Through the very old Barbancourt Réserve Spéciale 5 étoiles pure cane juice rum, Haiti expresses the richness of its terroir.
After 8 years of ageing in Limousin oak barrels, the cuvée has acquired a remarkable aromatic bouquet. It has also acquired a beautiful balance which makes it a recognised tasting rum.
Three medals at the International Wine & Spirit Competition in London crown Barbancourt Réserve Spéciale.
Laurent's tasting note
Its colour is golden with discreet green reflections.
On the nose, it is lively and dry. The alcohol is present without being too marked. We are on vanilla and nuts (almond and walnut).
The entry in mouth is supple and even slightly mellow. Here it is the caramel that dominates. The balance between the alcohol and a relative sweetness is interesting.
The finish is drier and offers us once again caramel but also a slight touch of citrus (orange).
