About FourSquare Port Cask Finish Rum
The history of Foursquare Rums begins in 1926, when the Seale family began sourcing rum from Barbados distilleries, blending and bottling them. Eventually, they acquire other brands up until the mid-1990s, when Richard Seale, the fifth generation in the family business, worked alongside his father to renovate an abandoned sugar factory. Today, the Foursquare Rum Distillery’s output rivals that of its neighbor Mount Gay Rum.
Foursquare Distillery, is situated in St. Philip, Barbados, is one of the steadfast supporters of Caribbean rum production. This particular release was created by 4th generation distiller Richard Seale (also known as the “Pappy of Rum”), as a tribute to an early period of rum production when it was transported in ex-sherry and port barrels.
This Four Square Port Cask is distilled using a combination of column and pot stills, before being aged 3 years in ex-bourbon barrels. The Caribbean elixir is aged an additional 6 years in ex-port barrels. This Foursquare Port Cask initially has quite a lot of oak on the palate. It is a very smooth sipping very clean rum. Followed by a dry slightly tannic red wine finish.
