This is the highest dollar and oldest Foursquare I have tasted. At $150 for a Rum the expectations may be too much for this bottle. 16 years in the barrel may be perfection or just a bit too long. I will have a hard time being objectionable if this sucks at the price point so I am hoping the masters at Foursquare have delivered a masterpiece. Nose is not what you might expect here. There is some molasses sweetness, but it is much less pronounced and there is some oakiness from the long time in the barrel. First sip is quite frankly amazing. The sweetness is there, but it is perfectly rounded by the aging. The middle is almost sticky sweet on the tongue like a lingering sticky bun. At 112 proof you may worry that this will be hot, but it drinks at a significantly lower level. There is no real burn to speak of. The finish is soft and tails off with a molasses sunset. I have to say I was worried on this one at the price point and it may be a stretch for some on a Rum. However this is a truly fantastic bottle. I highly recommend it to any Rum fan or anyone that enjoys a premium finished whiskey. This is a bottle that is truly worth the splurge.
