Nice and complex aroma, first taste is strong, you can feel the 62% but only warming, not burning. No added sugar, straight rum ih his best form! Long wooden aftertaste. Definitely must taste for experienced rum lovers.

bedste rom jeg nogensinde har smagt.... lækker balance som gør man slet ikke mærker alkoholen

După cum spuneam, probabil cel mai bun rom din lume.. Inca nu am gustat Destino :))

Had this in Barbados and it was lovely as all Foursquare rums are.

Really really a top rum.
Probably not for beginners but you can’t expect much more from a rum.
The nose is divine and the length is never ending.
Probably the palate has room for improvement (for my taste) but really one of the best out there

A Velier and Richard Seale collaboration that is very special. A single blended rum distilled in 2008 then a double maturation of 3 years in ex bourbon casks plus a further 6 years in ex sherry casks..
Bottled at 62% , it should raise a few pulses !
A chewy full bodied rum with tons of stone fruit sherry taste notes. Really fills the whole mouth with a long , long finish. Wonderful aftertaste..
If there was a slight criticism , maybe a year or two more in the bourbon and less in the sherry ? But an amazing rum overall.

This is one of the best rum I have a taste. In one word, Sublime! Great Choice! Excelent job Richard Seale!

Tried Principia and Patrimonio and it was one of the best rum I have tried. Looking forward to try more of the Foursquare Rums.

Då har även min butelj kommit! Bort med folien fort fort, förväntningarna är återigen skyhöga av alla tidigare lovord och hyllningar.
Färgen och doften i glaset wow!😳 Lite vanilj, torkade frukter som plommon och russin, ekfat. Den höga procenten gör sig inte till känna, ljuvligt helt enkelt. Till och med min ej romdrickande fru tycker att det doftar blommor. 😁 Tar den första slurken och känner direkt en viss sötma som jag inte hade väntat mig. Bourbonfaten och sherryn tar för sig, mer torkad frukt. Den påminner mig mycket om Ron Esclavo Xo cask med en nertonad sötma och torrare avslut, vilken rom, fantastisk! Jaha vafan nu då?! Nu vill hon smaka också.😳😆
Måste tillägga att längden var fenomenal.
Principian landar alla gånger på pallplats.

Foursquare always deliver good quality rum.
With ABV 62 I think this is a bit too sharp on alcohol to the nose an taste. Don’t really feel it coming up from the glass, but let it breath for a while and it will turn out more pleasant. I feel coconut and heavy licorice notes. In overall a really interesting rum for the experienced drinker!
