    Distiller Notes

    On May 2, 2007 St. Lucia Distillers was struck by a major fire; most of the distillery was spared but much of their storage space for aging casks was lost. In the melee that followed, their cellar master, Mr. Cyril Mangal, was forced to find space for ageing casks in the most unusual places. Some of these were apparently tucked away and forgotten about, only to be recently rediscovered – and now offered as a limited release.

    A blend of Coffey (column) and pot stills, the rum is a blend of juice aged from 7 – 10 years in used American oak barrels. Individual "forgotten" casks (aged 2-5) were blended together and aged as a blend for an additional 5 years to create the final product. Wonderfully intense nose of sweet raisin, sultana and hints of tobacco and vanilla from the oak. Intense palate with sweet honeyed fruit and spices giving a wonderfully complex rum.

    Proof: 80

    Tasting Panel
    An extra-aged version of Chairman’s Reserve, aged up to 10 years. Stunning deep orangeamber-tea color with an assertive nose of dried figs and dates and toasted wheat bread spread with orange marmalade. The flavors combine a brine as well as honeyed oak with an Armagnac character throughout. A fine astringency hits mid-palate—with a walnut dryness and a caramel candied note. The finish combines Pekoe tea, tannin and a graceful spice.

    Chairman's Reserve, Caribbean
    Chairman's Reserve Winery Image

    Sugarcane arrived in St. Lucia in the 18th Century, and its molasses byproduct continued the growth of the Caribbean’s thriving rum trade. By the 1950s however, most Caribbean rum producing islands had slowed their pace, and St Lucia was no exception – only two producers remained in Dennery and Roseau. Soon the two joined forces under the Barnard family banner of the St. Lucia Distillers Group. The operating distillery now remains in Roseau. Featuring extensive environmental initiatives, Chairman’s Reserve distills outstanding rums in a St. Lucia style using molasses sourced primarily from Guyana, after a 24-30 hour closed fermentation period.

    Often referred to as a Gold Rum, an Aged Rum is one that has been aged in barrels, often Ex-Bourbon or White Oak before bottling. As the Rum continues to age, it draws more and more color and flavor from the wood, adding both body and complexity to the finished product. Aged Rums can be sipped neat or added to cocktails. They fall somewhere in between White and Dark Rums in terms of their respective strength of flavor.
