Default Review: Barbancourt 8 Yr Old Haitian Rhum

The Earthquake which struck Haiti on January 12, 2010 has had, (and continues to have), a devastating impact on the Nation of Haiti as a whole. Reports are very contradictory as far as the impacts towards the rum industry which is a major player in the overall economy of Haiti. In fact it is believed that the rum industry must be one of the major driving forces to supply jobs and income to help the country rebuild. With that in mind I decided to review the Barbancourt 8 Yr Old Haitian Rhum such that anyone so inclined to support the rebuilding of Haiti by purchasing one of their export products would have an idea of whether such an idea would be solely an act of charity or whether the purchase would be worthwhile entirely on its own merit.

I am happy to report that the rhum is very nice and will in the future be a staple of my rum cabinet. Here is an excerpt from my review:

“Upon my tongue the rum feels mildly soft and buttery. In fact I believe I can taste butter alongside the light brown sugar. For spices there is only light hints of cinnamon and oak tannin which begins to taste like anise and orange peel as I let it sit in my mouth. The spiciness is very mild.”

Good review arctic, I agree that this rum is a delight to have and is one heck of a nice horse in the barn.
