The quintessential rum created in the most iconic distillery on the island of Barbados. Powerful with a very long finish, an amazing rum to pair with an excellent Caribbean cigar.
In 1995 Sir David Seale gambled on buying a sugar mill whose oldest building dates back to 1636 and was largely decrepit. His intuition paid off and that site became the Foursquare Distillery, now standing out as one of the most modern rum distilleries yet with an unmistakable style.
The molasses come from different countries and are fermented with a process of medium duration and intensity. Subsequently the distillation takes place both in a double column with 40 copper plates and in a beautiful Pot Still Forsyth Double Retort with a small column.
The peculiarity of Foursquare is that of mixing the distillate obtained from the two types of alembic (continuous column and pot still) directly in the barrels. Cuspid has selected this rum and aged it for 16 years in an ex-bourbon barrel.
The bouquet is very structured and full of sweet and soft scents that release caramelized notes of yellow fruit and vanilla.
