“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.”

“A rum tasted at the WLP. A nose of glue/solvent, tempered by the presence of fruit. Quite smooth on the palate, with smokiness, fruit and a hint of slightly sweet ostia. A very different rum from Indlouu, a little bland in direct comparison.”

“Heute mal ein kleiner Vergleichstest zwischen den neuen Mhobas New Vibrations. Als Fazit für mich ist festzuhalten, dass mich nicht wirklich einer der 3 Abfüllungen restlos überzeugen konnte. Mein Ranking wäre jedoch 1. RX17377 2. RX17378 3. RX17376”
