„Very nice Foursquare, which I blindly even put in the direction of very good Guyana Column Rum.“

„Very nice Foursquare, classic, deep, fruity as you like. Quite hard at the opening of the bottle, perfect after a few months of opening the bottle. Coconut, a little varnish, tropical fruits on the nose which continues with an expressive mouth where licorice dominates.a very nice expression! Even better a little more oxidized.“

„Extremely tasty number that is dominated mainly by the floral tones of rose and Thai flight mango, which then alternate again with nutty and chocolaty flavors. Mega exciting, extremely sweet and just such a complexity is very rarely the case with Foursquare. For me absolutely outstanding! Too bad I did not grab here at the time 🙈It has become one of my favorite sipping rums.“

„#16th dec RumXCalendar Blind tasting: Nose: coconut, fruity, woody, vanilla, alcoholic, spicy Mouth: coconut, orange peal, woody, spicy, cocoa Finish: long, oak, woody, toasted, roasted, sweet, coconut. Delicious I enjoyed this one a lot. Until today i’ve tried 3-4 different foursquares, but they doesn’t really blow my mind. This FS really changed my mind, it’s delicious and the alcohol is much better integrated, unfortunately the actual price tag is way too high. This is from Foursquare ca. 60% approx. 15 Years“

„RumX Advent 16.12.22 N: Schoko, getrocknete Früchte, leicht seifig, schärfe, Vanille, konzentriert, Fass, Melasse, Gebäck, Sirup, dezent blumig, Kokosnuss M: stimmig zur Nase, noch mehr Würze, Piment, Minze, getoastet A: Pfirsich, trocken, schokolade Sehr konzentrierte und komplexer Geschmack. Ich schwankte zwischen NY 94 und Albion. Habe mich dann für Yarmouth entschieden. Leider daneben. Schoko/Kokos Profil hat mich in eine andere Richtung gelotst. Leckerer Rum, geschmeidig und vollmundig.“

„Toller Foursquare von Velier. Sowohl Qualität als auch Geschmacksprofil Standard, also nicht wirklich was Neues. Schöne Nase mit Kokos und wundervollem Holz, wunderbar warmes Mundgefühl. Alkohol perfekt integriert. Meiner Meinung steht Foursquare die Reifung in Bourbon-Fässern am besten.“

„Ziemlich guter Foursquare, komplexes Feuerwerk aus Karamell, tropischen Früchten, Holz, Kakao und Gewürzen. Auf die Schärfe im Mund war ich nicht vorbereitet, aber beim zweiten Schluck oder mit etwas Wasser geht es besser. Ansonsten sehr bitter, pelzig und schwer im Mund. Im Mund und Nachgang gibt es eine Komponente, die mir nicht wirklich zusagt. Die Nase ist aber sehr lecker :-)“

„Un Foursquare très savoureux qui s’ouvre avec des notes de vernis, suivies de bois, d’épices, de vanille et de caramel, puis des fruits tropicaux, des agrumes et des fruits secs et enfin des arômes de cuir et de brioche qui apportent de la profondeur à ce rhum au nez très variée. Le rhum est complexe en bouche, intense et porté par les fruits tropicaux, des notes cacaotées, toastées et épicées, le tabac, le toffee et le boisé. Les arômes s’entremêlent et sont très bien intégrés, tout comme l’alcool. La finale, assez longue, s’ouvre sur des saveurs plus terreuses et fraîches, avec une pointe salée avant de se fondre sur des notes toastées, épicées et chocolatées. Un excellent Foursquare, un must try qui est encore abordable.“

„Verkostet im Rahmen des RumX Adventkalenders 2022. Aber wegen einem schlimmen “Weihnachtsfeier-Kater” nicht blind sondern erst am nächsten Morgen. Ich hatte bisher keinen Foursquare, der mir geschmeckt hat und ging überkritisch aber auch gleichzeitig hoffnungsvoll an diese Verkostung. Der Rum ist sehr sehr gut und bringt interessante Facetten in das Profil, das ich als eher langweilig empfinde. Wird auch in Zukunft nicht meine Lieblingsfedtillerie werden, aber ich bin froh, diesen Rum probiert zu haben. Alles in Allem sehe ich mich belehrt und bestätigt gleichzeitig. So, jetzt freue ich mich auf den letzten Schluck 😉 Edit: habe den Nachgeschmack noch lange genossen und korrigiere nochmal nach oben 🤤“
