Slightly sour initial punch, too much for my taste. Then finishes with a rubbery finish and a hint of a surprising spice. An oily coating lasts for a little while.

Not a great mix mix with cola

Had a chance to sample this excellent Bajan offering from RL Seale, who should be appointed President of Rum or something. King, maybe. Anyway, this is a masterful blend of column and pot still rums which result in a superbly smooth and full-bodied drink which has a little funk and spice in the finish. It is not sweet, so if you're a fan of sugared rums you'll hate this. I love it straight up. Very tasty indeed.

On the complex nose i pick up notes of molasses, chocolate, orange, vanilla, coffee, oak and banana. It open's up real nicely after breathing for a while. On the medium bodied, oily palette I find rounded oak, juicy orange and baking spices. It's refined quality rum, but with a little bite at the same time. The balance is just spot on. The finish is medium long with nice, slightly dry and warming tingles, perhaps imparted by the last 4 years of maturation spent in former Jack Daniel's barrel's. Simply one of my favorite rums. Foursquare know's their stuff.

I actually thought this run was better with a little coke. It helped open the flavors and the spice gave it a nice touch.

I quite complex rum that tastes vanilla and chocolate but also a little bit spicy. There’s quite lot of pricewhorty rums from Barbados, and this is one of them.

Good, nice oakey adventure. healthy level of foliage and a decent underbrush make for a quality tasting experience.

40% , I noticed the original was 43%.
Nice bottle and design , looks classy.
On opening the bottle I get fruits and spices , reminded you strongly of Christmas cake. It does fade quite quickly though. Plenty of heat in the mouth , getting vanilla , little bit of caramel. What lets this down in my humble opinion is the finish.. very bland and flat. So , no sipper for me but an excellent mixer. The Doorlys 12 and Real McCoy 12 are better and from the same Foursquare stable.

As a single malt and bourbon regular I found this easy drinking. Brown sugar , sweet molasses. A fine starter for ten.

Although its not my favourite 12 year old, it’s both enjoyable and extremely well priced. Smooth, with a little bite. Sweet, but not too sweet. Not as complex as some, but a very well balanced tipple.

A great rum for the price. Smooth and tasty. Will continue to look out for this and grab a bottle when I see it.

Note: I'm a sipper. My opinion is based on sipping characteristics.

After having the entire bottle, I'm leaning more towards 6, but let's be a bit generous here. For a 12-year old, I'd say it does not possess many characteristics that would distinguish it from way younger alternatives, let alone rums in its own league. In fact, I was struggling to find a definitive character in this one. It simply lacks one. A well rounded, totally smooth, sweet and mindbogglingly fruity. That "tropically aged" line stands for something all right. And that's all about it. Felt exactly like way younger and cheaper Ron Esclavo Gran Reserva and in a blind test I'd be struggling to tell the difference. If you are into "fruity" rums, this is a good one. But if you are more of a Flor de CaΓ±a type of sipper, there are better alternatives.
