A while back, we tasted and rather appreciated the white rum of the Martinique distillery: Neisson. Let’s make place today to a version matured at least six and a half years, and bottled in 2009.
Nose : Some vanilla and a bit of coffee from the start. A roundness and softness impression invades the nostrils and tickles our brain, ordering him to tilt the glass a bit more and to succumb to gluttony. Tobacco, burnt wood and spices notes complete the picture. We also perceive a « greener » aspect, as if there was barely ripe banana. Nothing to say, it’s very appetizing, still with a little lack of depth.
Mouth : The attack is on a sweet and woody register, still with this light burnt sensation which remains pleasant. Some cinnamon, tobacco and bitter dark chocolate are also in the mix. If the coffee notes from the nose evoked cappuccino, they’re now replaced by very strong espresso fragrances. It’s round and easy to drink, but it lacks something for the tasting to be completely interesting.
Finish : Of correct length, but not more, it evolves towards wood, spices (cinnamon, pepper) and blond tobacco.
