Chairman's Reserve Original Rum
About Chairman's Reserve Original Rum
Chairman's Reserve Original Rum is a premium aged rum that is handcrafted in Saint Lucia, an island known for producing some of the best rums in the world. This award-winning rum is a blend of double distilled pot still and continuous still rums that have been aged separately in ex-bourbon barrels for at least 5 years.
The secret to the exceptional taste of Chairman's Reserve Original Rum lies in its unique production process. The rum is blended after aging, allowing the different flavors to come together in perfect harmony. The result is a smooth and complex rum that has become a favorite among rum connoisseurs and cocktail enthusiasts alike.
Chairman's Reserve Original Rum has a rich amber color and a complex aroma of tropical fruit, vanilla, and caramel. On the palate, it is smooth and well-balanced, with notes of oak, spice, and dried fruit. The finish is long and warming, with a hint of sweetness.
The Chairman's Mai Tai is a modern twist on the classic Mai Tai that features Chairman's Reserve Original Rum. To make this cocktail, combine 2 oz. of Chairman's Reserve Original Rum, 1 oz. of orange curaçao, 3/4 oz. of lime juice, 1/2 oz. of orgeat syrup, and 1/4 oz. of simple syrup in a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a wedge of lime.
Kate Gerwin recommends Chairman’s Reserve Original Rum, aged 3–5 years in ex-bourbon barrels, for its fine quality, deep notes of caramelized fruit, and distinct St. Lucia style. But as Kate says, one of “the most unique aspect of Chairman’s Reserve, besides the fact that they don’t add additives, is that they don’t emphasize age statements—because the late ‘Chairman,’ Laurie Barnard, believed that no single barrel of rum could ever be better or as interesting as a blend of different components. Chairman’s utilizes three different pot stills of varying types and sizes and a column still, which provides lots of different charactered distillates to create their blends.”
Chairman's Reserve Original Rum is made from a blend of double distilled pot still and continuous still rums that have been aged separately for at least 5 years in ex-bourbon barrels. The rum is then blended and bottled at 40% ABV. The Chairman's Reserve distillery is located in Saint Lucia and has been producing award-winning rums since 1999.

Surprisingly good! I'd like to try their "reserve" or whatever the next step up from this is now. I hadn't had any St. Lucia rum before and this is almost a sipping-level flavor. It's not an island that you hear much about from the rum community. I like Jamaican, Barbados, Guyanese, and now St. Lucia as far as natural flavor without added sugars and flavors. (not that all rums from those places will be "undosed")
