Un Foursquare tout particulièrement savoureux. Le nez offre un bouquet de fruits secs et tropicaux radieux (noix de coco, banane, ananas, raisins et raisins secs) qui oscillle avec les épices douces, le caramel et le chocolat. En bouche, le raisin et le porto viennent en premier, suivis d’une belle palette d’épices et de saveurs toastées, boisées et chaudes. La finale se veut longue et tout aussi élégante, chaleureuse et équilibrée que le reste. Un Foursquare maîtrisé et gourmand.

L’alcool est magnifiquement bien intégré, presque trop. À l’aveugle impossible de savoir que ce bonbon titre à 51%.

als ausgesprochener Portwein-Fan hätte ich mir einen stärkeren Portwein-Einfluss gewünscht. Es dominiert jedoch klar das Bourbon-Fass. Davon abgesehen aber gefälliger FS.

Interestingly this is the biggest miss to my palatte of all the Foursquare ECS I have tried. Still in any rationale sense a high quality and well composed rum but I have never quite got along with it. The nose is light but rather pleasant, nothing too complex but with wood, bourbon and some fruit at the edges. The mouth has an astringent edge, chocolate and spice with some barrel influence (not oak) and mace on the spice side. The finish is lightly spicy and dry, but lacks complexity and ends with a long wood and leather finish that lingers almost too long. It’s on the challenging side for my palate and try as I may not a rum I love

I had this several times, and always problems to get a good nosing. I really like the taste, however. One really gets the port influence, but it does not overpower the rum itself.

We also dived into this one yesterday and I ended up getting a bit tipsy because we had to double sample this one as well :-) The nose i is nice and fruity with vanilla and some barrel, in the back i get cinnamon, and coconut. The palate is also fruity and drizzled with spices. Then comes toasted oak and some burnt sugar. The finish is long and warm, slightly dry with vanilla and wonderful oak.

Revisited this one today with the last drops from a sample. It’s Foursquare, so as usual it’s very good. But not exciting somehow.

Un Foursquare très accessible, gourmand et rond. A réserver aux amateurs de rhums pâtissiers mais qui pourra décevoir les autres.

Leckere Nase nach Vanille, Zimt, Karamell, Schokolade und harmonische Früchte wie Banane, Rosine und Kokosnuss. Im Mund durch das etwas geringere ABV mild süßlich nach Karamell, trotzdem natürlich pfeffrig, getoastet und viele Gewürze. Frucht auch vorhanden, welche im Abgang von bitterer Schokolade und röstigem Karamell überlagert wird. Top Rum mit zurückhaltendem Portfinish, damals zu einem sehr guten Preis, heute aber schwer noch zu bekommen.

Ressemble beaucoup au Premise en plus sec. Alcool bien intégré, au nez et au goût on remarque le fut de porto. Excellent rhum de Foursquare.
