Bekommt bei mir einen subjektiven Sympathiepunkt dazu, weil das hochprozentige Foursquare-Profil zum damaligen Zeitpunkt durchaus etwas neues darstellte, was Begeisterung hervorgerufen hat. Aber auch ungeachtet dessen ein exzellenter Vertreter des typischen Foursquare-Profils.

Ein geiler Rum! Komplex, sehr gut trinkbar. PLV Top! Edit 03/2022: Mittlerweile schon Sammlerpreise. Der Körper ist schlanker als alle bisher verkosteten FSs. Sehr elegant. Neben dem Plenipotenziario mein Lieblings-FS.

Un classique, efficace sans être trop complexe

After a while, this rum became really interesting. Amazing nose. Nice palate!

The nose is very light, especially compared to some of the more recent ECS releases, with vanilla, honey and marzipan - really rather refined but subtle. On the mouth the full proof base comes through, slightly more one dimensional and not quite as well integrated as the best Foursquare’s, with a thick dark chocolate element and some barrel influence. The finish is medium long with some warming spice, and a real creamy quality. It’s a solid rum (aren’t all Foursquare’s?) but drinking it today highlights the quality of Richard’s more recent releases

This one is lighter and most delicate of the 2004, 2005 and 2007 Exceptional casks. A very nice rum from the nose through the palate right onto the finish. A lot of orange throughout. A slightly dry rum slightly sweeter than the other two. Really smooth and complex bottle that is already hard to find.

L'un de mes premiers rums et mon premier Foursquare à l'époque. Sans lui peut-être que je ne serais pas autant tombé dedans. À l'époque le prix était incroyable et accessible pour le jeune étudiant que j'étais. C'est une préoccupation que j'ai moins aujourd'hui mais pour ceux qui arrivent dans le monde du rum c'est important d'avoir accès à d'excellents rums à un prix raisonnable.

Pas le FS de l'année mais il remplit très bien son job.. Un classique des barbades avec son tapis d'épices en fin de bouche.. Alcool bien intégré..
