„100% my type in scent. Little bit harsh for me in taste. But very nice in general.“

„Když jsem přivoněl, napadlo mě jako první, že to bude nějaké agricole z Martiniku…něco jako Depaz…cítím dřevo a ovoce..jako rozinky a taky něco jako zavařeninu nebo švestková povidla… V chuti cítím dřevo, rozinky..a také trochu alkoholovost, 60% je přiznaných, krátký hřejivý dojezd…ochutnal jsem několik Mhob a ani jedna nebylo zklamání..“

„In der Nase ist der Mhoba French Cask für mich relativ ähnlich zum Mhoba 101 Strand, die gleiche Knoblauch-/Trüffelöl Aromatik. Der Alkohol kommt hier beim Mhoba French Cask aber etwas stärker durch. Am Gaumen schiebt der Alkohol für meinen Geschmack dann schon ziemlich und könnte besser eingebunden sein. Mit etwas Zeit an der Luft und etwas Wasser wird das dann aber erträglicher und der French Cask öffnet sich mehr. Geschmacklich finde ich den Franchise Cask im direkten Vergleich einen Ticken raffinierter als den Mhoba 101 Strand. Beide aber haben recht ähnlich. Der Abgang ist mittellang.“
