Neisson Réserve Spéciale Aged Rhum
Distillerie Carbet Neisson is much like it was in 1922 when the Neisson family began planting cane on Morne Vert. The rhum making process is similar to the other distilleries in the area, except here fermentation is allowed to continue for three days before the wine is distilled, resulting in a wilder, funkier, grassier spirit that has become a true cult favorite for devotees of Agricole Rhum. Distilled and bottled on estate in the Northwest corner of Martinique, all Neisson rhum is made from fresh sugarcane juice processed according to French government's Appellation d'Origine Controlee.
The Réserve Spéciale is aged up to 10 years in new French oak barrels and used bourbon and whisky barrels. Bottled at 42% ABV. You'll find a rich aroma of dark fruit and roasted nuts leading to a hearty body of tropical fruit, almond and smoky oak. Rich vanilla hues are accented by hints of spice that ascend in the warm, lingering finish. Well-aged and dry sipping Agricole which still maintains plenty of the sugarcane's vegetal funk.
