Chairman’s Legacy is a tribute to Laurie Barnard, the “Chairman” of St. Lucia Distillers who inspired and created the iconic brand Chairman’s Reserve. His vision to define and reinvent the Saint Lucian rum category was unlike anything the rum category had seen before or has seen since. While other distilleries were purchasing column stills to increase production, Laurie was investing in eclectic barrel types, small pot stills, a proprietary yeast strain, and sugarcane. He believed that the best rum was not achieved from one barrel, but by blending different components together of different ages, finishes, styles, and base materials.
RUM BLEND: Chairman's Legacy showcases the art of blending pot and column still rums. In addition to traditional molasses-based rums, “Legacy” features the addition of sugarcane juice distillate, a trademark of Laurie since the day he grew sugarcane around the distillery to isolate the signature proprietary yeast Chairman's Reserve is so famous for.
MATURATION: Five and six year old rum is tropically aged separately by batch and still type in ex-bourbon barrels before being expertly blended.
TASTING NOTES: Mahogany hue in the glass. Pineapple, banana, and vanilla on the nose. Intense grilled tropical fruit and spice on the palate persist throughout a long wonderful finish.
