I think this Rum is one of the best I've had there is a few very nice rums out there I think this is one of the best.
Very smooth, summery and light.

One of the finest light rums I have ever had, hands down.

This rum is fantastic for a light rum. It used to be from trinidad and tobago but is made now in barbados and it became hard to find because of this reason. Love how smooth it is and it makes very nice mojitos enjoy!!

A nice cost effective mix to keep on the shelf. Shoot straight with a squirt of lime and you'll have a good time.

Excellent rum for a daiquiri

Posted over 3 years ago by DAMITJOE from United States with 7 ratings

Tasty clean cane Rum, one finger neat, or two fingers with a piece of ice, a very small squeeze of lime and a generous slice of lime peel. Say three Hail Marys and consume, repeat for each decade of the Rosary. Avoid your wife, but if you happen to see and (heaven forbid), you say something to her, make sure the last round has one dash of bitters, and say an act of contrition. She won't forgive you but Our Lord will. Think of it as penance, or an indulgence.. You'll get less purgatory time.

Definitely not a sipper! It added a new layer of flavor to my Cuba Libra that was more developed than a Bacardi Gold, not sure if I could justify this as my mixer rum on a regular basis, will stick to my Don Q Crystal for that. My rating of 8 is based on it next to other mixing rums only!

As the song goes: It's fresh, fresh, exciting. It's so exciting to me. Fresh and lovely, like a dream come true. I'd do anything to spend the night with you. Um... maybe not the last part. It's nice in drinks when you don't want a prominent rum flavor, since this leans towards light and clean.

This rum is really different than any other rums I've had. It's not really dark or light enough to go with cola (for example, either Kraken or Bacardi). It's pretty good on the rocks since it has soooo much flavor. There's definitely a lot going on. It's a little vanilla-y, a little oak-y, and almost a little herb-y. It's not as smooth and it's a little harsh, which makes me think it would go well in a really nice cocktail.

I have not found a bottle of this in a few years. I remember how unique it was and how smooth it was going down. I usually drank it on the rocks. Being so smooth, it was very easy to knock away a whole bottle in one day, and with no penalty whatsoever the next day.

Let's just say that it is a modified agricole or cachaca without any matching tastes to those, nor does it have any additives. It is a light gold colored white rum, so yes, it does have an identity problem, which is maybe why I liked it so much. It was light years better than mass produced mixers and at about $30 per bottle, it was too expensive to use as a mixer. Also, when consumed on the rocks, there was no hangover the next day, which is probably another reason that I like it.

As others have said, this is best described as an expensive mixer, which is probably why it is so hard to find these days. I do believe that it has been discontinued. But if I saw a bottle on the shelves, I would gladly buy out whatever few they had left.

I had such low expectations that I was blown away. Solid rum for most drinks. Straight up with a orange and sugar candy is a sweet summer drink.

It's mellow and clean.

This is my go to for Mojito's.On the rocks it's a bit stiff but till doable but, again, this is my Mojito Rum all the way!

Posted over 3 years ago by Wayne Upton from United States with 136 ratings

But probably too expensive for what it is. Higher-end mixed drinks.

Posted over 4 years ago by Nicholas Miller from United States with 75 ratings

This is an incredibly simple review because there is nothing complicated about this one. It smells like alcohol, vanilla and faint oak. That's about as basic white rum it gets. Tastes like.... basic white rum, vanilla and alcohol with some hint of oak on the plus of this is there is no bite with this one. It's as simple as it gets, however the 29$ a fifth price turns me away from this. I will stick to Appleton estate white which is about 10$ a fifth and identical to this.

Surprenant et très agréable surprise. Un peu fort en alcool. Un peu d'aération lui fera du bien.

This is one of the better rums I enjoyed. But, I can't find it in NY anymore. Anyone know what happened?

un ron de calidad en su elaboracion campesina me encanta para mezclar de sabor final en caña su elaboracion en barril frances le aporta su valor

From reading the description I was expecting something with more of a vegetable like taste, like a rhum agricole or a cachaca. It has a sweet but clean aroma with hints of lilac and honey, and a smooth taste with a hint of orange peel and very little burn. Not a lot of flavor as a sipper, but would be great on ice with a twist of lime, or in a fruity cocktail like a classic daiquiri.

Crisp and clean. IT almost has a grassy aftertaste. I enjoyed it!

Good sugar notes with a touch of lingering sweetness. Easy to drink and mixes well.

Till now this is my favourite white-rum - even if it got a light gold color. Its smooth and perfectly spiced.

Made with cane juice, symbolic of Agricole rhums and cachaca's, though not what Trinidad rums are known for. I find this straw colored rhum to be a bit on the harsh side. When you think of Trinidad rums, you often associate it with the Angostura line or Zaya. However, Afrohead, Kraken, Monkey and Cane rum with Plantations inclusion as well.
I find that if you are looking for a rum from Trinidad and Tobago, the 10 Cane is not the best choice. Moreover, if your looking for Agricole rhum, Martinique is the way to go.
10 Cane has been discontinued, I believe which is why it is difficult to find anymore.
