sehr geiler st Lucia und unglaublich ausgewogen! gefällt mir sehr gut! vor allem diese frische Ananas-Minze Note, Karamellisierte Kokoschips, leichte Säure Hintenraus nach roten Beeren und dezent Nougat, Toffee und Piment und diversen Zitrusfrüchten💣 super lecker, für mich meine absolute Trinkstärke Referenz bei st Lucia!🙏🇱🇨

Ein genialer Alltagsrum, mit viel Frucht und Schokolade. Etwas Karamell, Toast und Gewürze gibt es dazu, was das Ganze abrundet. Einige Gemeinsamkeiten gibt es mit Barbados und Guyana. Sehr lecker, trifft genau meinen Geschmack! Im Mund könnte es noch ein bisschen besser sein, aber die Nase ist genial! Ich bin mir nicht sicher, ob man diesen Rum noch bekommt, aber der Preis war damals sehr gut.

Leicht rauchige Vanille-Ananas Aromen. Wieder mal ein typischer Vertreter der „passt gut zu dunkler Schokolade“ Kategorie.

Sehr lecker, lediglich der Alkohol könnte trotz nur 46% etwas besser versteckt sein. Bittere Schokolade im Geschmacksprofil ist sehr lecker und gemischt mit leichter Fruchtnote. Trotz der erwähnten 46% geschmacklich ziemlich intensiv, was ich sehr toll finde. Ist seinen Preis von 65€ (Stand 2.2.22) definitiv wert, würde mir aber wünschen er wäre ungefärbt.

Überraschend zugänglich in der Nase mit viel vanilliger Süsse vom Eichenholz. Am Gaumen trifft diese auf Gewürze und tropische Früchte. Schöne Melange und ein easy going Sipper.

Quelle agréable surprise que ce chairman 2005. Très bon rum, gourmand et pâtissier. Il se rapproche plus d'un foursquare 2007 que d'autres chairmans nettement plus métalliques et fruités. Quand on pense à son prix, c'est juste un excellent produit plaisir !

Nez très doux/rond. fruité et sucré ça à l'air bien gourmand tout ça ! Bouche effectivement très gourmande ! C'est léger mais très bon. Du pruneau vanillé au cacao boisé. Une douceur du soir !! Un vrai bonbon.

It’s a good balanced rum but not particularly memorable. The nose is light foursquare in style and the mix of John Dore pot still and Coffey column still distillate comes through. The nose is vanilla, brown sugar and light, mouth more intense, some oak, mint and herbs, and spices, a mix of pepper and clove. On the finish it is oak forward but not overbearing. Easy enough sipper and a well crafted rum but not one I would come back to and many better from SLD
