Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is a solid white rum, nothing spectacular though. Fairly mild flavor for the amount of burn, not offensive in any way though
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 the Veritas, but this the brand name used for the US market.
Nose: ripe banana.
Taste: Ripe tropical fruits, very creamy, and sweet in a good way.
After taste is even better, the fruit flavor dominate your palate for long time.
I will need to try it on cocktails but damn I already love it like that.
Best of both worlds, truly a masterpiece. Hampden and Foursquare come together with fireworks! My two favorite distilleries in one bottle? I'll be buying a case...
(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.
Sipping, just great with a lot of pineapple and bananas on the nose, along with burnt caramel. Then on the palate, bananas, funk, anise, and some cedar or pencil shavings. A bit hot at first, but, really lovely to hang out with for a while.
You have both on this site, and some have rated this one on the Veritas page.
I think this ranks with some of my other whites, but a little too much funk . . . and not the 9 or 10 I was hoping for . . . aren't we all? As seen below, the label makes a statement. Good for Foursquare and Richard Seale. Keep up all you work for and stand for. Another worthy product!
Is the Veritas a similarly top choice? I don't know. I haven't tried it. Not sure it available to me in the US.
Pretty new to the rum world and am more into cocktails than neat spirits. Makes an absolutely killer daiquiri, fantastic in cocktails.
I recently purchased two bottles of Probitas Rum which is completely out of character for me as I only drink “aged rum” neat. I only made an exception since this 47% ABV rum originates from Foursquare distillery in Barbados and was curious how Richard Seale would pull this one off. My expectations were low given this is a white rum and one does notusually drink white rum neat. Well I was surprised and NOT surprised… Surprised at how a white rum sipped neat could taste so good and NOT surprised as it came out of Foresquare distillery. I can well imagine those making cocktails with this rum mus5 be thrilled. Probitas is NOT a sipping rum but is so good I am drinking mine neat and will get a few more bottles before they are all gone.
I picked this one up to mix up some holiday cocktails, but it’s absolutely pleasant and drinkable on its own over a single ice cube. Very smooth. Just enough front end funk to keep it interesting, but without much burn. Buy with confidence.
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.
