If you know the Foursquare Port Cask Finish, then this one is similar but more subtle in general. A nice complex rum with natural sweetness to it.

incredibly fruity, perfectly balanced, hints of coconut, nuts, and woods. No wonder Foursquare is a top notch distillery with awesome and price-worthy products. Clearly it's a must have for any rum lover.

It’s a rum that builds. At first taste the relatively low ABV was a bit uninspiring but the longer I took with it the more I enjoyed it. The nose is delicate but refined, with a sweet vanilla, cooking spices and a cut of green apple. On the mouth it is surprisingly savoury, with green olives and brine mixed with chocolate and warm spices. The finish is soft and medium length with milk chocolate and nuts in front of a backbone of warming spice. It’s a rum which needs time to be appreciated but brings a lot of interesting notes to the party. More refined than the bourbon cask ECS bottlings and a good option if willing to take some time

Solidní jemnější rum z produkce Foursquare, kterým prostupuje vanilka se dřevem.
