The incredible St. Lucia Distillery, home of Chairman's Reserve, is the rum world's best-kept secret. This stupendous distillery is like a mini-Demarara Distillers Limited, insomuch as the distillery features a wide variety of stills and offers a huge array of different styles based on still type, substrate, fermentation times, and barrel types. To be precise, they have four stills making eight different styles of varying ester levels and cane base types. This exquisite barrel was distilled on the phenomenal Vendome still, an unusual hybrid pot-to-column that was purchased from another distillery in the early 2000s. This style is used in only incredible small quantities in the distillery's standard blends. Powerful and complex, full of deep tropical fruit, bold spice, and a unique fresh wood quality that gives it almost a bourbon character.
