Dark golden amber in colour. The bouquet is warm and intense. The signature tobacco aroma is here along with raw cocoa nibs, Earl Grey tea, pink grapefruit, damp cardboard and ground nutmeg. Ripe pears, cinnamon, passion fruit, mango and overripe bananas, some caramel, old leather maple syrup and allspice. The palate is wood forward and nutty. Delicious tobacco, Thai basil, pencil shavings, raisins and overripe bananas notes are evident. New furniture, old leather and oak spices. There’s a herbal/minty layer throughout. Pink pepper, juniper, coriander, pink grapefruit, marmalade, charred wood and a touch of wasabi. The finish is long with tobacco, ginger and salted caramel notes.

Produced by St. Lucia Distillers, Chairman’s Reserve was established in 1999 by second-generation managing director Laurie Barnard as the preeminent Saint Lucian rum, an ode to the iconic style developed by the Barnard family. When many in the rum industry were focused on making the liquor more profitable with less character, Laurie Barnard sought more character in his products. He believed the best rum is achieved by blending different components together of ages, finishes, styles, and base materials. To create Chairman’s Reserve, he experimented with blending respective casks of pot still rum and column still rum. By returning the blended rum back into oak barrels for additional aging, Barnard created a soft, well-balanced, and flavourful spirit that has become the benchmark for St. Lucian rum.
