10 Cane and Adidas sponsored a Los Angeles business soccer "tournament" last weekend. Many hip non-profs and businesses participated, like KCRW the local NPR station, collector sneaker shops, mid-century boutique hotels and youth-oriented production companies. 10 Cane had an open bar throughout the whole event, serving two drinks: Mojito's or Dark n' Stormy's. Having free booze was nice although it seemed to contradict the efforts of a sportman's pursuit, but I couldn't help but cock my head a little at the recipes.

10 cane Mojito:

1/8th slice of lime, virtually non-existent
mint, muddle both
seemingly endless, unmeasured pour of sugar syrup
unmeasured pour of 10 Cane
Canada Dry ginger ale

before the bartender began, he asked me "traditional Mojito or new style."
I asked for a traditional, then after watching him pour this little concoction I looked around for the guy who might've ordered the "new style."
Nope, this baby was for me, in all its traditional glory.

It tasted like sweetened ginger ale. They were also doing a strawberry version.

Then, I watched him mix a dark n' stormy (i'm not even sure they were calling it that), which I tried not to pay attention to. They were using Jamaican Ginger beer which was good to see but then there was no dark jamaican rum, only ten cane, and some fresh ginger? I stopped watching, turned my attention to the soccer game, and didn't order another drink. Sometimes I wonder why bartending and recipe finding is like a rocket science that even a rum company can't figure out? I was amazed. all that sugar syrup in a rum that is supposed to be super-premium. "Yeah, other rums use molasses, we don't do that" one rep told me. Super! Where's the oversized bottle of corn syrup again?

I've just recently been introduced to 10 Cane, and I have to say, it's by far the smoothest rum I've ever had. I attended the adidas Event, and the 10 Cane Mojitos were excellent in my opinion...I especially liked the strawberry one.

I've always considered the Ten Cane to be overpriced for what you get. Normally in Massachusetts and New Hampshire it's about $33-$36, and it's just not worth that much IMHO. I've been looking for a nip so that I could taste it again and review it, but haven't been able to find one.

But last week I stumbled into a liquor store in Boston and snagged a bottle for $19. Now that price makes Ten Cane worthwhile.

Traditionally my drink of choice for summer is a cool refreshing mojito. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find a top-shelf rum. I recently tried 10 Cane Rum at the AdiCup soccer tournament in Santa Monica, CA. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at how smooth the rum tasted in both the regular mojitos and the strawberry mojitos.. My search for the perfect rum is over!!

I am not a big fan of 10 Cane, it is much more marketing than product in my opinion.

But, it is a nice rum, and in Henessey's defense... They may have had 'good' recipes to work from but that doesn't mean those recipes actually made it all the way down the line to the actual bartenders. Maybe the guy making yours was the sub, or maybe he didn't bother to actuall read the recipe provided, or maybe a bunch of other things......

For those of you finding a deal on it (less than $25 a bottle) you should get some. I have the luxury of having the minis available in my area so I can play with it without having a whole bottle sit on my shelf taking valuable space from something I like better.

I love the stuff, particularly in Daquiris and modified Caipirinhas. The local wine/cigar shoppe has the minis on sale, so I picked up a couple of bottles this afternoon.

I heartily agree on all points. It is not a bad rum - it is very good, just seriously overpriced. $25 a bottle is closer to value. As I mentioned earlier, I managed a bottle for $19 and that is in the bargain category for any rum this good. But $37? No thanks.

I'm a big fan of Ten Cane Rum. It's not as good as Bacardi Silver, but it's quite good in its own right.

???
If it's not even as good as Bacardi Silver it must be truly awful.

Once I did a backyard project that took several days and I drank can after can of Mountain Dew. One time I accidentally picked up a can that I had left out in the hot sun for a couple of days. It was flat, boiling hot, and full of ants.
That can of soda tasted better than Bacardi Silver.

I placed an order for gouged bassoon cane from Tony at allbassooncane.com in mid April. At the end of May, I sent him several emails to check the status of the order, but he never responded to my messages. He also did not respond to the voice mail I left on his phone. Has anyone else had trouble either receiving an order from Tony or contacting him in the past couple of months?

Thanks,
Jessica Steven

I have been trying many rums lately and 10 cane is just not good straight up for me. As others have said in a mojito great!
