Classic Transmontanus Caviar, is similar to the Royal, but smaller and darker gray. It was heralded as "both bold and lush" by Departures magazine. Tins cost between $55-$225 (1.06 ounce to 4.4 ounces).

Larger tins (up to 35.2 ounces) may be ordered 48 hours in advance.

The caviar is imported by Petrossian, which introduced caviar to Paris the 1920s.
