10 Cane Trinidad Rum 750ml (Elsewhere $30)

SKU #1016747 90-95 points Wine Enthusiast

 A one- of-a-kind bouquet that includes aromas of cooked brown rice and broccoli, brown sugar, raw cane, brine, soy sauce and vanilla bean. The palate entry tastes of bittersweet sugar cane; at midpalate the taste becomes more sophisticated, silky, honey sweet and lightly spiced. Concludes nicely bittersweet, a bit cocoa-like, and beany  (12/ 2005)

K&L Notes

Contracted at Angostura distillery in Trinidad by booze giant LVMH, 10 Cane Rum is one of the most unique rums on the market due to its composition of both agricole and traditional molasses-based rums. Agricole rum is much grassier and intensely herbal due to its distillation from fresh sugar cane juice, while molasses rums tend to be much mellower and sweeter when aged in sherry. The agricole component of 10 Cane is aged for one year in used Hennessy Cognac barrels, while the molasses rum sees sherry butts for between 4-7 years. The two are then married together to create a rum that's light and flavorful enough to mix, but soft and mellow enough to sip. It's the ultimate one-stop shop for those looking for a rum that does it all.

Light and lively compared to its darker counterparts, this is the idea rum for using in fruit based cocktails.

This light rum from Trinidad is fine for mixing and uses fresh pressed cane instead of molasses. Aging for 1 year in french oak, it has a light golden hue. A refined and low intensity style different from many other "agricole" rums.
