The Foursquare rum distillery has been distilling rum 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. 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.
Holmes Cay Barbados 2007 is a standout in the traditional British style of rum making. A masterful blend of pot and column still rum, this edition has been aged 15 years in ex-bourbon and whisky/wine barrels.
Nose: Demerara sugar, caramel and tropical fruits.
Palate: Caramel follows from the nose, tangerine sweetness and noticeable vanillans.
Finish: Light oaky finish with peppery spice at the end.
