Chairman's Reserve Spiced Rum
Chairman's Reserve // Saint Lucia
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.
Spiced RumRum that is flavored with a variety of spices, natural or artificial. They can be aged, though there is no requirement to do so.

"In the glass, the Chairman’s Reserve Spiced is a medium red amber. The nose is a mild mix of cinnamon, coconut and vanilla. Sipping initially reveals a quick initial burst of vanilla that rapidly fades to drier cinnamon and clove in the mid-palate. The finish teases, with intermingling hints of the coconut and orange peel. At 80 proof, there’s no burn to speak of. It’s hard to take just one sip of this rum – as soon it fades you’re anticipating the next sip. Spiced rums have a bad rap as overwhelmingly sweet vanilla bombs. The Chairman’s Reserve Spiced, from the well-regarded St. Lucia Distillers, is notably more refined."
