This is a super fruity rum and luckily I have a bottle plus a backup one just in case. The nose is mild and fruity with vanilla and some barrel. In the back i pick up some varnish. The palate is complex, well balanced and slightly dry. Again fruity with vanilla and smoky oak. The fisish is long, lightly dry and has raisin and roasted oak. The day after the raisin and roasted oak is even stronger in the glass.

gut aber durch den geringen ABV wurde viel Geschmack zerstört ....Ausgabepreis war der richtige Preis für so ein runter reduzierten Rum....schade drum.

Heavy on the oak and the red (forest fruits). The Zinfandel influence, which is a bold oaky red wine, is very present...but it works. Winterly spices. Sweet but not too sweet. I'm not that insulted by the "low" percentage of 43%, just start with this and everything will be alright. Different than modern Foursquare too...less glueish.

Revisiting this Foursquare classic. It is undoubtably very good rum but falls a little flat for me compared to the more recent ECS releases, it feels underweight at 43% ABV and the mouth feel muted as a result. Well balanced, vanilla and red fruit notes on the mouth but a bit light. Smooth short finish with hint of sweetness and tropical fruit. It’s good but in the new world of full strength rums it’s one you buy as it’s FS rather than on quality alone in my view

Fruchtig in der Nase, Alkohol gleichzeitig bissig und schwach, insgesamt irgendwie verdünnt.

Bouteille à environ 65e c’est assez cher mais je l’apprécie  vraiment pas mal, à regoûter plus tard, un peu déçu par le finish qui ne marque pas vraiment, il est assez équilibré et facile à boire on passe un bon moment sans vraiment se prendre la tête ni être exceptionnel
