Gets better when it sits for a while. Still, not fantastic.
It's alright, maybe a hint of vanilla. Not sure I'd buy another bottle but it would do in a pinch.
This rum starts sweet and warm. The finish has an alcohol taste wich is not too strong. Do let it breathe for a while, it improves this rum a lot.
Received as a gift. I keep trying it straight and with different mixes, hoping it gets better. So far, it has not. A 4.5 on my scale of 10.
Very nice for mixing open to let it breath for a little and sip away
Chairman´s Reserve bych přirovnal k povinné školní četbě. Konkrétně mám na mysli tu, která je sice považována za kvalitní, ale jejíž obsah je v podstatě jedna velká lyrická nuda, která téměř nikoho nebaví. Tomuto rumu totiž chybí děj, šťáva, výraz, rukopis, drive, prostě něco, co vás posadí na zadek a donutí o rumu přemýšlet, mluvit či koupit další láhev. Ochutnávkou nic zásadního nezažijete, a proto také nemáte o čem zajímavém psát. To, že se jedná o kvalitní a čistý rum s lehce kořenitou vůní doplněnou špetkou ethanolu, uvedl již v recenzích téměř každý. Ale ta stereotypní čichová i chuťová pasivita jednoduše nedovoluje známkování hodné skutečných šampionů. Takže velká škoda, jelikož se primárně jedná o jemnou a nedoslazovanou poctivost za podhodnocených čtyři-pět stovek. Ani to však neposune vzhůru mé hodnocení končící pouze šestkou s plusem za nulový cukr.
Aroma: floral, honey and at the same time dry, spices dominant flavor, light vanilla, oak
Taste: smooth, dry, spicy, peppery. Liquid body
Aftertaste: short, soft. First sweetness, then there is oak bitterness
Classic rum. You will not find anything complex in it. Dry, smooth, spicy. Feels young. For a little money you can take for a drink.
65 points. If there was less bitterness in the aftertaste, you could put more.
Chairmans is a nice tasty woody honey flavoured rum, nice with Coke and a slice of lime
Like the classic tasty of chairman, but average rum.
Very nice aroma, smooth taste, full body with wood tobes.
I was expecting better. I was told this was a good sipping rum. Not for my taste. Good as a mixer. For the price, there's much better out there.
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"
A slightly rubbery character in the nose with raisins, honey, vanilla and a bit of oak. The pot still is apparent. Not bad. The notes follow through in the mouth. It's not extraordinarily refined, but enough so given the price and to my palette, enjoyable neat. A nice and cheap dram.
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
Don't mean to judge it unfairly, it's quite OK if you run out of alternatives but fails to be the kind of Rum you will look for next time you want to share a qualitative drink with good company.
Not sweet, not to harsh ... I tend to find everything quite neutral about this one.
I like the flavor and full body. It does not have all of the flavors that top brands do but good all the same. I will get it again in the future.
Not the best sipping rum I've ever had. For the price, there's much better out there.
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.
Plenty of flavour and a hit that will warm you up. Not a great sipper but great in cocktails.
I am on the fence with this rum. I want to dislike it, however, something about it is enjoyable. A very woody flavor, with a long warm ending.
Nice nose of honey and some spice , dry and a bit of a bite. Tried it the locals way with coconut water , ice and lime... wont be doing that again !! Better sipped neat or with an equal measure of organic cola. Good value for money here in Aussie..
It's a smooth rum that does not burn on the throat . Delicate flavour and a lovel taste . Not a top shelf but a quality standard of rum .
While a bit too plain to sip on its own, it is one of my favorites for mixing. It has some of the distinct St. Lucia-taste, so if you are not into that, go with a more normal mixer. But if you want a little more bite in your drinks, this one will do the trick.
