Bronze color with greenish gray reflections. The nose is on citrus with a pastry side, butter, nuts. Exotic fruits with banana.On the palate, citrus fruits are always present and later arrives the woody and spices. Nice length in the mouth. A nice rum well done.
Tasted this one on this years rumcruise at the Baltic Sea with Birka cruises (March 2019). It’s a fantastic opportunity to taste new rum, rarities and old favourites. I attended at two Master classes. This Rhum represented a mid aged Agricole at a class with the theme diversity of rum.
The included distillate in this Neisson is between 3 and 9 years old. It’s quite smooth, dry and complex. You can recognise wood, fruits, vanilla and grass.
Didn’t buy me a bottle, cause I have decided to buy me a more aged Neisson when I find the one I want, but I can really recommend it.
I was sold by the pretty bottle and high mark up in Norway. There are better rums for half the price.
Nice coulor and obviously no added malasis but it’s rough. But that makes for a rum sorry rhum, with a ok fire taste though a little on the bitter side. Which would have been nice if it didn’t burn like a bitch on the way down. Now I’m left with the teaser of burnt caramel. Well you live and learn. Unless you like your rums harsher than a flogging on the fore mast but something else.
Despite being an aged dark rum, it's very dry, lovely undertones, all without the typical syrupy sweetness.
Vieux rhum agricole bien travaillé et d'une extrême finesse.
Assez viril. Nez vanillé, plus épicé en bouche et boisé mais aurait pu l'être encore plus.
Enjoyed a mini bottle of Neisson Vieux while vacationing in Fort de France Martinique. Pretty basic bottle and label design. Cheap at EUR 19 for a real sized bottle. Strong Rhum Agricole notes like grass and plenty of wood to your nose and palate. Mild citrus and then more oak. Very long lingering afterburn. Rhum Agricole lovers can easily add 2 points to my score.
