All about making whisky
PANAMA 2010 Batch #2 TCRL 43%
Rhum De Melasse, Panama, 70cl, Ref: 52160A
To appreciate the full originality of this 6-year-old version, you really need to breathe in the aromas of the empty glass at length, allowing the extent of its olfactory and gustatory childhood memories, fragments of family meals, to rise to the surface. Conscious of sticking as closely as possible to the sugar cane, it manages to show an incisive sense of timing, striking at the very end of the palate to offer up a thrilling finish full of vitality and freshness that often wanders off-course.
Profile: the nose is gourmand, meandering from citrus fruit to candied apricot before the sugar cane pushes ahead to take over. Sunny, it develops into dried fruit. Long and streamlined, the palate is milky more than anything. It incisively expands its hot, spicy temperament. This finish is very warm, yet simultaneously blessed with great gourmand freshness.

- Appearance : intense burnished gold with copper tinges.
- Nose : round, generous. On the initial nose, citrus fruit zest and candied apricot rise from the bottom of the glass to the surface of the aromatic palette. Soon after, intimately bound notes of sugar cane and cane sugar collide to form the backbone of the aromatic palette. Flaunting its sunny disposition, it develops into dried fruit (date, fig), Bourbon vanilla and heady florals (reseda, freesia).
- Palate : powerful, lively. The elegant attack on the palate begins by releasing notes of thick cream and salted butter. The mid-palate rapidly shifts towards sugar cane, with a particular focus on its fibrous and vegetal aspect. Showing great incisiveness, it becomes increasingly spicy (black pepper, ginger) and hot (Cayenne). Light tannins then have a gradual tightening effect on the taste-buds.
- Overall : slender, sharp. It pulls out all the stops in creating a melting pot of twigs, essential oils (vetiver), camphor and root ginger. In a remarkable flourish of freshness, it gains in gourmand personality, becoming chocolatey, roasted (coffee) and mentholated. The retro-nasal olfaction is divinely spicy (saffron, curry powder) and the empty glass unleashes original notes of peas, reminiscent of a mouth-watering portion of split pea purée.
- 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.
