I have a student from Zacapas, Guatemala. Currently have a bottle of XO and negra. Unbelievably good stuff.

Just cracked redoubtable.

Surprisingly little nose, really good punch to the face palate and oily mouth feel.

I'd say a little less flavorful than recent ECS/store pick four squares but still great as always. Buy if you're a foursquare junkie at 125. If you aren't, probably more enjoyable bourbons/scotch at that range for you imo

Looks like Houston bourbon society has a private foursquare release on the way. 12 year, all bourbon

Finishing this off tonight.


I'm getting a lot of banana in the nose. Really tasty.

Boo that. Keep them ignorant and keep the prices reasonable.

Whatever happened to the HBS Foursquare rum pick?

Agreed, though there appears to be enough bourbon makers in the game now that is keeping the prices reasonable, and should start bringing them lower in the near future as supply will start to catch up. It will be a damn shame if my favorite $30-$50 bottles are $75-$100 in another two years.

Not high-end, but anyone tried this Texas Rum? Would love to hear any feedback. They're opening a tasting room about 1/4 mile from Deep Eddy.

They also make a fine Gin called "Djinne." Very botanical.

The greatest argument ever made against democracy is a 5 minute conversation with the average voter.

I'm gonna let you try out that young 23$ rum and report back.

I had one of the rums several years ago, and I was not a fan. Maybe they're better now?

I was in the airport in Mexico a couple of weeks ago and thought about buying some Havana Club. After standing there for a couple of minutes I just couldn't do it. I don't let politics dictate many things when it comes to consumer items but given what went down in Cuba during the revolution including the seizing of assets like rum distilleries from private ownership, I just didn't think it was worth it. There's plenty of good rum available in the US without the same history. Feel free to read up on what happened with Bacardi, who is still dealing with the aftermath and legal disputes with Cuba over something that was stolen from them.

I'm fully aware of the amount of Chinese made goods in my house, and like I said I don't generally let politics inform my purchases, but I'd prefer not kick back and relax with a glass of Cuban rum.

I told my wife about my dilemma when we were in the airport and she told me point blank if that rum made it into the house she'd pour it down the drain, glad I didn't waste the money.

I've had the dark - it was very heavy on the molasses.

Decided to venture into rum for the first time. Picked out a few bottles that seemed highly regarded here.

Foursquare Detente is excellent. I enjoy this as much as any bourbon or scotch I've ever had.

Ron Zacapa 23 was also incredibly enjoyable. I plan on taking this with me to share with my family at the beach.

Papas Pilar was good but a little too sweet. My wife loved it though and it is the first time she's enjoyed anything on the rocks.

Kirk and Sweeney 18 was my biggest disappointment of the 4. For whatever reason I just didn't enjoy the flavor profile. I enjoyed the vanilla finish but I have tried two pours and just haven't been able to enjoy it yet.

Huge rum novice still but I'm excited to explore some others that y'all have mentioned.

Detente is a really solid foursquare to start with

Check out any of the 200x you see, great rum but not secondary finished like the detente you tried
