Gold Rum Limited Edition

On May 2 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 the most unusual places.

Having done so, the cellar team had a memory lapse and forgot the casks that had been laid down for award-winning Chairman's reserve.

These casks were found recently and upon tasting were found to contain a wonderfully complex rum which has now been offered as a limited release: Chairman's Reserve - The Forgotten Casks, which has already won a gold medal and best in class at the International Wine and Spirit Competition 2011.

Well, this was a bit of a Drinkshop discovery as I have not seen it elsewhere! I do like a drop of Chairman's Reserve, and thought I would upgrade to Forgotten Casks, and am glad I did. This is quite a sweet rum, with a pleasant warmth and an almost smokey aftertaste. Unlike the previous reviewer however, I think this rum should be sipped neat to really appreciate it.

This is a well rounded, flavoursome rum. It needs nothing other than ice. I have been hooked on this since St Lucia this year and am on my 3rd bottle. I was a single malt man and have drank many, but this rum surpasses them. I would recommend this to any person who enjoys a good clean drink.
