Schönes sattes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase, wie auf einem Eichenbrett flambiertes Karamell mit Kräuter und tropischen Früchten im Hintergrund.
Im Gaumen nicht ganz so gediegen wie in der Nase. Die Zunge wird von den 43% Vol. schon ein wenig "angeheizt". Karamell, Eichenholz, ein in Schokolade getunkter Fruchtspies mit angenehm warmen Mundgefühl.
Im Abgang gesellt sich zur Schokolade noch eine dezente Vanillenote.
Ein Rum für Entdecker und Neugierige der Raum, Zeit und Sommertemperaturen braucht um sich zu entfalten.
Ein Agricole der auf Melasse getunt ist.

Beautiful full amber in the glass.
In the nose, as on an oak board flamed caramel with herbs and tropical fruits in the background.
On the palate, not quite as elegant as in the nose. The tongue is already a bit "heated" by the 43% Vol. Caramel, oak, a chocolate-dipped fruit skewer with a pleasantly warm mouthfeel.
The finish is joined by a subtle vanilla note to the chocolate.
A rum who needs space, time and summer temperatures to unfold, for explorers and curious.
An Agricole tuned to molasses.

Light, smooth, and not too sweet. Great sipping rum reminds me of cognac. Definitely can taste the wood from the barrels.

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.

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!

Posted over 5 years ago by Tito Jackson from United States with 28 ratings

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

Posted over 6 years ago by BerodeQuentin from France with 40 ratings

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!!!
