Description

Foursquare Touchstone 14 Year Old Single Blended Rum is part of Foursquare’s Exceptional Cask Selection (ECS) range of Rums. This is the 22nd (XXII) release in the ECS series and it is a Single Blended Rum bottled at 61% ABV. A most welcome return to Cognac 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. The owner and talented 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. He also campaigns for for clarity in labelling of rums.

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 Touchstone 14 Year Old 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 Touchstone is a blend of twin column still and artisanal pot still distilled rum from a single distillery (hence “single blended rum”).

Ex Camus Cognac casks were filled with 2008 Vintage, 12 Year Old Foursquare ex bourbon cask Single Blended Rum, and matured for a
further two years to complete its dual maturation. This Rum was then further blended with another 14 Year Old Rum; A dual maturation comprising 5 years in ex bourbon cask, followed by a further 9 years in ex Cognac cask. Single Blended Rum bottled at 61% ABV without chill filtration, at its natural colour, and free from sweeteners and other flavourings.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes by Peter Holland, Foursquare UK Brand Ambassador: 

(Tasting notes derived from a glass of Touchstone that has been allowed to breathe for a while.)

Nose: An engaging riot of ripe mango skin, tart Victoria plum, crisp white pear, and parsnips. Seville orange oils, and green sugar cane bark. Bourbon vanilla, gentle toffee and butterscotch. Leather, freshly shelled hazelnuts, dried coconut, and gentle notes of fabric sticking plaster.

Palate: : A soft, juicy fruit bite onto the palate. Packed full of red grapes, dried pineapple, and strawberry jam. Rose Turkish Delight, and juicy sultanas. Delicate caramel and black tea. Tart and lip smacking.

Finish: A soothing delivery of chewy honeycomb sweetness, green walnuts, cumin powder, more Seville orange oils, delicate eucalyptus, all intertwined with a delicate oak grip, that reveals the long years of maturation at Foursquare.

Overall: This is a Rum to take your time with. It opens, and engages, and draws you in. Genuinely difficult to put down once you’ve a glass of Touchstone in hand.
