Launched in October 2015, Matugga Spiced Rum is triple pot-distilled from fermented (for 7 days) East African sugar-cane molasses and aged in uncharred English oak casks to produce a golden Rum which is then combined with a blend of African black tea, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, vanilla and cardamom.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 31/05/2016

Appearance

Clear but not bright, mid-golden amber.

Aroma

Pungent and estery. Freshly sawn old oak, blackened fruitcake, raisins and sultanas with cinnamon, clove, vanilla and black pepper.

Taste

Fruitcake, treacle and bitter zesty orange with vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, warming cardamom and black tea. Faint medicinal notes of plasters and disinfectant – in a good way.

Aftertaste

Lingering blacked fruitcake with cinnamon, gingerbread and cracked black pepper.

Overall

Pungent and estery with blackened fruitcake and warming Christmassy spice.
