Another retasting with a few extra points. The glue is very clear on the profile, especially the nose. ----- Previous tasting ----- This is a lovely rum from Ten Cane and the price tag matches what you get. The nose is fruity with molasses and a mix of chocolate and wood. The palate is lightly dry, lightly bitter but well balanced. Wood, licorice, chocolate and cherries are mixed with nice caramel. The finish is long and lightly dry with wood and chocolate.

Incredibly good ten cane. Very elegant and drinkable, in contrast to my previous benchmark ten canes of duchess less complex and almost unusually sweet for this style but also extremely round and mild.

Quite intense and powerful. Have as first orange and fresh lemon in the nose, followed by spicy wood. Behind that, a soft sweetness of toffee resonates. The fruit is complemented by sour cherry and tart sweet currant. I also find something slightly floral in the direction of rose. A deep draught reveals some vinegar and dry red wine.Also strong and bitter-salty-dry on the palate, which carries through to the finish. Lemon or lime zest up front and sour cherry behind. He does not reveal much more to me at the moment.The nose is interesting and beautiful, but on the palate too bitter and one-dimensional for me....

After tasting the rum at the Romdeluxe booth at the 11th GRF, I had to get myself a bottle. Chocolate and cherry. My favorite combination. 😋

Alcohol and the citrusy bitterness are not so dominant here. Nevertheless, drinking it is not much fun for me.

Typical Ten Cane nose, alcoholic spiciness, and the wonderful aroma of ripe sour cherries and plums.Palate: fruit and sweetness flash briefly and then the cask and cocoa notes take over.The finish is very much on the bitter side.The 2008 Ten Cane bottlings are all very similar after all. This one is one of the most expensive so far - taste-wise there is no reason for it. Very good rum, good Ten Cane but no surprise. Price / performance only moderate.

Anfangs ist er an der Nase sehr verhalten und der Alkohol dominiert , aber nach einiger Zeit im Glas erscheint die Sauerkirsche und Schokolade- Kakaoaromen breiten sich aus! Am Gaumen erst eine kurze schwere Karamellsüsse bevor der Rum sich cremig verteilt und wieder Sauerkirsche das Ruder übernimmt! Dann erscheinen salzige Kakaonoten, begleitet von Piment. Metallisches mischt auch etwas mit… Im Abvang überwiegen dunkle schokoladige Aromen und lange gezogener Schwarztee! Ein sehr guter 2008er Ten Cane

A lovely Ten Cane, lots of wood and cocoa. I wouldn’t mind a bottle of this one in my stash.

Great nose in the sour cherry and cocoa dominate.In the mouth it arrives exactly as in the nose, but in addition there is a woody bitterness, which, however, does not override the fruit notes. And I don't know if I've ever drunk such a well-infused 64% before. - Edit: I would not have thought of it myself, but after reading the other reviews I can only confirm the kumquat note in the taste!In the finish, an exciting mixture of cocoa and salt that slowly disappears to expose the underlying bitter barrel notes, balanced by a pleasant sweetness still remain long in the mouth.

Neat Ten Cane without quite that certain something. Alcohol excellently integrated.

Another ten Cane this time one of the numerous romdeluxe bottlings from this year. That much sour cherry is recognizable here of course not surprising. The comparison is exciting and here I find the Romdeluxe simply more complex and exciting, is simply a bit dirtier 😊A pity that also this distillery no longer exists but the one or the other barrel will certainly still find the way to us RumFreunden.

TenCane is very different from most TDLs. This one had a very French Oak vibe with a typical acidic not. Not unlike Armagnac/cognac. Wood and dry tannins rule this palate. Some red fruits and cherry pop out. A very chewable dram.

Tasted at the 11th GRF and very enthusiastic. Spicy, full of character and just fun to have in the glass. Too bad there was Ten Cane only so briefly....

Tasted at the 11th GRF. Complex, round and lots of depth. A fantastic rum

Profile picture of user

Very intense, absolutely lovely on nose. Rich and complex. Lots of dried fruits and fresh, juicy fruits, red berry’s. Sweet, soft, minerals. Jam of plums, peach and prunes. Little bit bitterness when finish stars. Just a hint. First impression 85-86/100 Come back shortly to this bottle
