Top review from Fasen :

"A bottle that is out of the ordinary, you have to like the power and the empyreumatic esters (Tar / Oil / Smoke) with a dose of greed (Pastry) and freshness (Vegetable / Fruits / Citrus).personally I love it, a killer!"

Top review from Gunnar Böhme "Bauerngaumen" 🤓:

"Can you make oil from berries? At any rate, this is the taste of Kirsch's Mhoba, finely balanced with a somehow high-quality solvent. Special, different from the typical Mhoba flavor range, but just as good. Update 2024-03-03: Have the rum in the glass again today while bottling for a split and simply have to rate it highly, because the alcohol is basically imperceptible on the nose and is entirely in the service of flavor transport on the palate. How can a rum that has been aged for less than five years be so good! Great art."

"#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 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 zabo:

"Edit: So now, how could it be otherwise, I've tried it as a mixer for a CubaLibre. It's really something different in the glass. I think it can really do something here. Simply delicious. But the points remain the same despite everything, no correction really necessary for me. Mhoba Night Was the last of the 6 different Mhoba. But the tastiest for me today."

"Gefällt mir von dem Gespann Umganu, Indlovu und Umbila am besten. Wer mit einem schönen, typischen Mhoba-Profil liebäugelt, aber die Ausgabe für drei Rums scheut oder den in Nase und am Gaumen wohlgefälligsten der drei haben möchte, sollte zum Umbila greifen. Die beiden anderen braucht man höchstens für einen Vergleich - und auch dafür reichen Samples vollkommen aus."

Top review from cigares :

"A rum tasted at the WLP. Nose of glue/solvents with earth and fruit in the background. The palate is quite lively, with a violent, earthy woodiness, but soon evolves into sweetness, smoke, fat and licorice. The finish is long on licorice and wood, followed by tropical fruit. The empty glass is rich and complex, a very fine rum with great expressiveness."
