Introducing the FAQ Plastic Rum, produced at the MHOBA distillery in South Africa and selected and bottled by Velier. This limited-release rum, with only 1445 bottles, was distilled in 2017 from sugar cane juice using a pot still and aged for four years, boasting an ABV of 64.3%.

“Rating confirmed from 5 months ago: 88 points.In the nose raspberry jam (and nicotine?). Hard to distinguish from a Clairin. On the palate, the South African seems round, deep and powerful, that's how it should be. Fine stuff, awesome shit - keep it up, Mhoba! 👏”

“Second tasting: very good Jamaica Funk from Africa ( 1)Unusual nose, even for Mhoba: very fruity, fermented at the same time and many other flavors in a previously unknown combination to me... I like excellent.The palate can unfortunately not quite keep up and the aftertaste is relatively short only the fermented fruit and the butter note remain very long.Great new experience and for the output price top price performance! Meanwhile, unfortunately, much too expensive, if you can get at all.”
