Neisson Extra Old 70cl 45°
Neisson Extra Old has been crafted from white rum first matured in oak tuns and then refined in American oak casks. The rhum has been finished in Cognac and Kentucky wine casks for 3 years thus enhanced with the rich aromas of the French spirit.
This XO expression has been aged for a minimum of 6 years and a half at least, and offers a perfectly balanced style between complexity and oaky softness. This rum displays the characteristics of a 15 year-old European spirit because of its ageing in the tropical climate of La Martinique.
Neisson Extra Old is best enjoyed neat in a hand-warmed spirits glass to exhale its most subtle scents.
Created in 1931 in Martinique, the Neisson distillery preserves and renews since that time its expertise to propose rum agricultural in the purest Martinique tradition. Packaged in an original bottle, the Neisson rum benefits from the label of "Origine Controlée Rhum Agricole Martinique".
An agricutural rum is coming from the distillation of sugar cane juice as opposed to industrial rum from the distillation of molasses (residue from cane sugar production).
The distillery is now managed by the daughter and the grandson of Hildevert-Pamphille Neisson, founder of the distillery. It preserves its independence as a fragile treasure.
"A desire to remain on a human scale, coupled with a quest for excellence, in our opinion, is the only guarantee of offering a rare product, and that the family tradition can last."
