Transcontinental Rum Line Nicaragua 2004 2 Glass Giftpack

, ,

Transcontinental Rum Line Nicaragua 2004 2 Glass Giftpack was distilled on 1 December 2004. This version was aged first in a tropical climate until June 2015 and then for a further 2 years in a continental climate. It has a very complex nose, in which every aroma is put with rare precision in its rightful place. The palate is full of energy, showing both wonderful depth and lots of breadth. The very juicy finish reveals lovely wood notes. Each of these stages would stand out on their own – but together we witness a wonderful feat of teamwork.

Gift presentation box and two tasting glasses included.

Tasting Notes: The big initial nose is fruity with orange, cocoa, apricots and floral notes. It develops into sweet notes of crème brûlée and exotic fruit. The mouthfeel is silky but also spicy. The mid-palate is liquoricey with ginger. The extremely juicy finish offers delicious orange flavours as it develops into spiced bread and bourbon vanilla with notes of wood and toast at the end of the palate.

Transcontinental Rum Line Nicaragua 2004 2 Glass Giftpack 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.
