Introducing the "Spirit of Art #3," a Barbadian rum produced at the Foursquare distillery, selected and bottled by the independent bottler Valinch & Mallet. This limited release is aged for 16 years after being distilled in 2005 from molasses with a Pot and Column Still. With an impressive cask strength of 56.7% ABV, this coveted edition is limited to only 288 bottles. RumX users have praised its nose, which showcases an aromatic blend of coconut, vanilla, cream toffee, dried fruit, and nutty notes. The flavor profile features coconut, allspice, chocolate, smoky and nutty notes. Though some found this rum typical of Foursquare, others appreciated its complexity, character, and pleasant balance between fruity and smoky notes. All in all, the "Spirit of Art #3" is a must-try for rum enthusiasts who enjoy a harmonious blend of flavors with distinct, bold characteristics.

“This is a tasting set from 2022 where we had a lot of fun around the table. Another really nice release from Valinch & Mallet and the price tag matches what you get. Fruity with a nice smoky note in the profile with good ABV integration. There is a light nutty note on the profile. Draws really nice curtains in the glass and the empty glass is really nice with some added chocolate and light coffee.”

“The look at the label arouses excitement, because from the frame data very similar to the Shibbo. On the nose comes at the beginning a delicious scent of cream candy, only after a while in the glass come more FS typical notes like the coconut. On the palate, dark chocolate, but also a hefty helping of roasted flavors (roasted nuts) and decent wood barrel. The finish is again quite soft. Conclusion: Not as round as the Shibbo, but finally again a FS with character and rough edges!”
