Foursquare 9 Year Old Port Cask Finish

The Foursquare rum distillery is owned by R.L. Seale & Co, a family company with a traceable history of rum making in Barbados dating back to 1820. The modern company dates to the 1920s, when Reginald Leon Seale set up a distribution business in the island’s capital, Bridgetown. The company’s success brought expansion, and through the latter half of the 20th century it acquired brands such as ESA Fields and Doorly’s for its portfolio. In 1995 they opened the Foursquare distillery, converting an abandoned sugar factory in the Saint Philip parish. Operating as double retort pot still and a three-column continuous still, its first spirit was produced in 1996. Foursquare produces Single Blended rum, combining its pot and column distillate both before and after being barrelled, and under the direction of Sir David Seale and his son, Richard, has become one of the most revered producers in the world.

Introduced in 2008, the Exceptional Cask Selection from Foursquare is an exemplar of the finest rum the distillery can produce. They have generally been aged to either side of a decade in cask, and bottled from bourbon casks, most of which are sourced from Jack Daniel’s, or from a variety of wood finishes. The latter is a speciality of Richard Seale, and releases have included lauded bottlings from a range of fortified wine and brandy barrels.

The second release in the range was matured in ex-bourbon for three years and finished in port casks for a further six. It was bottled in June 2014.
