I've always been a whiskey guy, so trying Rum that wasn't in a frozen drink was going to be a little different. I was recommended RL Seale and was blown away. I don't typically like really sweet whiskey, so this was perfect. Having no additives or added sugar plays a big role. Leather and wood was the first thing I got when I tried it. The finish was a little sweet, but extremely smooth. This will always be in my bar.
This is decent. Im glad I bought it but not sure I'd buy again. In the 30-50 dollar sipper range there are some that I enjoy a little more, but not by a lot. Tastes nutty, and maybe a little coconut and not a lot of aging wood. It's sweet and easy to drink. I think the closest comparison in flavor in my experience is Flor de Cana 12. They are also similarly priced. In this price range if I had to pick one it would be my favorite Kaniche XO.
I have yet to taste any Foursquare rum which I haven't loved. This is no exception. Great nose of vanilla, oak and some banana. It's got a slightly stronger alcohol smell at first but it dissipated quickly once it breathed a while, which released some fruit scents. In the mouth I got lots of spices and it was so smooth! Residual flavors of nutmeg and black pepper, with that nice vanilla and fruit all in an oaky warmth that slid down my throat. Absolutely fantastic! Flavor-wise I would give it an 8, but it was so surprisingly smooth I had to bump it up to a 9.
This has been on my list for years but has been hard to find in my state, between being terminally sold out and shipping alcohol from out of state being illegal for so long (dumb blue laws). I finally got lucky tonight, and this one is simply wonderful. The nose is a little nutty/toasty. The initial sip provides a subtle, peppery burn that slowly expands from your tongue to the roof of your mouth before hitting your your throat and chest. That gives way to a buttery mix of nuts, oak, dryly sweet vanilla, and caramel. This rum is much more complex than the initial burn leads you to believe, and in only the best definition of the word. Best $25 I’ve ever spent. Buy with confidence. It’s a keeper.
Bit of a punch on the first sip. Mellows as you drink Caramel, Walnut, Cola at the end. Good mixer. Decent sipper.
Naozaj dobrý bajansky rum z Barbadosu. Kto chce začať piť rumy Foursquare, tak toto je v začiatkoch povinnosť. Jemný 10 rocny rum, oriešky, vanilka, nádych ovocia. V dozvuky znatelne mandle. Pekne pitie
