The nose is very bourbon-heavy, small wonder - the rum matured 5 years in a bourbon barrel. From the other 5 years in the whiskey barrel is not much to feel - was obviously not an Islay whiskey.On the palate very similar. A certain intensity is there due to the approx. 61% alcohol but unfortunately not many flavors are transported besides bourbon, vanilla and roasted notes.Overall ok but for Foursquare pale, alcoholic and even less representative than No 17 (probably because of the storage in the whiskey barrel, which rarely suits me).Practically without significant difference to Barbados No. 17.One more note on the storage in the whiskey barrel: What prevents the bottler to disclose in what kind of barrel the rum was stored for the last 5 years? Please complete transparency!

Got this sample for free from RumX. It’s a mix of column and pot still distilled rum that’s aged for 11 years, first for 5 years tropical and then 6 years continental. It has spent 5 years in an ex-bourbon barrel and 5 years in an ex-whisky barrel. Finally it was bottled in 259 bottles at 61,1%. Overall an OK rum, but with too strong alcoholic taste, that’s not near Foursquare’s own bottlings.

Sehr alkoholisch, bisschen Holz, leichte Vanille.

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 für mich minimal besser ab als der parallel verkostete No 17
