Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This one should be the best of there assortment. I was to start with suspicious because the cheap screw cap and not real cork. The rum is thin and smells oaky and the flavor is instant strong with long aftertaste. The rum is becoming better when letting it breathe for a while.
I wanted more, but it is tasty. Sweet and smoky. Not sure about oaky though. Similar rums at a bit lower cost as well. Keep looking . . .
In my opinion the finest rum available.
I found his in Cubanas, Sheffield which has now become my go-to drink in my go-to bar.
I’d love to know where else in the UK serves this premium St Lucia rum.
Un bon rhum qui au nez est assez complexe. En bouche on goûte le chaîne, cassonade et la vanille. Veilli dans des barils ayant servi à faire du whisky jack Daniel, il est quand même doux. Côté qualité/prix vraiment décevant. C est un bon rhum si vous avez la chance de le payé moins cher.
Bit of a let down really. Nice colour, good aroma but I found it to be harsher on the throat than I expected. Warms you through, but for the price I feel others are definitely superior.
Read the story while you drink it, improves the taste. Then share with your friends and tell them the story. The story is better than the taste.
I wanted to like this very much as it was brought to me as a gift from the island. After ample taste tests, I found it was simply not the best for neat sipping, especially if not very cold. Many aromas and flavors at work, some overpowering, almost as a flavored rum. I found with a tiny splash of Fever Tree ginger ale or Schweppes lemon however, it made an excellent grog.
As it is, I'm not a big fan of the St Lucia Rum line; from the 1931 series to Admiral Rodney.
To me they all have a similair taste profile and it is centred around cinnamon.
Cinnamon for me is not a desired taste I enjoy in my rum and this one seems to fall in line with the others.
I actually enjoy the smell of this rum better then the taste. Although; it is pretty smooth for what seems like a juvenile rum.
Zum Glück für uns Alle wurden diese Fässer wiedergefunden !
Herrlicher Rum, in der Nase nahezu perfekt, Vanille, Karamell.....
Im Gaumen richtig vollmundig und deftig, nicht so süss, Leder, Holz, so richtig schwer.
Im Abgang schön nachhaltig, mmm und noch ein Schluck !
Fortunately for us all, these barrels were found!
Wonderful rum, almost perfect in the nose, vanilla, caramel ...
In the palate really full-bodied and hearty, not so sweet, leather, wood, really heavy.
In the finish beautifully lasting, mmm and another sip!
A bland rum that lacks flavour and distinct character, there is much better around . This is meant to be a signature by chairman's but it falls flat saddle
I had this as a Christmas gift and I really enjoyed it. surprised to see no one else has liked it as much as me. Really hit the spot for my enjoyed it straight for sipping but also with both a dash of coke and with lemonade TOP RUM
Nice and dry, with some oak and spice...but it all goes away quickly. Freud said that there are no accidents. So, maybe there was a reason they "forgot" this rum??
Spicy with floral & vegetal notes, this rum is sweet with short or medium aftertaste. Interresting history past but does not leave a long memory.
En fin sippe rom, med noter af røg.
Den er dejlig blød og rund.
En virkelig fin rom til prisen
Duft af vanilje og lidt tobak. Egentlig en rar smag med grillet banan, men tørhed og varmen trækker ned. (13. December 2019 i 1423)
In my journey through the world of rum, I have stumbled upon the name "Chairman´s Reserve" quite often without giving it a try. So it is only fitting, that my first Chairman is this "Forgotten Cask".
Nose: Vanilla, raisins and tobacco
Taste: Banana, cinnamon, walnuts, caramel and vanilla with a good aftertaste that lingers for a while
Overall: This is not a bad shout from "Chairman´s Reserve". I had heard mixed things about the regular Chairman´s Reserve, but this one is on the better end of the scale.
Simple nice tradicional rum, with vanilla and caramel.
Nose: spices and some caramel
Taste: sweet (caramel), smoky, dry and spicy
It has a medium aftertaste (spicy and strong)
It start's sweet with an end of oak.
Woul give an 7.4- 7.8
Tento rum ma zaujal a pekná chuť zodpovedala peknej vôní.
Je zmiešaný zo sudov, na ktoré sa zabudlo po požiari, ktorý vážne poškodil liehovar v roku 2007.
Náznaky sladkosti v tejto limitovanej edícii v kombinácii s drevitym,až dymovym dojazdom na mňa zapôsobili.
Nose: rich spices, some oak, some smoke and maybe even some caramel.
Palate: also spicy, warm, even slightly burning, long lasting, slightly oaky, but a little bit thin. No caramel.

There is some deep flavor to it, reminiscent of El Dorado, but the dry nature takes away from the rum in my opinion.
Nice color, nice taste. But not really more than nice
Really nice supprise. I suggest to read the story behind this rum. Nice and strong smell of wood, vanilla and honey. In taste you can really feel a lot of wood from cask with another flavours like chocolate, vanilla and some spice. It is well balanced and nicely smooth.
