This rum is hot! Bottled nearly at the proof it comes from the still, thus the expression that it is "the spirit of Neisson."

It is difficult to get past the alcohol but once past, it is quite similar to the Neisson 52.5. But where the 52.5 is grassy, this is a bit more vegetal. Where the 52.5 has fruit sugar, this has more caramel. Excellent rum that I'm interested in playing with, as the 52.5 is one of my all time favorites. However, I will stick with the 52.5.

Malgré ses 70°, il est très agréable en bouche, et moins fort que certains alcool moins titrés. Sec et glacé ou en ti'punch, il est l'un des meilleurs rhums agricoles que je connaisse

This is the pinnacle of agricole rhum. Aggressive, grassy, fresh, yet not as harsh as many 80 proof rums. Perfect balance

Im Glas klar wie ein Kristall.
In der Nase schon ziemlich heftig, die 70% treiben Einem fast die Tränen in die Augen. Dahinter eröffnet sich eine Welt voller Düfte, Zuckerrohr, frisch geschnittenem Gras, frisch gepflückten Blumen, Sonne und Lebensfreude.
Im Gaumen, hatte ich noch nie so einen "milden" high proof. Geschmeidig und elegant werden die Geschmacksknospen mit frischen Aromen verwöhnt. Gras, Kräuter, Zuckerrohr, frische Früchte, Zitronen Zeste, Gewürze und eine Priese Meeresluft. Vorsicht, habe einen Tropfen verschüttet und der Linoleum auf meinem Tisch hat sich aufgelöst.
Im Abgang sehr lang und würzig, Früchte und Kräuter kleben lange auf der Zunge.
Ein Muss für jeden Liebhaber solcher Meisterwerke. Perfekter Rhum für 'Ti Punch !

Clear in the glass like a crystal.
In the nose already quite violently, the 70% drive one nearly the tears into the eyes. Behind it opens a world full of fragrances, sugar cane, freshly cut grass, freshly picked flowers, sun and joie de vivre.
On the palate, I've never had such a "mild" high proof. Smooth and elegant, the taste buds are pampered with fresh aromas. Grass, herbs, sugar cane, fresh fruit, lemon zest, spices and a pinch of sea air. Careful, I spilled a drop and the linoleum on my table has dissolved.
In the finish very long and spicy, fruits and herbs stick long on the tongue.
A must for every lover of such masterpieces. Perfect Rhum for 'Ti Punch !

Bought it from the distillery when visiting Martinique about 5 years ago and the Lady from the distillery shop said drink it like Vodka. so put it in the freezer and then drinking. I must say that My face from the first drams was quite like a baby biting into a lemon.
It is very strong but tasteful and cold.
Don’t dink it straight unless you have Russian blood. I found it very nicely paired in rum cocktails.
I did leave the bottle at my mother when I came back to the UK, and guess what she used it to make cakes with it! couple months later that bottle won a gold medal at world spirits brussels and the price tripled... I am writing with tears in my eye!

Un nez peut-être un peu discret par rapport au reste de la gamme de blanc chez neisson, mais qui nous promet de la canne fraiche.
Comme toujours avec les blancs de Neisson, le nez et la bouche sont envahie par des notes d’agrumes, florales et végétale.
C’est gras en bouche et ça dessèche toute la gencive mais l’alcool est plutôt bien intégré.
Un très bon rhum mais qui, à mon avis, perd le combat face au blanc bio et au blanc en conversion bio qui sont des vrais nectars.

Visited the Neisson distillery while vacationing in Martinique. Self guided distillery tour ended with an open tasting bar. Neisson l'Esprit was priced at EUR 20 per bottle at the distillery. Very nice and sturdy bottle design with a great old school label. Traditional sweet Rhum Agricole flavors complemented with plenty of grass, some florals and a massive amount of citrus notes to the nose and palate. Surprisingly strong burn at the end. Very long finish. Rhum Agricole fan boys can easily add 2 points to my score.

Un must dans une collection, ce qui ce fait de mieux actuellement

Among all the great rhum of Martinique, Neisson provides probably the best white ones. If you like white agricole rhum this is a must to taste. The high level of alcohol is great when you drink it plain, tasting it by the drop: it expands its flavours in your mouth unveiling and enhancing the surprising complexity of taste typical of Neisson. Very good plain, fantastic for preparing a Planteur.

Quel travail autour de la qualité dans cette entreprise !
On est surpris par la colonne Savalle, le coeur de la distillerie et d'où sort l'esprit avec les 70 degrés.
Au nez : la canne et le citron mais la canne, la canne.
En bouche, on sent la puissance puis la douceur. Les agrumes et le poivre.
Mais un vrai plaisir.
Certainement, un des meilleurs rhums blancs.
