Mir persönlich zu viel Holz und etwas unausbalanciert.

Foursquare has done it again. A nice intense and complex rum for those who like good rum. Wow. The nose is wonderful once rested for 15-20 minuttes. Then you're almost overwhelmed by a nice bouquet of fruit and spices. In the back i find coconut and some charred wood. The palate doesn't disappoint considering the wonderful nose. Natural sweet, lightly dry. Intense, balanced and complex all in one go..... Then you have fruit and spices followed by caramel and charred wood. The finish is very long and has plum and vanilla finishing with charred wood. Retasting today confirms it's a winner.

Top notch Foursquare. Alcohol could be a little bit better integrated, however.

Der beste Foursquare, den ich als Foursquare-Skeptiker je getrunken habe. Sehr gefällig, vor allem am Gaumen, ohne diese für mich aufdringlich wirkende typische Foursquare-Charakteristik zu sehr hervorzukehren. Für mich daher auch Sieger im Direktvergleich mit dem hier oft auf Augenhöhe bewerteten Principia. Hat mich sehr gefreut, die Bekanntschaft dieses tollen Rums gemacht zu haben. 👍

Sehr gute Sache, aber nicht überragend.

Ja er ist gut! Nein er wird dem Hype nicht gerecht. Er ist ausbalancierter im Geschmack und Abgang durch die 11 Jahre Cognac fasst Lagerung. Mehr aber auch nicht. Lieber Kauf ich mir zwei Flaschen der ESC Reihe. Die machen genauso viel Spaß.

Un bon Foursquare comme on les aime. La finale est d'une superbe gourmandise. Beaucoup de plaisir mais le boisé et les epices permettent de ne pas tomber dans l'écoeurant. En revanche l'alcool pourrait être mieux intégré.

Foursquare, eine Destillerie, die ich bisher einfach nur ok fand und das im Vergleich zu anderen Brennereien aus gutem Grund. Das kann ich von diesem hier nicht behaupten. DDL lässt schön grüßen! Hier kommt er meiner Lieblingsdestillerie schon gefährlich nahe. Trockenfrüchte, Orangenschale, Klebstoff, Politur, süße Noten wie Karamell und schön eingebundenes Holz. All das finde ich auch oft bei DDL wieder, hier allerdings lang nicht so ausgeprägt und komplex. Im Gaumen unglaublich süffig, süß, intensiv, mit angenehmen Tanninen und einer leichten Bitterkeit. Wirklich schöner Rum!
