Chairman’s Spiced Rum, Saint Lucia Distillers
Chairman’s Reserve was first blended in 1999 and was overseen by the then Chairman, Laurie Barnard. A blend of column and pot distilled rums, aged for an average of 5 years in used American oak casks, with an additional 6 months aging after the rums are combined. The pot still richness comes through on the nose with sweet honeyed fruit and spicy vanilla from the oak. The palate is balanced, with a mellow but complex mix of ripe raisin fruit, tobacco and spice. The rum has a long enjoyable finish. In St. Lucia Chairman’s reserve is best enjoyed with coconut water but can be drunk neat or with a chaser of your choice.
