10 Cane rum really fantastic!

I've long bemoaned the lack of good rum on the mass market. Besides Bacardi and Captain Morgan's, most markets don't have any light rum to choose among!

Recently, I started finding more choices for dark rum. Great for sipping, and for baking, but still not the same as the light rum necessary for a mojito or daiquiri.

Then, I found I could get Appleton Rum at better liquor stores, and that kept me happy for awhile.

Last week. I stumbled upon 10 Cane rum at the market. It was on sale for under $30, regular retail $35 at Beverages & More or $40 at a Ralphs/Vons/Safeway type market.

To make a long story short, I brought home this Hennessey Group creation and LOVED it!

10 Cane has the complexity of a good sipping spirit, like a great tequila. It has a sweet, bright nose and is smooth and delicate. It was almost a shame to mix it with anything, but we had some very tasty mojitos last Friday.

In a side by side sniffing comparison, Appleton suffered by comparison.
