This Chairman's Reserve Masters Selection was bottled for Rum Artesanal and Rum Tasting Notes. The rum from Saint Lucia was made 2011 in pot style. It is a blend of John Dore and Vendome style. After 9 years in an Ex Bourbon barrel, the rum was bottled in cask strength of 59.8% alcohol without filtration, dyes or sugar. There are 261 bottles of the Single Cask.
The nose is very strong and spicy. Pepper pairs with peach and mint. Some glue is included. Palatable fruit notes with a little leather and some smoke. A great nose. On the palate, the interplay of spice and fruit is repeated. It comes pepper, tropical fruit, some mint and smoke. Tannins and wood become more present in the finish. The rum is intense and the alcohol warms up neatly. The finish is pleasantly long with herbs, smoke and an earthy note. All this comes dry and very directly.
A great rum if you like it dry and spicy. The nose is even a bit more exciting for me. The herbs and mint are great, the pepper maybe a little too present. A very successful Chairman's bottling.

Von dem Single Cask gibt es 261 Flaschen.
Die Nase ist sehr kräftig und würzig. Pfeffer paar sich mit Pfirsich und Minze. Etwas Klebstoff ist dabei. Süffige Fruchtnoten mit etwas Leder und noch weniger Rauch. Eine tolle Nase. Am Gaumen wiederholt sich das Wechselspiel von Würze und Frucht. Es kommt Pfeffer, tropische Frucht, etwas Minze und Rauch. Tannine und Holz werden präsenter im Abgang. Der Rum ist intensiv und der Alkohol wärmt ordentlich. Der Abgang ist angenehm lang mit Kräutern, Rauch und einer erdigen Note. Das alles kommt trocken sehr direkt.
Ein toller Rum, wenn man es trocken und würzig mag. Die Nase ist dabei für mich etwas spannender. Die Kräuter und Minze sind super, der Pfeffer vielleicht etwas zu präsent. Eine sehr gelungener Chairman's Abfüllung.

NR: More a Fiji rum than a Chairmans, good stuff 9 out of 10
Chairman's Reserve Master's Selection for RA 2011
This is a nine year old rum from 2011 bottled with 59.8%. It was matured in bourbon barrels and bottled in 261 bottles. Distilled in the John Dore No. 1 and the Vendome pot still. We already know the dirty aromas from the Vendome pot still, let's see which aromas the John Dore still 1 adds.
Smell: The RA Chairman's has a huge Fiji touch. In a blind tasting, I would have located the rum immediately in Fiji. I smell honey, fermented vegetables, bright and at the same time salted fruits like melon. It is quite sharp on the nose and should breath a little longer in the glass.
Peppery notes are also not neglected, some light oak and vanilla are behind. It's got the balance between sweet and salty flavors. A very interesting barrel that RA chose. As a Fiji lover, I like it very much.
Taste: soft, slightly sweet / salty and also a little oily start. There are bright, salted fruits, such as melon and pear. The rum develops oily. The tannins appear with bitter notes and the olives appear together with the leather. The rum still holds the balance between salty and sweet notes.
Then peppery notes develop and the rum becomes spicier. The finish is a bit spicy, quite dry with oak, slightly salty notes and some tannins.
Aftertaste: salty fruits, oily notes and leather, tobacco
Conclusion: The rum has a heavy Fiji flavor that I didn't know in the form of Chairman's Reserve. If that were a Fiji rum, it would even be a very good one. I like how the rum keeps the balance between the salty and sweet notes. It didn’t correspond to what I expected, but the surprise was very successful. If you like this rum, you are welcome to look for more Fiji rums.
