Since we're still in this pandemic, I won't be able to celebrate my birthday with my brothers in arms like I have in the past. Well I'll still make the best of it. I decided enjoy a different, unique spirit the week leading up to my born day. I was hoping to pair the selected spirit with a different stogie, but can't do that today. Anyway the first bottle I'm opening is Chairman's Reserve Single Cask Rum (135 proof) 21 years old, from Saint Lucía. The first sip was like sipping hot molasses, honey, leather, tobacco, and just a little smoky. I will have to pair this with a strong spicy stogie!!! I added a few drops of filtered water and it makes a huge difference. More flavors, and a really good sipping rum. Hard to believe straight at 135 proof it didn't skin my mouth. Highly recommend!!!
