MHOBA American Oak Aged

$88.00

This rum is made purely from the fresh juice of our own Nkomazi sugarcane, grown on the MHOBA Sugar Estate, near the small village of Malalane in South Africa. The rum is made by ageing the distillates from our unique, self-built, artisanal pot stills. This rum is initially aged in large glass demijohns with American white oak staves which we cut and char on wood-fire coals at the distillery. Our “Glass Cask” rum is then transferred to ex South African whisky casks for secondary maturation.
Nose: Charred wood. Smoke. Caramel. Vanilla. Burnt wooden splints. Light sweet grain notes. Bonfire embers and powdered sugar. Warm fudge. Black pepper and pencil shavings.
Aroma: Heavy, drying oak. Damp cardboard. Grilled smoked meat. Warm charred timber. Memories of woodwork classes at school. Butterscotch.
Palate: The mid palate brings a slowly growing coffee influence. Dark chocolate. The charred embers of a fire on the beach. The dry and medium length finish is all dominant oak, light vanilla and powdered cocoa with lingering charred, smoked wood that grows increasingly bitter.
