Les Freres de la Cote 2012 Foursquare 9yo 65.7% 500ml information

The Les Freres de la Cote 2012 Foursquare 9yo is a premium rum from the renowned Foursquare distillery in Barbados, crafted by the esteemed brand Les Frères de la Côte. This limited edition rum, with only 405 bottles produced, captures the essence of high-quality rum production with its intense flavors and complex aroma. Distilled in 2012 using both Pot and Column Still from Molasses, this exceptional rum is aged for 8 years in American ex-bourbon casks, followed by an additional aging in old Oloroso sherry casks.

This rum is highly celebrated for its rich and robust flavors of grilled coconut, burnt sugar, roasted tropical fruit, and a strong, full-bodied taste. The aroma is equally enchanting, offering captivating notes of cocoa, tropical fruit, passion fruit, vanilla, and custard.

After its initial aging, the rum embarked on a dynamic 4-month voyage aboard the Brigantine Tres Hombres for an additional maturation. It then spent an additional 10 months resting in the Forezian climate (in the Saint-Etienne region) before being bottled unfiltered and at cask strength (65.7% ABV) in April 2021.

The result is a rum with a concentrated woody flavor, enhanced by a solvent that gives it remarkable intensity. The American oak delivers on its promises, with a concentrated gourmet vanilla flavor, grilled coconut, and blond tobacco. The mid-palate experience is more intense, with a gentle warmth and spice.

The Old Rums from Les Freres de la Cote are meticulously selected by the captain of the Tres Hombres during his journey around the Atlantic. This rum exemplifies the traditional techniques and unexpected nuances that make Les Freres de la Cote stand out.
