At first I had to double check the percentage as I thought I might have bought an overproof rum by mistake. It's a fairly standard 40% but tastes much stronger.
The label claims notes of vanilla and tobacco, but I feel like I missed the vanilla entirely and the tobacco was somewhat overpowered by the general petrol-like qualities of it
Will be drinking the rest of the bottle in cocktails to disguise what is a rum that is frankly, not to my taste at all.
Most people wants to find rum with good value for money. Well, here it is. It’s very hard to find anything better for this amount of money. The only one I found is the English Harbour 5yo.
It’s a blend of separately aged rums in ex-Bourbon barrels distilled from Coffey and pot stills. After blended it’s aged for six months more in oak vats. The average age of the blend is 5 years.
The aromas is rich and spicy. I recognize banana, fruits, oak and vanilla.
In mouth and on the palate there are tastes of chocolate, raisin, tobacco and clove which’s still there during the quite long finish.
There’s really something special with its flavours and nice afterburn.
After what I have heard it’s the most consumed rum in St. Lucia. So it can’t be more karibik. This is a very good everyday rum to a very low price.
Picture: My opened bottle with poured glasses and my little Chairman’s shelf in the background.
Lively on the tongue with just enough honey and vanilla to calm the palate. Raisins linger on the nose which is as nice as it is pretentious 😎
On the lower end of Chairman’s reserve offering some of which are excellent. This is a well rum for mixing, don’t try to drink it straight.
Good rum. Little bit of sweetness to it. And little bit of harshness and burn but not overly so especially when on the rocks. Just no character or complexity to it. Back of the bottle says "...an award winning handcrafted blend...blah blah blah" Not sure what awards it won but maybe they were all local awards in St. Lucia. There is nothing that stands out at all with this rum. I can rattle off a 1\2 dozen cheaper rums that are better - not A LOT better but, better than this with more flavor and character.
for price point good with lemonade I personally think but also good on its own but not many rums better in this price range
On the nose is light, smokey and also has some banana. In the mouth you catch almost the same fruity flavours with oak and a little burning at the end, but it's not so strong and long finish, so you can drink neat if that's what you like it. Old fashioned is great with this one. At this price range is very hard to beat it and could be very easy your everyday rum.
I'm pretty new to rum world but I fell in love with this one. Great aroma and taste. Absolutly best for it's price.
Try to get a well lit shot from the front of the rum label
