How does this rum taste?

The Chairman’s Reserve Master is a robust rum offering a distinctive sensory journey, with dominant notes of red berries, cherries, and cassis balanced by spicy oak and gritty coffee. However, its admirably bold profile may prove a tad bitter for some palates.

“After pouring into the glass, the rum immediately takes possession of the surrounding air with thick, heavy swaths. Closer to the glass I find sour cherry, red berries and cassis. The fruit compote is accompanied by very pleasant and balanced roasted and barrel notes. Pleases me excellently. I have compared on the fly with some other St Lucia but this one is a blast on the nose! On the palate, the tannins clearly have the upper hand: lots of spice, oak, leather, salty licorice. The fruit is only subtly in the background and from the bitter category. The rum reminds me of old Armagnac on the palate. The ever-long aftertaste is clearly dominated by barrel and spice. I would have liked the fruits of the nose to reappear but so there is a certain break between nose and palate. The bitter notes, however, are not in the unpleasant range for my sensation. Regardless, an excellent, intense, powerful rum.”

“RdL vs Kirsch: Großes Kino, was hier an der Nase vom RdL ankommt: rote Früchte, Chutney, gedörrtes Obst, mentholige Noten, Tabak, Karamell. Und alles spielt wunderbar homogen zusammen. Da merkt man die lange Reifung. Der Kirsch im anderen Glas hat ein ganz anderes Profil, das war mir ohne den direkten Vergleich gar nicht so klar: der Kirsch kommt viel mehr über Gewürze wie Piment, Muskstnuss, Anis (Pfeffernuss), auch ein wenig Richtung Wurzelgemüse oder Fenchel. Am Gaumen kommt der RdL mehr über dirty Notes und verkohltes Fass. Der Kirsch ist etwas ‚sanftmütiger‘, mehr bei Gewürzen. Insgesamt hat der RdL klar die Nase vorn, auf der gleichen Stufe wie der Nectar 15th. Einziger Wermutstropfen: der krass überzogene Preis.”

“#4155 This is a really nice and heavy Chairman's Reserve. The John Doore still has some tricks up its sleeve and they're really released here. Lightly fruity with roasted wood without it being too dominant. Spicy dry palate nd very good ABV integration. Draws really nice slow moving curtains in the glass and the empty glass is really nice and I can pick up some coffee and leather as well as very light iodine.”
