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.
Tasty, but not quite great
Chairmans reserve has sat on the shelves in the local supermarket for quite a while, and because its pricing sat between several off the shelf favourites I never really gave it any time with its non-assuming bottle. Recently they had an event with some colourful designs on their bottle and I was looking for something different so thought I would give it a go.
WOW- instantly became a new supermarket fave, smooth, strong but mellow caramel, and a loong finish. Adds amazing character to mixed drinks and can easily be enjoyed neat. I recently saw these on sale for a ridiculously good price so grabbed a couple more bottles as it draws towards the christmas season. Will use it for some rum-buttercream for some cakes. Don't pass this one up if you see it on the shelf.
Rhum qui tire un peu sur le whisky, assez fort en goût mais les saveurs de vanille et fruit restent longtemps dans la bouche, très agréable.
Néanmoins il reste assez chère pour la qualité, d'autres rhums moins chère peuvent le dépasser.
I found this to be a mostly forgettable rum. I bought it along with 3 other new rums to try, and this just didn't stand out at all. Average.
Along with Barbados and Jamaica, St Lucia don't allow sugar to be added to their rums.
So all CR rums are smoothed out only by ageing.
This does mean their original is pretty harsh sipped neat, but stick an ice cube in it, or use it in a cocktail or with a mixer and it's a good step above the average
This was an afternoon supper, went down smooth and good aftertaste. I would like to try it next time on the rocks and put it in a flight of other higher rated rums
Hint of fruit, and tastes mostly of alcohol.
Colour very light amber. A little edgy when sipped neat, but taste melded will with some Coca Cola.
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.
