Neisson are a producer of Rhum Agricole from Martinique. The Extra Vieux is one of Neisson’s aged products. The company also produces a number of white rhums.
Unlike many rum producers they actually grow their own sugar cane on site. This is fairly common amongst Agricole producers due to the production methods required.
When Appleton Estate re-branded their rums in 2015 much was made of the move. The usual conspiracists hailed the blends must have all changed and been down graded.
To be honest this is a familiar and very boring critique which is immediately “asked” everytime a producer decides to re-brand. I found it particularly sad that a brand such as Appleton Estate would also be treat with such suspicion.
The latest release from Bristol is this (near) Cask Strength effort from the Caroni Distillery. Bristol have released a good few Caroni rums over the past few years. Including their 1974 effort, which I have sadly yet to review.
Amongst these I seem to remember a Cask Strength Caroni which was possibly released for the Danish or European market only?
Released late in 2016 The Copper Stills is the second in the Origin Series from Bajan rum producers Mount Gay. Origins Volume 2 focuses on the differing styles of rum produced from a traditional Pot and Column still.
A limited edition of 4800 bottles. In this release you get two rums – both in 350ml bottles (two half bottles – you will get two 375ml in other territories). The retail price is around £60. The ABV for both rums is 43% As you can see from the photos the rums come in an attractive brown presentation box, along with a series of informative cards.
Another Independent bottling and another rum from Bristol Classic Rum. Bristol’s Caribbean Collection is actually a blend of Trini only rums. As you can see from the bottle shot to the right.
This is Bristol’s “entry level” rum and it doesn’t come in the usual Bristol stubby style bottle instead it comes in a taller, thinner bar/wine style bottle. You do however still get the full real cork stopper.
Another offering from Florent Beuchart’s Compagnie de Indes. This time we are in familiar territory for site as we look at another bottling from St Lucia.
CDI have been gaining a good reputation over the past couple of years. Stand out packaging – complete with a lot of information, that their target audience will want. Some clever marketing ploys with a few amusingly named/presented blended rums such as Boulet de Canon and the Oktoberfest rum released in Germany.
Another release from Habitation Velier. This time we are seeing Velier partnering up with Worthy Park Estate in Jamaica for this release.
First up I will help with the title for this rum. Fortunately as well as providing us with a rather confusing and slightly obscure title, Velier have also provided us with extensive notes on the production and origin of this rum.
