Neisson Eleve Sous Bois 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.
This light straw colored rhum was distilled from fermented fresh sugar cane juice and aged 18 months in 1,000 - 2,000 liter French oak vats. The freshly-harvested sugar cane and white oak nose complements the rich tropical citrus in the aroma. A balance of wood, vanilla, fresh sugar cane and oak body linger to the luxurious finish.
