FOURSQUARE RUM DISTILLERY Doorly's 14 Year Old Rum
The latest permanent addition to the expanding Foursquare range is the oldest expression of Doorly’s to be made available in the UK.
Handcrafted by Master Distiller and all-round hero Richard Seale using a blend of column and pot still rums that have matured for at least 14 years in ex-Bourbon barrels. It offers phenomenal value for money especially considering that a 14-year-old spirit matured in a tropical climate displays an equivalent development that might take nearer 30 years in Europe. Rums from Foursquare contain no flavourings or added sugar this one just has a little caramel to restore the cask colouring after dilution to 48% and a small portion of the blend was matured in ex-Madeira casks giving a wonderful natural sweetness and richness. There’s also more tropical fruits than a Carmen Miranda headpiece the nostalgia of toffee apples ginger beer and chocolate orange plus hedgerow berry jam cinnamon smoking barbeque embers vanilla mulled wine summer pudding and marmalade. Sip this slowly lovingly and neat.
Founded in 1908 Martin Doorly’s distillery evolved into Doorly’s Macaw and then became the first rum to be exported from Barbados. Made at the highly respected Foursquare Distillery described quite rightly by The Telegraph newspaper as “the world’s best rum distillery” as a nod to its middle incarnation each bottle of Doorly’s features a rare macaw. The 14 Year Old is emblazoned with the critically endangered blue-throated macaw which is as rare as bright and as beautiful as this great rum.
