L'Esprit Barbade Foursquare 2002-2022 52° : Description and customer reviews

Foursquare Spirit 2002-2022 is a molasses rum produced in Barbados by the Foursquare distillery. Founded in 1996 on the site of a former sugar mill, it is now one of the most modern and efficient distilleries in the world.

The rum was distilled in October 2002 and bottled after 20 years of maturation in oak barrels. This selection was made by the young independent wine merchant and bottler Tristan Prodhomme, based in Rennes and Vannes.

This cask number BB 8 was used to make 198 numbered copies. It was bottled in its natural colour, without reduction or cold filtration.

Nico's tasting notes

On the nose, it is quite far from the usual references of this Barbados distillery. We discover a fresh and fruity rum, but also pastry and slightly smoky, typical of a certain English style led by the pot still.

With aeration, the pastry register settles comfortably, with almond milk, a creamy side, raisins and pits. A rather soft and round smoke still coats the whole, and brings a certain velvetiness.

The palate offers a coppery attack, with intense cores and dark berry and grape tannins. This warm side is accompanied by a veil of smoke, which signals a rather full-bodied entry. The rum then melts into pastry and resinous notes, with bitter almond, sultanas, black cherries, then rosemary and pine sap.

The finish is long and exotic, with very ripe fruit and a hint of iodine.

"A Foursquare with character, which leaves behind its familiar American oak notes to let a funky distillate express itself..."
