Rum Sixty Six Family Reserve 12 Years Old

Rum Taste Master 2020

To assess the quality of rums on the market, in February last year our judges hotfooted across London to The Leaf & Cane.

In the Dark Rum – Aged 7 to 12 Years round, a Master medal went to Rum Sixty Six Family Reserve 12 Years Old, applauded for its “gorgeous, classic nose” with aromas of “raisins, caramel, oak and some grassiness”. Rum Sixty Six Family Reserve 12 Years Old hails from the family‐owned Foursquare Distillery in Barbados. Bottled at 43% ABV, it is a blend of pot and column still rums.

The 12‐year‐old expression was named in honour of the UK arm of the Seale family, which owns Foursquare, who used to travel home from Barbados with the rum in unbranded bottles to get them through the English winter.

Other categories judged in The Rum Masters included agricole‐style rums, dark, gold, white and spiced.
