Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I really enjoyed the Chairman's Reserve Spiced rum, and so I thought I'd also really like this one. But it didn't have quite enough flavor for my taste.
Smells and tastes of oak and leather, with a small hint of spice and vanilla. A bit on the dry side as well.
It took me a while to get this one... not acquire, but grok. The dried fruits and ample sugar make it a great sipper, and it's not overpowering, like a lot of casked rums are going. I will definitely be putting this on my shelf
At first I wasn't getting much of anything but alcohol and oak from this one, but after letting it sit for a long time (like 40 minutes) i started to get vanilla, toffee, butterscotch, cherries, and peach. Could use more proof.
Had a chance to try in a local bar and have to say one of the best option for this price. True, its smell and taste is not the srongest but compared to other rums in this category absolutely a great choice.
If you are new to the "rum business" and dont want to spend too much on firts try this is a perfect option for you.
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), has more heavy, spicy and round taste. Good job mister Chairman!
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.
I was pleasantly surprised when drinking this one. Not overly sweet and has a smokiness to the flavor. Dark chocolate, toffee, and citrus notes are found on the tongue. There is a little burn on the end but not bad, let’s you know you’re drinking something. The price point wasn’t bad and I like the actual cork top.
