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.

This agricole rum has a nice taste and a good character despite being young, only 8 years old.

I really like barbancourt's nose. It tells of much more years than 8. The taste is sweet at first, then highly fluctous grassy and finally deep tobacco and coffee. I really like this one. However it is a little bit too strong on the alcoholic odor.

A little light for an aged rum, but it makes up for it in flavor. Nice amount of spice and sweetness, and just a hint of that rhum agricole funk. Highly recommended, and used often for tiki mixing.

It's like brandy with water and no good with coke.

I find Barbancourt special, it`s less grassy than regular agricoles and it´s still a cane juice rum. The honey-like but sort of dry flavor is great to mix drinks with, the 15 yo is much better though.

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.
