NEISSON Rum 12 YEARS 49.7% 700ml
It was on November 30, 2005 that this rum began its slow aging in ex-bourbon casks of 195 liters. Drawn off on April 30, 2018 and transferred into 2000-liter French oak barrels. 1742 bottles at 49.7% ABV will be marketed in December 2018. Ample nose with woody notes of cocoa and candied fruit that mingle with spicy cinnamon and ginger fragrances. On the palate, this balance is maintained with a long finish full of exoticism.
A small distillery at the entrance of a fishing village on Martinique island. A small distillery owned by a woman, led by her son Gregory Vernant Neisson, who today is the last Master Distiller and owner in the island. A small distillery, which has become a leader in the Rhum Agricole field thanks to the Appellation d'Origine Contr?l?e (A.O.C.), which is the French equivalent of the English Protected Designation of Origin (PDO). Neisson owns forty hectares in the municipality of La Carbet, and processes only the cane from his plantations, where they seek to cultivate three non-hybrid sugar cane varieties: the malanoi, the ruban?e and the crystalline. The slow fermentation of pure cane juice lasts 72 hours, the longest in all the French Antilles, thus developing a unique aromatic range. The distillation is carried out by Gregory in the mythical Savalle column still from 1938: an artisan, meticulous, almost maniacal distillation with low alcohol content with the intention of producing a rhum of great structure, bottled in the now iconic rectangular z?pol kar? bottle , highly sought after by collectors.
