    One of the most highly regarded rum distilleries in the Caribbean, Foursquare consistently put out incredible rum bottlings. The 16th release from the 'Exceptional Cask Selection' series, which was originally launched in 1998, this is the oldest rum Foursquare have so far released that has spent all of its maturation time in Barbados. For 16 years the spirit rested in ex-Bourbon casks, before being bottled at 56%

    'Shibboleth' has a number of meanings - according to Merriam Webster it's akin to words or phrases used by a group, or alternatively the point of difference of a group itself. In this case, Richard Seale, owner of Foursquare, is using the term precisely because this is a Barbados rum that has spent all of it's maturation in Barbados,

    The danger with such a length of time in cask in such an environment is that the spirit becomes over=aged, with the oak cask having too much influence. Well, this is absolutely not the case here, with an incredible intenstity of dark fruit flavour supported by soft spices, evolving into hints of dry cinnamon and white pepper. It's a powerful beast, and one to be sipped at leisure.
