This is a decent rum, and reminds me a lot of the 50%abv Neisson Rhum Agricole Blanc, only much stronger at 70%abv.

I slightly prefer the Agricole Blanc, as I believe it has a little more cane flavor to it, though these are close.

The L'Espirit smells and tastes of a classic agricole rum, with sugarcane, pepper, and a light hint of lemon. Very strong at 70%, this is not a rum for beginners. If you like agricole rums, you'll probably enjoy this more than I do, as I tend to prefer the molasses rums.

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!

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.

Attention ce rhum affiche quand même 70 degrés alors personnellement je le bois après un petit tour au congélateur. Le nez est magnifique, beaucoup de fraîcheur et d'agrumes, on dirait un ti-punch déjà préparé. On a également un côté végétal et on devine la fibre de la canne fraîche.
En bouche c'est rond au départ grâce au refroidissement au congélateur et puis ça explose dans tous les sens, on sent le citron, le poivre, les fruits exotiques... On peut dire que c'est un rhum à sensations fortes, la bouche reste imprégnée pendant de longues minutes.
A déguster avec modération car personnellement ça me brûle quand même un peu l'estomac quand j'en abuse.

Pour moi l'un des meilleurs blancs. Très parfumé. Délicieux en ti punch. (trop fort pour moi pour être bu pur)

In the glass: glencairn, served neat; completely clear
Nose: grass, herbal, fennel
Palate: surprisingly smooth at 70%ABV, same notes as the nose at first with creamy and sweet mouth feel. Fennel, licorice, olives, sugarcane and brine, and finally fruity and earthy finish. Sublime.

I’m in love. This is a funky hot mess. Meaty. Moldy. Overripe bananas. Grassy. And strong as hell. This rum is so different it’s hard to rate on the same scale with other runs or Agricoles, and is in a class by itself.

My 3rd rhum agricole and probably my 30st rum. No extra sweetness, no extra oily feeling... you feel the field of sugar canes. Some grass and some black truffles. Not exactly to drink neat... add a splash of water or, better, lime and cane syrup.

This crystal clear spirit pulls no punches in its full funk sugar cane olfactory assault upon first nosing. This is a promising characteristic, that gives way to the most sublimely nuanced Agricole I've tasted heretofore. I cannot recommend this enough.
