Richard Seale of Foursquare has given us another person Rum project worth savoring… slowly.

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 corner of the island.

The Exceptional Cask series represents the personal Rum projects of distillery head Richard Seale. Each is limited in quantity and released when he says so… and that’s the way it should be. Foursquare Redoutable 14 Year Old Rum is the fifteenth release in the series.

Foursquare Rums are famous for being double-distilled — once in a column still and once in a pot still for a balance of flavor and purity. This tasty dram is no exception. What makes it stand out is that half of the Spirit has been aged in Madeira Wine casks and the other half in ex-Bourbon casks for fourteen long years under the Caribbean sun. This edition was bottled in September of 2020 at a resoundingly redoutable 61% ABV.

Appearance / Color
Ruddy Bronze

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is exceptional with notes of coconut cream, allspice, oaky vanilla, and a feeling of Golden Margarita cocktail.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate opens up strong and nicely sweet with a hint of prune and tannic Wine notes floating over blackberry and pineapple with a foundation of warm tobacco leaves and cedar.

Finish
Sipped neat, the finish is long, strong, warm, lightly sweet, and a tad drying.

Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.
If the center of our galaxy had a signature scent, it would be Rum. Yup, astronomers studying a giant cloud in the Milky Way found a substance called ethyl formate, a chemical that smells suspiciously like Rum.
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.

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.
