Barbados Foursquare 2010 Rum, Liquid Treasures

  • I suppose this is a single blend Foursquare but not sure (batch + continuous). Colour: brownish amber. Nose: I don't know if that's the Sauternes but this one seems to be rather richer and fatter, and more jammy than others. It seems that the 'moderately heavy' style of FS does let the sweet wine sing pretty loud, in this case rather with mirabelle jam and quinces. Raisin rolls too. What's funnier yet is that the combination could let you believe this is cane juice-led agricole from Martinique. But then again, I'm no expert, I'm easily misled. With water: more agricoleness, with some café latte too. But really, you would have said Martinique and would have replied 'spot on'. Mouth (neat): indeed, the combo seems to have worked very well, except that what was possibly newish French oak seems to have made this pretty spicy and bitter. A little varnishy too. Let's see what water does to it… With water: no, cancel that, water makes it much more playful, sweeter, a tad thinner too (column). Jelly baby vodka, orange liqueur… Finish: medium, with more tea again, possibly from the Sauternes wood. Comments: a funny one that keeps changing. But does good rum need wine? To be discussed…
