“Complex, smoky, balanced with intense wood and mild sweetness.”

Chairman's Reserve Vintage 2009: A complex, smoky rum with strong wood and tobacco notes, balanced by hints of fruit and caramel. Slightly alcoholic and dry, it’s better after aeration. Not as good as the 2005 release.

“Overall an powerful, complex, fruity, spicy and smoky rum. Bought two bottles of this rum from Svet Nápojov in Slovakia. The brand Chairman’s Reserve from Saint Lucia Distillers (SLD) saw the day of light in 1999 under supervision of Laurie Barnard, and is today their most appreciated rum if you ask me. SLD use molasses imported from the Dom. Rep. and some sugar cane juice from sugar cane grown in Saint Lucia. They use open tanks for fermentation and four different stills, one Coffey column and three different pot stills. All their rum is tropically aged on site mostly in ex-Bourbon casks, but sometimes also in Port casks. The 2009 is their second released vintage. It’s entirely molasses based distilled in their Coffey Still and two of the pot stills (John Dore II & Vendome). Thereafter the different distillates was aged separately for 11 years in ex-Bourbon casks whereafter it was blended and married for some more weeks before bottled at ABV 46%.”
