CoR Foursquare Barbados No. 17 2010 11yr 59,3%

RX14109 Good Pot & Column Still Rum Single Cask 264 bottles

The Barbados No. 17 is a premium rum produced at the Foursquare distillery in Barbados and bottled by The Colours of Rum. Distilled in 2010 from molasses using both Pot and Column Still, this rum is aged for 11 years, with 5 years of tropical aging and 6 years of continental aging. It is bottled at cask strength with an impressive ABV of 59.3%, and only 264 bottles available in this limited release. Tasting notes show vanilla, alcoholic, bourbon, woody, and coconut aromas, while the flavor profile includes spicy, chocolate, caramelized, alcoholic and vanilla notes. Users find this rum to be an elegant and intriguing Foursquare expression, with a distinctive taste due to its rich bourbon character and dual aging process. While some users appreciate its overall quality and intensity, others perceive it as rather alcoholic and less representative of the usual Foursquare profile. Perfect for those who enjoy experimenting with unique rum experiences.

“Quite alcoholic nose with some vanilla and coconut. On the palate, the alcohol is still too present. This is again joined by the typical coconut and vanilla notes. Rather disappointing Foursquare.”

“Got a sample of this Foursquare rum for free from RumX. It’s a mix of column and pot still distilled rum aged for 11 years in an ex-bourbon cask, 5 years in the tropics and 6 years continentally whereafter it’s bottled in 264 bottles at 59,3%. Overall an interesting and elegant Foursquare rum that’s a little different from their own bottlings, maybe because of the continental aging.”

“Die Nase ist sehr Bourbon-lastig, klein Wunder - der Rum reifte ausschließlich im Bourbonfass. Nach einer Weile kommen leichte Noten von Weißwein dazu. Am Gaumen sehr ähnlich. Eine gewisse Intensität ist aufgrund der knapp 60% Alkohol da aber leider werden neben Bourbon, Vanille und Röstnoten nicht viele Aromen transportiert. Insgesamt gut aber für Foursquare blass, alkoholisch und nicht sehr repräsentativ. Praktisch ohne nennenswerten Unterschied zum Barbados No. 18.”
