Chairman‘s Reserve Master's Selection (German Edition) 2005 15yr 59,3%

RX11467 Very good Pot Still Rum Single Cask 251 bottles Under 250€
“A rich, complex rum with spicy, fruity, and woody notes.”

The Chairman's Reserve Master's Selection (German Edition) is a distinctive rum from Saint Lucia Distillers, made using molasses and pot still distillation in 2005 before maturing for 15 years. Bottled at cask strength with 59.3% ABV, this release is limited to just 251 bottles. With a sensory profile that includes black tea, leather, tobacco, oak, caramel, spicy, lemon, chili, and menthol notes, this unique expression has received praise for its complexity and balance of flavors. Its distinct St. Lucia character entices the palate with a strong presence of dark, woody notes and hints of bourbon cask influence. Though some users found the alcohol integration less than ideal, this rum is widely appreciated for its robust and engaging profile.

A robust and complex St. Lucia delight with bold notes of fruit, spice, and wood, balanced by a hint of mint and smoky undertones. Requires breathing time to tame the strong, yet engaging profile. A distinctive, darkly dirty gem.

“The bourbon barrels come out clearly. A bit spicy, but a very good St. Lucia. 👍”

“Tasted in direct comparison with the RumX bottling. The first thing that stands out is that the German Edition is much more immature compared to the RumX. Lemon and green apple instead of ripe tropical fruit. Wood and spice are much more restrained. The somewhat lighter color also speaks for a weaker barrel influence. The nose is nevertheless pleasing. In the mouth, the acidity is once again very present, and the alcohol is much more unpleasant than in the RumX. That is to become really annoying at the edge. Behind that is then the herbal side plays up big: Green peppers, chili, black tea. The finish continues to be sour and astringent without much new facet. The nose is really nice, but this comparison unfortunately shows a class difference.”
