A smooth and not too complex rum from St. Lucia and it will not leave you disappointed.

The older brother of Chairman's Reserve Finest, nose is real beauty, sweet fruity tones, mixed with charred barrel, toffee and a waft of elderberry, on the palate there is oak, chocolate, spices, all deep and pleasant, with a bit of sweetness, but without added sugar. The aftertaste is long and spicy, turning towards bitter, with a bit of an pleasing alcohol prickle. The overall taste profile is smooth, almost oily, first glass from the bottle seems a bit one dimensional, but the taste develops nicely after a few glasses. My feeling is similar I get with Doorly's - this one is indeed a pleasing and honest rum without additives. Compared with Doorly's 8y - this one has a bit less elaborated nose (Doorly is exceptional indeed) and more spicy body. Good job mister Chairman!

God rom som saknar det lilla extra men slinker ner snabbt.

Tento rum som si vybral na základe dobrých recenzií a neklamali. Vôna naozaj nádherná - pre mňa zatial TOP! Vanilka, drevo, med, tabak, dym, jemne ovocie. Chuť - drevo, vanilka, ovocie, horká čokoláda, korenie. Príjemne popŕhli na jazyku a zahreje - tipol by som viac ako 40 percent. Priaznivá cena! Celkové hodnotenie 9,5!

Bought this while travelling on advice of a great shop with loads of rum’s. In first instance I wasn’t convinced but the more I drank it the better it got. Now I want to buy it again.

Accidentally aged version of Chairmans Reserve? Good marketing. Chairman’s Reserve is 3 to 5 years, this one must be around 8 year. It's a blend of coffey- and pot still. I would expect some dirty and dark aromas. We have a dilution here to 40% and a colum still distillation.

The dilution is too high. The taste is not watery, but also not rich. The taste is bright with some agricole flavors like fermented fruits. Further vanilla, some sweetness like sugar cane, floral notes, wood and some fermented citrus fruits.
The finish is not very spicy because of the dilution.

No heavy or darker flavors there. That's sad because I'm a fan of the Chairmans Reserve Master Select pot still rum. It's a type of rum that can compete with Caroni.
This one is far behind. Therefrore I would rate it 65 points.

Smell: vanilla, fermented citrus fruits, floral notes, wood, some sweetness
Taste: vanilla, spice, fermented citrus fruits, tanins, barrel/earth, floral notes

Sweetness: 2/5
Fruit: 1.5/5
Spice: 2.5/5
Mildness: 3/5
Value (38€): 2/5

This is excellent rum! Far better than the 6.9 aggregate score as of my review. This has a ton of body, Thick, chewy and smooth. Not sweet at all. Lots of oak, molasses, sultana black currant and even some faint fig notes. Long, mellow and satisfying finish. Great value too at $40. Another superb rum from a GREAT distillery.

It’s a nice sipper with no much of a personality, nothing that stands out. Sweet with a medium finish.

The rum is a nice amber colour. It has a decent amount of body. On the nose are a lot of molasses and brown sugar, a hint of vanilla and a hit of alcohol. On the tongue is some continued brown sugar, a greater dose of alcohol and some baking spices. It’s quite dry for a rum that has sugary notes. Not a lot of burn for something with a pronounced alcohol nose and flavour. Decent rum, but nothing particularly notable about it.

This is none-sweetened rum which tastes less sweet than many other rums.
Somewhat oak, somewhat minty in the very short finish
