This was an interesting one. The nose is relatively muted, but comes to life on the mouth. Lacks the normal Mhoba elements of tropical rotting fruit and leads with something more whisky like, with venison and biltong notes at the back of the mouth - not something you find often. The smoke is reminiscent of a Laphroaig or similar but more BBQ in nature and builds as if you have inhaled BBQ smoke. In terms of taste it’s not perfectly balanced, with some red wine notes alongside the meat and smoke. I don’t love it but can appreciate the experimentation and glad to have tried

C’est une expérience ! Mais pas à mon goût 😳 J’avais préféré la version 2021 a celle de 2022 de la rhum Society

Haaa, le nez est atypique. C'est un mélange entre jus de canne, fumées et BBQ. C'est plutôt étrange mais intriguant (positivement). En bouche, les 55% font le boulot, c'est chaud comme de la braise. On retrouve des notes bien lourdes et viandeuses : du bacon bien grillé, de la viande sortant du fumoir, c'est salé et très aromatique. La finale est très longue sur le cendré-brûle. On retrouve également une petite touche de banane flambée en dessert. Je ne sais pas ce que Mhoba a bien pu faire pour tirer ce profil aromatique, mais c'est sacrément surprenant et réussit.

Very unique dram. Funky high esther spirit with dry smoky braai wood and a vegetal/greenhouse taste (like the a-typical 2000s Clynelishes). I never tasted anything like this before and its weird...but its good weird you know.

Krásná vůně Spáleného dřeva, trochu mi připomíná Jamajku, v chuti též - alkoholovostí…ale zakončení je uhlazenější…Píšu si to do wishlistu…

On the nose a nice surprise. On the palate my first impression was too much smoke. Don’t like too smoky flavours in my drink. But after a few sips it mellowed out and became more pleasant.
