Foursquare Distillery has delivered another wonderful Rum in their Exceptional Cask Series (get some).

The Seale Family has been living and working on Barbados for nearly 370 years. They started making Rum there in 1820, selling wholesale to distributors. Eventually they opened up their own distribution company, allowing them to market premium Barbados Rums under the R. L. Seale brand in the early 1900s. Since then they have developed a range of private brands including Doorly’s, E.S.A. Field, Rum 66, and Old Brigand — all distilled at their historic Foursquare Distillery located on a former sugarcane plantation in the southeast of the island.

A "Single Blended Rum" is a Spirit that has been distilled in different kinds of stills. In the case of Foursquare Single Blended Rum is the tenth in their series of Exceptional Cask Series (ECS) and is exceptional indeed. This perfectly lovely Caribbean dram is made from molasses and has been aged a full twelve years in ex-Bourbon casks — a LONG time in the Caribbean — and is bottled at cask strength of 59% ABV. And it is just so gash-darn tasty and smooth that we could sit all day and sip through a bottle of this with a few friends and call it a GREAT day.

Appearance / Color
Dark Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
With all that time in Bourbon casks you will expect aromas of vanilla and oak spice and it’s all there, along with marzipan and tobacco leaves.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Old Rum takes on notes of leather and tobacco and they are there on the palate along with rich wood notes, papaya, banana, and a bit of chocolate.

Finish
The finish is medium length but very rich.

Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.

Rum (usually) comes from molasses, the sweet and syrupy residue of refining sugarcane into sugar. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, contributing to the final flavor.
