Barbancourt // Haiti
Barbancourt White Rhum is a clear white rum meant for mixing. It's destined largely for foreign markets, rather than for local Haitian consumers. It's actually lightly aged, for between six and 12 months, and as with all of Barbancourt's products, is distilled from 100% sugarcane juice.
Rhum Agricole BlancRhum distilled from fresh sugarcane juice. Has either been left alone to rest for 3 months, or if aged in oak, must not exceed 3 months in barrel. In Martinique, must be bottled between 80-110 proof.
"The nose is sharp and fiery, with a background of sugarcane, spice, and tropical fruits. On the palate, find a lighter and earthier profile, with vegetal and grassy flavors, and only a hint of sugarcane sweetness and fruit. Finish closes out long, hot and astringent, ending on grassy, earthy notes."
