One bottle each of Foursquare Sovereignty Exceptional Cask Selection Mark XIX Rum and Doorlys 14 Year Old Gold Rum. Maximum one order per household due to the VERY limited nature of the Sovereignty!

Foursquare Sovereignty is the nineteenth release (Mark XIX) in the Exceptional Cask Selection series and a bottling that marks Barbados becoming the world's newest republic. This auspicious occasion has been celebrated by the Foursquare team as they have drawn on some of the distillery's oldest Rums.

This complex release has been crafted from a complex maturation bill. A three year old ex-bourbon cask Rum was then matured for a further eleven years in old, refill sherry casks. This dual maturation was then further blended with a fourteen year old ex-bourbon cask matured Rum. Presented at 62% ABV, this stunning Rum continues to reflect the excellent work that the award-winning team at Foursquare Distillery are known for.

The Sovereignty rear label bears the following quotation that befits the dawn of Barbados’ new era. “In the season of the republic, it is time for Government to back its national economic champions over foreign multinationals, and to claim its oldest and most distinguished industry for the nation” - Prof. Richard Drayton

Sovereignty is a Single Blended Rum, in that it is a blend of heavy and light marques Rums distilled in the copper double retort pot-still and the continuous twin column still of Foursquare Distillery, presented free from sweeteners and other flavourings. Fully matured and bottled at Foursquare Distillery, Barbados.

Doorlys 14 Year Old Gold Rum is another fabulous rum from the Doorly's! Doorly’s Fine Old Barbados Rum Aged 14 Years is a blend of Pot and Column distilled rum. The rum has been aged for 14 years in ex-bourbon casks. A portion of the blend was aged in ex-Madeira casks. Woody oak notes dominate initially giving to some fruit. This is more dark fruits though – blackberries and some prunes. The palate has an almost charred note to it. Little bursts of vanilla and some ginger fade in an out of the mix. The mid palate shows more of the Madeira influence. Notes of red wine and blackberries mingle alongside dark chocolate and some faint notes of marmalade. Finish wise we are left with a spicy and slightly heated end to the rum – white pepper and lots of ginger and a trace of cinnamon. The finish is very long and the rum lingers for a long time.
