, , ,

Transcontinental Rum Line Barbados 2005 Cask Strength is a big, full-bodied blend of Barbadian pot still and column still rum rum from the renowned Foursquare rum distillery. This small batch was distilled in 2005 and first aged in a tropical climate in ex-bourbon casks for eleven years. It then continued its maturation in ex-rum casks in a continental climate for two years. Bottled at cask strength, allowing the rum’s assertive notes to shine.

Gift presentation box included.

Tasting Notes: Characteristics of pipe tobacco, gillyflower and spice. The more unctuous mid-palate is milky (coconut), honeyed (bay leaf) and syrupy. Great length to the finish.

Transcontinental Rum Line Barbados 2005 Cask Strength is part of the the TCRL brand from La Maison & Velier. Launched in 2016, this new brand of rum has seduced lovers of barrel proof and high-end rum.

The Transcontinental Rum Line or TCRL is inspired by historic voyages of rum casks between the New World and the Old Continent (Europe). From the beginning of its production, rum has always been shipped to Europe for nautical, economical and technical reasons. 

  • Nautical, because it permitted to avoid stagnant water consumption during long transatlantic crossings.
  • Economical, since the angel share is lower and the rum matures more smoothly.
  • Technical, because the know-how of Cognac and Scotland’s cellar masters plus the diversity of barrels allowed to create unique expressions.

For the sake of transparency, each bottling of the series displays its proportion of aging in continental climate.
