Aged: No age statement
Product of: Saint Lucia
This spiced rum is based on the same blend of pot and column still rums as the original Chairman's Reserve Rum but is infused with Caribbean spices including cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, vanilla, coconut, allspice, lemon and orange as well as an extract of the bark of the Richeria Grandis tree.
Richeria Grandis is known locally as Bois Bandé, which literally translates from French as 'stretched wood' - let's just say that in St Lucia the men take this instead of Viagra, to the extent that it is now hard to find any of these trees left growing on the island.
