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.
Tasty, but not quite great
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"
Neat its a quite warm sip.better than when mixed with coke. I preferred it with a little breathing time. In other words I let it sit for a while. I'm not going to rush out and replace this bottle but not because i didn't like it. It's just very similar to other stuff and there's so many more to try.
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.
Great nose that's slightly sweet and floral. First taste is overpowering with oily sour molasses. Long spicy finish that doesn't go down very well. Just not too many flavors cone through over a pretty substantial burn.
Quality mid range rum. Quite ok to sip straight, and with enough taste to be distinctive in mixed drinks. Pity there isn't a premium aged version available.
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.
"Chairman's Reserve rum review by The Fat Rum Pirate"
"It can be sipped and it isn’t rough or harsh. There is a bit of an alcohol burn but even that is quite smoky and pleasant."
