Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
It's unfortunate that so many of the best-selling spiced rums taste like they've been made with pine cones and boiled diapers. (Maybe that's why they're popular). Well, Chairman's Spiced is the real thing: good rum, great spice recipe and a fine aging protocol. The result? An absolutely delicious melange which will keep you sipping far past your limit. Straight up perfection, great in cocktails as well. Not easy to find but surely worth the effort.
I noticed the cloves probably more than anything. This is probably my 2nd favorite spiced rum. It is available in the US, generally on the east coast. In PA, you usually have to order it and have it shipped to the state stores. I haven't seen it on any shelves near Philly. This is great in Painkillers if you want a spiced PK.
I love Chairman's Reserve Spiced and will always purchase a bottle when I find one. This tastes like a spiced rum with notes of cloves, cinnamon, vanilla, and more. I enjoy this as a post dinner sipper.
Now this is more like in the Spiced catagory! Lovely warm balance of spices with cloves and cinnamon leading over the typical vanilla aswell as a good amount of sweetness and citrus there too. Makes a great Toddy in the winter or another contender for the Dark N Stormy but more importantly i wouldnt say no to a double over a few ice cubes ;-)
This is a heavily spiced/flavored rum. Perhaps too much. Unfortunately one of the predominate flavors I taste is cloves.
I hate cloves.
I do also detect citrus and figgy undertones. A hint of cinnamon & nutmeg as well. Other spices and flavors that I cannot readily identify.
I honestly cannot give this more than a 4 however I clearly see the best use for this is in some mulled cider variant during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Others clearly like this more than I but I offer my opinion as is.
I'm not a spiced rum fan and this has not changed me. The cinnamon taste was far too strong for me.
An unexpected Christmas present from the wife. I commend her on her excellent choice! I might let her choose all my Spiced Rum from now on! A wonderfully smooth and rich rum. Lovely sweet taste with no sickly aftertaste. Highly recommended.
One of my favorite rums to mix with a couple ice cubes and ginger ale.

Gorgeous aromas of fig, cinnamon and vanilla, smothering the mouth with sweet cloves, burnt Orange peel and treacle flavour, this is a fantastic winter night rum beside the fire.
Lovely spiced rum, like christmas ................
Finaly I got all of Chairmans rum. I just love to have "Fuld House" for the rum I college 😊
En weekend à Ste Lucie, j'ai enfin mis la main sur ce "chairman's reserve spiced".
Présentation : basique, bouchon à vis, le rhum à une couleur ambrée.
Nez : dominante orange, cannelle, clou de girofle.
Bouche : attaque sucrée puis notes d'orange, de cannelle, de girofle, de vanille suivis d'une amertume et d'un petit goût de muscade.
Finale : très courte, petit arrière goût de cannelle.
Sympa pur, encore mieux avec du coca, un bon rhum à cocktails pour environ 11€ à Ste Lucie.
Fantastic well balanced spiced rum. Cinnamon is prominent and fruits such as orange giving it the feel of Christmas. Beautiful on its own which is how I'd normally drink it although I saw a recommendation to have with pure or a general juice which was surprisingly pleasant.
This is one of my favorite spiced runs to date. It's got a carmel overtone. Some may find the spice overwhelming ... but I think it's perfect for a rum and coke.
Very enjoyable and unique flavour. . Nice to sit and chill with a couple of glasses
Bon petit rhum épicé assez complexe et chouette à découvrir! Bonne dégustation!
Had on The rocks was a bit different.. Should have been with cola... ..
Delightful aroma, no irregularities, short aftertaste. All this together for little money is alarming.
Not as intense as my personal favorite "The Lash" but probably one most people will like better. Enough cloves and other baking spices to make it interesting, sweet enough to make it quite palatable on its own. I could be nuts but I get some cherry taste, though pleasant and not cough-syrupy like many others.
I will give this an 8. Relative just to other spiced rums it would be higher but relative to the best rums, it would be lower. So somewhere in the middle. This is not overloaded with vanilla and sweet flavours as most spiced rums are. More complex and very enjoyable as a sipper. I haven't even bothered trying to mix it. If you can get it in St. Lucia or Barbados, it's a massive bargain for the price at around $11US.
This is a very different spiced rum. The flavour is very strong when consumed straight and can become quite sickly. However, just a splash with coke and you have created a very tasty drink. Without knowing the actual fruits used, this tastes like a rum version of southern comfort. You get the touch of clove and cassia and a distinctive citrus/berry fruitiness that is really something else.
The rum has a main note of strong cinnamon. The strongest cinnamon flavor I have had on a commercial spiced rum. There is some vanilla and other spices such as clove apparent. This rum also offers a sweetness to it that the Kweyol Spice does not offer, which is a traditionally spiced rum with little sweetness, also the cinnamon is much stronger nearly overpowering. Tasted at the distillery in St. Lucia. Too much cinnamon for me to enjoy straight.
