Barbancourt 5 Star Reserve Especiale 8-Year rum

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.

I picked this one up when I was finding it difficult to find a true rhum agricole. I don't enjoy it neat, but I really enjoy it with a Mexican coke and another rum.

Light amber, faint nose, but nicely balanced and very easy to sip. A very good value.

A good Agricole Rhum (not my cup of tea) but goes well on the Cuba Libre… a bit spicy and harsh typical from these types of rums.

I really like this one, definitely more mature than the 4-year sibling. Has that same sweetness as the younger one, mild spice, very little alcohol burn, including on the nose. I detect very little of it being an "agricole" style rum. I don't detect except for the faintest hint of this on the nose. Light woodiness - perfect for me, though a bit more would be totally acceptable too. A bit of pleasant bitterness in the relatively short finish. Worthy of sipping in my book!

I don’t hate this rum. I think for an agricole priced under $30 it’s a decent value. I’ve come to enjoy it most neat.

This is a decent agricole rum but I definitely wanted more. It's reasonably smooth (little burn,) moderately priced and decently flavored (although it does have a bite to it.) Not a bad rum (in fact, it's pretty good,) but considering its aging and prestige, I was definitely hoping for better. Still, it's worth a try!
