Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
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.
Un rhum franc sec, avec des notes douce d'alcool Mais assez tranchant.
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.
A forgotten cask due to fire in 2007. Could it be the reason why I find it smoky? Hmm just kidding.
Liquorice with coffee (vanilla coffee frappe). It does come with touch of smokiness and earthy. Fruity longan with fully ripen sweet pineapple. Chocolate bitter sweet.
Woody with dried fruits such as raisins. Fruitiness of pineapple jam and dried longan once sipped. Floral honey notes and tartness of lime which reminds me of Honeysuckle Daiquiri.
Charred wood finishing, dark chocolate with cranberry fillings. As if it been through Pedro Ximenez finishing but it doesn't last long.
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..
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.
Fin rom. Synes prisen er lidt meget i forhold til kvaliteten. Skulle den have haft 8/9 skulle den have været 100 kr billigere.
A sweet, and not too heavy flavour, with a nice smooth finish, tasty
good price, good taste, good quality.
GOOD RUM! having this in home bar will not be a mistake.
Schöne Balance mit feinen Aromen. Der ausgewogene Geschmack verwöhnt den Gaumen mit einer süßen Fruchtigkeit, gepaart mit feinen Gewürzen.
One of the most traditional products of Saint Lucia. Light on the palate, with a almond bouquet. Light dark
A lovely story behind the name forgotten Casks. But an average rum at best and a bit pricey for such averageness. A rum that you can easily share with others. Basic taste that tends to a light oaky flavour. Taste not worth paying US $40 which is what I paid when I was in st Lucia. Not in the class of Jamican..Trinidad and Barbados rums
Rich, caramelly, smooth. Nothing outstanding (especially for a St. Lucia rum), but it is very tasty.
Pas mal d arômes qui prennent la bouche, pique légèrement la langue mais le goût de l alcool reste sobre.
Rum wat lekker makkelijk weg drinkt niet te zoet beetje rokerig. Oké om dronken mee te worden
To the nose, strong alcohol and burned. Very smoked on the tongue. Mixed with Coke on a 1:4 ratio it's quite nice but still very smokey.
Expected a bit more. Not sure what I didn't like about it but wouldn't order again.
