Velier Foursquare Principia Single Blended Rum

, , ,

Velier Foursquare Principia Single Blended Rum is the third release in the acclaimed special collaboration series between Richard Seale of Foursquare and Luca Gargano of Velier. A double maturation masterpiece aged in ex-Bourbon & ex-Sherry barrels. This latest releases follows the success of the acclaimed Foursquare 2006 (1st release) and Triptych (2nd release) single blended rums.

Velier Foursquare Principia Single Blended Rum is a double maturation aged 3 years in ex-Bourbon American Oak followed by 6 years in ex-Sherry casks. Produced from a blend of rums distilled in 2007 and 2008, this cask-strength bottling reveals first an aromatic palette whose construction deserves hearty praise for its watchmaker-like precision. With the same precision, the finesse and ethereal character of the spirit are beautifully showcased in its enthralling palette of flavours. On the finish, the fervour with which it takes up its pilgrim stick reflects this Foursquare’s desire to continually refine its masterpiece.

Tasting Notes: the full-bodied initial nose is marked by notes of vanilla, almond milk and fresh walnut. It also reveals a huge variety of fruit (bramble, cherry, apricot) and chocolate. Allowed to breathe, it becomes empyreumatic (crème brûlée). The heady attack is very spicy (pink peppercorn, cinnamon). The spirit’s finesse beams on the mid-palate. The finish is softened by notes of raspberry coulis and apple jelly.

Fully matured in the tropics and bottled in 2017, this is one of only 5400 bottles worldwide.
