Bottled By: Berry Bros & Rudd 70cl / 50.8%
Richard Seale's Foursquare distillery in Barbados make consistently superb rum, rejecting the use of artificial colouring or added sweeteners and never afraid to push the envelope with unorthodox cask types.
This is a single cask of Foursquare's 2010 vintage Barbados rum that began its maturation in a bourbon barrel before being transferred for a finishing period in an ex-Sauternes wine cask. This single cask Berry Bros Foursquare 2010 11-year-old has been bottled at its natural cask strength of 50.8%, and is a going to be an absolute must for rum fans.

Official Tasting Notes
Hailing from one of the world’s prominent and imaginative distilleries, Foursquare continues to pump perfection. Richard Seale and his team are innovative distillers, investing in the kit but respecting the past.
This is a balanced and honeyed style that should appeal to many palates. A mix of the tropics and just about every nuance of fruit you could throw at a rum, augmented by its ageing in Sauternes casks. Delicious!
Doug McIvor Says
“Rum from Foursquare has long been a personal favourite due to its balance, subtle complexity and charm. It is also unswervingly consistent in quality and as a judge for the rum category of the International Spirits Challenge for a few years now it has never surprised me to see Foursquare reaping the top awards.”
