One of the most prized and deluxe Caviars available today, it ranges from a deep brown to a golden yellow in colour and has a very rich, nutty and full-bodied flavour.
Has a stronger and nuttier taste than the Imperial variety. The pearls also tend to be smaller and are oilier which results in what connoisseurs often describe as a more 'silkier' sensation.
Distinctive and strong 'sea taste'. The colour is typically a pearlescent grey and this variety is appreciated by connoisseurs due to the firm texture and the popping experience when eaten.
Smaller pearls than the Imperial variety, they tend to be black in colour and are slightly more salty.
