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
Aye, this be a decent rum. On the nose, she be sweet with oak, vanilla, and caramel - standard rum fare - but there also be a hint of fruit, and a tiny bit of smoke/tobacco hidin' in the background. As for taste, she not be terribly complex OR as sweet as she smells. There be a quick hit of sweet, but then that turns into a bitter, twangy, wine/sherry flavor that lingers a bit too long. Beyond that, there be a distinct oak flavor with baking spices to boot. There be a little burn goin' down the hatch, but not so much as you'd notice after several sips. Might this be good for sippin'? Aye! More so if you have a penchant for wine or sherry hijackin' the flavor of an otherwise decent rum. arrgh!
This rum is super smooth. Not crazy sweet like some other rums. Enjoyed this neat. Theres a slight caramel taste but nothing that stands out too much. Evenly balanced rum. Would drink again.
I love Venezuelan rums, Santa Teresa is similar taste and flavors to Ron Pampero but not quite as good. Excellent straight, or with some ice, dark, rich, full bodied. Nice lingering flavors of island spices.
I have had my eye on this for quite a while and finally broke down and bought a bottle Wow, what a great rum Full body, very smooth, lingers in the mouth. Not a lot of added spices, just great rum taste. I will certainly have more of this.
"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."
