Rum - Silver
10 Cane Rum
This is a Tier 1 score in the Rum category. It means the spirit has won the highest recommendation at least once and probably many times.
Launched in 2005, 10 Cane rum from Trinidad is made from the "first press of the virgin sugar cane." The label goes so far as to say these canes are hand-selected and handled "ever so carefully." It is purportedly the best rum ever seen on earth. The rum is lightly aged in French oak. In the spring of 2011, 10 Cane was reformulated. Instead of being a pure sugar cane juice rum (rhum agricole) it is now a blend of rhum agricole and aged molasses rum. It seems the ratio is about 90% sugar cane juice and 10% molasses rum. (From Refined Vices.) In 2013, Trinidad-based Angostura--who originally produced 10 Cane--opted not to renew the contract with French-based Moet-Hennessy and production was moved to the Foursquare Distillery in Barbados (from Guardian Media).
