GUYANA 2005 TCRL 58,1%
Rhum De Melasse, British Guiana, 70cl, Ref: 53851
Distilled on 1 May 2005, this version was aged first in a tropical climate until 1 January 2006 and then in a continental climate for almost 12 years. Produced from a blend of two casks, it shows a fierce aversion to being tamed both on the nose and the palate. Besotted with its freedom, it absolutely refuses to be hemmed in by any olfactory or gustatory constraints. Refusing any form of nostalgia, it strides resolutely to its even more promising future.
Profile: lightly camphoric and medicinal, the powerful initial nose is also extremely fruity (pear, peach). Allowed to breathe, it develops notes of cane sugar and caramel. Increasingly exotic (pineapple) and herbaceous (cut hay), it keeps pushing forward. Lively, like a tidal wave, the attack shakes everything in its path. Melon, aniseed and liquorice rise from the depths of the gustatory palette. The vanilla finish is characterised by white fruit and noble spices.

- Appearance : pale gold.
- Nose : lively, powerful. Slightly camphoric and medicinal, the initial nose is also extremely fruity (apple, pear, peach). Allowed to breathe, it develops notes of cane sugar, liquorice and caramel. With huge depth, it becomes increasingly exotic (pineapple, persimmon) and herbaceous (cut hay, damp straw). The aromatic palette shows an incredible desire to keep moving forward.
- Palate : very lively, vigorous. Like a tidal wave, the attack shakes everything in its path. It takes time for its notes of melon, pear spirit, aniseed and liquorice to rise to the surface of the gustatory palette. The mid-palate reveals lots of stone fruits (Mirabelle plum, peach, plum liqueur). With time, the same melon appears alongside strawberry in an original and harmonious combination.
- Overall : long, assertive. Cloaked in a thin layer of vanilla, the finish allows a glimpse of stunning notes of coconut milk and fresh walnut. It then returns to the white fruit of the aromatic palette. Revealing noble spices (saffron, cardamom), the retro-nasal olfaction also reveals citrus fruit (lemon, grapefruit). Returning to its roots, the empty glass wonderfully expresses the power of the new spirit.
- 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.

Laphroaig 10 year old is undoubtedly one of the all time great malt whiskies from Scotland. Its idiosyncratic peaty character stands out...€46.00
