A bright spot amidst our Covid-19 and back-to-school blues - the latest iteration in Foursquare's Exceptional Cask Selection (the 13th to date).
The 2008 is a Single Blended Rum, a blend of rums distilled in the copper double retort pot still and the continuous twin column still of Foursquare, aged in Barbados for 12 years in ex-bourbon cask American White Oak. Then bottled at 60% alcohol without chill-filtration, all natural colour, and free from sweeteners and other flavourings.
A complex combination of ripe mango and roasted pineapple on the nose. Gently Brazil-nutty with hints of star anise, eucaluptus oil and herbaceous black tea. Burnt sugar and carmel, leather and hot tarmac.
On the palate a warming combination of rich fudge, sweet caramel and buttery toffee. Over-ripe plum, gentle honeycomb and rich plum Majhool dates.
A seemless transition over the palate and into a long-lasting dry finish that moves from the rich dried fruits into soft peppery baking spices, einding with a little tingle of warmth, and the pleasing lip-smacking expectation of another sip.
Warninks Advocaat is a smooth velvety liqueur with a creamy texture. Advocaat is a traditional Dutch alcoholic beverage made from eggs, sugar and brandy. Warninks Advocaat is full bodied with a sweet and creamy texture with aromas of vanilla. The rich and creamy drink has a smooth, custard-like flavour and is comparable to eggnog. It is a classic brand that is enjoyed in cocktails like Snowball as well as neat with whipped cream on top.Warninks
