Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Chairman's Reserve rum is produced in St Lucia using continuous and pot stills. The rum from these stills are aged for 3-4 years separetly, then combined and aged for 6 more months to marry the flavors.
The first blend of Chairman’s Reserve was produced in 1999 by St. Lucia Distillers, which was founded in 1932, and overseen by the company's Chairman Laurie Barnard.
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.
Enjoyed this one great price and lovely smooth taste.
Hard to find a better rum at this pricepoint. Smokey and fruity wonderful rum for long drinks

I love the almost-wild aromas in this rum! Both aroma and taste really seem to open up over an ice cube with some time to "settle". A little harsh on the finish, perhaps, and some continued alcohol in the nose, but something about this product rubs me the right way.
Vôňa spočiatku príliš po alkohole, korenie, v chuti alkohol, neskôr jemný. Dobrý rum, za dobrú cenu. Čí viac rumov som vypil, tým viac mi chutí.
The range as a whole represents good value. This rum has just enough pot still influence to keep it interesting and flavourful and at a good price point.
A dry smokey tasting rum with subtle flavours, easy sip straight, goes down easy
Nice young aged rum for rum and cokes... Sweeter and less harsh than most other rums of this maturity. The beautiful reddish amber is inviting as is the light molasses smell.
My "go to" rum for a consistent drink!
Try their "Admiral Rodney" rum for a smoky top shelf sipper...
Sweet, smooth and nicely subtle. Very good for an evening nightcap.
i love all the chairman"s rum. All of Them I say!!!!!!!!!!
Smooth rum and can be drunk on its own or over ice. Also good with ginger ale.
I drank about 20 or so glasses neat in St. Lucia. This is the way to go. This needs time to breath in the glass. As this sits for a while it really opens up. Nice strong spice and totally smooth with a nice amount of pot still rum. Picked up a 1L bottle in St. Lucia for 16 US. It has a strong alcohol when poured that needs time to rest to open a spicy enjoyable nose.
I fell in love with St Lucia rum 12 years ago and this rum is very typical of the Island. definitely get the vanilla, a bit strong for sipping for me, but a great mixer foe coke zero. The color is warm, and the flavor is good. And the price is wuite right for me.
Very nice aroma, smooth taste, full body with wood tobes.
This is very pleasant especially with an ice cube or two. It has an ethanol, molasses and caramel nose and taste with a slight touch of oak and spice. It is slightly sweet and has
only a moderate alcoholic kick and burn.
I would not describe it as overly complex, but having said that, the more I have drank it, the more I have liked it. It's grown on me and that is a good sign. There are a few different flavours in it, sitting together very smoothly and enjoyably. At a cost of £23 it's very good value and although it's not as different as the spiced version, it is easier to drink regularly, and I would go through this much quicker. Above all it has a really nice warming feeling and a slight brandy-like heat to it.
The rum has a flawless aroma and taste and their detailed descriptions are already brought here by the others. My personal attitude is positively twisted by the fact that we ordered this drink after a successful foosball tournament. To conclude, there's a strong desire to taste it again.
A present which is very very drinkable. a must try
Chairman's Reserve is a cracking rum, representing excellent value for money. A blend of pot and column still married together after around 5 years builds a well rounded and reasonably full Flavour, Stewed fruit and raisins on the nose and nice tingle of ethanol, the palate delivers a short hit of sweetness, banana and pear, and finishes with a lingering spicy warmth and a hint of chocolate and oak.
I love a Chairman's Reserve at the end of the night mixed with Ginger Beer, especially a fiery brand like Grace from Jamaica. it also mixes really well, the obvious choice as base for a Mai Tai and other Tiki style drinks.
Plenty of flavours going on with this one, really nice.
You can get this for about 20 quid in a supermarket, good value, you won't be disappointed.
This is one of my favorite entry level rums. I can sip it straight, on the rocks, or with coconut water. It is great in Painkillers as well. I brought back a bottle of the Forgotten Casks when we are in St. Luica. Too bad I forgot to not drink it all. This is available in the US, but in PA it generally has to be ordered as they don't carry it on the shelves.
Great for the price
great taste of melasse rum. The nose smells some flower, coffe, caramell und the taste is little bit more herb than you expect, but very well. Price/quality is very excellent. High quality by low price
Fair price for a decent rum to use in cocktails. The burn is a little too much to be sipped neat, plus the complexity of the rum falls short due to the short amount of time it has been aged. Looking forward to trying Chairman's Forgotten Cask, hoping for better results.
