About Foursquare Exceptional Cask Selection Mark XXV Equipoise

Equipoise means: “a state of balance.”

A 14-year, double-maturation single blended rum, consisting of artisanal Pot and Traditional Twin Column Coffey distilled molasses rums.

Aged first for 10 years in ex-bourbon barrels, then four additional years in ex-calvados casks.

All aging, blending, and bottling occur on-site at Foursquare Rum Distillery in Barbados.

Tasting Notes for Foursquare Exceptional Cask Selection Mark XXV Equipoise

Rich and expressive but with an underlying bright citrus note. Layers of berries, cacao beans, caramelized orange, and a hint of nuttiness evolve into subtle spice, leather, and a hint of pipe tobacco on the close. Overall bold and complex, it lingers on the palate.

Suggested Serves

Equipoise Sazerac: The anise notes in absinthe and bitters drive up the rum's chocolate notes. As a stirred cocktail, the oils in the rum are allowed to coat the palate more evenly, allowing for a more pleasurable cocktail experience. 

Equipoise Jack Rose: Citrus and grenadine bring out more of the rum's tropical fruit notes. As a shaken cocktail, it is lighter, and effervescent, leading to an easier, more approachable drinking experience given the abv.

Production Notes

The Foursquare Exceptional Cask Selection Mark XXV Equipoise is derived from a blend of rums, aged for 14 years in ex-bourbon casks and blended with rums aged 10 years in ex-bourbon before being aged an additional four years in ex-calvados casks, a laborious method known as the 'double maturation process.' The distillation process takes place in both pot and column stills, retaining the richness of traditional distilling methods. The result is a rum of enhanced complexity and refinement that invites you to explore, taste, and appreciate its nuanced character.

    A **** Good Rum!!!

    I highly recommend this Rum. Foresquare does a really good job at their double cask finishes.

    Nose: On the nose, there is an initial banana funk, woodsy caramelness that leads into a crisp apple, freshly grated nutmeg, and a molasses finish.

    Taste: On the tongue, the front picks up the copper still flavors and fruity wine notes from the additional aging in the calvados cask. Towards the middle, the ex-bourbon cask picks up its 10-year-old weight and delivers a punch of vanilla and oak. Last, but not least, the back of the tongue picks up more of the funk from the nose as it blends with the vanilla and oaks notes from the middle.

    For a spirit that is 122 proof, it goes down with ease and is quite mellow in the sense of higher proof. You get all the flavors you're looking for from a copper pot/column still blend, and at a good age that will keep you happy as you go for your 5th pour. Keep for neat sipping. If you need to try it as a cocktail, I recommend something that will keep the rum at the front. I recommend a Rum Old Fashion: 2oz Rum, 0.5oz rich demerara syrup, with 2 dashes of Angostura bitters and a flamed orange twist.
