Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
It seems that spiced rum's are booming at the moment and that also means a lot of spiced rum's are flooding the market.
No surprise a lot have artificial flavors and a lot basicly taste the same.
Fortunately this one stands out from the pack in a good way with it's own unique smell and taste.
I really enjoy it with a coke, but don't overmix otherwise the balance is way of.
Well balanced flavours in this spiced rum you can taste the oak as well as spice. Perfect with coke and ice and for £20 It's a steal
A fine alternative to the usual vanilla style spiced runs. On the nose, lovely notes of cinnamon, cloves and citrus which all follow through on the pallatte too.
Combination of spices really reminds me of Christmas. The dosage of cinnamon is killing the rest of the taste.
Based on my experiences with spiced rums I was pleasantly surprised. In taste was cinnamon, clove, vanilla and muscat nut. Quite good.
This Rum is the one that made me love Rum. Trully!
Real rum, real fruit, real spice. Just add ice and you have nice old fashioned.
I discovered St Lucian rums on our honeymoon...to St Lucia. We took a distillery tour and sampled all their rums. Well, I did and my bride drove! This is hands down my fav spiced rum, except for the rum I spice myself for tiki drinks!!
Spices, spices and more spices. It has a superb aroma and is smooth to drink straight, no mixer, no ice.
When delivered it did come with a bottle of ginger ale to try with it. This isnt my usual mixer but it did taste very nice and can recommend trying.
This is a good one if you have no other choices and you MUST have a Dark & Stormy. I would have it for sipping unless i had a cigar in hand and no other choice of rums.
It is pretty fruity on the nose, which made it quit appealing, but it feels like a head banger in the morning. Like I mixed it with coke (which I never do), and got a double shot of sweetness.
So its just ok, not great.
Really Heavy Burning Spice!!! Pirates only!!! If you like Heavy Spiced this is Ron right for you! I love rums that have heavy spiced aromat. This is really f*ckin heavy! Great single and with Cola/Pepsi accompaniament! Be aware! This is Huge Bomb!!!! Similar Rons: Ron The Jeremy XO, Kraken, Deadhead, Plantation Original Dark, A.H. Riise Black Barrel Spiced. With all of this Chairsman's Reserve is best!!! Dont f*uck and enjoy!!! Computer Pirates too!
This is extremely Christmassy. You can taste and smell Christmas cake in it at every moment and for some time after you've drank it. Whether this is to an individual's taste would be highly variable. It depends what your tolerance is for heavy sweetness and the unusual.
I'd say that it was good for a tipple over the Christmas period. Actually, if I'm honest, I'd sometimes prefer a really good sherry for that, but this is decent and a change.
I'm giving it a 7 rather than a 6, because I think it deserves an extra point for making a bold and memorable statement.
If you like the sweeter and spicier end of rums, I'd personally say that Dark Matter was better and more subtle as well as being more suitable away from the Festive Season - but this too is very much a debatable point according to subjective taste.
Another similarly wintery one to this is Rumbullion - but that one is a little more subtle, less complex and has a spicey-orange flavour.
Complex taste .....fruity w/ cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, vanilla, coconut, all spice, lemon and orange also has a bit of a peppery flavor . Mahogany color with reddish tinges. Complex nose of bitter orange, nutmeg, cinnamon and sweet raisin. On the palate a rich sweet mouth feel with exotic spice – nutmeg, vanilla, clove and balanced by a crisp citrus orange peel character. Not easy to find but worth it....tasty as a neat cocktail and also tasted great with some 7-up ! Highly recommend
One of the top selections in this expense category for spiced rums
First time I have tried Chairmans reserve spiced, i was suprised. It tastes exactly the same as when I make my own rum old fashioned cocktail. A bit of maple syrup, orange skin and lot of bitter.
The best spiced rum I have had. You get some sweetness and some spice / cinnamon with out it tasting artificial like some. I would bet the base spirit is more mature than most. It also does a nice job of staying balance for a spiced rum.
Fin smag og flot farve
kunne godt ha tænkt lidt mere sødme.
Another good spiced rum. Pretty strong spice level, maybe too spicy for some. But with a little ice it became a very smooth and enjoyable sipping rum. Not bad for the price.
This is a heavily spiced/flavored rum. Perhaps too much. Unfortunately one of the predominate flavors I taste is cloves.
I hate cloves.
I do also detect citrus and figgy undertones. A hint of cinnamon & nutmeg as well. Other spices and flavors that I cannot readily identify.
I honestly cannot give this more than a 4 however I clearly see the best use for this is in some mulled cider variant during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Others clearly like this more than I but I offer my opinion as is.
I'm not a spiced rum fan and this has not changed me. The cinnamon taste was far too strong for me.
An unexpected Christmas present from the wife. I commend her on her excellent choice! I might let her choose all my Spiced Rum from now on! A wonderfully smooth and rich rum. Lovely sweet taste with no sickly aftertaste. Highly recommended.
One of my favorite rums to mix with a couple ice cubes and ginger ale.
Gorgeous aromas of fig, cinnamon and vanilla, smothering the mouth with sweet cloves, burnt Orange peel and treacle flavour, this is a fantastic winter night rum beside the fire.
