Foursquare Shibboleth 16 Year Old Rum
Foursquare Rum Distillery's latest release "Shibboleth" spent 16 years in Ex-Bourbon Barrels on-site at the distillery in Barbados before finding its way to bottle and shelves. One might assume that with that amount of time in barrel, this would be a heavily "oaked" and "woody" release - however, the use of different degrees of "used" barrels enabled this to still be a very fruit-forward and vibrant bottling.
Nose: Caramelized Orange, Black Walnut, Almond, Black Currant, Butterscotch, Chocolate covered strawberries, Dried Apricots, Mint, and Candy floss.
Palate: Layered, rich, and complex. Notes of dark chocolate ganache, blackberry compote, butterscotch, banana nut bread, finishing with tangerine, and blood orange.
Finish: Lengthy and pleasant.
