Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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 noticed the cloves probably more than anything. This is probably my 2nd favorite spiced rum. It is available in the US, generally on the east coast. In PA, you usually have to order it and have it shipped to the state stores. I haven't seen it on any shelves near Philly. This is great in Painkillers if you want a spiced PK.
Τελικά δηλώνω fan των ρουμιών που προέρχονται από St Lucia. Τουλάχιστον δε με έχουν απογοητεύσει μέχρι στιγμής. Σχεδόν πάντα ανώτερα των προσδοκιών και με μία ιδιαιτερότητα στην γεύση σε σχέση με όλες τις άλλες περιοχές.
Ένα demi sweet rum που σέβεται αυτόν που θα το πιει , καθώς και τα λεφτά που θα δώσει. 8+ από εμένα .
Not worth an 8 but gets a bump because I generally avoid spiced rums. This one, though, is really good neat and as a mixer.
Chairman's reserve spiced rum ( SaintLucia ) az anyag amit a fűszerezéshez használnak a Bois band (a Recheria grandis nevezetű fa kérge, igazi afrodiziákum a karib térségben, bois = fa, bander = erekció....fantasztikus ital, tisztán fogyasztottam ohne kóla !! :)
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.
Fantastic well balanced spiced rum. Cinnamon is prominent and fruits such as orange giving it the feel of Christmas. Beautiful on its own which is how I'd normally drink it although I saw a recommendation to have with pure or a general juice which was surprisingly pleasant.
I love Chairman's Reserve Spiced and will always purchase a bottle when I find one. This tastes like a spiced rum with notes of cloves, cinnamon, vanilla, and more. I enjoy this as a post dinner sipper.
Now this is more like in the Spiced catagory! Lovely warm balance of spices with cloves and cinnamon leading over the typical vanilla aswell as a good amount of sweetness and citrus there too. Makes a great Toddy in the winter or another contender for the Dark N Stormy but more importantly i wouldnt say no to a double over a few ice cubes ;-)
At least this isn’t overly seeetened, but it’s strong on the clove
A very smooth rum, easy to drink - very nice with ginger ale
With me not being a fan of their regular Chairman's Reserve and being put off by many of these reviews, I have held off for a long time in buying a bottle of this one. However, while looking for another bottle of K&S 18, I saw this on the shelf for only $25 and said WTF and bought it.
The aroma and taste rivals my top spiced rum, which is Brinley Gold Shipwreck Spiced. There is nothing offensive about this rum. It is a complex mix of flavors, but I get orange zest, cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper, and quite a few others that I cannot identify. It is heavily sugared as evidenced by lots of legs in the snifter. I am so glad that I took a chance on this one.
At 80 proof and having 41 gpl of added sugar, this heavily spiced rum is best used to improve drinks made with the most boring of dry rums.
Update November 13, 2019: A bit of advice! If you do like I did and drink more than 8 ounces of this rum in one night, you may also lose a couple of pounds in one day. However, you will be house bound for the next day, if you get my drift.
A déguster en digestif ou alors bien frais avec du Cola. Il fait bien son travail de spiced rhum
This is truly a fine spiced rum, plenty of depth and complexity in flavour, thick and oily in the mouth, drink it straight, don't spoil it by mixing.
This is a true spiced rum. A phenomenal smooth finish with just the right mix of vanilla, spice and nutmeg. I prefer this one ice cold on the rocks. Highly recommended!
Still very enjoyable especially with a Saxbys ginger beer and a slice of lime..
Lovely copper / mahogany colour in the glass , first aroma is cloves which im not a fan of , followed by cinnamon , vanilla etc.. tastes fine sipped neat , just a bit sweet and syrupy.
Better with ice and even better as a rum & ginger..
Doesn't compete with Rumbullion , Redleg , Untold or Cargo Cult imho.. not a re-buy but I will enjoy the rest of the bottle !
Has a strong banana and vaniila taste,a sweet and soft body and something like peach at the end.Very tasteful and appropriate if you want to drink the whole bottle.
Just awesom rum! Awesome taste. Will buy it again one more time.
The fact that this is not your ordinary spiced rum is obvious right from the initial nose. which is a bit heavy on the banana but complimented by darker spices; cinnamon, cloves, possibly nutmeg.
It pours a nice, dark amber and displays good legs in the glass.
The mouth feel is good, the rum is smooth and the spices express themselves well while held in the mouth.
Swallowing seems to intensify the flavours, leaving a very pleasing after taste with just the hint of an alcohol burning sensation.
This is not your normal, sweet, offered at the bar spiced rum. The flavours are more subtle and subdued. Plus the rum is very smooth and the exact flavours leave you guessing.
Would definitely work in some cocktails, however it is also just fine on its own.
Taste 6+/10. If you like Spiced drinks go buy it, it has also some sweetness & maybe a very little dryness. Not bad drink, i can say funny in some way.
En fortrinsvis billig rom, så man må ikke forvente for meget. Der er dog alt for meget appelsin i duft og smag. Den er helt gennemgående, så man fanger ikke så mange andre nuancer. Når man ser den flotte røde farve, tænker man om de har presset en blodappelsin. En snært af nelliker gør den meget juleagtigt.
Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Chairman's Reserve Spiced Rum bottle and label design looks pretty nice. Pure alcohol and nasty artificial flavors to the nose and palate. Strong burn at the end. Mix it up for your own sanity.
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.
