Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
like i said just was want to taste some more of bacardi, cute i can't believe it so shitty. And this is another lol content from that label. Taste like alcohol, nothing special, but well, in fact i was drunk and have fun. thats why i post 4, not 1. But really guys!!!!!!!! can some one appeal form me an bacardi rum that is tasty?
It’s reasonably enjoyable neat. I would like to try the 5 star and 15-year, because they’re probably much better for that.
Menej kompkexny ako jeho starsi bracek. Chut sladka (hoci bez pridaneho cukru), trava, med, jemny s teplym dozvukom. Za mna 7+
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
Picked this one up on an end of bin clearance to try my first anything from Haiti. High-end mixer, yes, but can’t drink it straight up. Nose is complex with oak and smoke, but taste is just too much alcohol and also very little mouthfeel.
I have gotten wrapped up in my theory that 3-4 years is optimum aging for rhum agricoles. Since I have their 5-star 8 year and like it, I figured that this lesser aged one could be better. Wrong! The 86 proof really burns the tongue and it needs to breathe for about 30 minutes to be able to drink neat. My theory may hold for Martiniquan agricoles, but not for rhums from Haiti.
Update one month later: All this rhum is good for is mixing with ginger ale similar to my same recommendation for Angostura 5 Year.
I picked up a few of these bottles when iI was in Haiti a few years ago and forgot about them in the back of my bar, I did not miss much. The initial nose is a little flat, and too much burn to smell anything else. If you try hard you will find some tobacco, leather and vanilla. The initial tase was sugary but gave away to bitter and burn too soon, it finished up with some sugar cane. As a sipper it did not cut the mustard, but it was fine in a mix drink.
