Quick Fire Rum Tasting Notes

Foursquare Hereditas - TWE Exclusive
14 Year Old Barbados Single Blended Rum

Nose: Overripe banana skin - sherry steeped raisins – coffee soaked dates – cinnamon poached plums - Frank Coopers Oxford vintage marmalade – grilled pineapple rings - burnt caramel – a big wedge of Delia’s creole Christmas cake – gulab jamun (Indian dessert) – smoked walnuts – a tease of five spice and oodles of opulently charred oak.
 
Palate: Treacle drenched raisins, dates and sultanas - thick aged balsamic vinegar – salted caramel – baked plums – grilled peaches – clove studded oranges - sugared almonds - chocolate covered coffee beans - five spice – anise - ground white pepper and wondrous waves of wood spice.
 
Finish: A fabulously full on, feisty and spicy lingering finish.
 
Summary: A beautifully balanced, Bajan blended beauty! Over the last few years we’ve become as passionate about rum as we are about whisky, and with releases like this from one of the most exciting and inspiring brands across all rum categories, it’s very easy to understand why!
