I recently got a promotion, so I wanted to buy myself an expensive rum to celebrate. Plus, this is my 400th rum review. I already own most of the expensive rums that I can obtain locally, and so this one stood out for me at about $600/bottle. So I figured 'what the hell, I'll give it a try'.
I need to disclose that I'm not a fan of Neisson rhums. All of the Neisson rhums I've tried before this I rated either a 5 or a 6, and those weren't cheap. Neisson just isn't my style (too dry for my taste).
But I definitely like this a lot more than the other Neissons I've had. The aging really makes a difference. It has a nice and smooth feel that goes down easy for 44%abv. Like other Neissons it lacks the sweetness that I like in rum. Nonetheless, if you like Neisson rums, I'm fairly certain you'll like this a lot more than the others.
Smells and tastes of sugarcane, burnt oak, and pepper. Easily the best Neisson I've ever tried.
Really smooth (makes sense at 18yr) but there’s a bitter metallic finish taste, i dont like rums that are too sweet but this one could use a bit more sweetness in the end, it has a short finish, awesome for a collection surprising for this brand.
