Foursquare Rum 2005, Liquid Treasures

  • Let’s see if this one’s as potstilly as others. What, don’t you like that new barbarism? Colour: deep gold. Nose: no, no full pot-still character here, rather a rounded, gently charred/caramelly profile, with some toffee and roasted peanuts and pecans. With water: some earth coming through, as well as a little sawdust.


    Mouth (neat): tense, orange-y, cake-y, caramelly. Notes of burnt sugar. With water: the oranges win it. A little caramel, a little cane syrup. Finish: medium, toasted, gentle.


    Comments: very good but not quite my preferred style of Foursquare. That’s the thing with some rum distilleries, they produce various styles and the name alone doesn’t always mean much. In other word, they’re not Lagavulin.
