Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
It's quite doable. A bit sweet, rough around the edges with some alcohol burn and tingle. Nice overall taste with hints of being an "agricole" rum (though not technically I suppose...). Light fruit and peppery. Short finish that does not linger in any bad way. Spend more for the 8 year / 5-Star though. Perfectly good as a mixer.
This was almost rhum agricole adjacent in terms of some grassy, vegetal notes, but it had too much alcohol flavor to be of much use. If you really want Barbancourt, splurge for a slightly longer aged bottle
When it first hits the tastebuds, it tastes kind of like burnt rubber. It’s not particularly smooth, but oddly enough, the aftertaste is fairly mellow and pleasant. Probably not one I would buy again, but it does fine as a mixer.

1ère dégustation d'un rhum haïtien, un produit assez moyen.
This is basically a silver rum. It tastes very young and unrefined. There is a slight grassiness to it, like a rhum, but it's mostly a boozy vodka-like rum. Some oakiness rounds out the very light flavored, very boozy, very young rhum. Better for mixing than neat.
