S.B.S Barbados 2009 Masala Cask Finish Rum


The S.B.S Barbados 2009 comes from a single ex-Bourbon cask of rum distilled at Foursquare, which has then been finished in a Marsala cask for a further 17 months. Rare single cask bottlings from the legendary Richard Seale are always an exciting prospect, but what makes this extra special is that Foursquare do not tend to use Marsala casks, so it offers a completely unique flavour profile.

Distilled in 2009 and finally bottled in 2019, only 310 bottles were produced of this incredible 10-year-old rum. The nose has a wonderful Marsala, Calvados, poached pear, apple sauce and custard cream character; on the palate it’s deeply warming with notes of apples caramelised with Demerara sugar, coffee and walnut cake topped with buttercream icing, Genmaicha (green tea with toasted rice), plums cooked in dessert wine, waxy apple skins and more Calvados. We were only able to secure sixty bottles, and those are rapidly diminishing, so don’t miss out.

1423 was formed when a group of friends went to a whisky fair in Denmark, but unexpectedly ended up falling in love with a rum. So infatuated with this spirit, they bought and bottled their own cask of it and the rest, as they say, is history. Their passion has opened doors to some of the rarest rums on Earth and their Single Barrel Selection (S.B.S) series offers a glimpse into a truly unique universe of unblended rum that is so rarely seen.

For those unfamiliar with Foursquare, shame on you. We’re only kidding of course, but this is one of the hottest rum creators on the planet. Named Rum Producer of the Year at the International Spirits Challenge 2017, this family-run distillery is responsible for giving the world Doorly’s, R.L. Seale’s, Veritas, Rum Sixty Six, Velvet Falernum, their Exceptional Cask Selection series and countless collaborations with the likes of Luca Gargano’s Velier. Whisky lovers might draw comparison with Bruichladdich for their cult following, rich provenance and exceptional cask management skills. But in reality, Foursquare is an entirely one-off proposition that should not be missed.
