Sometimes the time, place or stress of the day can define one's liking for a rum and this maybe the case for me. I thought 10 Cane in Diet Coke was sweet and easily consumed leading to a fun time for all.
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!
the bottle and a steep price ($35 for a fifth) prepare you for something extraordinary. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. Light and smooth, but too simple, not enough depth. No mystique, no depth, no drama.
This is not a dark or white and has a very unique taste. Not sweet, firm on the tongue, and not all that smooth, but I still enjoy 10 Cane for an average Cuba Libre. The bottle is also unique.
This is an interesting blend of 90% agricole and 10% molasses rums. Good as a better quality mixing rum, perhaps a little too simple for a sipper.
This review is for the Barbados bottling. This bottling is quite smooth overall. I did not detect much sweetness on this but rather just a clean rum experience. There are many better rums out there for flavor but this is a clean rum without many edges.
The nose is light and runs between ethanol and aceton with a hint of rum.
The taste is sugar and alcohol. Which finishes in raisins. It´s a fun sipping rum and i think it will make one hell of a mojito.
You can certainly smell the sugar when you pop this one open. I like my rum on the rocks, granite rocks, so as not to dilute the taste. Not the best I've had, but not the worst for sure. I like it in place of desert - it's that sweet.
This rum is not expensive, so if I should take the price element into account I would actually give it 8.
I like the smooth taste with the hints of vanilla with a finish of sweet oak. Definitely a good non aged rum.
I'd describe the flavor as smooth and similar to a very light Jamaican rum. I enjoyed this both straight and then in a rum and tonic. Have to agree with others that at full price it seems a bit pricy although I found a 200 ml. bottle on sale and gave it a try I was not disappointed. Would recommend for drinks when a light to moderate rum flavor is wanted.
It's either, I was having a bad day or the 40% alcohol (80 proof) they write on the bottle is a misprint. From the looks of some of these other reviews, probably the latter is true. Anyway, I have had 10 Cane straight up, on the rocks, in a daiquiri, in a mojito and six ways to Sunday, but I always feel the same about it. Marketing won't make this rum taste better, only lime, simple syrup and ice.
Even though it's made by Moet Hennessy and they portray it in ads with Trinidadians hanging out on boats dancing to slow jams, it doesn't taste easy or fun. It could definitely be smoother, and more complex given the relationship. It's one of the few gold rums (of which I haven't had many, so I can't compare), but Trinidad has better rums. Do yourself a favor, and only buy this if you want to get tipsy on a rum in the $20 to $25 range; otherwise, buy a bottle of rhum from the French West Indies to get that cognac taste.
I could not drink it with cola or straight. Could definitely taste potential, just not among my common mixers. I suspect it would be best mixed with other alcohols and fruit juices as it seems to be missing something.
Paid lots for this to be mixed with coke at an event in San Diego. It wasn't my favorite and I would not choose it unless it was aged. I would not consider this smooth by any means.
I dont like the color, and again I was left a little disappointed. But I did find its good in a Mai Tai or punch, or even with coke zero. Its a good bar drink. Just a bit over priced for what it delivers.
