Unleash your inner mixologist and chef this summer with Cane Run rum

Updated on June 15, 2017

As most of the USA reaches tropical temperatures, it feels good to drink what has been a favorite beverage in the Caribbean for 400 years: fine sugar cane rum. With its unique flavor profile, you can really use your creativity when imagining new cocktails. Cane Run Estate Rum is a sugar cane product of Trinidad; I was happy to be hosted to experience it!

Sugar cane rum is quite the different spirit from the much more commonly seen molasses rum. Just like white sugar is worlds away from molasses, so are their corresponding distillations. Cane sugar rum has a clean, less sweet, brisker flavor than dark molasses rums you may be used to. You won't mistake it for other clear spirits -- the rum flavor still shines through -- but it doesn't have that heavy treacly flavor.

Can Run Estate Rum incorporates new, fresh rum with those aged up to 5 years, for a balance between heritage and modern spirit flavors. The liquid is filtered through charcoal for extra clarity.

I experienced a nose of wildflowers, cream of rice, warming almond.

Flavor-wise, I tasted a crisp, but buttery spirit. It's not overly sweet, but still has some white sugar notes. I also detected fresh mint and white pepper.

Their official tasting notes detect heavier, richer notes than I did:

Cane Run has the aroma of sweet, light brown sugar. Its taste is vanilla spice on the mid palate, and its finish is peppery spice, and mild, sweet molasses.

Not only is this a great canvas for modern cocktails -- however, it's not as heavy as those in traditional tiki drinks, in my opinion -- but also, you should consider it for interesting culinary creations! Think about sprinkling some on ceviche or smoked salmon. Add a bit into any chopped veggie/fruit salad where you'd use white vinegar and sugar, such as those cabbage and fruit or carrot slaws that need a little bite and a little sweetness. It would work with those savory watermelon-feta cheese-red onion salads. Any salad with slices of jalapeno would be a fabulous contrast with drizzles of the rum. I also like making an easy fruit marinade: ripe mango or peach sprinkled with the tiniest hint of white sugar, Cane Run Estate Rum and fresh peppermint.
