Santa Teresa 1796 rum is produced in Venezuela and aged using the solera system that blends rums aged between 4 and 35 years. Before bottling, the rum is aged for a further year in large French oak casks to marry the blends.
This rum was first created in 1996 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the establishment of the distillery, the Santa Teresa Hacienda.
Recommendable to most
Well, not my style of rum. Bland, no richness, no dimensions! Dry.
Straight out of the bottle, very alcoholic. Once opened up, a little more enjoyable. Just not my jam.
This one was on someone's list of good rums for the price. I've been disappointed by most of these but I do like trying different bottles so my son and I bought it. First I was surprised that it was quite good. Secondly it seemed like I was drinking another Venezuelan rum I like, Diplomatico Special Reserve. At virtually the same price I like them both equally. Nice taste, pretty smooth and a reasonable price for a special occasion rum. Certainly too good to mix with anything.
I find it at € 30,00 and so I give it a try (twice, really). It's good, it's satisfying and sweet, but it lacks of personality and the satisfaction lasts not enough in your mouth.
ho trovato questo rum a € 30,00 così ho pensato di provarlo (due volte per la verità). E buono e soddisfacente e dolce. Ma manca di personalità e quella soddisfazione non dura abbastanza.
Un Ron que en general es perfecto para degustar a pequeños sorbos. Una mezcla de ron de columna y pot still, envejecido por el sistema de soleras.
En copa apreciamos un color rojo ámbar muy brillante, con una lagrima de densidad media.
En nariz podemos apreciar aromas a hoja de tabaco, vaina de vainilla, caramelo y un aroma a cognac aportado por las barricas. Es algo punzante en nariz para los 40° que tiene.
En boca la nota que más llama la atención es el quemazón y picante que te deja en boca, algo no muy normal en rones medianamente envejecidos y de una graduación no muy elevada. También se aprecian notas a fruta pasificada, pimienta blanca, nuez moscada, chocolate negro, final secante y amargo.
Otra de las pegas que le pondría es que añaden azúcar al producto final, aún no siendo una gran cantidad 7-8 gr/L es una práctica que no me gusta. Pero aún así para mi es un buen ron y lo tomaré de nuevo para ver si mi percepción se mantiene o cambia en algo.
It’s a beautiful colour in the glass, but my first impression was the ethanol on the tongue. Once it had warmed up a little, the deep, rich raisin flavours came out and it was a completely different drink. Pretty good.
This is a solid rum to be sure but there was a certain lacking quality for me. Santa Teresa lacked complexity for me. It was more on the dry, oaky side rather than rich, fruity and the viscosity was a tad thinner than I was expecting. That being said this stuff is smoother than all hell and nearly goes down like water. For the price point you could spend about 15-20 dollars for something you may enjoy more.
I feel like I should of bought a bottem self rum instead of wasting my money. Very rubbing alcohol taste. If you havent tasted top shelve rum you might like this. Nice bottle design
"On the nose there’s a lovely dark profile. Fresh ground coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, vanilla, plums. There are some tropical fruits like pineapple and passion fruit, followed by a slight grassy note. Nutmeg, old leather, tobacco and white pepper. On the palate it goes down so easy. Milk chocolate, vanilla, honey, mango, toffee and cashews. Canned pineapple, blackcurrant, coconut cream and coca cola. The tobacco note is back along with some cinnamon. Not crazy sweet, fairly well balanced and easy going. Cocoa butter and orange marmalade. Towards the end is where you get a bit more oak spices and some alcohol heat. The finish is short with cocoa nibs, some oak tannins and maple syrup."
