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.
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...
Very harsh on its own. Severely lacking flavour whichever way you have it. In a blind taste I would rate this very low end. There's much better tasting rums for less.
Er den rom jeg har fået fat på, desværre er den ikke på siden, så har måttet bruge denne i stedet.
Det en rom jeg ser frem til at smage, specielt fordi den er fra St. Lucia
Sweet, smooth and nicely subtle. Very good for an evening nightcap.
a nice sipping rum on the rocks...not as smokey as others...smooth on the palate
Un rhum de tout les jours. Facile a boire. Parfait pour commencer a découvrir différent style de rhum.
C'est un bon rhum mais qui n'est pas assez travaillé, cela manque de longueur en bouche.
Très bon nez par contre.
Présentation : sobre et agréable mais bouchon à vis...Belle couleur ambrée
Odeur : agréable,sucrée, boisée.
Goût : agréable, avec un petit goût de toffee doux mais ce rhum manque terriblement de corps.
Correct pour 34 EC (vu moins cher) mais rien de mémorable.
my first real step into rum whilst on holiday in St Lucia, where it's often mixed with ginger ale. Recommended, but not for serious sippers
This Rum would be a "Lowland" if it would be a whisky. Got it for around 20€ and you can sipp it. The taste is on the smooth side, close the DomRep and Cuban Rums, but still different. The distillate is of a high quality, for only 5 years it is already very smooth. BUT I would like this Rum to be sold in an older version, maybe even with a finish in a more fancy barrel than burbon. This could give St.Lucia a premium Rum product.
This is a simple but nice rum I just discovered. The bottle is nothing special and I like this rum a bit less than the HC7. However, taking into account that the contents of this guy have been aging for less than 5 years versus 7 for the Havana Club I give this spirit the same rating. Has a pleasant smell and the afterburn is not as strong as the HC7. This is certainly a sipper in my books and for about ~35CAD in the Ontario, Canada market represents a good value.
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
The scent is awfull the taste was better and the finish was okay..
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.
I found this rum to be a good bourbon. It seams to me to have many of the same taste notes as a good bourbon. Very good for the price. Wish it was available in the States.
The spiced chairman reserve is really smooth and I was expecting the same from this but it's really not that great. Fairly bland flavour and a very harsh nose, might be better with a mixer.
Feel: Gets warmer. Not overly smooth or harsh. Can be sipped. Flavours do progress nicely.
Taste: Very nutty (I would say walnut) and a little bit of spice. Almost no wood flavours which was disappointing given the colour but accepted given the price.
Price: 33 Canadian. Reasonable.
Had it and it was not as smooth as I hoped had more of a ruff bite at the start but will keep it in my collection
I tend to switch between this and 1919 as my everyday sipper. While the 1919 is a lot more commercial (and it has something I find appealing), this is in truth a much better rum. Very smooth, touch of vanilla and oak, but not enough to mask the gentle flavours on the palate. A nice medium length finish. While I note that others find the alcohol a wee bit harsh, this isn't something that I find. Given the low price this is really a 7½/10
Hard to find a better rum at this pricepoint. Smokey and fruity wonderful rum for long drinks

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.
Quite a pleasant rum with vanilla notes especially with cola. Quite smooth and not what I expected given the venue!! Need to find it in the shops for a more considered tippling!
Color : Gold, darkich! Kind of caramel!
Flavor : Honey, caramel, spices like cinamon & tonka
Palate : Med-bodied, melow, rich
Good stuff, but it's seem to sweet to be tasted net!
