“#25th B dec RumXCalendar Blind tasting: Nose: spicy, roasted Mouth: spicy, roasted, mocha Finish: long, astringend, mocha, roasted, oak, cognac This is one of the few rums I personally don't like. The alcohol could be integrated better, but for a foursquare it’s such OK This is super hard… i think this is from Monymusk ca.60% approx. 15 Years”

“Vielen Dank für die Zugabe im RumX-Kalender an Jarek👍🏻! Auf Foursquare wäre ich hier nie gekommen! Insgesamt überwiegt die alkoholische Schärfe, es sind jedoch schöne Ansätze von Schokolade und Mokka wahrnehmbar!”

“Un jeune Foursquare assez direct, qui dévoile des notes de noix de coco, de chocolat, de caramel et des épices douces avec une touche subtile de bois. Le profil olfactif typique de Foursquare est ici terriblement sommaire, simpliste et même un peu agressif avec l’alcool, dont on ressent les effluves. En bouche, l’attaque est encore plus alcoolique. La piqûre de l’alcool est assez désagréable et empêche d’apprécier les quelques arômes (déjà peu nombreux) que présente ce rhum. On peut ressentir une légère influence du fût de Cognac, mais cela ne va pas plus loin avec le caramel, le chocolat, le bois jeune, quelques fruits secs et les épices. La finale est tout aussi peu mémorable, assez courte avec ces notes caramélisées et épicées, sans grand spectacle. Un rhum malheureusement très instable et qui ne convient ni à un palais averti, ni aux néophytes.”
