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 this years ago on a recommendation from a friend for an Agricole rum to try. Agricoles arent really my thing. I prefer bigger English style rums. I found it a bit hot not as flavorful as ide like.

This rum was a bit over prices when I got it and I did not care for the harsh flavor. I ended up using this as a mixer rum that I wouldn't wait to be finished with.

Iโ€™ve had this a few times and have not been impressed. I would use this only as a mixer. Has a harsh flavor alone and needs to be cut.

Use it mainly for mix. Not my favorite for sipping.

Not overly complex but also how alcohol burn/flavor

Not at all complex. Not smooth. The "bite" is much to forward. A little vanilla and orange in there but not enough. Unbalanced. Poor finish. Not a sipper. Might make a very good mixer but you can get those for less money.

10 Cane from Trinidad. #141 of 500. It's been a while, haven't had any new Rum to review. Well, 10 Cane is a very soft Rum on the nose, a very subtle Rum bouquet with a hint of Vodka, and a little flowery. On the pallet you first sense vanilla, then caramel, notes of orange and only a slight bitterness. There's a noticeable pepper in the mouth, but not overwhelming. On the throat it's very clean, it disappears, in contrast to the pepper you sense in the mouth. A nice Rum indeed. 8 out of 10. Straight up, Yum

Iโ€™m not a big white rum or white wine drinker, but enjoyed this a few summers ago with lime neat and with soda water Reminded my of La Mauny from Martinique, very easy to drink and nice botanical flavors.

Found the Trinidad version in a variety store for $20. Bought 3. Drank 2 immediately. Excellent all around rum. I feel like I found gold.
