lovers, listen up: here is a brand new rum that’s
not from a newbie spirit maker. The liquor division of the
luxury brand conglomerate LVMH, Moët Hennessy USA,
pulled out all the stops to bring you a fresh, crisp, light
and almost-clear rum.
with the tradition of absorbing an established prestigious
brand, the company built this rum from scratch. After growing
their own sugar cane in the fields of sunny Trinidad, they
set up shop using imported Charentaise
pot stills and Limousin oak barrels to age the rum. Only
pure sugar cane juice is used for this rum—not leftover
like with other brands. The cane juice undergoes a long
six-day fermentation and double distillation to create its
potent but smooth taste.
this a terroir rum in that its fresh natural ingredients
bring out the rum’s best flavors. Neat on the nose,
this spirit suggests flavors of vanilla, typical of sugar
cane. A hint of sweetness lingers on the palate during its
long finish, which carries flavors of sugar cane and oak.
Although 10 Cane is one of the few rums that could be consumed
alone, we also liked it in a daiquiri or mojito, where the
rum elevates the taste of the cocktail.
