Foursquare 2005 12YO Rum
“Nose: Crunchy caramel at first with green fruit flavours and roasted bananas, hints of sharp red berries hiding behind. Rich lardy cake notes build – dark sugar, raisins and layers of buttery, enriched dough. Right at the back sit notes of barrel char and polished oak.
Palate: Butterscotch and toffee begin, with intensely fruity brown sugar notes and estery bananas following – ripe, overripe, roasted and foam banana sweets. Darker notes of liquorice and fruity dark chocolate lie underneath, with mint and thick, grainy caramelised sugar.
Finish: Toffee-filled chocolate and clove fade to leave butterscotch and bananas. “- The Whisky Exchange
“Foursquare 2005 was distilled, funnily enough back in 2005. It was bottled in January 2018 and has benefitted from 12 years of tropical ageing in Barbados. Aged in ex-bourbon barrels it is a blend of Pot and Column Distilled rum. No sugar, no additives and definitely no marketing bullshit. Limited to 12,000 bottles worldwide – 6,000 in Europe and 6,000 in the US.
In the glass we are presented with an orange/golden brown rum with a very slight haze to it (only lightly filtered perhaps?). The nose is familiar. Lovely spicy bourbon casks – white pepper, lime zest and a touch of ginger and nutmeg. This is balanced by a really beautiful sweetness – vanilla and milk chocolate. You would never guess this was such a potent rum at 59% ABV. Tropical fruits are revealed on further nosing with hints of coconut and banana. Notes of chewy sugary toffee.” – thefatrumpirate.com

This is one of those rums that could turn whiskey and bourbon drinkers over to rum.
