Archive DIAMOND 2003 Navy TCRL


Rum, British Guiana, 70cl, Ref: 52161

Remarkably well-balanced, this 2003 vintage Diamond dazzles and shines in its classic beauty. While spices play a crucial role in forming the backbone underpinning the progression of its aromatic and gustatory palette, fruit (whether fresh, exotic or dried), primarily heady florals and chocolatey, mineral, root-based and earthy notes all combine to lend this version incredible charm and nuance. Its insatiable and winding, twisting finish create an apex that explodes in a thousand different colours and emotions.

Profile: the nose is rich and beautifully classical. It wavers between notes of fruit, roasted elements and heady florals before finally emerging as very spicy indeed. Slightly earthy, the palate is also fruity and juicy (pear). The end of the palate is remarkably well-balanced.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : mahogany with glints of burnished gold.
  • Nose : full, rich. Boasting a spectacularly classical nature, the initial nose is roasted (tobacco, coffee), fruity (apricot, mango), chocolatey and characterised by polish notes (beeswax, varnish). Upon airing, it becomes floral (lilac, tuberose) and subtly caramelised. Curry powder and pink peppercorn unfurl, enhancing its heavily spicy nature.
  • Palate : firm, assertive. These same spices serve as a seamless, inspired link between the nose and the palate. The latter soon veers towards the apricot-infused with a subtle earthy aspect (clay, marl). The mid-palate is characterised by candied fruit (fig, date), chocolate and black liquorice. It persists with notes of juicy pear and cumin.
  • Overall : long, opulent. Like a wave rushing to the shore, noble spices (star anise, cardamom), fresh fruit (apricot, nectarine), toasted walnuts, cocoa beans and ginger root take the taste buds by storm. Simultaneously sweet and salty, the end of the palate displays a very regal bitterness. The retro-nasal olfaction is oily (black olive) and velvety (hot chocolate). The empty glass is animalistic (bacon) and roasted (Havana cigar).
The brand


Artist, Lands of Scotland, Malt Pedigree, Tartan, The Ten, Very Cloudy... all of these whisky ranges – composed of single malts and single grains – have one thing in common: they were all created by the team at La Maison du Whisky. They are the fruits of many decades of close collaboration with some of the most prestigious bottlers in Scotland. For some years the French importer and exclusive distributor of the classic ranges of well-known spirits producers, La Maison du Whisky was soon granted the very rare privilege of being able to complement these ranges with their own, bringing together two sets of expertise, two reputations and two complementary histories under one, single label.

The line

Transcontinental Rum Line s’inspire des voyages historiques des fûts de rhums entre le Nouveau Monde et le Vieux Continent. Depuis les origines de sa production, le rhum a été transporté en Europe, à la fois pour des raisons maritimes, économiques et techniques. Maritimes, parce qu’il permettait d’éviter de boire de l’eau stagnante lors des longues traversées. Économiques, puisque le rhum vieilli en climat continental s’évapore moins vite et mature plus doucement. Techniques, car la variété de fûts disponibles et le savoir-faire incontestable des maîtres de chai cognaçais et écossais permettait d’obtenir des expressions uniques. Par souci de transparence, chaque embouteillage de la série affiche sa proportion de vieillissement en climat continental.
