This is the second exclusive bottling for the Whisky Exchange from Barbados' Fousquare 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.Tasting Notes (2)
Private Cask Selection
12 Year Old
Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Crême brûlée and freshly polished leather; lardy cake and fresh paint; sugar-dusted sultanas and polished oak: a careful balance of sweet and savoury. Freshly peel bananas and spiced sponge cake develop along with roasted pineapple and brown sugar.
Toffee-covered banana fritters to start, with the toffee notes gradually getting both more singed and fruity: baked apples, overripe pineapples and squishy bananas. Char notes build to balance the sweetness, with an accompaniment of bittersweet dark chocolate.
Singed toffee notes fade to reveal more roasted banana and dark chocolate.
Dawn Davies MW, The Whisky Exchange
Top notes of vanilla and powdered spices; nutmeg and black pepper with a hint of linseed oil. Candied pineapples and red cherries sit behind.
Richly textured with tropical fruits, fudge, sweet iced tea and brown sugar.
Long and intense with a gentle spice.
