Your comments are stirring the market Adam. Obviously the Waitrose spirits buyer reads this forum!

I suspect that Paulipbartender was referring to the comments by Berbician earlier in this thread.

Default Barbancourt White?

Hey all - I do love a good bit of (any of the) Barbancourt products, but in poking about their site I noticed they have a white rum out now?!?

Is this a new product or should I just be yelling at my local liquor store owner for not bringing in a case on the (safe) assumption I would buy it?

Cheers!

we've been drinking Barbancourt white for years. We sometimes buy it here in the states for $13, but more often in the islands for $5 a bottle.

What is the difference between Barbancourt 4 and 8 years? Besides 4 years. Is one sweeter then the other?

The 8 year or 5 star is a little smoother with a more pronounced butterscotch flavor. There is also slightly more smoky oak flavor due to the longer aging.

I thought Id give this old thread a 'bump' as Im thinking of buying some Barbancourt 5 star / 8 year :-)

As a benchmark I have 2 other agricoles - Saint James Amber & Trois Rivera Blanc. I don't enjoy the aftertaste of Saint James Amber but I enjoy the funk of the Trois Rivieres Blanc, Im looking for neither in my next purchase (e.g. I like less after taste, less funk but still some, more rich flavours).

It's generally well reviewed but wonder how many people rate it based my comments above & as a top self mixing rum / rhum for tiki drinks / traditional recipes / sipping?
