A fruity, funky rum from Foursquare distillery in Barbados, Nobiliary was matured for 14 years in ex-bourbon casks. The result is an intensely fruity character, with aromas of pineapple, stewed apples, fruit cake and vanilla on the nose. The palate offers notes of brown sugar, spiced sponge cake, rich fruit cake, oranges and liquorice.Tasting Notes (1)

Intensely fruity: dried pineapple and mango with sultanas and a touch of stewed green apple. Fruit cake richness (proper fruit cake, all dried fruit and dark sugars held together with the minimum of butter and flour) provides a backbone, sticky and dark with molasses and spice. Lighter wine gum notes develop along with a touch of furniture polish and old wood. After a few minutes in the glass, toffee and vanilla notes build and complement the fruit.
All the fruit from the nose hits at once along with a punch of old-school lardy-cake rich, dark sweetness. Brown sugar, nutmeg and spiced sponge cake batter are pushed aside by stewed apples and oranges. The spice builds again, gently prickly, backed up by gentle barrel-char and bittersweet liquorice pastilles. The fruit jellies from the nose make a brief appearance before disappearing again under a wave of dark, sticky and intense fruit.
Charred oak and sweet buttery spice fade slowly. Baked apples and raisins linger.
A bit of a beast that shows its alcoholic strength through its intensity rather than overt booziness. Packed with flavour and ready to be slowly contemplated – it rewards those who give it time to breathe in the glass with layers of complexity.

Not tried it yet, bought in advance of 31 Dec 2020, but previous Foursquare buys have been top notch.
Coming from a whisky background but now diversifying with Rums. I found this rum really nice, my first Foursquare rum, easy sipper, beautiful nose akin to a really dense rich Kentucky straight bourbon. But with the the benefits of Rum tropical fruits (Banana, Mango and sweet Cherry) notes and on the palate sweet, rich and long with some cask influence to be found. The ABV integrates well but I love cask strength anything so give it time in the glass, slow down everything and sit back and drift away with this bad boy rum. A steal at this price level...
Amazing! Intense, with sweeter and fruitier notes than most of Foursquares. Warning: surprisingly alcohol heat is much more pronounced than in 59% 2005 (I don't mind, but you might)
I was blown away when I tried this product during a twitter tasting just 5 days ago. I had to purchase this as an early birthday present to myself. You can sit and smell this rum for ages before taking pleasure in consuming afterwards. This rum is a winner.
