Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
A lot of people seem to not really like agricoles, and I can sort of understand why- they’re much lighter and a lot more floral. This has all of that, but a lot of interest and deliciousness, presumably because of the ageing. Would absolutely recommend.
este es un ron que vale la pena probar, se toma en las rocas y su sabor es excepcional
Strong but still smooth, well-balanced, not sweet (what is a big plus). Great for sipping neat or with just one cube of ice.
reviewed in error. I meant to review the Barbancourt Estate Reserve 15-Year, but I don't see how to delete a review.
an extremely great rum in my view, even though the bottle and bottle cap appear somewhat ordinary; but when you take a first smell you know immediately that this is a very intensive rum; flavour is very complex and the first taste gives my always the feeling that a complex wave of flavours (candied citrus fruits) is rolling through my mouth; some guests have described that taste as too heavy from their perspective; the aftertaste is very long; extremely good rum especially if you are not looking just for some kind of sweet smooth dessert rum
Color : light brown to dark
Flavour : Elegant, nutty with some spice, honey finish
Palate : Dry, slightly harsh, richness of flavour
A trully great rum, it's dryness doesn't make it easy for rookies to apreciate it!!!
My first Haitian rum, very good taste. Using the same Charentaise distillery method like Cognac, fruity flavor with cinnamon and the finish is long. Good one !
Just a pure, well made rum. No need for flavors or spices. Smooth sipping rum.
Rum secco e deciso! Si sente decisamente la presenza della canna da zucchero. Ottimo liscio, interessante anche con ghiaccio e una scorzetta di limone. Uno dei miei preferiti.
Nice balanced rum. Good for rum beginners and good introductions of agricole rum.
I love Dominican rums. The smooth caramel flavors, often dancing about with flavors of wood, vanilla, chocolate and/or coffee, with a certain earthy/nuttiness underneath. Good aged Dominicans. Nothing like 'em! Except this, oddly enough; this little rum sneaking up on me out of Haiti! Turns out, this rum captures almost everything from my favorite region, and then adds a little something to it. Maybe it's bubblegum, maybe it's a more rounded woodiness, or maybe I'm way off! I don't really know, and I'm ok with that, because I know what matters: this is a lovely rum!
Without paying over $100 a bottle, this is always consistent with a fabulous flavor, smoothness, nose, etc, Well balanced. I have owned easily over 150 rums and this always comes out on top.
Re-tasted last weekend and ranked second in my flight of 5. Much less burn than the last time I tasted. Clean and smooth with traces of cognac cask.
Hyper équilibré et maitrisé, un rhum vraiment efficace. Les notes classiques d'un bon rhum agricole sans excès. Une longueur tout en subtilité avec quelques épices pour finir. Haitianer Qualitat.
This is a special and great agricole rum, different from the rest. Has some spiciness and nuttiness to it. Makes good punch vieux and other cocktails as well as sips fine. It´s a rich rum.
Dark amber, bright, dark caramel. Cinnamon spice.
The rum tastes nice and strong. There's some caramel, sweet fruit and roast in the taste. Water doesn't seem to open up the taste.
This 15 years old Barbancourt agricole rum is one of my favourite haitian rums! It's strong but very tasty with a strong spiced and oak taste!
Un ron muy aromatico pero con quizás demasiada barrica.
Very good rum, not overly sweet, not overly harsh. Very good to sip and enjoy the taste of Haiti. Well balanced in my opinion.
Im very impressed how good this rum was sure is worth a try
Light Amber with very thin legs that fall immediately. Lots of alcohol on the nose with notes of dried fruit and vanilla. Taste is of raisins and spices leading into a heavy alcohol finish that quickly fades leaving you with a dry sweetness across the palate.
A nice taste of Haiti, albeit, a pricy one at that. This rum will set you back about $50 US, however, it provides a nice representation of a fine French Agricole rhum. Complexity, smoothness and earthy characteristics usually associated with agricole rhum, due to being distilled from pressed/squeezed fresh cane juice, play out favorably with this rhum.
Very nice sipper that should be avoided as used for mixing with the high price tag associated with it. Definitely the best of the Barbancort line!
