Habitation Velier Foursquare Barbados 2013 2yr 64%

RX146 Very good Pot Still Rum 3,156 bottles Under 100€
“Bold, young rum with creamy texture and punchy, fruity notes.”

The Habitation Velier Foursquare Barbados is an exquisite rum distilled in 2013 at the Foursquare distillery in Barbados. Aged for 2 years and bottled at cask strength with an impressive 64% ABV, this limited-release rum has only 3156 bottles available. Its aroma is a captivating blend of vanilla, cognac, wood, caramelized, and solvents. The flavor profile offers a warm, spicy, and alcoholic punch with notes of raisins and wood. Although some users felt the alcohol presence was strong, others praised the intensity and originality of this young rum. A few drops of water can help to balance out the high proof, and the overall experience is rich with flavors, earning appreciation for its unique character and surprisingly complex taste given its relatively short aging period.

How does this rum taste?

The Barbados, a youthful Foursquare expression, offers bold, punchy flavors with hints of fresh nuts and tropical fruits. High ABV lends a strong alcohol bite; benefits from dilution. Potent yet unrefined, lively but divisive among palates.

“On the palate, one notices its young age. The alcohol comes across quite biting here. But one recognizes typical Foursquare notes. On the palate then still quite biting. But I would have blindly estimated it significantly older than 2 years. With a few drops of water, the alcoholic note is still there on the nose, but on the palate the bottling becomes more balanced and develops more flavors. But the bottom line is that the release is too alcoholic and unbalanced for me.”

“Très jeune Foursquare à la croisée des chemins entre l’alcool et l’acquisition de ses arômes typiques. Il est toutefois très timide au nez, le chêne, les fruits secs, les noix et quelques épices forment l’essentiel sur le plan olfactif. Il laisse paraître toutefois une touche alcoolique assez présente au premier abord. L’attaque en bouche est puissante. L’alcool se fait ressentir, piquant le palais et mordant la langue. Aiguisé comme une lame de rasoir, le rhum ne laisse transparaître que quelques notes sombres épicées, boisées et empyreumatiques. Il ne dévoile pas beaucoup et ne veut pas forcément en montrer plus après aération. La finale est courte et peu intéressante car tout aussi forte, rugueuse et fermée à la dégustation. Un rhum difficile d’approche à tous les niveaux. Supposant que l’idée initiale était de montrer qu’un rhum jeune pouvait avoir du caractère, c’est un fait, mais il y a clairement une erreur de casting ici, car le rhum est agressif et déséquilibré.”
