Jeg var noget skuffet da jeg fik flasken åbnet. fin farve, let i duften og tynd i smagen.
Not much complex and bit burning during first taste, but well ballanced sweet, fruit and spice taste. Aftertaste long with oak tones.
N- An old cabinet stores with abundance of spices, herbs and tobaccos. Also burning joss stick and sandalwood. With sweeter note of banana and cherry tiramisu underlay. (86/20)
P- Robust, mint leaf with posh spiciness. Intense sourish oak of musky and moldy nuances. Oxidized notes that may not be everyone's preference, but certainly bold, authentic and nostalgic. (89/22)
F- Long, wood smokes, dry with plenty of chewy herbs.(88/22)
B/B- 87/21. Plenty of wood shouting about, but lack some filler for finesse and agility.
Weighted Rate- 85pt

Funky nose. Caramel notes with spice. Pretty smooth.
I'm more the sweet rum guy, so I am not the luckiest one with this rum. I like its smell, but for me it's not enough sweetness and a to strong taste to enjoy it very often.
Igazán érdekes rum, mind az ízvilága mind története...
Jó, hogy elfelejtették ezen rumot, de még jobb, hogy utána mégis eszükbe jutott ;)
Zajímavý rum. Pěkně voní a chutná po kouří, koření a dřevu. Nečekané silny. Závěr silnější s tóny exotického ovoce a kouře
A nice golden brown amber with a nose consisting of pineapple, burnt sugar, leather, raisins, wooden lacquer and oak. A little bit accidic in the nostrils.
Taste: medium bodied with limited sweetness and notes of bitter dark chocolate, raisins, a hint of caramel perhaps, leather and oak. Its medium tannic and a bit spicy on the finish with a tingling sensation in the cheeks. The balance and alcohol is decently integrated. It might not be a fantastic rum but snag one when it’s on sale.
I was surprised to find a twist-off for an item that is marketed as a premium rum. Dark amber color, with a nose of sherry. Slightly sweet, smooth on the tongue, with a slight backbite on the finish. Overall very nice.
I expected much more flavour and body, a bit bouring and really nothing special, may be good for a nice Cuba libre!?
I ordered this through the internet. They didn't state this rum has a screw on cap like your rack liquor does. I expected a finely aged rum for the $50. What I got was total misrepresentation period. First thing I noticed was the screw on cap. Then, I could tell by the first sip it was 90% 5yr old and 10% mixed. Complete garbage. Then I decided to search the internet and see if sugar cane is still an item in St. Lucia since this is suppose to be a product of St. Lucua. The answer, in REAL small quantities, so NO! So, where is this rum really from? Its got marketing all over it and authenticity absent. This bottle will obtain major shelf life in your liquor cabinet, trust me. Don't waste your money like I did. Go for the best bank for your $$$. ElDorado.
Very dark reddish amber. Aromas of molasses, some hazelnut and dried fruits. In mouth, vanilla, honey/caramel, leather and oak notes dominate. A tiny bit of an alcohol bite but it was fine to drink neat nonetheless - it is a fairly dry rum though. There is a short finish with mostly toasted notes. A medium-bodied rum, dry but arguably not a biting bone-dry flavour because of how it's evenly balanced. I found it quite nice.
All in all, I would settle for somewhere around 7.5/10, which I'll settle on 8/10 for now as I do not find it much worse than many highly rated sweeter rums.
Pretty dark Rum. Dannemara molasse comes out at 1st sniff. I found a rich and caramely taste. Great rum at that price tag
An interesting rum, quite harsh to start with but it smooths out. To my taste buds, it's actually not better than the standard Chairman's Reserve - I wouldn't buy this for 70%+ more in terms of price.
What does it taste like? Imagine a marriage of Chairman's Reserve and Mount Gay Black Barrel and you are not far off - this certainly has more of an oaky, charred bourbon taste than the original, but it's not quite as sweet and round in the middle.
It has a good oaky nose and a very strong oaky, smokey-bourbon like finish, but in the mouth, I prefer the standard Chairman's Reserve.
Did expect more to be honest...smells better than it tastes..
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 . . .
Good british style rum.
Taste is mostly influenced by wooden character of casks with hints of vanilla.
A fantastic rum the best I’ve had yet with a smooth taste that is quick to distinguish itself from the rest of the shelf I’d highly recommend this to anyone.
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.
Very nice label, bland bottle and a screw cap sets the stage for Chairman's Reserve Forgotten Casks. Color is nice semi deep, smell is quite alcoholic, taste is not bad, but very bland. Trying to the cheaper version of the Chairman's Reserve next.
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.
Fin rom. Synes prisen er lidt meget i forhold til kvaliteten. Skulle den have haft 8/9 skulle den have været 100 kr billigere.
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.
