Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
It's unfortunate that so many of the best-selling spiced rums taste like they've been made with pine cones and boiled diapers. (Maybe that's why they're popular). Well, Chairman's Spiced is the real thing: good rum, great spice recipe and a fine aging protocol. The result? An absolutely delicious melange which will keep you sipping far past your limit. Straight up perfection, great in cocktails as well. Not easy to find but surely worth the effort.
Had on The rocks was a bit different.. Should have been with cola... ..
Delightful aroma, no irregularities, short aftertaste. All this together for little money is alarming.
Not as intense as my personal favorite "The Lash" but probably one most people will like better. Enough cloves and other baking spices to make it interesting, sweet enough to make it quite palatable on its own. I could be nuts but I get some cherry taste, though pleasant and not cough-syrupy like many others.
I will give this an 8. Relative just to other spiced rums it would be higher but relative to the best rums, it would be lower. So somewhere in the middle. This is not overloaded with vanilla and sweet flavours as most spiced rums are. More complex and very enjoyable as a sipper. I haven't even bothered trying to mix it. If you can get it in St. Lucia or Barbados, it's a massive bargain for the price at around $11US.
This is a very different spiced rum. The flavour is very strong when consumed straight and can become quite sickly. However, just a splash with coke and you have created a very tasty drink. Without knowing the actual fruits used, this tastes like a rum version of southern comfort. You get the touch of clove and cassia and a distinctive citrus/berry fruitiness that is really something else.
The rum has a main note of strong cinnamon. The strongest cinnamon flavor I have had on a commercial spiced rum. There is some vanilla and other spices such as clove apparent. This rum also offers a sweetness to it that the Kweyol Spice does not offer, which is a traditionally spiced rum with little sweetness, also the cinnamon is much stronger nearly overpowering. Tasted at the distillery in St. Lucia. Too much cinnamon for me to enjoy straight.
Pretty new to drinking rum but I've tried a few different brands now and this is by far my number 1 (so far)
Was not as good as I was expecting, but very satisfying. Drank the bottle over ice and mixed with Coke. I enjoyed the vanilla and other spices. I did try the "neat" taste test and found the flavor very inviting.
The first things you notice about this rum is the colour and then the smell. A nice browny red, with a very unique and inviting smell (Like original Old Spice deodorant - In a good way). You're either going to love or hate the taste of this rum. When mixed with cola, it's smooth and light bodied and has a very unusual taste. Sort of like Dr. Pepper but lighter and simpler. Good to "mix it up" once in a while, from regular amber rums. Enjoy!
I found the spices to be well balanced and the rum is full of flavor. One of the few rums that I enjoy straight up. Hard to find a better spiced rum anywhere.
Like christmas in a bottle. Lovely ruby red colour in the bottle, and a rose gold colour in the glass. Cinnamony smell (I dont normally like cinnamon but in this case it just works) with a slight orangey/citrus scent. Sweet taste in the mouth with a warming (but not burning) aftertaste. Goes down smooth and is best drunk on its own, as a mixer would take away from the flavours. Definitely a favourite.
Le gout de cannelle y est beaucoup trop prononcé. Je n'ai pas l'impression de boire un rhum mais plutôt une liqueur de cannelle.
A real positiv suprice, sweet, maby a little to sweet at first, but after a few sip, It where ok.
Nicely spiced with cinnamon.
When I first bought a bottle of this, it tasted harsh. Skip forward a couple weeks and I try it again on the rocks with a splash of coke... fantastic!
Chairman's reserve is definitely a top notch spiced rum, mostly for his spicyness. The aroma of cinnamon and tangerine is the best you might find on the market.
Maybe a bit too "cinnamony" for me, but I have hail to the quality of this beverage.
Jeg var fornyligt til rom smagning med Masterblender Søren Beyer og som sidste rom havde han denne med, bare lugten var nok til, at jeg ikke skulle have den i munden ;-)
EN helt igennem modbydelig lugt.
rhum épicé, on sent tout de suite les agrumes (clémentine) et épices fraîches
Plutôt chaud en bouche, note d'oranges piquées aux clous de girofle. Gingembre.
Tendance à rappelé les médicaments aromatisés à l'orange
Mahonie gekleurde rum met roodachtige tinten, houdt het complex in de neus
tonen van bittere sinaasappel, nootmuskaat, kaneel en zoete rozijnen.
Zoet in de mond met exotische specerijen, nootmuskaat, vanille, kruidnagel en hints van citrusvruchten.
This is a local favorite on an island noted for locally made (homemade) spiced rum. Tasty but I prefer the regular Chairman's Reserve.
I brought back this rum from Ste-Lucia. Not crazy about spiced rum but I particularly liked this one. Not too sweet or complex, I found caramel, vanilla and cinnamon to be very present there.
Smells out surgery oranges tastes of Caribbean spice and oranges
Very smooth and great aroma but just too sweet. Very strong spicy/fruity flavours that don't work for me personally.
Spiced Rum I have ever tasted tremendous
I love this one, it´s not that many spiced rums that picks my interest but this one is really good. It got lots of flavor and quite a bit of clove, it´s good neat, in cocktails and in tiki drinks.
