Foursquare Sagacity 12 Years Old
The eleventh edition in the Exceptional Cask Selection Series. This 12 year blended rum from Foursquare distillery in Barbados, matured in ex-bourbon and ex-Madeira casks. The Sagacity is a single traditional blended rum, a blend of pot- and column-distilled rums from the same distillery.
The current head distiller, Richard Seale, is one of the region’s most innovative distillers and blenders and has a passion for producing perfect rum with great flavour. The Foursquare Distillery occupies the site of a former sugar factory that dates back to 1636 and, as one of the most modern and efficient rum distilleries in the world, is designed to be both highly energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. Foursquare rum is made from locally owned and sourced sugar cane converted to molasses, fermented very slowly over 44 hours with South African yeast and then distilled. The rum is a blend of pot still and column still rums. The pot still rum brings complexity and flavour whilst the column still rum add balance and aroma.
