Default Barbancourt?

RUHM BARBANCOURT 4yr. Just picked up a bottle. Great taste. I see their is also an 8yr. What seems to to be the verdict on these two?

Classic rum-tasting rum. Made with pride in Haiti. The 3 star, four year old rum is a great base for mixing cocktails, or enjoying on the ricks. The five star, 8 year old rum is an all-time classic great rum. Rich, smooth, full-flavored. The 15 year old Estate Especiale, sold in the US in a frosted bottle is more mature, more complex, luxurious. In the islands, they still sell Reserve du Domaine, the original, 15 year old with a number on each bottle. I keep a good supply of this great rum on hand, always one in the freezer.

I think that 8 year it's less complex than 15 years, but it's the perfect synthesis of Agricole Rums with a good price.

You can not go wrong with any of the Babancourt rhums. The 5 star is a staple on my shelf.

Is that directly from your guide...? Plagiarism! Wait till Robert Burr hears about this!

My verdict is that Barbancourt 8 is a nice after dinner rum that might be good with a cigar as well. I just wrote a review about it actually. If you're interested you can read it here. Now I have to get the 15 year version.

I just checked my bottle of 15, and even though is says Estate Reserve on the bottle, the bottle is numbered. I bought it a while back. Could this be the Reserve du Domain, or the other version?

The 8 year old was on special offer at Waitrose (a British supermarket) a few days ago for Ј15.99 - a very low price, by British standards, for a rum of this quality. And no, I don't work for Waitrose or Barbancourt.
