Description

Foursquare Dominus Single Blended Rum is one of three Exceptional Cask Selection 2018 releases from Richard Seale’s Foursquare Distillery. Foursquare Dominus is mark VII in their Exceptional Cask Selection release and is probably the most unusual as it has some rum in the blend which has been aged in ex Cognac casks. This is the first time I have come across a rum with Cognac cask ageing. The other two 2018 releases in the Exceptional Cask Selection are the 2005 Cask Strength and the Premise (ex Bourbon and Sherry casks).

Foursquare Rum is produced by R L Seale, one of Barbados’ oldest trading houses, a family-owned business whose involvement in rum-making extends from father-to-son since 1820. Current head distiller, Richard Seale, is one of the region’s most innovative distillers and blenders and has a passion for producing perfect rum with great flavour. The Foursquare Distillery occupies the site of a former sugar factory that dates back to 1636 and, as one of the most modern and efficient rum distilleries in the world, is designed to be both highly energy efficient and environmentally friendly. Foursquare rum is made from locally owned and sourced sugar cane converted to molasses, fermented very slowly over 44 hours with South African yeast and then distilled. The rum is a blend of pot still and column still rums. The pot still rum brings complexity and flavour whilst the column still rum add balance and aroma.

Foursquare Dominus Single Blended Rum is a labelled as single blended rum which, in the proposed Gargano / Seale Categorisation of Rum, is a blend of pot still and traditional column rums, the direct comparison being with Blended Scotch Whisky – read more here.

Foursquare Dominus Single Blended Rum is, therefore, a blend of column and pot still distilled rums. The rum is aged for 3 years in ex-Bourbon casks followed by a good long 7 years in ex-Cognac cask and is bottled as a 10 year old rum at 56% ABV. As with all of the Exceptional Cask Selection range nothing is added to sweeten or colour the rum. Only 6,000 bottled releases for the European market.
