Foursquare // Barbados
Released in June 2020, Foursquare 2008 Single Blended Rum is the 13th installment of the distillery's Exceptional Cask Selections series and is part of a line of vintage releases by the distillery. It's aged for 12 years in first, second and third fill bourbon barrels and is bottled at 60 percent ABV. It's a single blended rum that contains pot and Coffey distilled molasses rums. The 2008 hit the market in June 2020 for a limited time and in limited quantities.
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".
"Look for intense aromas of prunes, dried cherries, maple syrup and burnt sugar with more subtle notes of roasted banana. This rum is buttery on the palate, with an interesting complexity and rich fruit flavor of dark berries, vanilla, praline, cinnamon spice and black pepper. There's quite a long fade, with savory qualities coming through. Savor it a while and notice how the flavor evolves over time."
