New Rum Review: Foursquare Port Cask Finish

November 14, 2015

Greetings, rum chums!

Today we’re back with another gem of a rum from Barbados, the Port Cask Finish from Foursquare Rum Distillery. We’ve seen a lot of rums finished in various fortified wine barrels (mostly Sherry) and my most common complaint is that the wine ends up overpowering the rum. Look, I like Sherry and Port as much as the next guy, but if I want to taste Sherry, I’ll pour a glass of it.

Fortunately, such us not the case with Richard Seale’s port-finished release. As you can see by the fill level of the bottle below, I’ve spent some time with this one before writing about it. Read the review here and see why this rum is so special.

        I’m sure it is as a foursquare. If not I’m sure one of the other dozen I ordered are. #rumorderingaddiction

    Got my bottles today. I ordered two to try. I noticed the cork leaked even though wax covered. There was loss from both bottles in shipping. All other bottles had zero loss. one leaked in the amount of the neck of the bottle on the bottle and foam the bottle was shipped in so mabye 30-40ML. The other had several dried beads that leaked down the neck but the neck was still high maybe 5ML loss. Very surprised given the wax covering. Both bottles because squat were firmly held in the foam shipper. The sloshing of alcohol probably exacerbated this. I opened the one that was lower as when held upside down there was some beading of rum droplets from under the wax. Some loss in shipping is likely at times though so no real biggie, grab it at the store if you are one of the few lucky to have it around. So far its great from the first glass I’m enjoying now I love the nose on this!

    I revisited this rum again today. I noticed the top of the bottle on the threading was chipped. A “large” amount of the glass on one side was missing as it was chipped off the top. This no doubt led to the leak. I inspected the bottle and found no glass floating at the bottom. I can only assume the other bottle has the same issue.
