Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Crunchy caramel at first, with a touch of toffee sauce. Then fruity flavours emerge: green and roasted bananas, with hints of sharp red berries hiding behind. Rich lardy cake notes build – dark sugar, raisins and layers of buttery, enriched dough. Right at the back sit notes of barrel char and polished oak.

    Palate: Butterscotch and toffee begin, with intensely fruity brown sugar notes and estery bananas following – ripe, overripe, roasted and foam banana sweets. Darker notes of liquorice and fruity dark chocolate lie underneath, with mint and thick, grainy caramelised sugar.

    Finish: Toffee-filled chocolate and clove fade to leave butterscotch and bananas.

    Comment: Rich and sweet, but never cloying. Complex and well-balanced with no spikiness, and surprisingly easy-drinking despite its high-strength.

  • Tasting notes from the producer

    Nose: Intense, with a classic Bajan profile of vanilla and dried fruits with a touch more smoke and spice due to the high ABV.

    Palate: Rich, deep notes of oak and spice at first, followed by some vanilla and dark chocolate and touches of baked banana. Warming. With water a little less oaky spice and more dried fruits. Entices you back to the glass for another sip.

    This is stellar stuff. The best rum I've ever had. Foursquare is leading the world of rum right now. An excellent reason to avoid adulterated Venezuelan and Guatemalan ****!
