Foursquare 5y old rum.
I was surprised by this rum. I expected a young and harsh rum. I mean Foursquare can make rum, no question about that, I enjoyed also the 8y old Doorlys and the XO. But I don't get much from the label and thought that's a usual alcohol for mixing. But I got a good natural and mild rum, with nice flavours.
It's not complex, don't expect too much.
The flavours are not very intensive, but when you love natural rum try this one.
You get good value for the price. It's in some ways similar to RL Seals and Plantation One Time Limited Barbados rum.
Smell: vanilla, some caramel, citrus, white oak
Taste: vanilla, citrus, oak (slightly bitter), some fruits (slightly orange zests) in the background, light spicy
Finish: short, slightly spice
Value (20€): 3/5
This rum is the corolla of rums here in Barbados. Abundant, affordable and the value stays for years. When you want a $5 rum and coke in Barbados make sure the bartender pours this and not eclipse. This rum isn't good enough, its good and there is more than enough! It is unfortunate Bacardi Gold was on the bar, Michael.
RL Seale/Foursquare continues to come up with consistently excellent rums, Old Brigand being pretty good. Unfortunately there are better rums in their stable which provide better satisfaction at the same price point
Figs and coconut on the nose with flavors of cinnamon, raisins, and orange, and with a good bite of alcohol
Though only 43% it has a very O.P. taste.
Smell is slight of Tabacco and caramelised onions. Crazy I know!
All up.... mix it with cola
Ew. Was on bar with a bacardi gold. Do not recommend.
