Damn! That's probably cheaper than it is at the distillery in Barbados!

That’s a good one to start on in my opinion!

I did some research plus spoke with the staff at the store and consensus seems to be this is a great entry rum for the bourbon drinker

I’m a big fan of Foursquare, as are many other SB members that are into good rum. Unfortunately I can’t get it in my area, and have to buy it when I’m traveling.

You shouldn't be disappointed.  FS is good albeit follows the lighter Bajan rum style.

Bajan or not, I wouldn't use the term "light" for any of their expressions. ;)

Grabbed a FourSquare Sagacity today, I've been hearing great things about this one.

Compared to other pot still expressions, I would. My two cents...

Liquor stores FINALLY back open with social distancing.  Grabbed a handle of MG Eclipse and Pussers Original.

Picked up a modern J. Wray to compare against the dusty version I purchased earlier in the week. I doubt it'll be much of a competition.

Don’t know that I have seen this bottling in Georgia before.

It's in Texas. A decent solution for cocktails requiring a non-dark Jamaican rum in the US. For dark I use Coruba.

 

Probably won't unseat Smith And Cross though for the same role.

 

The dusty CJ Wray white rum you're probably also familiar with, and from foggy memory had more of a citrus peel thing going on in its estery zone. Worth buying cheap if you see it on a rando bottom shelf, but not worth paying a premium for.

Posted here due to the lack of a "What Rum Did You Pass On Today" thread. At least it brightened my day, literally.

I have been seeing this and thought, you have to diversify, but I’m out on this, not my type......  I do like the BR Single barrel though.

That’s scary looking stuff, I’d stay away too.

Came across a couple of bottles of Foursquare 2005, and grabbed them both.  Those are extinct around here...

Fourteen years and straight bourbon maturation… but the Foursquare pricing is quickly creeping into Independently-bottled territory…

Creeping? They seem to be going that direction at full throttle to me! Although it is hard to know where the bulk of the increase is. In Georgia at least a part of it could be the distributor (and often is).

Yes-- I was surprised to see the $115.00 price tag, which puts it into some very competitive territory. Given that I got a screaming deal on Sagacity at $29.99-- I acquiesced on this one.

Odd bunch here-- a "whisky cask" matured (22 months) version of the Casimir Clairin and a molasses-based rum from Guadeloupe with a confusing hybrid maturation history. Plus, some damn cool Mexican Corn Liqueur on the non-rum front.

That's a cool Mexican Corn Liqueur bottle.

I'd be interested to read the tasting notes on that Licor de Elote.

Elote is the term for what we'd call corn on the cob.  I wonder if it was made from fresh, rather than dried corn.

Paul, your “what we’d call corn...” words reminded me of the old Mazola margarine commercial.  14 yr old Smokinjoe had one big time crush on the “maize” girl...😉. Which begs the question, here in 2020 was I “bad” or “good” for liking that commercial and presentation?   🤪
