Review #1115 | Rum Review #65

Distiller: Foursquare

Bottler: Foursquare

Brand: Foursquare


ABV: 40% ABV

Age: 3 Years

Nose: Sugar, cinnamon, ethanol. Confectioners sugar and light maple candies.

Taste: Super thin. No heat. Light vanilla and confectioners sugar. Not much going on here at all. Some maple candies.

Finish: Short, mild, sweet honey and molasses. Faint spice.

Overall: This is incredibly mild as far as spirits go. There isnt a ton going on here. This seems like its best in a cocktail paired with another bolder rum, to be honest. I dont hate it, but its a bit like Ambien in a bottle.

Thanks for reading!
