Transcontinental Rum Line Barbados 2012

,

Transcontinental Rum Line Barbados 2012 was distilled on January 2012. This version was aged first in a tropical climate until March 2017 and then for six months in a continental climate. Through short olfactory and gustatory sketches, each more expressive than the last, it takes us to a truly inviting and original universe, where everything is a pretext for dreams, childhood memories, travel and sharing, with one golden rule: pleasure is king and the present moment for the taking.

Limited edition of 4074 bottles per release. Gift presentation box included.

Tasting Notes: the rich initial nose is fruity, vegetal and spicy. Allowed to breathe, it becomes milky (coconut) and exotic (banana, pineapple). The whole nose is gradually covered in luxurious vegetation. The refined attack is juicy and in turn spicy. The mid-palate reinforces its exotic character. The slightly tannic finish grinds its spices into powder. A note of incense hovers above the gustatory palette.

Transcontinental Rum Line Barbados 2012 is part of the the new TCRL brand from LMDW. Launched in 2016, this new brand of rum has seduced lovers of barrel crude 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.
