I finally managed to fetch myself this nice little treasure! Cost me a bit more (98 euros total pricing), but now that i am savoring the thing, it was actually well-worth it! The box is craftily designed and highly original. Color of the liquid is magnificent and eye-catching. The smell is deep, clean and subtle, not strong, but very pleasing nonetheless, refined and sophisticated. The texture feels extremely smooth, velvety, without harshness, despite the high alcohol percentage. It goes down merrily, simply feels great to drink! Warms your throat inside out and while exhaling, a unique feeling of euphoria overcomes you, momentarily dominating your senses! The lingering aftertaste is outstanding and remains for quite some time post your sip, filling your mouth with an unparalleled, blissful sensation! This is a real winner and absolutely fabulous! Highly recommended! Special thanks are in order, to the people who insisted for me to buy this one first, before the other rums in my list!!!
The internet loves Foursquare rums. Based on many recommendations, I've so far tried Doorly's 12 and R L Seales and now the 14. I have to say, I just don't get the hype. They are fine rums, but fairly expensive in my country. This 14 is dry and hot, with some oak and just the slightest hint of complex flavour I can't quite put my finger on. It is a nice rum, but I feel it is too hot and not distinctive enough to compete with say Appleton's, El Dorado or Pussers 15 which are a good bit cheaper than this. Maybe a good deal in the US, but not where I'm from.
Nose: Canned pineapples marinated in cream liqueur, creme brulee, shaved coconut, and more cream liqueur. It gives a tropical impression, especially with the multitude of fruits: melons, pears, bananas, and green mango skins.
Palate: The fresh Bourbon influence emerges more in the mouth, accented by cinnamon, dried figs, and caramelized apples. Red berry jam. Near the middle of the development, there are suggestions of tobacco leaf and earthiness.
Finish: Fairly long, starting with berries and oak before transitioning into bitter dark chocolate.
Aside from the great smell this rum has, the moment the first drop touches your tongue is when the real journey starts. A lot of pleasant flavours pass your tastebuds and allthough the relatively high alcohol percentage doesn’t go unnoticed, it is one smooth sipper. Comes as close to the Foursquares as you can go.
Great nose, mouthfeel, taste and finish. I like everything about this rum. The 48% ABV are exactly right and give it the necessary intensity. You are definitely going to pick up a lot of Bourbon notes on the nose and palate which I do enjoy a lot.

"Lots of ginger and spicy oak on the initial entry. There is a slightly bDoorly's Fine Old Barbados Rum Aged 14 Years rum review by the fat rum pirateitter note in the oak notes. A slight astringency. Finish wise we are left with a spicy and slightly heated end to the rum."
