Review #1948 | Rum Review #111

Distiller: Foursquare

Bottler: Rolling Fork

Brand: Rolling Fork

Selection: Seelbachs

ABV: 60.5% ABV

Age: 12 Years


Nose: Rich and buttery on the nose, this rum is most reminiscent of praline and roasted nuts from the fair, brown sugar and toffee. Sweet, inviting, complex.

Taste: Rich on the palate and loaded with character. Sweet brown sugar, just the lightest quality of funk. Brown butter, light oak, faint pepper and rich cream. Proof is on the mild side, drinking well below it’s proof.

Finish: Long finish with lots of integration showcasing oak, brown sugar, toffee candies and a light tobacco character.

Overall: Foursquare remains a top tier rum producer for many reasons, and their consistency is always notable, if not applaudable. This barrel is no different – a rich dessert experience for all to enjoy – and a great selection by Seelbachs.

Thanks for reading!
