A powerful, unassuming rum from Barbados' Foursquare distillery.
The Plenipotenziario is the latest in a series of overproof collaborations with Foursquare's Richard Seale and Italian bottler Velier's Luca Gargano.
Distilled 2007 and released in 2019, the rum was blended in the ex-bourbon barrels and it spent 12 years aging in the tropics. Bottled at 60%, there are 6,000 bottles worldwide.
Plenipotenziario is a word created from a few Latin words, translating roughly to "with full powers".
This is designated as a "single blended rum" by the Velier classifications, so from one distillery and through both pot and column stills.
Pouring quite thick, this is a rum of heavy flavours - vanilla and tobacco leaf with chocolate and pepper on the finish.
