N- Oily appearance to the eyes, with a sniff away to tropical. Fresh pressed sugar cane juice, citrus, cedar, tobacco and white chocolate. Fat, creamy, wet turf and grassy, acceptable heats as this is bottled at 52.5abv and un-aged but just maturing in a tank for 3 months. Not as expressive as Bielle, rather emphasize on the freshness and simplicity. (20/25)
P- Good bites of sharp varnish with subtle fragrant of dried leaves and petals, mixed tropical small stone fruits, decent, short on width. (18/25)
F- Medium with plenty of spicy spirit to last, get meatier with nail polish. Same as palate, lack the depth or am i too greedy to think it should give a bit more? (18/25)
Balanced:- Highly fragrant and fresh, a typical tropical nose that make you want a holiday. (19/25)
Weighted Rate:- 75pt

Bought this Rhum Neisson Blanc from Catawiki a few months ago.
The distillery is owned by the Neisson family since its foundation in 1932. They uses fresh sugar cane juice from locally grown cane. After a quite long fermentation it’s distilled in a French Savalle column still installed 1938.
The nose is aromatic, spicy and fruity with hints of grass, mineral and honey.
On the palate as well as during the quite long finish it’s quite powerful and the aromas from the nose comes back. I also recognize citrus and pepper and some hints of anise.
Overall a great Agricole Blanc that’s very good neat, but a little weak in a Ti Punch.
Pictures: My opened bottle together with a poured glass out in the Stockholm archipelago & together with a Ti Punch.
…well, then, you’ll love this.
It’s purely a sipper for real rhum agricole heads, just powerful in taste, feel, aroma and potency. Truly exceptional example of a world class white sipping rum, and perhaps in a category all its own as a result of this.
Mixing this would be a waste; however, in cocktails where the spirit shines above all else, this would be the one to use from the Martinique AOC cabal of distilleries.
Enjoyed a mini bottle of Neisson Le Rhum 52.5% while vacationing in Fort de France Martinique. Pretty basic bottle and label design. Cheap at EUR 18 for a real sized bottle. Strong Rhum Agricole notes like grass and plenty of wood to your nose and palate. Very long lingering afterburn. Rhum Agricole lovers can easily add 2 points to my score.
White rhum weighing in at 52,5% vol. Bought with the intention of making a bloody good ti punch, and this rhum delivered. The nose is so unique and intense with fruity notes of lime, mango, papya, coconut and newly cut grass. Trying it neat, this Neisson delivers a pure and powerfull mouthfull with notes of coconut, lime, mango and white pepper exploding on the tounge, leaving a dry feeling as the residue evaporates. It's bloody good and makes for a phenomenal ti punch. Dangerous drink.
Typical agricole flavours, with a touch of softness. Appealing and obviously a step up from HSE, for example, in quality.
The only issue is that, for me, I'd much rather put clairin in my cocktails. I just get so much more pleasure from the pot still flavours. Sorry Neisson, I'm going to have to hunt down an aged edition before I take a punt.
Nose: village, tomatoes, fresh milk, cover from corn
Taste: not so strong, but really rich. Cannot described it really.
An indispensable rum. Unbeatable. I've gone through bottles of this for Ti Punch and for mixed drinks. It has a distinct sugar cane flavor that shines through drinks with floral and fruity notes like jasmine and papaya. And as a high proof rum in a 1L bottle, you’re getting a lot for your buck.
