Habitacion Velier Foursquare 2006

Jungle Bird Kuala Lumpur’s Joshua Ivanovic is sweet on this limited run of aged rum from Barbados.

This 100 per cent pot still rum was produced at the Foursquare Distillery in Barbados, and weighs in at 62 per cent abv:

“This is probably the best rum I have ever tried. Mind-blowing. And for three out of the 2,400 bottles they ever produced to wind up in a little bar in KL, that’s only been opened eight weeks, that’s quite impressive I think! This was the first time Luca Gargano and Richard Seale worked together. Richard is the most technologically advanced rum distiller in the world, I think, and Luca just has this nose for sniffing out the most incredible rums, and has done for two decades.”

  1. Jungle Bird looks like a nice place and I like what the owners put in motion.

    Yet, I’m surprised that such professionals say that the Foursquare 2006 is 100% pot still when it’s not. It’s written on the label, single blended rum, blend of pot and column stills from the same distillery, which is the usual style of this distillery.

    And again Clairin Sajous is not distilled in column, it’s 100% pot still. It is clearly written on the label : “Distillation : discontinue en pot still”.

    Maybe I have become a rum nerd but I’m puzzled by such mistakes.
