  • Santa Teresa 1796 Rum

    Single Modernist Rum

    70cl / 40%

    4.5 (29 Reviews)

    Santa Teresa 1796 Rum

    Honeyed single estate rum from Venezuela with elements of bitter chocolate, nuts and buttery biscuits. It is made, unusually for a rum, through the solera process: casks of different aged rums are stacked vertically, the oldest (aged around 35 years) at the bottom, and as the distiller draws rum from one cask they top it up with younger liquid from the blend.

  • Foursquare Diadem 12 Year Old / TWE Exclusive

    Single Traditional Blended Rum

    70cl / 60%

    5 (2 Reviews)

    Foursquare Diadem 12 Year Old / TWE Exclusive

    This is the second exclusive bottling for the Whisky Exchange from Barbados' Foursquare distillery. Named Diadem - a type of crown or headband worn by monarchs as a sign of royalty - this rum is definitely a crown jewel. A single traditional blended rum( from pot and column stills), this has been aged for 12 years in ex Bourbon and ex Madeira casks. The Madeira brings a wonderful fruit and nuttiness to the rum with notes of prune, orange rind and plenty of dried fruit. The bourbon cask gives sweet nutmeg and powdered spices with vanilla and buttered popcorn. The palate is rich and intense with a delightful vein of acidity that opens up the palate to bring the ripe banana and pineapple to the fore, alongside red cherries and linseed oil with a hint of green walnut on the finish. This rum needs time in glass to allow it to open up and develop. Just over 2000 bottles have been produced.
