Romdeluxe batch no. 4 – RDL 4
We repeat the success from RDL 2. Also in this case, we have a Foursquare rum in cask strength, but this time of 58.8 %! We just couldn’t say no to this unique opportunity to get another round of the delicious cask strength rum from Barbados. The rum is 11 years old and has aged in an old bourbon barrel. This has provided the rum with the very typical taste and smell of toffee, raisins, chocolate, a hint of citrus fruits, as well as walnuts characterising Foursquare.
- Additional information
The Foursquare Distillery occupies the site of a former sugar factory, which dates back to 1636. This distillery is considered as one of the most modern and efficient rum distilleries in the world and is designed to be energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. The distillery produces light rums in a three-column vacuum still and heavier rums in a modern pot still. RL Seale is one of Barbados’ oldest trading houses, a family-owned business whose involvement in rum making extends from father to son since 1820. The current owner, Richard Seale, is one of the region’s most innovative distillers and blenders and has a passion for producing perfect rum with great taste. Rum has been produced on the island of Barbados for more than 300 years. However, it was not until the 1906 Rum Duty Act was passed that the industry began to develop rum as we know it today. Prior to this, the distillation took place on many plantations of the island, but the new law meant that the distilleries had to obtain a licence. The rum is cask strength and has a natural colour.
