These are great catagories to use for a tasting. The Vizcaya is an excellent rum, a new favorite of mine. I have JM Special reserve, which I like quite a bit. I think the aging time is about the same, but the vintage years are usually very special. I will have to get a bottle. These were good choices for a comparison. Neisson Rhums are always on my favorite list.
I still can't get past the scorpion idea, though.............:eek:

After giving my palate a rest I went back this week in a head to head between Vizcaya and Neisson. The Vizcaya is big, bold and complex. But I found that I far prefered the Neisson for its soft richness.
