Anyone try this one yet?

Looks like a new product- made in Trinidad and sold by the Moet Hennessy people.

BevMo just got it in and it's retailing at $33.99. Looks quite nice.

They have a strange website at
www.10cane.com

I'd like to get some feedback before I plunk down that much.

Anyone?

How much is it with your employee discount?

Yes, pick me up a bottle with your employee discount and I will drink it and report on it.

That's enough from the peanut gallery.

Picked up a mini of this a week ago, and here's my review, for what it's worth.

Very smooth, but the taste was too "plain" for me. I guess I expected a little bit of complexity to it. At $30 a fifth here in Oregon, I wasn't impressed enough to put it on my "must buy" list. The mini cost $3.25...a little steep for a mini, but worth it if you want to try it without shelling out for a full bottle.

I'm not a rum connosieur, at least by TC standards, yet, but I tried it and it was quite fine. It mixed nicely and went down easily. I remember making great mojitos with it. It was rated no. 1 in a NY times article I mentioned in a post last year:

Last weekend, I was in a Maryland liquor store, and I saw that they had 10 Cane rum on sale - about $12/bottle cheaper than I previously paid for it.

So I decided to stock up, and bought the 4 bottles on the shelf. I also bought 4 other bottles of assorted liquor. When I went to the counter to checkout, I placed all 8 bottles on the counter, said 'You had one of my favorite rums on sale - I had to stock up", and absentmindedly signed the credit card slip when it was placed in front of me.

When I got home, I took a closer look at my receipt. It turned out that they had never charged me for the 4 bottles of 10 Cane.

I felt as I had just won the rum lottery.

I like 10 Cane quite a bit. The fact that it's made from virgin cane gives it a unique, kind of earthy flavor that's somewhere between Cachaša and white rum. In fact, I often use it to replace about 1/2 the Cachaša in my Caipirinhas.

I dig the 10 Cane quite a bit. An oz of 10 Cane and an oz of Rhum Clement makes for a damn tasty Menehune Juice. Now I've just gotta get a bottle of that Senior's Curacao that all the kids in California are going crazy about.

I agree, it is a very tasty rum and is great for mixing; however, the price down in Texas ($35) is what I us1ually spend on si+pping rum.

I tried it straight at the Kona Club last night and I really didn't like the sweetness, but I particularly didn't like the aftertaste. I don't get the hype. Try Orinoco instead if you want to try a new tasty light rum. Just my 2 cents, I don't mean to "jab" anyone.

One of the best things about 10 Cane is the way it smells. Pull the cork top off, and it smells wonderful.

I've tried 10 Cane straight up too, but I didn't care for it this way. But when I mixed it as part of my standard mai-tai recipe, it did add a whole new flavor, which I greatly enjoyed.

I'm also a sucker for the bottle design.

I stumbled upon their website about two years ago and thought it interesting. Then I was at Sam's in Chicago and they had it in stock. I should have bought some, but at the time my money was going toward Lemon Hart and John Taylor Falernum.

They still have it online:

Which Cachaca do you use in your caipirinha?
