Brown rum distilled from sugar cane juice, syrup and/or molasses depending on availability. Aged 8 years.
My personal favorite of the Barbancort rums, Five Star is a tribute to the distillers art. A well balanced, smooth taste of vanilla and smoky oak in a rum that I enjoy with a little ice or water.
Bottled at 43% alcohol by volume.
Arctic Wolf's review
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.”
