Foursquare 2004 Single Blended Rum
Foursquare // Barbados
Foursquare Rum Distillery is located in St. Phillip, Barbados. Owned and operated by fourth generation distiller, Richard Seale, this distillery produces some of the most distinguished brands in Barbados. Released in September 2015, this rum is part of a new line of vintage releases by the distillery. It was created by distilling molasses using a combination of pot and column stills. These rums were combined and aged for eleven years using ex-bourbon casks.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
"The aroma of the rum delivers notes of alcohol and dark vanilla, fresh-cut apples, pears, charred oak, and toasted nuts. The first sip of the rum delivers a punch of ethanol in a swirl of vanilla, and oak tannins. This conditions the tongue of the imbiber to enjoy the complexity of the rum. Additional sips reveal notes of cocoa, more fresh-cut apples with a hint of pears, leather, raisins, dried apricots, pepper and dark toffee. As the rum begins to fade notes of toasted walnuts and tobacco leaf linger and balance in a nice long finish. "
