Foursquare Sovereignty, Single Blended Rum, Barbados, 62%

Notify me when this product is available:

Foursquare Sovereignty is the nineteenth release (Mark XIX) in the Exceptional Cask Selection series and a bottling that marks Barbados becoming the world's newest republic. This auspicious occasion has been celebrated by the Foursquare team as they have drawn on some of the distillery's oldest Rums.

This complex release has been crafted from a complex maturation bill. A three year old ex-bourbon cask Rum was then matured for a further eleven years in old, refill sherry casks. This dual maturation was then further blended with a fourteen year old ex-bourbon cask matured Rum. Presented at 62% ABV, this stunning Rum continues to reflect the excellent work that the award-winning team at Foursquare Distillery are known for.

Tasting Notes by Peter Holland, Foursquare UK Brand Ambassador:

Nose:  A complex combination of blackberry preserve, victoria plums, over-ripe banana, and dates. Zesty lemon peel, cocoa powder, rich caramel and toffee. Delicate ginger cake.

Palate:  Soft and sweet onto the palate. Tart and lip smacking. Lots more of the blackberry preserve, with ripe papaya and tamarind. Turkish Delight. Anise, and soft chewy licorice sweets. Another slice of gingerbread and fresh walnuts.

Finish:  Warming. Lots of grip that lingers long. Pimento and green tea. Licorice and bitter dark chocolate.

Overall:  Gloriously oily in the mouth, with a jammy sweetness and layer upon layer of delicious detail to explore. Ensure you set aside some time when you pour a glass of this work of art in liquid form.

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.
