I thought 10 Cane first appeared around 2007.

I signed up for this forum after seeing this thread. I loved Ten Cane when I first found it sometime around 2005 as a new product in my local liquor store.

I loved the taste of it - reminiscent of the Turbinado 'Sugar in the Raw' packets. I suppose that was the molasses...

I picked up one of these new square bottles of Ten Cane and actually prefer the old formulation. It just didn't seem 'right' to me, but I have recycled many a bottle of the old Ten Cane.

It costs about $30 a bottle in my neck of the woods.

I also love Leblon.

It sounds like this 'Oronoco' may be something worth trying now that I have lost my beloved 10 cane to the new formulation.

Is there anything else the experts here may suggest that has that 'molasses' flavor without being sickeningly sweet?

Thanks so much!

I'm not sure about the molasses flavor in Ten Cane, that certainly wasn't their goal. It was supposed to capture the flavor of fresh cane.

Oronoco is very different from Ten Cane, but that has been reformulated since it was launched as well. the latest blend of Oronoco is made from highly distilled cane juice in Brazil, then blended with aged Jamaican rum. It's still pretty clear in the bottle.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.

Maybe molasses wasn't the correct term but the finish did remind me of those Sugar in the Raw packets, without the sticky sweetness. That is what I loved about it.

Glad to have found this forum - I look forward to broadening my horizons. Rum is my favorite liquor by far.
