Die Nase ist sehr Bourbon-lastig, klein Wunder - der Rum reifte ausschließlich im Bourbonfass. Nach einer Weile kommen leichte Noten von Weißwein dazu. Am Gaumen sehr ähnlich. Eine gewisse Intensität ist aufgrund der knapp 60% Alkohol da aber leider werden neben Bourbon, Vanille und Röstnoten nicht viele Aromen transportiert. Insgesamt gut aber für Foursquare blass, alkoholisch und nicht sehr repräsentativ. Praktisch ohne nennenswerten Unterschied zum Barbados No. 18.

Got a sample of this Foursquare rum for free from RumX. It’s a mix of column and pot still distilled rum aged for 11 years in an ex-bourbon cask, 5 years in the tropics and 6 years continentally whereafter it’s bottled in 264 bottles at 59,3%. Overall an interesting and elegant Foursquare rum that’s a little different from their own bottlings, maybe because of the continental aging.

Nach dem Plenipotenzario aus dem Adventskalender dachte ich mir noch: Ha, Foursquare kann ja doch gut schmecken. Der hier bestärkt mich wieder in meinen alten Vorurteilen und bietet wieder das gewohnt langweilige Profil mit Kokos, Bourbon, Vanille und Alkohol. Da ist mir ein (guter) Bourbon lieber. Für FS-Liebhaber sicher interessant aber für mich eher nichtssagend. Schneidet etwas schwächer ab als der parallel verkostete No 18
