Top review from Ian Gilman:

"A beautiful ester bomb with tons of tropical fruit and buttered popcorn. Not just regular popcorn but the exact aroma of movie theater style buttered popcorn. It isn’t super woody and I love that. Even more excited to try DOK… someday"

"Quite unspectacular on the nose, but what comes on the palate is great: fruity profile, supported by the dark notes, malt, coffee, cask,"

Top review from Kevin Sorensen 🇩🇰:

"#4622 23.02.2024 Relaxing at home warming up for the tasting at Whisky Watcher in Odense tomorrow. Nose Faint roasted wood, fruits, polish, light ester, vegetal. Palate Medium dry, light roasted wood, fruity, warm, polish, grass, light rubber. Finish Medium long to long, light wood, spicy, citrus, grass, light flowery. The empty glass has some light chocolate, cherry and sugarcane notes. Price to quality is pretty good in my mind."

Top review from X-Savior:

"On The Rocks: On the nose moderate sweet floral notes with some mild spice and oak. Taste reveals a very up front smooth spice with some fruit and floral notes that evolves into a mild whiskey and red wine undertone. This is such a beautiful example of a traditional Barbados rum that is incredibly smooth and complex. Finish is long with the sweet spice evolving into a mild treacle bitterness. An absolutely outstanding rum."

"Savory on the nose, viscous mouthfeel, sweet smoky fruity taste, long spicy finish. Like Foursquare offerings with a nice spice build"

Top review from Henry Davies:

"There is complexity here and it is a solid single cask rum but somehow it is lacking that special oomph. Nose is integrated with citrus, banana and a slight medicinal edge. Palate is light with again some banana but nothing too complex, with a warm and fairly short finish. Not my favourite of the HC offerings"

Holmes Cay • MHOBA
2017   4yr   59%   €€€

Top review from Frank:

"Vom ersten Mhoba an, liebe ich diese Destille, mit ihrem ganz eigenen Rum-Profil. Dieser hier reifte die gesamten 4 Jahre in einem südafrikanischem Whisky-Fass - vielleicht Bains? Nase: eindeutiges Mhoba-Profil, vergorene Früchte mit Honig und Joghurt. Überreife Banane und Papaya und leicht pflanzlich Richtung Olive. Auch dabei ist der typische Funk, der sich mit Frucht-Estern und Essig bemerkbar macht. Das Whisky-Fass bemerke ich hier ehrlich gesagt nicht. Aber, wie immer gut. 8,4 Gaumen: ja, jetzt zeichnet sich der Whisky doch ab. Der klassische Mhoba wirkt etwas gerstiger, gröber. Die Grundlage ist aber wieder vergorene Frucht und Honig mit leicht bitter-salzigem Antritt. Ester und Banane. Wirkt doch etwas trocken. Täuscht es mich oder kommt das im Abgang noch etwas Seife hinzu? 8,0 Tatsächlich gefällt mir das Whisky-Fass nicht so gut, auch wenn es dem üblichen Mhoba Geschmack eine deutlich andere Note hinzufügt."

Top review from BigFlax:

"For a molasses rum, it starts pleasantly grassy like an agricole, although it gets “darker” after some breathing time and begins to hint at burnt sugar. Some nice peppery spice notes with hints of nutmeg and a pineapple character. Medium length greener finish."

Top review from Abrahan Reyes:

"I think is 13 years no 14 as stated in rum x. Apparently is made in Grays Distilling. On the nose, it feels very floral with some mango and tangerine notes. On the palate, menthol, and peaches. The aftertaste is medium with some vanilla and some sweet bread hints."

Top review from Beancheese:

"What a wild ride this rum is. Right away the nose hit me with olive brine and nail polish remover, so much so that I almost couldn’t get past it. I could try to find other notes hiding behind there but it was just so overwhelmingly true to those two items that it felt like I was ‘trying’ to find something more. Both of these notes hold true and dominate on the palate as well, although this funky rum has a bit more going on. Behind the salty olive brine and acetone there was also permanent marker, a bit of something peaty or smoky, some mild licorice like spice. This was a wildly interesting way to sample my first rum from Reunion but I would never catch myself drinking this as a regular sipper. I think an imaginative mixer could make great use of this in a cocktail however and it is perfect for nerding out. I will score it 6.5 because it’s just not my palate if I was looking for something to enjoy sipping - but it’s so curious and fun that the ‘experience’ of trying it could be 8+"
