a lovely smooth rum with a light spicy fruity after taste, nice sipper but I prefer with coke and ice.

Great rum that you can drink on the rocks or straight. I went to the distillers and those guys know what they are doing.

I love the blend of oak, spice and fruit and the gentle burn from the alcohol. The one thing I would like this to have, is a fuller finish. While it is moderately long, it lacks a real punch. But a beautiful rum none the less.

Disclaimer: I love the Chairman's Reserve from St Lucia Distillers. So I was anxious to try their next-in-line offering. I found many of the same characteristics here - a wonderful color in the glass, a great variety of flavors in the mouth (though tending toward caramel/burnt-sugar), and a smooth cool finish. This rum is a pleasure to sip. However, the additional aging seems to remove the one thing that makes the Chairman's Reserve unique - it's foxy, grassy, au-naturale aroma. Call me a heathen, but given the price difference, I can't rate this higher than the Chairman.

I love this elegantly balanced rum, that fits almost every occasion. 100% collum still with 0% added sugar. Rather complex despite no pot still has been used, in contrast to most other st. lucian rum.
The nose is remarkably sweet, considering the absence of sugar, with notes of oak, leather, brown sugar and vanilla. The taste will make any real rum lover happy, especially considering the price. In many ways it's comparable to rum like Flor de cana 25 or Appelton 21, and at a significantly lower price. On the slightly sweet palate refined notes of leather, sweet tobaco, brown sugar and prunes treats you good, before fading into lovely tingling oaky tones. A bloody keeper.

Aroma: Vanilka, v pozadí mandle. Od Princessy se příliš neliší
Chuť: Nasládle kořenitá
Dozvuk: Špetka vanilky a dřevo. Ultrakrátký, plytký, vodový
Sladkost: 0/3
Ochutnán vzorek, 27.1.2021, porovnán s HMS Princessa
Ve vůni je skoro stejný jako Princessa, i když ne tak výrazný. Nicméně v chuti a hlavně v dozvuku je plytký a jakoby zředěný vodou. Špatný rum to vyloženě není, ale v porovnání s Princessou velmi zaostává.

Na začiatku vás upúta krásna flaša. Chuť a vôna sú tipické pre Sv. Luciu - dub, vanilka, koža, tmavá čokoláda a trochu možno aj tabak alebo dym. Naozaj výborny jemný nasládly rum. Mne osobne by nevadil aj keby bol trochu výraznejší. Manželke veľmi chuti!!! Bohužial tento sa už nevyrába a tak treba skúsiť aj ostatné zo série.

To bad of the strong alcohol taste. But apart of that, a nice balanced tast of caramel vanilla

Definitely a man's rum. Mild burn, no sweetness whatsoever ever.

I bought this rum because it had won so many awards.
It was indeed a very good rum to drink. Really enjoyed it. Pity it's empty.
Can't buy or find it here anymore.
