Foursquare 12yo 2007 Bottling Note

A 2007 vintage rum from Foursquare distillery in Barbados, which marries together a blend of pot and column still rums. The liquid was aged in Barbados in bourbon casks for 12 years, and bottled at a rather punchy cask strength of 59% ABV for the Exceptional Cask Selection.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Classic notes of creamy vanilla and chocolate, fragrant spices, dried fruits and a hint of pepper, alongside toasted oak and fresh apricot.

Foursquare 12 Year Old 2007 - Exceptional Cask Selection Reviews

Wow- Deep, complex and needs time to breathe.

Just incredible what these guys have been able to do with their distillery, from the sherry & bourbon finishes we are seeing, to the obscure port and zinfandel casks they have stunned us with in the past- youve got to love their attempt at innovation.

I wasnt expecting much from this at all, honestly. From the initial nosing when I first got it, it has got a bit of a "weird" solventy-Airfix glue quality to it, of which I am not a fan- reminding me of cheapo jack D... however, what you get underneath that is just unreal.

Nose- pre water: Heavy solvent punch (Which Ive a feeling is the bourbon cask), dark chocolate, Hay, Barrel char, very woody-oak (sounds silly, but it smells like my face is inside a cask- amazing), toasted vanilla, campfire smoke, spice, sweet sherry its associated cask tint, naturally sweet (surprisingly sweet), light fruitiness, dark fruits on the undertone, stone fruit, light- Not your usual Dark heavy mollases note youd usually associate with Mollasses-style rum. white wine, pepper, corn, candy floss, thick blanket of sweetness, toffee, honey, heather, burger sauce (!? part of the solventy-scent), musty

With water: Lifted and opened up incredibly, Banana, heavy caramel, toffee, massive natural vanilla, huge body, tropical fruits, spices, ginger, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, thick and full.

Taste:
Without water: Huge punch of spices, Peppery, toasted oakiness (but not tannin-bitter), bourbon sweet, huge vanilla, smoke, fruity, woody-hit, can really taste the barrells, molasses (but not the dark-heavy molasses we've come to expect), spicy! complex, almond, nutty, orange zest on the tail.

With water: BIG! Opened up, sweet, spicy, black pepper, Sweet wood/oakiness- wow, Smokey, (camp woodfire smoke), corn, tobacco, bourbon, pine, resins and tannins, apricot, honey, heather, punchy, dark fruits, grapes, lingering, raisin, damsons, has mass, can really get the orange on the back end/back of the pallette, banana, nuts, hazel and almond, and just goes on and on, as could I.

Finish: Long, heavy spice in the cheeks and roof of mouth, with a mouth-watering sweetness on the tongue and mid-pallette into mellow caramel and soft fruits, sight bitter tannins, back to a lingering oaky vanilla sweetness.

Finish is still here after 10-15 minutes- Do yourself a favour and give this a try. Only thing preventing this being a 5 Is the solvent-like (burger sauce!? I have no idea why, musty, mustardy type-) scent that keeps popping its head up.

Lovely sipping rum - needs some ice

A beautiful rum, with the complex taste of whisky.

This rum is a delicious sipping rum. At cask strength I found a couple of ice cubes reduces the burn and make more flavours available to the palate. It has a flavour of oak, burnt orange and a vanilla aftertaste. Without ice, the oak flavour is dominant - which is ameliorated with ice. There's no added sugar to this one, so it is not a sickly sweet rum.

I'm thinking this might actually be a good rum to use for an old fashioned - the rind and bitters would emphasise the fruit taste and the soda would reduce the burn.



I'm thinking it might actually
