Recommendable to most
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.
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, but also a slightly metallic note. Taste is equally fruity and 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.
Great sipping rum from Haiti. Although I think that Barbancourt makes some wonderful rums across the board, the 15 year old is a favorite. Deep and caramelly with lots of subtle nuances and layers of character and a pleasant long finish, Barbancourt 15 has been a favorite for many years. Delightful agricole rum.
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.
