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.
It's definitely a good rum to drink pure, but after an initial good taste it just... Stops. Not sure how to describe it. It's still an excellent choice
Reçu en cadeau ...
Bien content de ne pas avoir dépensé un dollar sur ce produit médiocre.
De l'alcool à friction avec une étiquette de Rhum.
Mettre dans les cocktails, quand vois voulez que la visite quitte !
Initial aroma very pleasant with a full range of spices apparent from the off. first taste was a little disappointing however after being left in the glass for 5 min the drink seemed to relax and gave a fuller flavour and certainly went down a lot smoother. Too nice to be used as a mixer and not nice enough to be a show piece but very drinkable.
Everything is good: there is a flavor, the taste of the original, alcohol content in moderation. But this is - not a model to be copied.
A dry smokey tasting rum with subtle flavours, easy sip straight, goes down easy
Too harsh too drink straight, decent enough when mixed with coke.
Nothing special, but enjoyable enough.
This one I've been putting off for a while because it's one of the few rums that is pretty much on the shelf at about every local liquor store. Sometimes placed within the Capt. Morgan/Bacardi/Malibu/Cruzan shelves which isn't a good thing IMHO. Made me hesitate getting a bottle for quite some time.
But, it finally came time to try some...
It does have an appealing rich amber color and its aroma is very nice. A little caramel...a little ethanol. Not bad.
Sipping it reveals a bit of sweetness with flavors of vanilla and the oak in which it was aged. A little too much oak for sipping. Has just a tad too much bitterness for my tastes in sipping rums. The finish is somewhat dry so it appears this is a rum best suited for mixing especially in fruit-based drinks where the sweetness would balance out the bitterness from the oak.
Potentially this would be even better rum if allowed to age for 5-7 more years. That's the missed potential.
Not a terrible rum but one I would pass on if several certain other brands are available.
Right sweetness but some harshness. Taste of mainly smokey oak, some dried fruit.

En rom med tydelige noter af røg.
Den er forbavsende blød i munden, men ikke et genkøb.
Plus intéressant que les rhums qui sont de tout début d'entrée de gamme, sans grande aspérité, sans grand intérêt non plus. Alcool trop présent au nez, en déséquilibre, brûlant en bouche. OK dans l'ensemble.
Surprisingly smooth for a 3-4 years old. Not very sweet and perhaps not the most complex. I would love to drink a premium aged version of this one. Good value anyways.
It's a new experience,reminding me on Trinidad rums and a bit of heavy Demerara style rums. Excellent,fruity in the nose but wields a punch of a whisky or cognac,not sweet at all. A real rum and a probably tricky at a blind-tasting if you have to guess where it's from. Worth of a try
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.
