Neisson Rhum Agricole Ed Hamilton 2015 was distilled in 2015 and put into new French Limousin oak barrels on February 23rd of that year. Each year the barrels of this vintage year were batched and the barrels were topped off with rhum from the same vintage and production. In 2018, two barrels totaling 350 liters were bottled for Ed Hamilton at just under cask strength - 57% ABV.
Baked tropical fruit lead in the aroma followed by spice and hints of smoke. The first taste is a rich entry of rich fruit, nutmeg, sweet baked plantain wrapped in a slightly smoky oak finish.
Only 426 bottles of this rhum were bottled at the Neisson distillery in Carbet, Martinique. Although this is labeled single barrel, Ed Hamilton selected two barrels of this rhum for this Special Bottling of Neisson aged rhums because one barrel was just not enough.
