Hard to decide if it is an 8- but after only 1/3 of a bottle I’ll stop at 7+. Will definitely buy this again

Great flavors, but rather thin in the aftertaste. Good value.

A strong gold colour. The first smell is quite strong of glue, later on a little bit sweeter, some molasses, light fruity.
At last also some vanilla.
A light touch of coffee, not sweet, light bitter. The finish is medium long and slightly sharp.

Beautifully full and sweet nose with a little vanilla and wood. I could smell this one all day. The taste is nicely complex, lots of different flavours, not too sweet. Has a nice little agricole feel to it, likely not something you want to try if you're new to rum. I wish it was a bit stronger, maybe 100 proof. A longer lasting taste with some of that burn might make it a 9 or a 10.

I got a fruitiness from this one. A little more burn on the finish than I like. All and all a decent sipper I would buy again.

I was able to buy this when it had a good discount on it. I would pay that for it again, but not at the original price point. Good for a basic daiquiri.

Just tasted a sample so this is just a first impression, but I will come back to it when I have opened my 70cl bottle.

I suppose most of us have heard the story about the “Forgotten Casks”, but anyway, they forgot some barrels after the big fire 2007 and when they found them they were to aged for the “Reserve” and then they created the “Forgotten Casks” and started to go on aging barrels extra for further production of it.

It’s produced from molasses in coffey and pot stills then aged separately in ex Bourbon American oak barrels before being blended before aged in the same barrels for additional three years. The total aging is six to eleven years.
The aroma is very smooth.
In the front of the mouth it doesn’t taste very much, but when you swallow it comes and you can recognize oak, spices and vanilla.
The finish, which is rather long, you can recognize vanilla, cinnamon and raisins.
I really like Chairman’s Reserve and overall I think this is a more or less perfect everyday rum just as the “Reserve”.

- vůně jemná, nádherná, kakao, koření
- chuť opět jemná, ovocná, ale ne sladká, koření
velká paráda

This rum is right in my wheelhouse. Most of the flavours are dark and rich. It isn't sweetened and while it's only 40% abv, it doesn't feel weak or watery. It would be nice to try this at Cask Strength.

Nose: molasses, oak, roasted coffee beans, a faint hint of smoke
Palate: rich, brown sugar, raisins, figs, dark chocolate
Finish: medium length, toasted oak, espresso, raisins, caramel

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