Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
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.
Just a pure, well made rum. No need for flavors or spices. Smooth sipping 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.
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.
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!
Nice balanced rum. Good for rum beginners and good introductions of agricole 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!!!
reviewed in error. I meant to review the Barbancourt Estate Reserve 15-Year, but I don't see how to delete a review.
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 !
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
This is tasteful agricole rhum. It's strong and flavorful, good for sipping.
I love spanish style rum in usually, but this agricole rhum is nice.
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!
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.
I used to love it many years ago, and not being able to find it for many years, had forgotten the taste. I was just now able to get a bottle. My taste must have mellowed over the years because now I find it a bit too dry, too French, too cognac-like (I prefer Spanish brandies over French cognacs). Which does not mean that I do not recognize the quality. And I will still sip it with pleasure, when in not the mood for sweeter libations!
One of my first experience of old rhum years ago
This rhum gave me the passion for old rhum
Rhum chaud en bouche, sec sans excès, très boisé et long sur la finale, des arômes de cuir, c'est un rhum animal. Groar !
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 just a good rum. I didn't note the flavors I was getting, I just made notes that it was good.
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!
Real rum taste. Nothing fancy. Not woody, not spicy nor caramel. Just simple good rum. Smooth enough. Definitely a sipper.
Un ron muy aromatico pero con quizás demasiada barrica.
This was given to me as a present. Having tried and disliked one of Barbancourt’s other series, I was skeptical about this at first.
Ginger ale at just in case it was crap. However, i was quite surprised when I tried it straight. Not over powering fire water. More refined and even a hint of deco-rum.
In the end I give it a high 7 and on the edge of an 8.
