Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Im very impressed how good this rum was sure is worth a try
A lot of alcohol on the nose and in the immediate flavor. This comes with its corresponding dose of burn, which you do not find in 15-year rums very often.
It is after the harshness of the initial burn and alcohol flavor is gone that you begin to notice other flavor(s).
The basic (secondary) flavors are nut, wood, and leather, all in a dry version. It is best drunk straight or on the rocks. Some mineral water can be added to make it less harsh.
ganske udmærket rom, væsentlig mindre sprittet end 8års, og meget nem at sippe. Men efterlader ikke det store indtryk. Havde måske forventet mere.
Tres bonne surprise, tres agréable...un peu sec, mais parfumé.
un peu sur l'alcool, mais reste gourmand..
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 !
Nice balanced rum. Good for rum beginners and good introductions of agricole rum.
Strong but still smooth, well-balanced, not sweet (what is a big plus). Great for sipping neat or with just one cube of ice.
If you like dry (not sweet) sipping rums, Barbancourt's 15 year offering is a great choice. Peppery and with all the other spicey hints that make a sipping rum good, but without too much sweetness.
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.
reviewed in error. I meant to review the Barbancourt Estate Reserve 15-Year, but I don't see how to delete a review.
este es un ron que vale la pena probar, se toma en las rocas y su sabor es excepcional
Just a pure, well made rum. No need for flavors or spices. Smooth sipping rum.
My first taste of Haitian rum. First thought was, "Is this rum or bourbon?" Quite oaky and dry. Lacks the sweetness of most rums, so if that's what you like, this one is not for you. Yet if you are somewhere in between, I think you will enjoy the Barbancourt 15 very much. I found it to be a wonderful change of pace from my usual Zacapa, Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, HC7, and others.
Quite smooth. I didn't detect much bite to it at all.
Light brown in color w/ pencil thin legs on the side of my glass.
Nose is of light oak and faint vanilla.
Most will enjoy it. Mine was a sample from a friend. I can see myself searching this out for purchase.
This is a great rum with cola, on the rocks with limes or as a rum for mixing. A little bite straight but better than most with the same bite. A great mixing standard.
A strong initial flavor leading to a drier finish on this rhum. Not my favorite sipper but recommended!
A nice sipping rum with a good finish. You can taste the sugar cane along with a strong maple smell.
Far superior to the 8yo, the main problem for my taste, is that the oak is (possibly) a touch too pronounced on the nose but more so on the palate. Sometimes that doesn't present a problem, but on others I find it too much. Nutty, spicey, oaky, nice kick of alcohol - even though possibly too much oak, there is good integration of all parts making a damn good rum. Good length on the finish.
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 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.
Lots of oak, slightly grassy decent sipping 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!!!
Dark amber, bright, dark caramel. Cinnamon spice.
One of my first experience of old rhum years ago
This rhum gave me the passion for old rhum
