Barbancourt 5 Star spends 8 years in French Limousin oak casks. Compared directly to its younger sibling, 3 Star, it's certainly more amplified, with heartier, deeper flavors, and is more popular globally than domestically in Haiti. As with the entire Barbancourt lineup, it's made from sugarcane juice and double distilled.

Tasting Notes

"Barbancourt 5 Star is definitely a rum meant for sipping. There's an oaky spice, pepper and wood on the nose, hints of a rich caramel and vanilla in the background. On the palate, find dry oaky notes, vanilla, molasses and cane sugar; its agricole nature shining. On a long finish, find more oak and spice, and a hearty molasses undertone."
