Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
10 Cane rum was founded in 2005 by Moët Hennessy and produced in Trinidad.
The 10 Cane production process includes twice distilling the first pressing of fresh sugar cane in copper pot stills, and then aging for up to 6 months in french oak barrels.
The rum's name - "10 Cane" - is derived from the tradition of harvesting sugar cane stalks by hand in bundles of 10.
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.
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.
One of the finest light rums I have ever had, hands down.
Excellent rum for a daiquiri
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.
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!
It's mellow and clean.
Good sugar notes with a touch of lingering sweetness. Easy to drink and mixes well.
Nice rum, would recommend you drink it with a splash of coke. Neat it is a bit Harsh but the coke smooths it out nicely. Coke not Pepsi.... Very enjoyable...
Surprenant et très agréable surprise. Un peu fort en alcool. Un peu d'aération lui fera du bien.
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
....no, wait....that was 10 cane.....
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.
But probably too expensive for what it is. Higher-end mixed drinks.
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.
Till now this is my favourite white-rum - even if it got a light gold color. Its smooth and perfectly spiced.
Being a cane rum, I expected this to be more like rhum agricole—it's not. In fact, it's rather sweet. I'm not sure whether to use this as a light, gold, agricole, or sipping rum... it can do a bit of each, but for me it falls somewhere between a light and sweeter gold rum.
As others have mentioned, it's a bit pricey, but it's also challenging to find decent light rums at most liquor stores. It's not a big stand-out (aside from the bottle design), but I can't find anything wrong with this rum, either. A solid choice if better-value rums (such as Plantation 3-Star or FdC 4) are unavailable. For the price, you should be getting something more interesting.
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.
Crisp and clean. IT almost has a grassy aftertaste. I enjoyed it!
If the term "mild" is applicable to a rum 10 Cane would wear it best. Picked up a bottle of this in the Bahamas a couple of months ago on the "cruise from hell" thinking, in my uneducated way, that this would be something to bring back that you can't get where I live. I was right about all the other rums I purchased but quite wrong about this one. Every single liquor store locally had bottles of 10 Cane on the shelf. Oh well. However that will change since apparently it is no longer being made according to multiple online sources. So if you are a fan of this rum, enjoy it while you can.
Definitely a good mixer and works well in Coke Zero. Subtle sweetness...very subtle IMHO. No noticeable aroma. The rum's color is a light yellowish hue.
UPDATE: Since this is one of the first rums I reviewed over 6 months ago and since I have learned much since then I thought I'd take another taste to see if my opinion has changed.
Still rating it a 7. Bit of sweetness on the outset with a noticeable oak tone to it. Not much of a burn but a nice warmth in the back of the throat. That oak tone lingers quite a bit but fading to a vanilla/toffee finish. I found out it not only is aged in oak barrels but it is made from pressed cane juice as opposed to molasses. However it is blended with molasses-based rum which might explain the initial sweet nature. Definitely a good mixing rum. This rum had the potential of being great but sadly it apparently is no longer being made.
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.
