Smooth with a nice honey coloring.. Nothing wrong with it and nice to drink whilst relaxing with a book or paper..
Just not fully "up there"

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 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.

Nose: Nutty
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.
Presentation: Ugly.
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

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.
