This beautiful 13 year old single cask rum was produced in the Foursquare distillery in Barbados, under the spirited guidance of master distiller and blender Richard Seale, who won ICS Rum Producer of the Year in 2018, and three of whose rums were lauded with “Outstanding Gold”! The Barbados is a delicious rum of very high quality and was specifically selected in coordination with Richard Blesgraaf for the Whisky & Rum aan Zee Festival 2018 in the Netherlands in October, which will serve as the stage for its release.

Typical of Foursquare rums, it has toffee and varnish in the nose, although this one has a more pronounced wood and especially oak presence. After a while, some (dried) fruit emerges. The palate reveals these fruits as plantains, apricots, and orange peel. The oak serves as a nice balance to this sweetness. The dried fruit evolves into raisins and even black pepper. At the end there are even hints of toffee. The pepperiness is carried on in a long, medium-dry finish. On the whole this rum remains very smooth.
