First time was on old plantation veranda in St Lucia, was one of the best rums they had. Enjoyed it with a nice cigar. Had it again recently wanting to relive the moment. Good rum 7.5 but not great.

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.

Měl jsem možnost ochutnat vzorek a jeho síla i nasládlá chuť s dlouhým závěrem mě hodně oslovila. Doporučuji vyzkoušet!

St Lucia is my favorit rum island and Admiral Rodney one of my favorit brands.

- vůně jemná, hutnější, karamelová, dub
- chuť jemná, více nasládlá, koření, karamel
Zrání v sudech po bourbonů se promítá do vůně i chutě, příjemný, 40% vcelku dostatečných

Ikke en rom jeg vil købe igen, Jeg bryder mig ganske enkelt ikke særligt meget om den.

I was hoping this would be a good sipping rum but I didn’t find it particularly smooth or tasty. I can’t pinpoint exactly why but it just didn’t hit the spot.
