Review #1166 | Rum Review #71 – XXX:One Foursquare 13yr r/Rum x Fine Drams 2005

The Schtick: This is an independent bottling of rum distilled at Foursquare in Barbados and bottled by Fine Drams after selection by the r/Rum community. It is bottled at cask strength with no coloring or filtering. I’m proud to have sat on the panel for this selection, but as a result, this review will not carry a rating. 

Distiller: Foursquare

Bottler: Fine Drams

Selection: r/Rum

ABV: 63% ABV

Age: 13 Years

Nose: Honey, apples, rich brown sugar. Maple, toffee, strong tannic structure. Faint funk, mild rubber influence.

Taste: Thick and rich, some heat but not punishing. Definitely on the hotter side though. Rich toffee, fudge, caramel, light funk. Bananas, faint mango, some guava and cherry. Vanilla bean, rich.

Finish: Long, rich and growing a hair funkier. Good oak structure. Coffee, toffee, caramel and some nutmeg. More bourbon-y here, less fruity and funky.

Overall: Really delicious dram and I’m still very glad I pushed hard for this to be the selection

Thanks for reading!
