Schöner, runder Foursquare mit deutlicher Süsse von Karamell und Vanille, die aber nie ins „Klebrige“ abkippt. Erkennbare Würze und dezenter Alkohol bieten dem einen stimmigen Gegenpol. Klassisches Profil mit hoher Süffigkeit, aber ohne grosse Komplexität. Trotzdem eine gelungene Abfüllung.

Au nez, c’est boisé (13 ans de vieillissement, ça se sent), avec de belles épices poivrées et de muscade fraichement râpée. On a également quelque chose de plus lourd, de résineux (colle, vernis). Mais on est quand même chez Foursquare, donc on retrouve la noix de coco, du chocolat, de la banane et de la vanille. C’est plutôt bien attractif et concentré comme nez, mais c’est un peu connu et reconnu chez Foursquare. En bouche, c’est très gourmand, c’est épicé, mais pas trop. Beaucoup de douceur avec les fruits secs, le chocolat noir et le tabac. Les fruits sont également de la partie : p

Another bottle I received today and for the price a very good rum. I just retasted this one today and wow it's good. I love when the lips are tingling and mouth and throat is warm when sipping. I will need to get a backup bottle for myself and I will add it to my tastings as a joker.

Wie bei FS meistens- gut und nett, tut nicht weh, aber irgendwie fehlt etwas…

Ik weet niet of de 91 punten helemaal correct zijn, maar ik schat hem net ietsje hoger in dan de ECS 2008 (90 punten) die ik wat bitterder vind dan deze. Misschien moet ik de 2008 nog er nog eens bij nemen om van daaruit opnieuw te vergelijken…

I could suggest it is nice classic Foursquare rum matured in ex bourbon barrels. Nothing special here, just round, classic expression with high ABV. Nice sipper, but there are lots of alternatives to this…

Typical FS nose: the glueish nose/grain whisky. Pretty good but also as expected so also a bit boring because FS is standard good/great. Pretty active cask.
