Neisson 2005 Rhum Vieux Cask Strength / Velier 70th Anniversary
A 2005 vintage Martinique Rhum Agricole from Distillerie Neisson. Jean and Adrien Neisson acquired their plantation in Le Carbet in 1922, building the distillery nine years later. It remains part of the family to this day, saved by Jean’s daughter Claudine, who quit her job as a hospital physian to run it after his death. Her son Gregory is now its master distiller. He produces its esteemed agricole rum on the distillery’s single-column Savalle still, constructed back in 1938.
Distilled from sugar cane from the 2005 harvest and casked on the 28 December 2005, this was bottled at cask strength in March 2017 for the 70th anniversary of Velier.
