Foursquare Port Cask Finish Rum Review

In Lifestyle, The Dapper Bar by Neil Brotherston

We’re often slightly dubious when we’re told that we are being sent a “limited edition” drink – sometimes this can just be a marketing ploy to move on supplies of a previous batch, that is no longer made and needs shifting.
