DETAILS preparation: May 2, 2007, a great fire devastated the distillery St. Lucia Distillers, destroying much of the storage buildings. The result of this was that the distillers had to find new places for their storage barrels, in all kinds of places. They forgot the location of some of the barrels, only to find them recently, and found that the rum they found was sublime.

4 /5

- 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.

TASTING NOTES:
- View: Amber with beautiful golden hues and caramel.
- Aroma powerful raisins, vanilla and cigar invading. An ideal marriage.
- Palate: intense and complex flavor. A balanced blend of sweet spices, honey and tropical fruits. The finish is deep and structured. A delight.

PRODUCTION: The story of this rum is special. Distillery St. Lucia in the Caribbean, suffered a devastating fire in 2007. It was necessary to rehabilitate the entire distillery. The drums of the Chairmans Reserve the Forgotten barrels placed in a corner and forgotten. Hence the term "forgotten Barriles." They were found a few years later and now can sample containing rum.
COUNTRY: Saint Lucia

DEVELOPMENT: The development of this rum is, as its history, very unique. It is a blend of several rums between 7 and 12 years old. Aging is done in American oak barrels that previously contained Jack Daniels Bourbon, Jim Beam and Buffalo Trace. Final assembly itself is aged for 5 years. These various stages not only ensure exquisite but also rum and high quality.
