The new release from SLD and it appears it is going to stay, so not a limited edition. I paid just a little less than for the 'Forgotten Casks' and this seems a much more logical rum to fill the gap between the 'Original' and the Chairman's Reserve 1931.

Just like the 1931 this has both pot and column still rums, both from molasses and sugarcane (agricole) and just like the 1931 they made it work beautifully. Bottled at 43% ABV this is in my opinion a truly great extension of the Chairman's Reserve line-up.

Intense nose with baking spices, lots of fruit (pear, pineapple, passion fruit), resin, vanilla, caramel and oak. Grassy notes from the agricole part are noticable as well.

On the palate pretty complex, though less so than the 1931, with funky citrus (red oranges), sweet resin and lots of floral and fruity notes. The grassy notes give a crisp and fresh flavour with a minty part. Liquorice, salted caramel, a bit of chocolate and a mouthfull of spices in the pretty long finish.

One of the 'problems' with the Chairman's Reserve line-up is that the 'Original' is so good for so little money that the other expressions might seem overpriced (which they are not) but there is no doubt for me here; this one can easily measure with rums like MGXO, Appleton's 12yo and other real premiums in the budget category. For those who like the 'Original' but not so much the 'Forgotten Casks'; get a bottle of this stuff ASAP!

Chairman’s Reserve Legacy is a well balanced rum with classic St. Lucia notes. Fruity a bit funky. It smells good. Taste is tropical fruit, it’s quite deep with a long pleasant aftertaste. A fine rum for a fair price.
