The flavors of this rum are very similar on the nose as they are in the glass, with butterscotch and toffee flavors accented by sandal wood and French Limousin oak. As a 15-year-old spirit, the more oaky notes that are to be expected in the flavor, are less prominent due to the use of large wooden vats to age a portion of the rhum. These large vats allow less interaction with the oak.
Also on the palate are flavors of rich fruit and baking spices. Caramelized brown sugars, and a dash of spices like cloves and cinnamon, with some marmalade and marzipan, and even a light smokiness of dark tobacco are all present.-Distiller Notes
Distilled in Haiti since 1862, Rhum Barbancourt is crafted from 100% sugar cane juice, no molasses, giving its taste most delicate flavors. Depending on the aging, 4 different rums come out of the distillery, each with its own unique trait: the 15 years old Estate Reserve, the 8 years old Rserve Spciale 5 star, and the 4 years old 3 stars are aged in oak barrels, while White Rhum is aged under a year in a stainless tank.-Distiller Notes
