About the Rum
Exceptional Cask Selections represent the unique, and rare offerings of Foursquare Rum Distillery that Richard has hand selected, his personal aging experiments only released when he feels they are of exceptional quality. These are one of a kind expressions, available for a limited time, and showcasing truly unique approaches to both Rum blending and maturation.

All of the Exceptional Cask Selections have been matured in Barbados in a tropical climate - accelerating multiple aspects of the maturation process, in many cases aging 2-3x faster than if in Europe or a more temperate climate.

A 12 year Aged Single Blended Rum, consisting of both Artisanal Pot and Traditional Twin Column Coffey distilled molasses rums. Aged for 12 years entirely in Ex-Bourbon Barrels. All distillation, maturation, blending and bottling occurring entirely on-site, at the at the Foursquare Rum Distillery in Barbados.

Bottled at 60% ABV - 120 Proof.

Tasting Notes

Initial Impressions: A full bodied, yet deceptively elegant sipper especially at full proof with a long, pleasing finish.
Aroma: Notes of spiced orange, star anise and vanilla give way to red
licorice, marasca cherries and dark chocolate.
Palate: Elegant and lengthy - opens with clove, cinnamon and baking
spices, balanced by fresh black plums, stone fruits, bananas foster,
caramel, and a hint of pineapple and toasted pine nuts

Awards/Reviews

Double Gold - Intl Spirits Challenge 2023

94 Points - Vinepair

"This is not a timid rum, but it also isn't overly bold and in-your-face. Sweet caramel and vanilla aromas will appeal to rum drinkers and American whiskey fans alike. Tropical pineapple, mango, and banana notes take the flavor to a new level, while concentrated molasses provides a palate of brown sugar and baking spice bliss. It's no wonder this producer is known as the "Pappy of Rum."

90 Points - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2023

"Precise, bold, punchy and well-made. Lots of orange blossom, fresh orange, spice, candied peel and ginger. Fruit comes through well. Assertive and tasty with a short bitter finish."
