Review: Foursquare 2009 – Mark XVII

Last time when I managed to review an Exceptional Cask Selection release from Foursquare was over one year ago. The reason for that is it’s increasingly lack of availability as everyone is trying to get one to either enjoy, collect or simply re-sell in order to make a quick buck – and who can blame … More Review: Foursquare 2009 – Mark XVII

Review: The Real McCoy 12 Year Old Limited Edition Madeira Cask

I kept postponing this as I decided I need a clear head and a good night’s sleep before I dive into these two, which never happens, so I might as well get on with it. The two new rums from Richard Seale’s Foursquare Distillery in Barbados showed on the UK market “just now”, a month … More Review: Foursquare Nobiliary vs Foursquare Plenipotenziario
