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.
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.
I'd been looking for an everyday Trini rum. I love my Angostura 1919, but I've been hoping for something to drink casually. Found this one on sale and, only too late, realized it is an entirely different category than the fine 1919. Do you need a gold rum for mixing in quality drinks? This is your bottle.
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.
One of the finest light rums I have ever had, hands down.
A go-to for rum and cokes at airports, usually the only brand available there beyond the usual big name brands
Has a slight bitter flavor to me.
This is a very good light rum. I started drinking it straight, but find it very good for mojitos or anything that calls for a light rum.
Excellent rum for a daiquiri
A good choice for daiquiris and punch. Made from select first press cane juice, aged up to 6 months in oak, this premium white rum is double distilled for an uncommonly light and smooth flavor, produced by one of the great French distillers.
but has some rough edges. Adds interesting flavors to mixed drinks.
It's mellow and clean.
Adds a nice change to the basic mojito without adding fruit
