    Spicy
    Chairman's Reserve Spiced Rum is a blended rum made from both column and pot distilled rums aged for 5 years in American oak with an additional 6 months after blending. To make the spiced rum, a blend of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, vanilla, coconut, allspice, lemon, and orange are used. If that’s not enough to pique your interest, it also includes Bois Bande, an herb rumored to have, shall we say, aphrodisiac effects.
