2010 represents the latest release from Foursquare Distillery, Barbados. The twenty-first release (Mark XXI) in the Exceptional Cask Selection, continuing the award-winning Vintage series which launched with the ground-breaking, and critically acclaimed 2004.

2010 is a Single Blended Rum, in that it is a blend of heavy and light marques Rums distilled in the copper double retort pot-still, and the continuous twin column stills of Foursquare Distillery. Matured in Barbados for 12 years in ex-bourbon cask American white oak. Presented at 60% alcohol by volume, without chill-filtration, at its natural colour, and free from sweeteners and other flavourings

Tasting Notes by Peter Holland, Foursquare Brand Ambassador:

Nose: A complex nose packed full of juicy raisins and dried figs. Lots of butterscotch and dark chocolate. A gentle earthy, herbaceous dried sage note cues against pineapple and ripe mango. Spiced marzipan, with a gentle mineral salinity.

Palate: Sweet juicy sultanas lead a riot of rich toffee and fudge-y salted caramel. Hints of Seville orange, and more sweet-ripe mango and a pleasing tart Victoria plum dimension.

Finish: A long and warming finish full of black pepper, bitter coffee, and dark bitter chocolate. More of the Seville orange note interweaves.

Overall: This Vintage release brings a complex and engaging sip that rewards exploration, but remains an accommodating companion in a social setting. The perfect bottling for those new to the Cask Strength Limited Edition releases from Foursquare, and rewarding for those who have followed the series for sometime, as 2010 is a new profile direction for the ECS Vintage series.

About the distillery

The Seale family, owners of Foursquare Distillery, have been in Barbados since 1650, and boast 5 generations of rum-makers dating all the way back to 1820.

The distillery itself was a mostly dilapidated sugar factory until it was purchased in 1996 by Sir David Seale who invested heavily in state-of-the-art equipment and renovation. Now Foursquare is at the cutting edge of rum production, boasting a three-column vacuum still and a modern pot still, allowing for the production of both light and heavy styles of rum.

Foursquare has forged a reputation for quality and integrity which means no additional sugar and flavourings are added to any of their rums, preferring instead to focus on production methods and long cask ageing to achieve their signature style.

Alongside Foursquare Rums, the distillery is also behind the Doorly's and The Real McCoy brands, and produces a delicious Rum Cream Liqueur made with coffee, cream and light rum.
