“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.”

“Nach den ganzen positiven Kritiken, habe ich diesen Mhoba gegen meine Referenz von HV 2017 im Cross-Tasting im Glas. Für mich ist dieser ein atypischer Mhoba und fällt gegenüber dem HV deutlich ab. Die klassischen Aromen und Komplexität fehlen mir hier. Das ist wahrlich ein sehr guter Rum, aber kein echter Mhoba für mich”

“Und noch ein Mhoba, der 4. in 4 Tagen. In einem Woodfort Fass nachgereift und tatsächlich hat das Fass einen deutlichen Einfluss. Nase: Bourbon! ist mein erster Eindruck, gefolgt von einer angenehmen, holzigen Würze. Eine feine Tabak-Rauch-Note und ein Hauch Marzipan legen sich darüber. Dahinter steht eine buttrige Toffee-Karamell-Süße. Jetzt kommen auch die Früchte zur Geltung, reife Banane, Papaya und säuerliche Maracuja mit Zitrone. Ein tiefer Zug holt noch Essig hervor. Schöne Mischung aus den klassischen Mhoba-Profil und intensivem Bourbon. 8,5 Gaumen: kräftig holzig-würzig. Auch hier finde ich den Bourbon Einfluss deutlich. Adstringent und bitter zu Beginn, dann kurz Marzipan, bevor leichte Ester und dann schließlich süß-saure Maracuja und Zitrone durchkommen. Hinten eine leichte Tabak-Note. Schöne Geschmackskurve, etwas zu viel des Bourbons. Aber sonst gut. 8,2”
