Review #1370 | Rum Review #88

Distiller: Foursquare

Bottler: Real McCoy

Brand: Real McCoy

Selection: N/A

ABV: 46% ABV

Age: 12 Years

Nose: Sweet, complex. Honey, rosewater, lightly musty. Caramel, tobacco, light pepper.

Taste: Nice body, good mouth feel. No heat. Sweet caramel.

Finish: Long, rich and complex. Great molasses, brown sugar integration with some fruit like blackberry and currant. Brown sugar and tobacco end things for a clean finish.

Overall: I like this, it’s not built on the most bonkers rum base but it has everything I like, I’d drink a lot of this.

Thanks for reading!
