Foursquare Spiced Rum: A Bajan Delight for Every Palate

Foursquare Spiced Rum, crafted by the revered Foursquare Distillery in Barbados, is a departure from the overly sweet and artificial spiced rums flooding the market. This exceptional spirit boasts a heritage-rich pedigree, natural ingredients, and masterful blending, resulting in a complex and flavourful experience.

A Legacy in Every Bottle

The Foursquare Distillery, under the guidance of the fifth-generation distiller Richard Seale, is synonymous with exceptional rum. Their dedication to quality shines through in Foursquare Spiced Rum. Unlike many commercially produced spiced rums, Foursquare uses only natural spices and their high-quality, aged Bajan rum as the base. This meticulous approach translates into a well-rounded and refined spiced rum, perfect for sipping neat, mixing in classic cocktails, or creating your own unique concoctions.

Unveiling the Depths of Flavour

Nose:  The first encounter with Foursquare Spiced Rum is an aromatic invitation. The absence of artificial sweeteners allows the natural essence of the spices to take centre stage. Cinnamon and nutmeg lead the charge, interwoven with hints of vanilla, ginger, and a touch of citrus zest. The aroma is inviting, warm, and evokes the essence of the Caribbean.

Palate:  The initial sip of Foursquare Spiced Rum is a revelation. Unlike its overly sweet counterparts, this rum presents a drier profile, allowing the interplay of spices to truly sing. The warmth of cinnamon and ginger dances on the tongue, balanced beautifully by the subtle sweetness of vanilla and a touch of peppery spice. Hints of orange peel add a refreshing citrus note, while the aged rum base provides a smooth and sophisticated foundation. The finish is clean and lingers pleasantly, leaving behind a lasting impression of the rum's complexity.

Body:  Foursquare Spiced Rum boasts a medium body, offering a satisfying mouthfeel without being heavy or cloying. This balanced viscosity makes it perfect for sipping neat or using as a base for cocktails.

Overall:  Foursquare Spiced Rum is a masterclass in rum-making. The use of high-quality ingredients, natural spices, and aged rum results in a spirit that is both approachable and exciting. Its versatility allows it to be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or used to create innovative cocktails.

Serving Suggestions

Sipping Neat:  For the true aficionado, Foursquare Spiced Rum is best enjoyed neat. This allows the full spectrum of flavours to be appreciated, from the initial burst of spices to the lingering warmth on the finish. To enhance the experience, serve at room temperature in a snifter glass.

On the Rocks:  A touch of dilution can further open up the rum's aromas and flavours. Add a large, slow-melting ice cube to a rocks glass and pour in your Foursquare Spiced Rum. The melted ice will create a subtle dilution, softening the alcohol content while highlighting the rum's complexity.

Classic Cocktails:  Foursquare Spiced Rum elevates classic cocktails to new heights. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Spiced Rum Old Fashioned: Combine 50ml Foursquare Spiced Rum, 2.5ml Demerara sugar syrup, 2 dashes of Angostura bitters, and a dash of orange bitters in a mixing glass with ice. Stir well and strain into a rocks glass over a large ice cube. Garnish with an orange peel.
  • Spiced Rum Daiquiri: Muddle a lime wedge in a shaker. Add 50ml Foursquare Spiced Rum, 25ml fresh lime juice, and 12.5ml simple syrup. Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled coupe glass.

Modern Mixology:  Foursquare Spiced Rum's versatility makes it a perfect base for exploring your own cocktail creations. Here's an inspiration:

  • Caribbean Sunset: Combine 50ml Foursquare Spiced Rum, 25ml pineapple juice, 25ml grapefruit juice, and 12.5ml grenadine in a shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a hurricane glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a pineapple wedge and a maraschino cherry.
