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.

I had read a number a very good ratings on this rum. I cannot agree on any level. It is harsh, with a metal after taste and finish. Too many great rums out there, this one is a miss.

I used to get this rum every birthday, but it's not available in Australia anymore. Brilliant rum to sip and watch the cricket to. Definitely prefer it as a summer rum, but it soft caramel with light vegetal and lime zest notes is perfect on a warm day. Pairs extremely well with Old Gold Rum'n'Raisin

A decently aged rum, though not overly complex (considering it's 15 years old). The nose has got caramelized fruits, fudge and a nice round spiciness to it. Taste is equally fruity but also a bit dusty with some cardboard; finish could have been a little less dry. It's a decent rum, but the €50 retail price is a bit steep for the experience you're getting.

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!

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.

The wood has taken over a bit in this one compared to the outstanding 8 yr (5 star). I have seen Barbancourt Rhums referred to as "The Cognac of rum" and nowhere is this more evident than in the 15 yr.

Love this rum, can't be the price around $40 US Dollars. Don't notice major differences between this one and the 8 years, which I love as well. This might be a little more woody and at first impression taste just like a very good molasses column still rum, then after a few seconds comes the agricole flavor profile which remain very prolonged in the palate.

L’histoire commence en 1862 lorsque Dupré Barbancourt crée son premier rhum de jus de cannes. Rapidement la qualité de son rhum est reconnue, et atteint une notoriété mondiale dès la fin du XIXème siècle.

Barbancourt est connu pour générer près de 20 000 emplois en Haiti.

Sa méthode de distillation est souvent comparée à celle du cognac (Barbancourt étant, à l’origine, originaire de Charente). Barbancourt 15 ans, reste cependant un rhum méconnu et rare, bien qu’ayant gagné de nombreux prix et concours (Meilleur de sa catégorie 2006, 2007 et 2008 à l'International Wine and Spirit Contest), et relativement difficile à se procurer.
Chaque année, depuis 1960, le rhum Barbancourt Réserve du domaine 15 ans est produit en quantité limitée et, est vendu aux connaisseurs du monde entier. Autrefois réservé à la famille Barbancourt, il a été progressivement ouvert à la distribution.
Bien que n’ayant pas la mention "Rhum Agricole" (mention réservée pour les DOM TOM) il n’en est pas moins produit directement à partir de la canne à sucre.

Aujourd'hui, ses saveurs et sa richesse aromatique en font une véritable référence, et ne vous fiez pas à sa simplicité de présentation et à son un prix plus que raisonnable : ce rhum est un véritable nectar.

Nez : parfumé et complexe sur les agrumes confits, avec de jolies notes torréfiées.
Bouche : puissant et avec du corps, grande palette aromatiques fruitée ( poire, agrumes) et épicée (cannelle). Finale : longue avec des jolies notes d’agrumes et d'épices.

色 : 琥珀のニュアンスの輝きのある黄金色。
香り : アカシアの蜂蜜を連想させる甘い香り。
味わい : 重厚な味わいのミディアムタイプ。年輪を感じさせる味わい。

This is easygoing Barbancourt - Creamy, richly honeyed, the vegetal notes have been filtered away, sadly. Very mellow, but a disappointment. TOO easy. And simple as a result.

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.

This is just a good rum. I didn't note the flavors I was getting, I just made notes that it was good.

Never had a Rhum from Haiti before, this one has a stronger after taste and not quite as smooth as you’d expect from a 15 year old Rhum.

7 more years developed a bit more for them to bottle.

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.

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!

So to be clear - I drink my rum on the rocks
Now having said that - there’s no question about this being a Caribbean rum. Flavourful but this one has a sharper aftertaste verses some of its neighbouring runs. It’s lighter then other aged runs of similar origin. Not a first choice but certainly an enjoyable rum

Nicely balanced- a real range of nose and flavor, from dried fruits to leather and tobacco. Finish is long and a little too oaked for my taste, which is why I rate this a 7 instead of an 8.

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.

My expectations were very low for this one, Rock Stars Rhum, “Jack Daniels” Rhum with a screw cork.
But I must say it’s surprisingly good and really earns its place on my Agricole shelf in my rumbar.

Ce rhum n'est pas disponible à la SAQ. Bon rhum d'Haïti, il faut demander à un voyageur de nous en rapporter une bouteille pour pouvoir y goûter.

Posted about 2 years ago by James from United States with 29 ratings

This is a good sipper, fairly mellow across the board from the nose to the finish. A bit on the dry side, but not in a bad way.

I cannot pick out a single dominant flavor personally - it just seems to have a bit of everything from fruit to,tobacco to a hint of sugar and wood.

Bon rhum, mais je le préfère en drink. Malheureusement, pour le prix, ça fait un peu cher.
