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.
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.
not the best for sipping, it works well in a mix, slightly yellow rather than gold, once swallowed it's gone without leaving much in the way of taste, non the less drinkable.
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.
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.
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.
