I think most people who have tried it would say that the Foursquare is brilliant! It doesn't ever need to be mixed. How much to pay though, that is a tough one! I hope you can get hold of a bottle soon!

I went on line and found it at HighTimeWines and its 18.00 for a 1.75 bottle and about the same in shipping so I suppose it isn't that bad of a price. Hell I spent more than that on other Rums that I didn't care for. But its the fun of it that I like.

I will update as soon as I get it for this weekend.....I am ordering it as we speak.

It doesn't seem to be the 'age' necessarily and maybe I just like sweet/'spiced' rums, but some taste like whiskey. I thought Flor de Cana 4yr tasted a lot like whiskey, but not Zaya 12yr(good rum). FdC is good, that's just not what I like about rum.

Doorly's XO
Cruzan Diamond
I tried Brugal Ron Anejo and now Rhum Barbancourt tonite. They are both good. I like the barbancourt initial flavor better than the bitey finish, but it is good.
I think that I like the Brugal a bit more, but they both could use some caramel and a vanilla bean!
(I know most would say 'a splash of coke').
