Bien, voir trop équilibré et sage (manque peut-être un peu de folie pour un Mhoba) mais avec un minimum de puissance pour ne pas s'ennuyer. Ce Mhoba nous offre énormément de fruits (Banane / Coco / Mangue / Ananas / Fruits sec) une énorme gourmandise (Pâtissier brioche / Caramel au beurre / Chocolat / Noix grasse) sur des épices douces (Cannelle / Vanille / Poivre).On sent, sous tout ces arômes le petit côté canne a sucre avec du végétale (Foin / Vert) ainsi qu'une belle fraîcheur (Agrumes / Gingembre).Forte heureusement on a quand même en fond le côté empyreumatique de chez Mhoba (Solvant / Goudron / Caoutchouc). C'est dans l'ensemble vraiment très bon !

Ein sehr intensiver und prickelnder Mhoba! Ich bin immer wieder von dieser Distille angenehm überrascht! Ich bin gespannt, wenn in den nächsten Jahren mal ein lang gereifter Mhoba zur Verfügung steht! Prost an das Happy E(a)ster Team! Bislang eine sehr gute Wahl

Blindverkostung, #Easterweeks Tag 3: Nase: würzig, holzig, Ester, Gummi und ein paar tropische Früchte. Irgendwie dreckig. Caroni??? Ich kann es nicht wirklich zuordnen. Aber er schmeckt nicht "alt", passt also nicht mit Caroni. Gaumen: ähnlich wie die Nase. Viel Alkohol, der aber nicht stört. Habe auf über 60 % getippt. Im Abgang buttrig, aber immer noch dreckig. Banane und Holz verbleiben. Kein Plan, gefällt mir aber.

Für die kurze Reifung tolle Komplexität und tolle Fruchtigkeit.

#3 RumXHighE(a)ster weeks: Blind tasting: Fiji 🤔 5-10 years of aging approx. 55% low ester Unvaried/boring… Not a big fan of this one. As a simple sample it‘s a bit unvaried/boring. The finish is quite short and the alcohol is vanished without a trace. For me the 151 Strand is still the mhoba benchmark

RumX Ester Kalender Tag 3, blind. Spritzige Ester, Lösungsmittel und etwas dominanter Alkohol. Hier haben wir keine Abfüllung aus Jamaika. Eine leichte Nussigkeit paart sich mit einer Holzigkeit, die ich fast nicht als Holz erkannt hätte. Ein recht bekanntes Aroma bleibt auf der Zunge zurück, das der ein oder andere eher nicht so mag und schlechte Assoziationen auslöst(genauer wird es nicht 😛). Mhoba ist und bleibt mit jeder Abfüllung spannend, auch wenn mir nicht alle Zusagen. French Cask gehört wohl dazu, die Art der Holzigkeit gefällt mir nicht so sehr. Trotzdem macht mir Mhoba immer Spaß, da es andersartig ist und die Abfüllungen kontinuierlich besser werden. Eine schöne Bereicherung der Rum-Welt!

auch hier an der Nase blumige Noten, gepaart mit einer buttrig-lieblichen (Frucht-Joghurt) Note, wie ich sie auch schon bei anderen MHOBAs feststellen konnte.
