Neisson Agricole Rhum

Neisson Agricole Rhum Reserve Speciale...$64.99
Rums at the origin of this wine from a selection of different vintages.
No fewer than five different qualities of aged rums are components of this assembly, with aging put in over several years.
Rums behind the Special Reserve have aged between 50 and 60 months in barrels of less than 650 liters, with an average of 4 years and 5 months.  Initially, the white rums stay 6 months in new barrels of 350 liters, in Limousin oak. They are then transferred to older casks of various capacities and origins. Successive passes of the water spirits in barrels of different degrees of depletion ensure smooth extraction of perfume from the wooded character of oak lignin, while avoiding an excess tannins.
Reducing the alcohol content up to 42% takes place throughout the aging thanks to the annual two tools.

Serving suggestions:
Special Reserve appreciates pure, served in a snifter, or old punch with one stroke of the cane sugar syrup.

Agricole: French term for cane juice rum, a style of rum originally distilled in the French Caribbean islands from freshly squeezed sugar cane juice rather than molasses.
