Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
At 50% its hot. Keep a water back handy and adjust to your sipping pleasure.
If you have ever made jam or marmalade then the nose is instantly recognizable. Bring an unlined copper pot of strawberries, sugar and lemon juice up to 220 degree Fahrenheit and your going to know exactly what I'm getting at.
Perfumed and heady on the nose peppery and zesty on the tongue. I love this stuff but one pour maybe two tops if your sipping neat and then move on to the aged stuff or put it in the middle as a superb contrast and refresher.
I enjoy the smell of this rum a lot; it's like sugarcane on a tropical beach (perhaps from the earthiness/grassiness). It goes down rather smooth for 50%abv. To me this doesn't compare to the aged rums, but it's a good agricole nonetheless. I even prefer this to the more expensive Neisson Rhum Reserve Speciale, as this has more flavor.
I'm not the biggest fan of the Agricole Blancs. I find them a little too sweet and they remind me a bit of moonshine. The darker aged agricoles are more my cup of tea. This one in particular is pretty good when mixed with a nice fruit puree. I like strawberry or watermelon to do the trick.
It is this good!
The usual agricole grass and straw, but with a citrus/lime twist. Very funky and punchy rhum. The special sucar cane edition whites can offer perhaps similar notes but not other rhums. Really really good in coctails and on its own with lime. If you like sugar, you can add it our course to make it burn less. For me the 50% is the right one, 55% kills some of the notes (this view is shared by many local Martiniquans as well). Awesome stuff!
Narrow nose and taste for me with this rum. Created some heat but flavor was shallow without the depth of better rums. Definitely not a sipper for me and a poor mixer...
Visited the Neisson distillery while vacationing in Martinique. Self guided distillery tour ended with an open tasting bar. Neisson Blanc 50 was priced at EUR 16 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. Rhum Agricole fan boys can easily add 2 points to my score.
Incolore,olive, simile sake , grassy, nota very sweet,not a Classic rum.
Complex and over powering. Best saved for the day you run out of fuel in the car.
Nose: Very grassy. Some rubber/industrial aromas.
Palate: Slightly sweet and salty.
A solid agricole blanc. Recommended.
LE rhum pour le ti punch. Frais puissant et équilibré. Long en bouche fruité avec de la canne en veux tu en voilà... bref un neisson...what else ?
Un équilibre parfait,
Des arômes intenses,
Une puissance d'une grande finesse.
Ce rhum est un grand classique de martinique.le 50 pct est tres bien.fruite sur le fruit tropical et la canne.Que de puissance au nez et en bouche.un delice.je prefere un pmg et une cuvee 355 3 rivieres.mais longtemps mon top 1 blanc et facile a trouver.A esszyer absolument.note 8.5.
Awesome non better for a T-punch I am enjoying it now!
Awesome Rhum. First drank it in Martinque with family and it is my favorite for a Ti punch. Found it in a Penna state store and I bought all they had. Now, time to buy more. I can not find it locally in NJ but I am searching the internet for it. Maybe I'll have Penna liquor stores order it for me.
Le Neisson blanc à la réputation d'être le meilleur rhum blanc de Martinique.
La version 55° conserve les qualités du 50°(goût très fruité) ce rhum a une attaque très sèche, avec une forte note d'alcool.
On ressent l'alcool et il y a peu entre le décollage et la mise sur orbite.
Meilleur en ti punch que sec.
Fruity in smell and taste, strong in mouth and good finish... The best with sugar and lemon.
Got this rum everywhere on a trip to Martinique a couple of years ago. Best in ti punch or mixed with some lemon soda.
Ce rhum se révèle être parfait pour le ti punch, il peut aussi se boire sec tant il est fruité.
Another unaged agricole rum reminding me of the cane juice being cooked down into ribbon cane syrup in flat trays during my childhood in rural Mississippi. The aroma in the snifter has elements of that. Of course since it is made from freshly crushed cane juice. The flavor is quite good manifesting the cane aroma into an outstanding taste. Although the ABV is 50% (100 proof) there really isn't a major burn. Neisseon Rhum Agricole Blanc, along with the Clement Premiere Canne Rhum, are two of the best rested agricole rums that I have tried and they are reason enough to sample. It is a refreshing change from the sweeter rums I normally enjoy. The Neisson is a bit more subtle than the Clement but both are outstanding.
This would make for an excellent sipping rum as well as a mixing rum. Very versatile and one to recommend to have onhand to lend something unique to adult beverages.
Honnêtement trop fort pour moi, je lui préfère le 50° qui me parait beaucoup plus fruité.
Malgré tout ce rhum est très bon en ti punch.
Among the best Agricole blanc, good value for money
Although I prefer to an aged rhum, richness of this rhum is very attractive.
Nose: white asparagus, rich sugar, soy
Taste: caster sugar, white chocolate
Neisson 55° is really the best rum from Martinique. It does not mean that the others are bad, just that this one is better.
The flavours are really good and if you want to take a ti'punch , this is the one !!
