Chairman’s Spiced Rum begins with the original Chairman’s Reserve steeped with bois bandé, a local Caribbean bark culturally known for its aphrodisiac qualities. Added to the rum are local spices and fruits such as cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, vanilla, allspice, lemon and orange peels.
Stills: This rum is a blend of Coffey and pot still rums.
Aging: Chairman's Spiced Rum is aged separately by batch and by type of still in ex-Bourbon barrels, then blended and rested in oak vats for an additional six months. Local fruits and spices are added over the final six months of finishing.
Tasting Notes: Beautifully complex nose of bitter orange, nutmeg, cinnamon and sweet raisin. On the palate, this rum shows a rich, sweet mouthfeel with exotic spice balanced by a crisp citrus character. Very complex.
"This might be the best spiced rum yet to come on the market...I'd never been a fan of spiced rums, such as Captain Morgan or Sailor Jerry, but Chairman's Reserve was subtle and delicious. It has changed my opinion." - Jason Wilson, Washington Post
"Rum used to be either Harsh & White or Harsh & Spiced. But these days, hard-core mixologists are making tiki drinks, and you can pick up sugarcane juice as complex and delicious as a single malt for much less cash. It's time to get to know your rums. Chairman's Reserve Spiced Rum is infused with a blend of bitter orange, clove and nutmeg that changed our mind about spiced rum." - Stan Parish, GQ Magazine
