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.

What I have is not the original Trinidad 10 cane. There are some fairly pleasant attributes, but also something artificial going on here, resulting in a sweet and slightly gummy mouthfeel. Mixer only, probably won't get again.

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.

Has a slight bitter flavor to me.

For the record, I always thought this was an Agricole but I guess not. At the liquor store where I work, we had a gigantic display bottle of this (filled with water) and I kept wanting to try the real thing. It was very eye catching (although upon retrospect, probably just because the display bottle was huge.) It seemed overly priced but we got 50ml bottles in and I gave it a shot (pun intended.) It was disappointing to say the least. It's not a bad rum but it didn't wow me considering its price point (about twice as much as the next light rum.) Perhaps it's my fault for having expectations. Either way, if you're eye-balling it, just go with Cruzan. It's better and cheaper.

This is not a sipping rum. A little light and not a bad mixer. It was a bit pricey and no longer made

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.

The best bottle of white style rum for me but still not me as I prefer dark and gold rum so that's quite a high score for a white rum for me .....

This is a tough one to review. It's neither a sipping rum, nor an affordable mixer. It's mostly overpriced for what it is.

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.
