An old school solid diamond! Full of taste. 59% but smooth to the end. Leaves you with an oaky aftertaste that lasts for long. Even a little expensive it woths every cent! In my opinion counts as the paradigm of cask strenght str8 rums.

Ratings are relatively high for it, and descriptions are well within my palate, so I expected to like it a lot better than I did. Foursquare has a reputation for making high quality sipping rums, and it's a well-deserved reputation. But even the best distilleries can't be perfect.

I find it oddly syrupy. Premise (the first Foursquare rum I reviewed) was... thinner?... and I found it easier to drink because of that. I'm betting that's because of the additional aging in sherry casks, which 2005 did not benefit from.

You can definitely taste the bourbon-barrel aging, because it has that characteristic burn. And luckily, that burn disappears pretty quickly. But there's something in there that's just... a little too much.

I don't regret the purchase. Far from it... I'm glad to own it. It will be sipped until the bottle is empty. I don't hate it. I just don't like it as much as I thought I would.

A nice touch of heat on the backend. Ultra ultra smooth. Very well balanced.

Cask strength at 59%, and single barrel with no added sugar. Let it breethe for 5 minutes, and zip...heaven appears

Her er en rom på 59% hvilket man mærker. Men med en fantastisk fylde

Richard Seale is known for producing the best Barbados rum in the world, this is why. Complex, peppery, brine? caramel nose. High ABV oaky, bourbon barrel aged with some chocolate, fruity flavors, dry but exceptionally smooth for the high ABV. No added sugar, this is a huge factor for where rum standards are headed. Now I also enjoy El Dorado 12, albeit with added sugar, but I still love it. I also love this and respect what Richard Seale is doing, Barbados is supposed the birthplace of rum and I generally only drink certain islands’ rum, Jamaican, Barbados, Demerara and Cuba/Puerto Rico. The history of rum is fascinating to me as a native of Florida, my heart belongs to the Caribbean and West Indies. This gets a 10 for many reasons but most of all the strength, rum is supposed to be strong and complex, I give high marks for pot still, and pot still is the true origin of rum. This is a combo of pot and column still, delightful!

Most see 2005 > 2004 but not me. They're pretty close but I'd give the 2004 the nod. The 2005 is still better than most rums on the market.

Botella Standard de Foursquare, para tales rones uno desearía una botella mas exclusiva. Lindo color del ron.
En nariz la madera se hace presente, algo de especias, vainilla, coco, piña y claro, etanol.
En boca exactamente lo mismo...increiblemente suave para tal volumen alcohólico. Me gusta mucho aunque su hermano mayor del 2004 es mas rico.

This 2005 is very similar to the 2004 that was also aged in bourbon casks and the nose is almost impossible to tell apart since I still have a bottle of the 2004 in my collection. The first sip is a doozy because of being 59% ABV but after the initial shock you are left with a very complex rum with hints of dried fruit and vanilla coming through with the oak but the natural sweetness balances everything out. I think this rum benefits for giving it a few minutes to breathe in the glass if you're not too anxious to sip it. Another solid rum from Foursquare!

Cask strength rum with peppery oak notes. Dry finish. A strong sipper at 60% abv.
