Foursquare Plenipotenziario Single Blended Barbados Rum 12YO 700mL ABV 60%
Out of Stock
Produced from a blend of light rums distilled in a triple column still and heavy rums distilled in the distillery’s famous double retort pot still, this version enthusiastically fulfils the role of plenipotentiary bestowed upon it. Aged for 12 years in ex-bourbon casks, it has many arguments to support its legitimacy, notably a naturalness that wastes no time with flourishes, limitless generosity and a fierce passion to continually keep pushing forward.
The complex first nose is particularly exotic (mango, banana). Spicy (pepper), once allowed to breathe, it develops notes of vanilla and chocolate. Gradually, citrus fruit (lemon, orange) refreshes the palate. The concentrated attack is smoky and aniseedy. The spicy (nutmeg) and floral (carnation) mid-palate gradually becomes spicy (cayenne pepper). The silky start of the finish is fruity (apple) and candied (apricot). Very mineral (slate) and powdery (cocoa), it is then heady (lilac). The retro-nasal olfaction is a subtle mix of nuts (almond) and sweet spices (cinnamon).
