Calvisius Oscietra Royal 4.5 oz.
Oscietra Royal is rigorously selected from the finest quality Russian sturgeon roe and prepared using the traditional Malossol recipe (the Russian term for low salt content, usually below 4%). It takes approximately 10-12 years to harvest these large grain pearls (2.8 mm - 3.2 mm) with their velvet smooth and compact texture and distinctive bronze hues. The egg membrane is thick and firm, its colors vary from brown to dark brown with shades of golden amber. The flavor is delectable and complex; its aroma evokes the smells of the sea. It is an exceptionally high quality caviar with pleasant intense nutty notes accompanied by a long lasting buttery flavor. All our caviar is fresh (not pasteurized) with a 3-month shelf life, if unopened. Once opened, it is recommended consuming the caviar as soon as possible within 24 hours as off flavors can develop with exposure to air. Each tin has an expiration date on the bottom.
