This is my favorite Rum! Dry agricole rum made from sugarcane juice not molasses in Haiti. Bright flavor, not too fancy just good rum. True pirate Rum with it's simple old school bottle and label. Smooth with a little bite, I like to drink it straight out of the bottle, arrrrrrr. Clean liquor never a headache from this stuff.
43% ABV. Pot still. Cane juice. Nose: Hint of creamed corn. A good amount of brine. Some oak. A savory note I can't place. Hint of something medicinal. Caramel underpinning it all. Fairly creamy. If you breathe really deeply, some alcohol. Many of the same notes follow on the palate. Shortish finish.
I was fairly impressed by this one. It's quite good! I truly can't understand the low rating (5.2 at time of writing). Are people expecting a rich, creamy, sugar-and-vanilla delivery mechanism? That's not what this is trying to be. And certainly, in my opinion, it punches above its weight. Barbancourt 3* is an excellent, affordable, and widely available introduction to agricole-style rums.
I Remember all my memories were good with this drink. a 3 star Rhum I would not miss but the 5 stars is a thing to miss. my haitian friends first offered me this drink at their house in Boston, when I was 19. a non drinking age for that state. when I go to liquer store checkin out all the good beers I must say this rhum calls me like Jumanji. $23.although I drink red label and as I age I can drink hard liquer, 4 star haitian rhum is always has a character and my drink of choise in rhum on the rocks.... ı prefer bacardi and fresh coconal make the juie myself to make pina colada. u will understand when u go to a caribbian party with the food..everybody drinks Rhum barbancourt and prefered beer. it is a cultural summer drink. for the price it is a fun original bottle always in my basket.
This is an interesting, solid rum. It is a lot more harsh and fusely than the 8, and for a minimal price difference, I’d definitely get the 8 every time.
Glad to have a Haitian rum in my collection. This one is lovely and I've been able to use it in many different things - it plays well in a Mai Tai! :)
Barbarcourt 3 star’s aroma is distinctive , it is exquisite to savor after dinner with its full body, french caribbean aroma and dark color flavor. Excellent price-quality rum
not the best, not the worst. in between. if you want to have a nice rhum for a minimum of bucks, than try. taste it neat on its own. the whole taste goes into the direction of the five star. but in the end it lacks complexity and smoothness.
N- Soft and quiet, with light ashy smoke breeze thru from a distance, bonfire, phenol charred notes and plenty of sea salts (doesn't it sounds familiar?) Cognac (a vsop) mixed with water alike, which is quite nice. Despite the quiet nature, appeared rounded, serious with fine oak fragrant, probably from a refill brandy cask. (19/25)
P- Layer by spiced salts, some dried berries with rather firm body and well structure, despite light on strength, good oak that impart just the right touch of woodiness that sooth the palate. (19/25)
F- Short-medium, smooth. Drift of dried leaf with charred wood lingers, returns of phenol that make it rather complex. Good light sipping rhum. (20/25)
Balanced:- Brandy alike, which is not a bad thing. (19/25)
Weighted Rate:- 77pt
