Top reviews for Ten To One Caribbean Dark Rum:

— Top notch rum! Very different from our traditional rum brands. A certified clean rum on the rocks or poured neat. I am beyond impressed. Will be ordering again!

— This is what Rum should be! Found my drink.

— I'm really not a rum drinker but I just got this as a gift from a friend and can't believe how good it tastes. I was instructed to try Ten To One Dark Rum in place of whiskey in an old fashioned and was told it would be life-changing. It was. Will definitely order when I run out!

Steve,
I was expecting a typical rum flavoring here but was surprised. I like bourbon also and this definitely has that profile strongly in it. If you like sweet smooth rum, then you may not like this. If you like bourbon but think rum is too sweet, this might be for you. It caught me off guard but I do enjoy it.

Very smooth and sweet rum.

Brandon,
It's smooth compared to other 7-10 year rums. For the price it's decent. Other reviews are saying is was very dry, I didn't find it dry at all. I did taste the leather, honey-crisp apple, and what tasted like super dry lemoncello. It worked well as the third Rum in my Mai Tai (Rhum JM Blanc, Smith & Cross, and Ten to One). The oaky/leather is all that comes through when mixed.

Marcus,
I’ve never been a really big rum drinker, I’m more of a whiskey aficionado. I mainly only drink rum on vacation but I decided to venture out and try a few new spirits, looking for something that would go well neat or over rocks without any added mixers or sugary stuff to affect the flavor. I give the dark rum by Ten To One a chance and it’s a winner for me. Not sure what it would be like in a cocktail (I’m terrible at cocktails), but having it with a large cube reminds me of a smooth whiskey and not something I’d order on vacation at a tiki bar. Haven’t really had anything else in the rum world to give me a flavor profile like this. I’d recommend it to any folks out there looking to venture into a sprint they maybe haven’t tried before.

Courtney,
I absolutely loved this rum!! I am not usually a rum drinker but this rum was super smooth, full of flavor and just delicious. I will definitely buying this product again.

Jared,
Pretty good dark rum. Starts quite smooth and finishes fairly dry. The banana nut aroma and flavor is quite pleasant. There are better rums out there but I don't think you can go wrong with this one.
 
Sarah
Sarah,
Not our favorite. In a blind taste test I think I would have identified it as a whiskey even more than a rum. It was sharp, not smooth. There are several dark rums I prefer over this one.

John,
Never been into rum, I typically drink whiskey. However, I wanted to branch out and try new things. This is not exactly what I expected and is OK at best. I would not buy again.
 
Bill
Bill,
Has a nice bite to it. Not overly sweet like a lot of dark rums. Will definitely buy it again👍🏴‍☠️
 
Frederic
Frederic,
Great flavor. For people that want to be into whiskey but aren't there yet, this is a very good "transition" rum. Will definitely be my go-to rum for a while.
 
Bryan
Bryan,
Solid dark rum. Good flavor. When mixed with OJ and Pineapple juice, makes the best Mai-Tai.

not a bad rum for the price.

Ethan,
I wasn't expecting this to be as dry as it was, and it is kind of a strong leather taste that I'm not used to, and is a little disappointing to me. It's not a bad rum by any means, just, wasn't what I was expecting or looking for.
 
Rodolfo
Rodolfo,
The leather flavor overpowers everything. Disappointed with it. Expecting to be able to drink it straight but needs something to mix it with.
 
Michael
Michael,
Looking over other reviews, I disagree with this being smooth. The taste is ok but there is a harsh aftertaste which overpowers any sipping enjoyment. In mixed drinks the harshness is softened with the blended ingredients of a cocktail especially sweet mixtures such as fruit juices, or simple syrup. Comparing it with Larga Vita another Caribbean Rum here on Flaviar, the Larga Vita easily is the winner in both taste and smoothness. Although not expensive if your buying this for a cocktail you can find less expensive rums that blend better. Although I made two purchases of this Rum. I can't recommend it for the reasons above.

Amy,
I know everyone says "X rum is a great rum for whiskey drinkers." This is so true for Ten To One's dark rum. It's SO whiskey-like! It's delicate and balanced with notes of oak and baking spices. Quite dry! Enjoyed sipping on it, but look forward to also trying it in a cocktail.

Nicholas,
Very smooth, amazing flavor profile, super easy to poor and drink a glass to unwind. Makes me feel like I’m on vacation, it’s a fan favorite of mine and my friends, will likely purchase again.
 
Paul
Paul,
This is a really good sipping rum. Smooth-esc...as in, not very spicy, not very hot either. Very good with a cube of ice and sitting back on deck watching the time roll by.
 
Eric
Eric,
Wow this rum is smooth. Goes down like nothing. That being said it lacked the dimension I look for in rum. My favorite so far is Afrohead 15 because it is so complex and strong on leather and tobacco. This had none of that. Would be a good mixer rum. Some as they come but lacking in flavor.
