It's the very first vintage release from Chairman's Reserve! This 2005 vintage is a blend of two rums from St Lucia Distillers, from both the John Dore pot still and a coffey column still. The spirits were aged separately for four years before they were vatted together and aged for another 10 years.
Nose: Treacle, spice fruit compote, vanilla ice cream and fried dough.
Palate: Dried apricot and rum-soaked sultanas, a hint of sherry vinegar brightness, cigar box and mature oak.
Finish: A slow build of black pepper and clove, underneath layers of caramel.
