Barbancourt 5 Star Reserve Especiale 8-Year

Haiti | Aged

Barbancourt 5 Star Reserve Especiale 8-Year Rum is agricultural, meaning it's produced from fermented sugar cane juice rather than the more typical molasses. The sugar cane juice is double distilled and aged for eight years in Limousin oak barrels.

Dupré Barbancourt created the Barbancourt rum recipe in 1862 in Haiti, where the rum is still produced today. A French national, Barbancourt incorporated traditional French methods including double-distillation in the process.

This run had a light and clean taste with smokey overtones. Great for sipping on the rocks.

Full honey flavor, grass notes and a nice dryness. Light an floral with hints of tannins and wood. Try this in rum cocktails you wanna throw an "island" spin on.

Not a great nose, but really pleasant taste. Not an overwhelming grassy taste common with some agricoles. Just the right amount of slight spice, short to medium finish with some leftover oil.

Very affordable agricole (cane juice) rum. The 5-star is light, easy-drinking, unassuming, fairly dry, some oak. Really smooth and well-balanced. So easy to drink it's downright dangerous.

This is a good sipping rum in a pinch. It pales in comparison to the 15 year, but it mature enough to sip.

Unfortunately, the Barbancourt rums aged less then 15 years are not that good!
Maybe as mixers.

Very decent rum, but not quite there with others in its price range.
