Foursquare // Barbados
This is the fifth release in the Exceptional Cask Selection. A blend of column and pot-still rums, it is aged in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-Madeira casks. It is bottled at 56% ABV and, as is the case with all Foursquare rums, has no added sugar or additives.
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".
Cask Typeex-bourbon and ex-Madeira
"The aroma of the rum is a complex swirl of fruit and spices with notes of baked cinnamon apples, ripe bananas, ginger, honey dipped pineapple, nutmeg and lemon zest. Lite notes of smokey oak and deeper char notes with a nip of alcohol punctuate the experience. On the palate the spicy apple and banana notes from the aroma are front and center with a bite of citrus taking the high notes. Dark chocolate, roasted coffee bean, tobacco leaf, and charred oak form the baseline while notes of dark caramel, toffee, nutmeg, menthol, old leather form the middle. As the rum begins to fade the bitter sweet notes of smokey oak tannins, cooked apples, boosted by a hit of alcohol linger in a long mineral rich finish."
