Transcontinental Rum Line Panama 2010 was distilled on January 2010 and aged first in the tropics until May 2016 followed by more than a year in a continental climate.
A subtle blend of freshness and maturity, this panama proudly asserts it numerous about-turns. One of the most radical and spectacular appears during the transition from the nose to the palate. Whilst developing in an incredibly tertiary register (marmalade), out of the blue, spices, chillies and a particular present medicinal note appear. With its roller-coasters the star attraction, it couldn’t be more charming.
Limited edition of 6440 bottles per release. Gift presentation box included.
Tasting Notes: The unctuous initial nose wavers between exotic fruit, spice and green liquorice. Allowed to breathe, it reveals notes of honey and vanilla. Gradually it becomes increasingly mature. The lively attack is hot and medicinal (balm). Next, ripe fruits release their sweet juices onto the tongue and coconut milk coats the sides of the palate. The finish is heady, exotic, vanilla and mentholated.

Transcontinental Rum Line Panama 2010 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.
