This hard to acquire rum has been called "The Pappy of Rums."
Foursquare Rum Distillery is located on a former sugar plantation that dates back to approximately 1720, within the tiny Caribbean island of Barbados. The distillery was re-opened by the Seale family in 1996, distilling operations and blending are currently directed by Richard Seale, 4th Generation Trader/Distiller of R.L. Seale & Co.
Exceptional Cask Selections represent the unique, and rare offerings of Foursquare Rum Distillery that Richard has hand selected – his personal projects only released when he feels they are of exceptional quality. These are one of a kind expressions, available only for a limited time, and showcasing truly unique approaches to both Rum blending and maturation.
Foursquare produces limited amounts of artisan rum each year, using different cooperage and different blends. The 2005 is a single blended Barbados Rum, made in a combination of pot still and column still. Aged for 12 years in a combination of first, second and third fill Ex-Bourbon barrels, bottled at 59% ABV. The red-hot, limited production 2005 is a brilliant rum bursting with flavor. It's no wonder why Foursquare has become a collector's rum with an almost cult-like following.
