Un haitien... Forte présence de vanille. Bcp de corps mais moelleux malgré tout. Rond comme il se doit.

Suitable for the mixing maybe but no more. Too alcholic

There are no words. Similar taste with Stroh, only less alcohol.

No fan of the "agricole", but the scharp taste makes it suitable for mixing

Even as a mixer, was not as smooth as I would have hoped. Have it as a 4.5 on my chart.

Strong very decent but strong as hell , not great and fun

Not much, with cola only..............................................................

Rougher than the 5 star, but still drinkable, if mixed. Great budget rum.

not the best, not the worst. in between. if you want to have a nice rhum for a minimum of bucks, than try. taste it neat on its own. the whole taste goes into the direction of the five star. but in the end it lacks complexity and smoothness.

À venir prochainement.............................

This rum did not make me go to it often. It sat for one of the longest periods of time on my open bottle shelve. It has a certain roughness in its tone. Not due to the alcohol just its general flavor profile. To me it had a certain rancidness to it, maybe the sugar cane used in my bottle was not the freshest.

Le fait qu'il soit à partir de jus de canne et non de résidus de canne m'a fait croire que j'aurais droit à un très bon rhum. Il est très bien avec du cola et un peu de jus de lime. Sec, la sensation de brûlure est trop présente pour bien apprécier les arômes.

A nice, dry rum with a nice aroma indicating some sweetness. The flavor is also nice. Similar to the 5-star but not as smooth. It has somewhat of a complexity about it. A little more of a burn than the 5-star but nothing harsh. There is a butteriness to it along with a mild sweetness. There seems to be similarities between the 3-star and 5-star rums with the differences being somewhat minute. The longer aging definitely makes the 5-star smoother and the flavors stand out more. This one is as expected of a younger rum. Definitely makes a good mixer. And is wonderful in Coke Zero. I still wish they used a cork instead of a metal screw cap.

To me, it's an OK rum, not the best by far. It has the presence and the sting you want from rum, but not the complexity to be called a great rum. Ok at best


For just a few dollars more you can get the much better 5-star 8-year-old version. This 3-star rum is 4 years old, and has a very thin, grassy taste. I used to put it in Mai-Tais along with a dark Jamaican, but there are so many better-tasting, aged agricoles out there. Not a terrible rum, just really unnecessary.

VERY dry and with a strong burn.
Very little taste of either sugar or sugar cane and a strong earthy after taste.

Good enough (barely) to use in a fruit punch

Easy to drink. Mellow flavor compared to the five star. Nothing too special.

Barbancourt makes some fine aged rums. The 3 star is not quite a sipping rum, better used in cocktails.
