Solid Foursquare - brings everything you'd expect from the standard range and is perhaps a tad more approachable than its predecessors. The tart spicy notes remain present, however, and the rest of the profile is paradetypical as well. So one should not expect big surprises.

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 😋😋😋

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.

Very good Foursquare, which brings everything you expect. Quite spicy and peppery (in a positive sense) on the palate, plus tropical fruits and some glue. Great rum from Barbados!

Somewhat more spicy and peppery in the snide vs its peers from other vintages.

A gourmet and spicy Foursquare. Very well balanced. Always a good value.

A particularly successful Foursquare. The nose offers a nice balance between dried and tropical fruits, wood, chocolate, caramel, spices, solvent and glue. In the mouth, we find an intense and complex framework, with a powerful attack on woody and spicy notes, accompanied by greediness with chocolate, caramel and coconut. Roasted notes are also felt. The finish is warm and equally expressive with notes of tobacco and cocoa to support, the caramel finishing with sweetness. A greedy, complex and very high quality Foursquare.

Genauso lecker wie der 2008er.

Charred oak and spices come through very strong.

Classic Foursquare with bourbon aging.A slight chemical undertone that the others do not have and make this vintage interesting. Creamy with water cookie dough. Perfectly integrated alcohol, round balanced but not very complex. (That's what the 2004 does best.)Otherwise nothing new under the sun. A great sipper at a bargain price.

Mal etwas anders als seine Vorgänger 2005, 2007 und 2008. gefällt mir sehr gut. Sehr guter Foursquare.

Realy good as usual for a foursquare

Un beau vernis avec des fruits tropicaux en premier nez, les fruits entrent aussitôt dans la partie. Profondeur et complexité. Énergie et dynamisme. En bouche une douceur étonnante avec un beau développement aromatique. La finale est sur les fruits tropicaux, les agrumes et la vanille. Un autre très bon Foursquare, profond et équilibré mais plus dynamique que le Diadem ce qui lui donne un petit avantage

Très bon, comme d’habitude chez foursquare. J’ai quand même préféré le 2008.

Velmi solidní rum, klasický Foursquare profil (dřevo, vanilka, sušené ovoce, kokos), v chuti trochu drsnější než jeho předchůdci.

Gefällt mir besser als der Shibboleth, Geschmacksintensiver und voller

den 2009er zusammen mit dem 2008er verkostet, beide mit identischen ‚Leistungsdaten‘, deshalb auch mit sehr ähnlichem Profil. An der Nase kommen bei beiden die Bourbon-Eichenfass-Noten schön durch, ohne zu aufdringlich zu sein. Beim 2008er empfinfe ich den Alkohol jedoch etwas stechender. Der 2009er ist hier etwas runder und ‚karamelliger’. Am Gaumen wiederum ist dieser Unterschied nicht vorhanden.

Un FS dans la lignée de ses prédécesseurs classique et ultra efficace.

Awesome!!! I discovered Foursquare with the 2007, so I went to find the last 2009 vintage. I love this Foursquare, superb rum with a lot of vanilla, coconut and a tobacco finish. Happy to have a bottle on my bar! ❤️🇧🇧

Richtig schöner foursquare. Tolle intensiv fruchtige und kräftige Nase, geschmacklich dann eine Explosion aus karamellisierter Banane, gegrillter Ananas, Zartbitterschokolade mit etwas Chili und schönen Fassnoten. Der macht Spaß! Nicht zu wuchtig und dennoch schön Süffig und komplex 🤤
