Spicy with floral & vegetal notes, this rum is sweet with short or medium aftertaste. Interresting history past but does not leave a long memory.

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

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!

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!

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

Light, dry, good nose and fine taste. Not as good as 1931, but not bad at all.

A harsh, sharp and intense rum. Barely drinkable on the rocks. Expected more.

This rum is delish with coke. Gives it a nice cinnamon spice flavor.
Sipping it neat it's a nice spicy cinnamon rush with a little heat and great aftertaste of molasses and a hint of nutmeg.
Good one for the collection

Bon rhum de dégustation avec de belle flaveur. Dispendieux pour boire avec du 7up ou du Coke.

very complex rum, with an extremely strong fruity note up front, leading into some pot still heaviness, ending with a ton of vanilla. Great rum.
