I also got this Caviar on CX 865 departing Vancouver on 30.Sep 02:20am.

I haven't taken First for a few months, but I think the previous brand of Caviar was better.

Not sure about the type... Sevruga, etc.

Unfortunately this caviar you guys mention isn't part of the "new" service. It's definitely a service cut, at least for now until the new F service rolls out.

It's touched on more in this other thread from a month ago: First Class Food and Beverage Discussion Thread. I haven't had it yet, but what the other posters said matches what I was able to find out about it online. The brand (which is just repackaging it) describes it as a perfect caviar to put on "canapes". Lol. I translate that to mean "our lowest quality caviar."

I complained about the Calvisius but in hindsight, appreciate what you have...

All bottles of wine labelled... Property of Cathay Pacific.
I believe this is labeled to help prevent theft and re-sale of these items.

What is the line on the back under "STURGEON ROE, SALT" and what language is it in?

Google is your friend. They are the biological names of two different types of sturgeon. Huso dauricus is Kaluga, Acipenser schrenckii is Amur (or Japanese) sturgeon. According to the producer's website, these roe are the product of hybrids between these two species.

Tried the new caviar last week. They were really bland and plain. Completely passable.

Did a background check and found the lovely origin.
