TRINIDAD 2006 SB TCRL 56,5%
Rum, Trinidad & Tobago, 70cl, Ref: 55313
Distilled in a column still in December 2006, this small batch of four casks was first aged for seven years in a tropical climate, before continuing its maturation in a continental climate for five years. A subtle blend of power and finesse, firmness and unctuosness, this version's palette of flavours and aromas is underscored by a steadfast minerality. Whether floral, fruity, spicy, medicinal, chocolatey or liquorice, every note throughout the tasting draws on this particularly solid foundation to fully express its potential.
Profile: the refined initial nose is very delicately vanilla, fruity (orange), medicinal and floral (lavender). Mineral once allowed to breathe, it becomes spicy (cumin) and chocolate. The elegant attack is a blend of vanilla and aromatic plants (sage). The fresh mid-palate is characterized by pressed citrus fruit. The dynamic finish wavers between orange and heady florals. Softened by wild honey, it finally finds the ideal balance of sweetness and acidity. Exclusive to LMDW.

- Appearance : burnished gold with glints of copper.
- Nose : firm, refined. The slender initial nose is very delicately vanilla, fruity (orange), medicinal (camphor, ointment) and floral (violet, lavender). Also mineral once allowed to breathe (slate), it becomes spicy (cumin) as new fruits (melon, pippin apple) appear. Gradually, chocolate drops delicately and subtly fill the aromatic palette.
- Palate : lively and elegant. A blend of vanilla and aromatic plants (sage, verbena), the attack is also nobly spicy (saffron, cardamom). With refreshing acidity, the mid-palate is characterized by pressed citrus fruit (orange, grapefruit). Gradually, the flavour palate is enveloped in a thin layer of liquorice. Orange blossom and paprika bring lots of zest to the end of the palate.
- Overall : long, dynamic. Fine tannins from citrus fruit zest and heady florals (broom, iris, tuberose) breathe life into the start of the finish. Soon after, quince jelly and wild honey successfully smooth the rough edges. Having found the ideal balance of sweetness and acidity, the retronasal olfaction reveals lots of stone fruits (apricot, peach, Montmorency cherry). The very powdery empty glass sees vanilla give way to praline.
- The brand
The brandCréé en 2011, Svenska Eldvatten (littéralement “Eau-de-vie suédoise”) est un embouteilleur indépendant suédois de whiskies, rhums et autres spiritueux nobles. Depuis sa création, les deux fondateurs, Tommy Andersen et Peter Sjögren choisissent avec rigueur des fûts exceptionnels et rares et ont à ce jour commercialisé une vingtaine de single casks.
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.
