BOW (90)

A blend of pot and column rums from Foursquare distillery, so a single blend, but the proportions are a well-guarded secret (unless you manage to tie-up one of the Seales and put Céline Dion on eleven on the stereo, ah, that’s an idea, I’ll try that next time!)

Colour: amber.

Nose: immediate and obvious, which is not always the case with Foursquare, especially when table wine casks have been used. Coffee, tobacco, a little leatherette (so leather for vegans), cane juice, burnt panettone, cigars, liquorice, and a handful of black olives. Like this rather a lot. With water: more damp earth and olives, humus, pipe tobacco…

Mouth (neat): really punchy, full, a little fresher than expected despite this relative heaviness. Truckloads of mint-flavoured liquorice, roasted almonds, Seville oranges, and a lot of proper gingerbread. With water: a drop of muscat (eh?) but the rest is all on tobacco and bitter oranges, plus the expected cinnamon and cloves.

Finish: very long, spicy, on more oranges and more tobacco.

Comments: a fairly estery Foursquare I would say, at the height of its talent. Really liked the liquorice.
