CDI Foursquare Barbados (Bottled for Germany) 1999 18yr 50%

RX505 Very good Pot Still Rum Single Cask 290 bottles Under 250€

The "Barbados (Bottled for Germany)" is a masterfully crafted rum from the Foursquare distillery in Barbados, featuring a complex and unique flavor profile. Selected and bottled by the independent bottler Compagnie des Indes, this 18-year-old expression, distilled in 1999 from Molasses using a Pot Still, boasts a 50% ABV with only 290 bottles available in this limited release. Rum enthusiasts appreciate the harmonious blend of coconut, vanilla, and raisin aromas, with mild woody undertones. On the palate, the flavors of spicy banana, coconut, vanilla, and woodiness shine through. A well-rounded and delightful sipper, this rum is praised for its easy-drinking nature and the distinct Foursquare DNA from coconut, banana, and milk chocolate notes. It is an exemplary Barbadian rum that is appreciated even by those who aren't fans of Barbadian rums. The only deterrent might be the price, but it is a worthy addition to any rum connoisseur's collection.

“definitiv einer der besseren richtig alten Four Squares die es gibt, könnte ein paar % mehr haben um an Komplexität die ihm etwas fehlt zu gewinnen ist aber dafür ein echt schöner unkomplizierter sipper, der trotz 18y nicht zu holzig ist. Richtig schöne Foursquare DNA aus Kokos, Banane und Milchschokolade. Gefällt mir sehr gut.”

“Une Foursquare peut être un peu trop réduit mais d’une gourmandise incomparable. D’une facilité déconcertante.”

“Ein komplexer und wohl typischer Barbados-Rum, der mit vielen trockenen Aromen daherkommt. Trotz seines fortgeschrittenen Alters fehlt mir jedoch geschmacklich etwas, das mich kickt. Viele getrocknete Früchte, Fass und Leder allein reichen nicht, aber ich bin auch kein Fan von Barbados!”
