Empery 14 Year Old Cask Strength Rum
Foursquare’s empire continues to grow with the release of Empery. And if he keeps producing rum as good as this we’re happy to remain loyal subjects of Richard Seale’s dominion.
Empery is a limited edition release in the “Exceptional Cask Selection” series – a blend of pot-still and column-still rums aged in ex-Bourbon casks for 10 years, followed by a further four in ex-Sherry barrels. This 14-year-old rum was matured entirely in the tropical paradise of Barbados. Considering that maturation in this climate is two or three times faster than in Europe, this is exceptional value for money compared to a Scotch of 20 years or more. There’s no sugar added, no colouring, no additives whatsoever and no gimmicky packaging, just another exceptional rum from probably one of the greatest distillers in the world today, Richard Seale. The Sherry influence comes through in crashing waves of Christmas cake and sweet orange peel like marmalade, which splash against a shore of bitter dark chocolate, vanilla fudge, salted caramel, peppercorns and sun-baked Caribbean fruit. The mastery is in how rich and smooth it is, while remaining completely dry. Richard Seale may well be the saviour of rum. He’s of the opinion that adding sugar and flavourings only create an illusion of quality, something that’s actually damaging the rum industry and its reputation. When you taste his exquisite dry rums, it’s clear he’s onto something. It’s time for the empire to strike back.
Foursquare Empery was lovingly crafted in the birthplace of rum by the same family-run distillery that brought you R.L. Seale’s, Doorly’s, Rum Sixty Six, Velvet Falernum, not to mention countless collaborations with Velier’s Luca Gargano and their friends the Guardians of Rum. This latest creation by Master Distiller Richard Seale is another masterpiece in an enviable and highly collectable back catalogue.£11.86 per 100.00ml
