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.
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.
Aroma is nice full of forest fruits. Taste is sweet (but no added sugar) with long and complex aftertaste. Very good rum.
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.
Picture: My emptied samples poured in a glass.
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
Schönes sattes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase sind die Holznoten sehr gewichtig, werden aber sehr elegant von Karamell und kandierten tropischen Früchten getragen.
Im Gaumen weich und angenehm warm, frisch gebranntes Karamell, frisch getoastetes Holz, frisch geschälte Früchte, frisch gemahlene Gewürze, um nur Einige zu nennen.
Im Abgang wunderbar lang, nach Holz und Karamell.
Ein super Barbados Rum für Liebhaber des "puren" Rums. Nichts für Süss-Rum Geniesser. 8+
Beautiful rich amber in a glass.
In the nose the wood notes are very weighty, but are carried very elegantly by caramel and candied tropical fruits.
On the palate soft and pleasantly warm, freshly burnt caramel, freshly toasted wood, freshly peeled fruits, freshly ground spices, to name but a few.
In the finish wonderfully long, after wood and caramel.
A super Barbados rum for lovers of "pure" rum. Nothing for sweet rum connoisseurs. 8+
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.
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.
