Chairman’s Reserve
1931 Rum

Category: Rum (Aged more than 3 Years)

Date Tasted:
Country: St. Lucia
Alcohol: 46%
Golden amber color. Aromas of brown butter, mulling spices, bay, and copper pot with a round, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a peppery, complex, very long charred banana leaf, strawberry, lychee, soy-glazed nuts, and tobacco finish. A hypnotic, pairable rum packed with layers of graceful agricole-like flavors topped off with notes of East Asian fruit on the finish; will be stupendous in cocktails and also deserving of a slow sipping session.

Rum Aged more than 3 Years

Añejo and Age-Dated Rums are aged Rums from different vintages or batches that are mixed together to insure a continuity of flavor in brands of Rum from year to year. Some aged Rums will give age statements stating the youngest Rum in the blend (e.g., 10-year-old Rum contains a blend of Rums that are at least 10 years old). A small number of French island Rums are Vintage Dated.
