Last year a good friend who is also a lover of rum, recommended I try Chairman’s Reserve spiced rum. This quickly became one of my favourite rums, I then began a quest to sample all the rum Chairman’s Reserve had to offer, beginning with original.

Chairman’s Reserve hails from the island of Saint Lucia. The original was first blended in 1999 as a special project to create a fine rum to represent the island of Saint Lucia. It is a combination of selected aged rums of Coffey pots stills and copper pot stills and finished in oak for blending.

For this tasting I exchanged the ginger ale for a Kombucha ginger and lemon, for a healthier option. As per usual I began with it neat with ice and rums favourite friend lime. The quality of this rum really shines though with its smoothness, although being a lover of rums I rarely find one that I can drink neat and this falls into this unlikely category. It has a smoky-oaky aroma and on the palate has tastes of chocolate, tobacco and cloves.

The closest worthy accompaniment to this rum was the tonic water, it did help bring out some of the flavours but felt as though the tonic drowned out the rum. As far as the ginger and lemon Kombucha, this felt like the natural lime and the lemon flavouring, coupled with the other flavours just battled with each other to which there was no winner. With such a great rum, combining it with coke (especially a generic brand) feels wrong, and this did nothing to enhance or complement the flavours of the rum.

View: Pours golden brown.

Nose: A ton of honey on the nose with some char.

Initial Tasting: One of the smoothest rums I've tasted. No bite whatsoever. Raisin and spice.

Body: Drinks like a bourbon. Spice and oak.

Fade: Smoother than a baby's behind.

Warm, but not overpowering. Lovely to sip in the evening. Caramel, zest and a mild spicy note make for a perfect rum to chill with.

I love this rum and my first bottle is almost gone. It's not a spiced rum but has tons of flavor and a spicy finish. Overall, it's a very smooth experience with lots of aroma and action on the palate. This one does not have a fancy label so it doesn't stand out on the shelf but it tastes better than most other gold/dark rums in that price range.

With the first glass, I really enjoyed just sniffing it, on the nose there is hint of Jamaican-style overripe banana, especially at the beginning of the bottle, towards the end of the bottle you can feel more pronounced charred oak, it has sweet and fruity taste, with the smoky tones of a good whisky combined with a bit of toffee, tiny alcohol bite at the end which is which is almost hidden in the aftertaste which combines spicyness with charred barrel, it is surprisingly smooth and sippable for its age (under 5y), with no added sugar. It is not a very complex rum in the taste profile, but it is very well made and the combination of wood with a bit of Jamaican funk works very well for me. I can sip it, mix it, it excels in both categories. It is a bloody good value for the money, so there goes score 8.

Smooth rum and can be drunk on its own or over ice. Also good with ginger ale.

first tasting was quite average but it grows with every following session.
tase is rounded by oak and vanilla tones. Aftertaste is sweet with vanilla and caramel.

Another stunning rum from this great St Lucia distillery. Great sipper. Not as much depth as the 1931 but very smooth. Great character. Not sweet. Bite with balance. Great price for a rum of this quality and distinctive flavor. Beautiful long slow finish. MORE PLEASE!
