FIDJI 2009 Navy TCRL Sans Etui 57,18%
Rhum De Melasse, Fiji, 70cl, Ref: 53853
Distilled on 1 September 2009, this version was aged first in a tropical climate until 1 June 2010 and then for more than 7 years in a continental climate. Produced from a small batch of four casks, it invites us on an olfactory and gustatory journey of incredible richness and complexity. Present from start to finish, milky and lemony notes act as its backbone, creating the vital transitions between each stage of the tasting.
Profile: the lively initial nose is marked by notes of lemon and rice pudding. Medicinal and vanilla, it becomes increasingly exotic (pineapple) once allowed to breathe. Stunning mentholated freshness. The firm attack returns to the milky, lemony notes of the nose. The mid-palate wavers between cane sugar and bitter orange. The apricot finish is also spicy (star anise), resinous (pine) and almost smoky.

- Appearance : very pale yellow.
- Nose : refined, lively. From milky notes (coconut, rice pudding) to candied lemons, rubbery notes to medicinal notes (balm, camphor) and vanilla notes to exotic fruits (pineapple)... the initial nose is very complex. Allowed to breathe, menthol and liquorice bring the freshness needed for long-lasting success.
- Palate : simultaneously firm and exciting. Returning to the milky and lemony character of the nose, the start of the palate shows a very pleasant unctuosity. The mid-palate is characterised by notes of cane sugar and bitter orange. Gradually it becomes increasingly spicy (ginger, cinnamon) and herbaceous (infused plants).
- Overall : long, fresh. The very apricotey finish is also deliciously mentholated and spicy (saffron, star anise). Next, pine resin and sugar cane give the very end of the palate an intense heat that borders on smoke. The retro-nasal olfaction reproduces the milky, lemon register of the nose and palate. The empty glass is an ode to sugar cane.
- 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 lineTranscontinental 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.
