30. Don’t sleep on it. This is the go-to. Daiquiri, done. Ti’Punch too.
We all love a toasty Jamaican rum and a light, fruity Barbadian rum. This bottle brings the best of both worlds and presents numerous possibilities. Sipping neat and on the rocks is a smile-inducing experience, led through the bodies of two very separate flavour profiles using the same taste buds separate from a cocktail. Speaking of mixed drinks, it is also a fun tool for bartenders who mix their rums. While less of a daiquiri base in my opinion, it finds a comfy home in mai tais and honeysuckles.
Best of both worlds, truly a masterpiece. Hampden and Foursquare come together with fireworks! My two favorite distilleries in one bottle? I'll be buying a case...
Sipping, just great with a lot of pineapple and bananas on the nose, along with burnt caramel. Then on the palate, bananas, funk, anise, and some cedar or pencil shavings. A bit hot at first, but, really lovely to hang out with for a while.
Good daquiri and flavour of both Barbados and Jamaica .. what is not to love in rum ....both my favourite islands ..
My second Foursquare rum. My second reason to question “why all the hype”? Again, clearly a quality rum. But Plantation 3 star blows this away and costs 30% less! I will continue to try Foursquare rums. I am certain I will find one that will substantiate the hype. I know a bar by me that has The Sagacity. That will be my next Foursquare test. But as of right now Foursquare is all marketing. Brilliant marketing as I see it. They are the Wall Drug of liquor. Long on words and reputation, short on substance.
You have both on this site, and some have rated this one on the Veritas page.
I think this ranks with some of my other whites, but a little too much funk . . . and not the 9 or 10 I was hoping for . . . aren't we all? As seen below, the label makes a statement. Good for Foursquare and Richard Seale. Keep up all you work for and stand for. Another worthy product!
Is the Veritas a similarly top choice? I don't know. I haven't tried it. Not sure it available to me in the US.
A slightly toned down version of the current caribbean white rums on the market now. I like this in an El Presidente cocktail. Great mouth feel with the vermouth and Curacao. I don't much like this with citrus in a sour cocktail.
Price point is great for what you're getting.
I love the color too. Slightly yellow.
