Chairman's Reserve Rum The Forgotten Casks 750ml
On May 2nd, 2007 St. Lucia Distillers was struck by a major fire which destroyed our administration and blending facility. Mercifully most of our distillery was spared but suffered great problems with storage space for the casks. In the melee that followed the cellar master, Mr. Cyril Mangal, was forced to find space for ageing casks in the most unusual places. Having done so the cellar team had a memory lapse and forgot the casks that had been laid down for the award winning rum Chairman’s Reserve. These casks were discovered recently and upon tasting were found to contain a wonderfully complex rum which is not offered as a limited release.
Rich dark gold mahogany color. Wonderfully intense nose of sweet raison, sultana and hits of tobacco and vanilla from the oak. On the palate intense with sweet honeyed fruit and spices giving a wonderfully balanced and complex rum.
