“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.”
