Qui davvero tanti complimenti a foursquare! Intenso ed elegante in tutta la sua degustazione! Non fa percepire la sua gradazione e ha una bellissima armonia di sapori!

Un Foursquare très prenant au nez avec les notes habituelles de la Barbade : les fruits tropicaux, les fruits secs et les baies se mêlent au boisé vanillé, au chocolat, aux épices douces et une pointe de tabac et de vernis agrémentent ce profil très gourmand et expressif. La bouche est puissante et intense, huileuse et chaude, fidèle à l’esprit de Foursquare. L’alcool est présent, mais assez bien intégré. On retrouve la même rondeur et les arômes du nez et du palais sur une finale longue et délicate. Un Foursquare délicieux et équilibré, qui était à un très bon rapport qualité / prix à sa sortie, mais qui est aujourd’hui victime de la spéculation à un niveau au-delà du raisonnable.

Au nez, on a une sensation de chaleur, malgré l'aération les 62° ne passent pas totalement inaperçus. C'est gourmand avec du caramel, de la vanille et des fruits secs. Une pointe de chocolat au lait fait son apparition. Dès l'entrée en bouche on voit qu'on a affaire à un rum épais et huileux. On garde le caramel et les raisons secs. C'est tout et très agréable. La finale est sur les épices douces et le caramel. Un Foursquare sympa, gourmand et dont la texture est vraiment très agréable. Peut-être qu'une légère réduction l'aurait rendu fabuleux.

Yesterday's tasting went a bit overboard so I thin I'll only add the first 6 because we had more than one too many :-) This one, though expensive, is well worth the money.

Die Enttäuschung des Abends … finde die Noten aus dem Cognac Fass nicht überzeugend (va Rosine für mich), und finde sowohl das Holz der 2008 ECS als auch die Kokosnuss des ECS 2009 bessere Rums. Die Alkoholintegration ist aber der Wahnsinn, also wirklich perfekt!

Un foursquare maîtrisé qui se veut doux, une fraîcheur agréable combiné à des arômes caramélisés et un boisé équilibré.

Une claque ! Je comprend l'engouement pour ce foursquare ! Un nez fruité qui fait voyager. En bouche c'est une explosion de saveurs qui se complètent sans se faire de l'ombre et laissent apparaître ce qu'on aime de chez FS. C'est puissant et profond mais aussi fruité er doux. ❤❤ Une finale toasté et savoureuse. Un pur régal !!
