Riecht echt intensiv und lecker, allerdings schon etwas nach Lösungsmittel, was aber nach einer gewissen Zeit verfliegt. Pur ist dieser Rum schwer und kräftig, mit etwas Wasser absolut mild. Geht runter wie Öl. Leider bekomme ich hier nicht so viel Schokolade, dafür viel Frucht und Gewürze. Sehr runder, leckerer und komplexer Rum, da kann man nicht viel meckern :-)

Foursquare in gewohnter Qualität und mit gewohntem Geschmacksprofil. Und das (noch) zum Kampfpreis. In der Nase etwas schwächer und weniger komplex als seine Brüder mit Bourbon-Finish. Im Mund richtig geil. So soll Rum schmecken. OK, dann ist da noch der 96er Diamond...

It’s a blend of pot and column distilled rum aged for 12 years in ex-Bourbon barrels. Overall it’s a really great, complex, intense and well balanced rum that’s dry and sweet at the same time.

Schön rund. Süß, vanillig, Kokos, würzig, holzig, Uhu und Lösungsmittel. Der Alkohol ist top eingebunden. Lecker.

This rum is drier than the 2004, 2005 and 2007 and by far the best one. Foursquare definitely delivers this time. A wonderful complex nose that you just want to return to over and over again. The palate is heavy, well balanced and dry with a touch of oak. The finish is long and a bit of smoke as well as fruits.

Foursquare s’impose à mes yeux comme à ceux des amateurs comme une des meilleurs marques de rhum au monde. Au nez c’est impressionnant la puissance aromatique. Je l’aurais réduit un plus, les 60% sont très violents mais c’est indéniable c’est un grand rhum et une régalade.

Absolute FS Rakete. Viel Karamell, Vanille und Holz, aber auch dezente Frucht in Form von Kokosnuss. Alkohol nicht perfekt eingebunden, sonst wäre er der perfekte Barbare.

Un nez magnifique mais une bouche un peu simple avec une finale courte. C'est très gourmand et assez gras, j'aime beaucoup mais il lui manque quelque chose pour en faire un excellent Foursquare. Pour le prix ça reste un très bon rum facile à trouver.

gefällt mir an der Nase besser als am Gaumen, wo sich der nicht so gut eingebundene Alkohol doch etwas negativ bemerkbar macht. Sonst hätte es noch ein paar Punkte mehr gegeben…
