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.
