10 Cane rum is named after the tradition of hand-harvesting and bundling sugarcane stalks in groups of ten. 10 Cane is produced in Trinidad from the first pressing of sugarcane. Most rums use molasses, a by-product of sugar manufacturing. 10 Cane's distillation process is overseen by Jean Pineau, the Master Distiller of Moët Hennessy. Pineau employs what has been described as an "artisanal" approach to rum making, particularly through small batch production process and high ingredient quality standards.
10 Cane rum is slowly fermented for five days at a low temperature, double-distilled in small batches in French pot stills, and finally aged in French oak barrels for ten months. This aging process gives 10 Cane its light golden color. 10 Cane Rum is one of the few rums focused on ingredients and primary production stages rather than maturation.
10 Cane is a pale gold, light bodied but full flavored rum with tasting notes of pear and vanilla. 10 Cane is often used to create smoother, more fragrant variations of traditional dark rum cocktails such as the Hurricane and the Dark 'n' Stormy.
Colour: Pale yellow
Smell: Not a lot of things to smell here..
Taste: Sweet, some fruits but harsh bite. Finishes with rough alcoholic bite.
This one is definitely a mixer. I sipped it and am probably giving it an unfair low grade due to that. This is a cane juice rum but doesn't remind me about the other cane juice rums I have tried so far at all. It might be good for a Mojito but I doubt it would be better than the Havana Club 3 Años that is way cheaper.
I rate it at 2/5 on a scale from 1 to 5 where 5 is best. It would be nice to try it as a mixer instead so if I ever find it at a good price I might buy it.
