Flawed with a glimmer of hope
If you're expecting liquid toffee and easy drinking, in my opinion this isn't that rum.
Those toffee notes are still there, but they're subdued under other flavours. Smoke and green leaves for me, and very much still carrying the taste and smell of new spirit. I hope they kept some of this back in the barrels for aging, because I would love to try this after 12-15 years of aging.
This isn't an easy sipping rum, but it is an interesting one. I was excited to try a Scottish rum and I think Matugga are one to watch for the future.
African commodities being processed in England into a premium rum. This is certainly a special story, so I was very interested in trying this one. It is not a bad beginning from Matugga.
Nose: Glazed lemons, honey and syrup
Taste: Rich caramel, vanilla and a slight peppery tingle in the background
Overall: This is not a bad rum by any means. The backstory for this rum is more interesting than the rum itself, but there is hope for the future for Matugga rum.
Schönes helles Honiggelb im Glas.
In der Nase extrem nach reifen tropischen Früchten, Passionsfrucht, Mango, etwas wie Weisswein und Holz.
Im Gaumen sehr weich und angenehm, gebranntes Karamell mit Zitrusfrüchten, Schokolade mit Birnen und etwas getoastetes Holz.
Im Abgang lang und ergiebig, Schokolade und Vanille klingen nach.
Ein gutgemachter interessanter Rum, ein Cross-Over von Agricole und Navy Stile. Ein Rum der sicher seine Freunde findet. 7+
Beautiful light honey yellow in the glass.
In the nose extremely ripe tropical fruits, passion fruit, mango, something like white wine and wood.
On the palate very soft and pleasant, burnt caramel with citrus fruits, chocolate with pears and some toasted wood.
In the finish long and rich, chocolate and vanilla finish.
A well made interesting rum, a cross-over of Agricole and Navy styles. A rum that will surely find its friends. 7+
Vůně ovocná až mi to připomínalo pálenku ( slivovice ) , i v chuti je ovocná část znát . Navíc je hodně cítit větší obsah alkoholu . Jinak je ale chuť překvapivě dobrá .
