Chairman’s Reserve Spiced Rum is the latest addition to St. Lucia Distiller’s portfolio of world class rums. The rum contains local spices and fruits including cinnamon, love, nutmeg, vanilla, coconut, all spice, lemon and orange. We have also added Richeria Grandis – known locally as “Bois Bande" – a bark renowned in the Caribbean as a potent aphrodisiac to give an added kick to the rum.
These spices and fruits are added to rums distilled in copper alembic pot and continuous stills that are then aged in Kentucky Bourbon barrels to give a complex and balanced spice rum. We have found Chairman’s Reserve Spice benefits from a combination of steeping certain spices and Bois Bande in the rum for up to a year while the other ingredients are added during the blending process. In this way we can bring out the flavour of the spices and fruits while preserving the complexity and harmony of the underlying rum.
Colour: Deep mahogany colour with reddish tinges.
Aroma: Beautifully complex nose of bitter orange, nutmeg, cinnamon and sweet raisin.
Palate: On the palate a rich sweet mouth feel with exotic spice – nutmeg, vanilla, clove and balanced by a crisp citrus orange peel character. A hedonistic but complex spice rum.
Suggested Mixer: Chairman’s Reserve Spiced Rum is best enjoyed with cranberry juice or ginger beer on ice with a grating of fresh nutmeg.
