Bottled at 46% aged in madeira & bourbon casks. Unadultraded rum from what I am quickly realizing as the vanguard rum distillery Four Square form Barbados. If you see it get it without hesitation.
Fantastic limited barrel aged rum. An absolute no brainer buy.

Bought me 2*3cl sample of this great rum from a member in a Swedish rum group.
This Limited Edition of The Real McCoy, aged for 12 Years, are a blend of Pot and Column still rum. This version is released at ABV 46% instead of 40% for the original. Another difference compared to the original is that this Ltd Ed is a mix of rum aged in ex-bourbon casks (90%) and ex-Madeira casks (10%) while the original only were aged in ex-bourbon casks.
The nose is quite intense, floral and balanced with a little sweetness. I recognize vanilla, fruits, toffee and some hints of coconut.
In mouth and palate it’s still intense but also spicy and woody. I recognize pepper, ginger and a little bitterness.
The finish is rather long and spicy and I also recognize hints of citrus.
Overall a very intense, rich and well balanced rum.

Velice příjemný, dobře pitelný FQ. S nejlepšími rumy z této palírny soupeřit asi nemůže, ale doporučuji ochutnat.

The Madeira really shines. Smooth coconut like mouth feel

I have a problem with private branding of others products, even if it slightly changed. This is no FourSquare, just an over priced rum with an extra middle man and marketting company. Why not just buy the real deal from the guy who makes it. Don’t get me wrong it was a decent full body dark aged real rum with some character, but not an 8, 9, 10

The bump in proof really makes this shine. The sweetness (created without additives, just impressive use of barrels) is absolutely perfect. My favorite style of rum, if you can call it that, are these wine finished spirits that impart sweetness while not being sweet. Masterfully done.

The color is dark, probably imparted by the Madeira casks. The nose hits you with coconut, plums, brown sugar, subtle overly ripe bananas, sweet tobacco and leather. Given a little time, it's extremely inviting. Apart from the Madeira ageing, this is also a slightly beefed up version of the original 12 year, weighing in at 46% vol. The taste is very full and devolps quickly with dark notes of leather, tobacco, roasted coconut, and slightly spicy pepper. There's an underlying and rounded sweetness underpinning the power perfectly. This is bloody good and pure old barbadian rum. Love it.

I had this side by side with the Real McCoy 12-Year and I think they're both very similar and very close. I slightly prefer the regular Real McCoy 12-Year.

I find that stronger rums are better if they're very highly rated to me, and this one is right on the borderline where the regular version is still just barely better to me.

Smells and tastes of oak, bourbon, caramel, and spice. Smooth for 46%abv. Almost a tie with regular 12-Year, though again I slightly prefer that one.

The color is lighter brown hue, the label claims no "artificial colors or additives", so if something "natural" like tannin infusion was used, I cannot say. I would not mind, since color adjustments is defacto standard practice of the industry, bar some independent bottlers.

The nose is intense and pleasant, especially after adding a splash of water (recommended, since it's a 46 ABV rum), harmonious notes of gingerbread, apricots, dried apples.

The palate is on the sweet side, more apricots, brown cake, brown sugar, some vanilla, with pronounced Madeira cask influence, tempered by tannin astringency from the oak, medium-bodied with lingering, pleasant, warm finish.

The main selling point is the perfect harmony of this rum, both on the nose and on the palate. Currently my favorite rum.

Aroma is nice full of forest fruits. Taste is sweet (but no added sugar) with long and complex aftertaste. Very good rum.
