This baby first matured on location for 8 years in ex-bourbon barrels, then for 5 years in Bonnie Scotland, in some ex-malt cask. Colour: gold. Nose: if I wanted to provoke people I would say it's close to the Bacardi, only a thousand times nicer. But that feeling may come from the very high strength. Nougat and popcorn, that praline, some natural vanilla, honeys, maple syrup… With water: some subtle herbal teas, pistachios, sesame oil… I have the impression that the proportion of ex-column rum in this self-blended Foursquare is higher than usual. Mouth (neat): Bacardi + lemon, only ten thousand times better. A very nice citric side, some vanilla... With water: easy, on coconut and vanilla, with some orange cordial in the background. Not a heavier Foursquare indeed. Finish: medium, soft, on more vanilla, coconut water and banana. Citrus in the aftertaste, which just always works. Quite some pepper too. Comments: some lighter FS and another world, already.
