Blackadder Raw Cask Barbados Foursquare Rum 11 Years Old

Blackadder Raw Cask Rum Foursquare Barbados aged 11 Years Rum Review by the fat rum pirateBlackadder Raw Cask Barbados Foursquare rum.  Blackadder’s Raw Cask rum selection are a number of rums which are “raw” and straight from the cask.  No colouring, no additives and no filtration, so they look a little cloudy and raw.
