„In direct comparison to the duchess ten cane 2008/2019, less fruit, less floral notes and more spice and more wood and cardboard and caramel are noticeable here on the nose. Taste again a bit sweeter than its predecessor, almost burnt caramel, cassis jelly, dark chocolate, artichoke leaves, candied ginger, cinnamon bark and fruit bread. Then more wood, tannins and dark chocolate and peach iced tea on the finish. Partly reminiscent of good XO cognac. Definitely makes at least as much fun as its predecessor, though very different. The alcohol is surprisingly well incorporated here and also the wood dominates here not at all .Grandiose bottling again times from the house Duchess!💯Hard to decide which is better of the two here!😅“

„2nd tasting: remains very interesting, precisely because of its corners and edges.Very intense. On the nose a lot of wood, dark fruit and nicely spicy. Something slightly biting like polish. Then again nicely fruity. The longer it stands, the more intense it smells. Makes fun. Great nose. On the palate first alcoholic, then briefly bitter to burnt (the burnt remains in the finish). Then berries, a slight sweetness, like caramel and again lots of wood, pleasantly spicy. With slight deductions in the taste overall an exciting and great rum.“

„After a quarter bottle it is still a top rum. Am thrilled.This Duchess is clearly woody and toasty than its predecessor and much heavier than the RdL bottlings from the Collectors Ed.Only behind glue and the burnt spices the cherry and berry comes to the fore - rather red fruit jelly than fresh fruit. Plus some polish and cardboard.In the mouth the berries are more present and even riper, as in an old Tempranillo, plus dark chocolate, crumbly tannins, the spice and artichoke and beet? The finish is super relaxed and the alcohol integration, which has been the weak point of all 10 Canes, is much better in this one!Minimal criticism: Unfortunately, the rum lacks the citrus facet that has distinguished the other 2008s.“

„#4138 The price tag on this bottle at release was really good. A complex yet very nice rum with fruits and spices. The roasted wood is strong in this I've without being dominant. Love the dark colour and thick curtains in the glass. The empty glass is really nice and has some chocolate and faint rubber to it.“

„My first Ten Cane. It was a blind sample and I would have guessed a well matured Agricole in the Saint James-Damoiseau-Bielle triangle.Deep color.On the nose a nice composition of cocoa powder, ripe bananas, oscillating 🤣 fruits (cherry, raspberry, citrus etc) and nice wood maturity. Alcohol perfectly integrated. Ripe, warm and yet fresh.In the mouth then a bit crisperand it continues what was promised in the nose.Very good rum, interesting and a nice surprise. Thanks to Bonn for the sample!“

„This Ten Cane is definitely one of the better of its kind!But so right he does not pick me up.... the wood and this burnt note dominate me too much! The fruit is too restrained for me in contrast and comes out only after some time! This is a rum that needs or needs its time in the glass and on the palate!You have to deal with him intensively and get involved!Today tasted for the 2nd time, my first impression was confirmed .“

„first needs quite a while until everything unfolds, but then come beautiful red fruits and fruit bread. Accompanied by old barrel and cherry wood, dark chocolate and furniture polish. The palate is spicy-woody, also significant alcoholic spiciness. Lots of wood barrel, tannins and clove on the finish. If you think that's it, then comes out the back but again a note in the direction of Haribo cherry cola 😜 In direct comparison, the 11er is a touch lighter, a little less on the woody track.“

„Ist mir heute etwas zu holzig im Geschmack. Ansonsten sehr lecker. Bracht vielleicht eine zweite Chance. Nachverkostung: Heute ist er mir gar nicht zu holzig, im Gegenteil. Gibt gleich einen Extrapunkt.“

„Needs a few minutes in the glass to open up and come off the wood a bit, but worth the wait.Explosion and fruit and spice. Slightly burnt at the same time. Exciting composition. Am curious how he does in comparison. Then there may be even 2 points more 😁“

„Un agricole un peu spécial. Sombre, avec beaucoup de tannin de bois brûlé de fruits rouge/noir caramélisé un peu caoutchouteux. L'alcool est un peu trop présent en début de dégustation mais après un certain temps le rhum devient très intéressant,riche, profond, il s'adoucît et dévoile tout son potentiel. La finale est éternelle et gourmande. Très belle découverte !“

„This needed a lot of resting in the glass to reveal more than just burnt sugar and seabreeze. After an hour, it opened up beautifully into a slick and incredibly concentrated profile. On the nose, upfront with burnt sugars, black cherries and barrel char. Then dried fruits and orange zest. Followed by mixed spices; foremost cinnamon and cloves, but also slight juniper and ginger notes. 75%+ chocolate. A complex heart of hot glue and coriander. On the palate excellent maturity. Very woody, charred and intensely spicy. Arid. Black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, juniper, ginger, light licorice, nutmeg… Black cherries, orange peel, dried fruits and their accompanying tannins. Dark chocolate leading into a bitter finish. The finish is reasonably lasting, “wine-y”; tannic and bitter. There’s dried fruits and more cloves driving this home. It’s a very heavy rum. I would expect this to be polarising, not appealing to all palates.“

„Just horny. In the nose very concentrated and the fruit was already very captured by the barrel. On the palate then just horny. Very heavy and super complex, the alcohol is very well integrated. Makes really fun if you like it dark. The finish is already fun because very astringent. But hardly becomes peppery. Hence the high rating. I like it very much. Best Ten Cane I've had ... so far.“

„Heavy, bold Rum. Very ‘meaty’. Much red berry’s, black currant, prunes. It’s very interesting. “Smoked, baked berry’s”. Lots of raisins coming out. Very concentrated juice. Palate are very good. There is something common with cognacs, but more concentrated. Again dried prunes.“
