“Mhoba is one of those rums with an original, unique and surprising profile. This rum is no exception: notes on the nose of undergrowth and mushrooms (not available in flavors of the application?) of earth and vegetal, spices and tropical fruits that mix with the more medicated, phenolic and chemical flavors that this rum usually offers. On the palate, the rum completely changes its profile, moving towards something more fruity (cherry, grape, apple, banana and citrus among others) with a floral, spicy and vanilla touch. The finish is very long, turning to fruity, vegetal and spicy notes. Intense and subtle at the same time, aromatic, greedy, very round and of a great complexity, this rum is a frank success.”

“Wow, this is exciting stuff! In the nose it reminds me first of a Jamaican, quite with esters but not High-Ester full throttle. In the mouth then the opposite, here the rum plays piano on the tongue and presses all the keys at once. Funky, fruity, medicinal, well amplified by the high and also quite present alcohol. Fun, but also requires attention and calm. Again discovered an exciting corner of the rum world, which I like very much!”
