“First impression: Oh yes!!! After the failure with the Raconteur, which I personally didn't like that much, only the Absolutio. The combination of bourbon and port barrel works really well in my opinion. The alcohol is perfectly integrated. Nice and soft and velvety to drink, beautiful dark color and pretty curtains in the glass. At 179€, it's also cheaper than its predecessor. From what I remember of the Velier Foursquare Crosstasting, it stands out from the others and would be at the top of my list. I think this will be my new favorite Foursquare.”

“Today there are two Foursquare: 1. covenant: This one tastes like it looks. Lots of dark fruit, somewhat leathery and dry on the palate. The cask influence is very strong, almost too strong. You have to know what you're getting into, but if you like it, you won't be disappointed. The alcohol is well integrated. Delicious Foursquare that I could imagine really enjoying from time to time! 2nd Absolutio: Awesome piece! There are no surprises on the nose or palate in terms of aromas. Mouth-filling, starts silky and pleasantly oily towards the finish. Pleasantly (dry) woody and chocolaty-fruity, great balance. The finish is very long and offers an interplay between dried fruit wrapped in chocolate and wood. I particularly like rums with these long, great finishes and that's what makes this rum for me! Wonderful, now it's "Hunters must hunt" Many thanks to Schnubbii!”

“The color in the glass is already very impressive! Deep mahogany with red-brown reflections. The nose is full of juicy dark raisins, fully ripe banana and spice. The port cask is also easily recognizable (heavy sweet port). Also reminds me of maraschino cherries. The port cask has rounded off the rum very well and, in my opinion, fits in very well with the Foursquare profile. On the palate, the rum is consistent with the nose. The medium to long finish brings no surprises, everything is very balanced, round and pleasing. I'm not quite sure how to rate this rum. The overall impression is very good in any case. However, the port influence seems quite dominant to me. It's as if Foursquare had been mixed with port (wet cask?). Compared to other FS I know, it is very expressive, intense and round.”
