I didn't enjoy this as a sipper, but it works great as a mixer. Full disclosure, I put a birch stick in it for several weeks before using it as a mixer. I made an El Presidente with it that was excellent. The Jamaican funk came through just enough to really amplify the cocktail. I offered a sip to my wife and never got it back.

Next step is to see how it does as the base for my homemade spiced rum.

This is supposed to be a stellar mixing rum, but damn is pretty good for sipping. Very creamy feeling and you can taste some funkiness. This is the same as Veritas, but this is the brand name used for the US market.
Nose: ripe banana.
Taste: Ripe tropical fruits, very creamy, and sweet in a good way.
The aftertaste is even better, the fruit flavor dominates your palate for a long time.
I will need to try it on cocktails but damn I already love it like that.

A mix of Foursquare and Hampden this is probably the best lightly aged white rum you can snag and only $30. Don’t sleep on it. This is the go-to. Daiquiri, done. Ti’Punch too.

(my first review, take this with a grain of salt)

Nose: Very sweet, with a light fruit scent reminiscent of other young Jamaicans (albeit MUCH less pronounced and more sweet than savory), banana, with hints of molasses.
Palate: Hints of pineapple, orange, burnt sugar, candy corn. Very smooth, not much alcohol flavor.
Tail: Mostly burnt sugar, with a little pepperiness.

Overall, a very solid light rum, and one of my favorites of its kind in my collection. I'm partial to very aggressive overproofs and Jamaicans though, so I would usually look for something with a bit more character to it when reaching for a sipping rum. However, I'd definitely go for this one if I needed a light, less out-there rum for a cocktail or to give my palate a break.

My second Foursquare rum. My second reason to question “why all the hype”? Again, clearly a quality rum. But Plantation 3 star blows this away and costs 30% less! I will continue to try Foursquare rums. I am certain I will find one that will substantiate the hype. I know a bar by me that has The Sagacity. That will be my next Foursquare test. But as of right now Foursquare is all marketing. Brilliant marketing as I see it. They are the Wall Drug of liquor. Long on words and reputation, short on substance.

Mild nose, good hogo on the tongue, nice burn but short finish, almost clear color. I appreciate the 94 proof. This is a white blend of Foursquare column still Barbados and Hampden double retort pot still in Jamaican. Best sipping white in my experience. Love the quote from the label: “unsullied by sophistic additives”. Meaning, no sugar or color post distillation (by law in those countries). Looking forward to a trial in a cocktail. Highly recommend for a white (beige) rum.

First white rum I’ve really enjoyed on its own and not in a cocktail

Probitas is well regarded and somehow still underrated. A blend of Foursquare and Hampden and you get the best qualities of both. Smooth sipper with a bit of funk, and works well in a huge variety of cocktails due to the subtlety yet complexity of flavor. Everyone should have in their bar.

This is a decent white rum with a respectable 94 proof. I wouldn't recommend it for sipping, but it does a respectable job as a mixer. I prefer Bacardi Gran Reserva Maestro de Ron for a white rum, but unfortunately I am down to my last bottle of that. The Probitas works great in a daiquiri, but is not what I am looking for in a rum and Coke or Cuba Libre.

I probably won't restock this when it is out, but I have had a lot worse light rums.
