On May 2nd 2007 St. Lucia Distillers was struck by a major fire. Mercifully most of the distillery was spared but there were great problems with storage, forcing them to find space for ageing casks in unusual places. Having done so, the cellar team had a memory lapse and forgot some of the casks that had been laid down for the award-winning Chairman’s Reserve. Three casks were discovered four years later and were found to contain a wonderfully complex rum – now offered as this limited release.
A gold medal winning blend of double distilled pot still and column still rums, usually aged for up to 5 years in Bourbon barrels. Rich dark gold / mahogany colour. Intense nose of sweet raisin, sultana, tobacco and vanilla pod. Sweet, honeyed and spicy on the palate with a complex finish.
