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.
