Nice change of pace. Different flavor but not too agricole or clairin. Keep going back and buying it.

After reading reviews on this rum for some reason I was expecting it to have a more intense flavor than it has, but its fairly light in flavor compared to the molasses rums I'm used to. This is my first experience with cane juice based rum, and I wasn't sure what to expect, I guess this style is typically a bit lighter in flavor. Other people comment that this isn't exactly the typical rhum agricole style, since its (thankfully) missing "grassy/funky/tequila" notes. I'd agree with that, it does taste more like a lighter version of a molasses based rum. I understand that it may have cane sugar syrup in addition to cane juice, so not a true rhum agricole in the strict sense.

I'm going to cut/paste this into the Estate Reserve 15yr review, since I'm pretty sure they are the same product. Mine says "Reserve du Domaine" on the box, and "Estate Reserve" on the bottle. Also, my bottle has a cork, so apparently they upgraded from the screw top recently, and the labeling is different, the bottle looks nothing like the picture at the top of this thread. There's an image that pops up in this thread in the "Review Images" section, that has a pineapple wearing a pair of sunglasses, next to the pineapple is the box and bottle that matches mine.

One review described its color as "dark amber to brown" whereas mine is what I'd call straw or light amber, about like a pale ale beer color. Not sure what to make of that, mine is nowhere near dark amber to brown. But, in the review images, 4th from left, there's a bottle that clearly contains a dark brown liquid. There are several pictures of bottles with the 1862 sticker on the lower part of the neck, and glasses containing the rum next to them. Those are much darker and what I'd call a mahogany shade compared to the lighter straw color of mine. Has the formulation changed that much over the years? It appears that it has, so keep that in mind while reading through the reviews. The light color of mine is consistent with the main image at the top of this thread, where the light color of the rum is barely visible against the darker brown bottle that contains it.

Bottom line, I'll give this a 7, its a good tasting rum, but not anything I'm going to rush out and buy again. At $63 I was expecting a bit more.

edit: after having the bottle open for a few weeks, and several re-tastes, I'm going to bump this up to an 8. I don't know if it improved in the bottle over that time, or if I started to appreciate the flavor more, but I like it better now than when I first opened it and did the initial review.

Wonderfully complex and fruity rum.

A superb dry agricole rum bottled at 43% that explodes into a succession of candied fruit, oaks, and clove/cinnamon notes. I first tried this in the 1980's and thought it had vanished, only finding the rather grim 8 year old... Just saw int in a New Hampshire outlet...and it is exactly as tremendous I I remembered. A must have!!!

First time I tried this Barbancourt 15 years, it went immediately in my top 5 rums. It is as well my favourite rhum agricole. Very suprinsingly it has a profile that doesn't match the typical vegetal and floral notes of the rhum agricole butbut rather goes in the direction of an aged molasses rum.

Nose is very delicate on the vanilla and cocoa. The mouth is round, equilibrate on cocoa and toffe with a long finish on coffee notes.

In short a great rum for the value and an absolut try!

Tasted at Laka Lono on 5/11/21. Color is dark amber to brown. Aroma of thick caramel and molasses. Initial flavor is smoke. Long finish on the tongue. Surprisingly hot for a 15 year. Definitely my pick of the Barbancourts. Fruity pears. Big honey sweetness.
