Another wonderful Exceptional Cask that I received a few of yesterday. This one was so god I had a double dip :-) Price to quality is extremely good and I will order more backup bottles. Complex and well balanced and a true foursquare from nose to finish. Having a go at this one again and the fruityness is very nice.

A really really good Foursquare and with the big advantage of not being too rare so it’s easier to get hold of. I could still not help myself and bought 4 bottles, just to be able to have it as my daily goto rum, yummy 😋😋😋

Guter Foursquare!

Solider Foursquare - bringt alles, was man von der Standardrange erwarten darf und ist vielleicht einen Ticken zugänglicher als seine Vorgänger. Grosse Überraschungen sollte man aber nicht erwarten.

Un Foursquare particulièrement réussi. Le nez offre un bel équilibre entre les fruits secs et tropicaux, le bois, le chocolat, le caramel, les épices, le solvant et la colle. En bouche, on retrouve une trame intense et complexe, avec une attaque puissante sur des notes boisées et pimentées, accompagnées par la gourmandise avec le chocolat, le caramel et la noix de coco. Des notes rôties se font également ressentir. La finale se veut chaude et tout aussi expressive avec des notes de tabac et de cacao à l’appui, le caramel finissant avec douceur. Un Foursquare gourmand, complexe et de très haute facture.

Charred oak and spices come through very strong.

Klassischer Foursquare mit Bourbon-Reifung. Ein leicht chemischer Unterton, den die anderen nicht haben und diesen Jahrgang interessant machen. Mit Wasser Keksteig chremig. Perfekt integrierter Alkohol, rund ausgewogen aber nicht sehr komplex. (Das kann der 2004 am besten.) Ansonsten nichts Neues unter der Sonne. Ein toller Sipper zum Sonderpreis.
