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.
Despite being an aged dark rum, it's very dry, lovely undertones, all without the typical syrupy sweetness.
Visited the Neisson distillery while vacationing in Martinique. Self guided distillery tour ended with an open tasting bar. Neisson Vieux was priced at EUR 35 per bottle at the distillery. Very nice and sturdy bottle design with a great old school label. Golden color. Traditional sweet Rhum Agricole flavors complemented with plenty of grass, some florals, a lot of oak and a massive amount of citrus notes to the nose and palate. Very strong burn at the end. Rhum Agricole fan boys can easily add 2 points to my score.
