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.
Un rum tra i più siceri provati fino'ra.
Pochissimo zucchero aggiunto, colore ambrato e profumi che aumentano con il calore della mano.
Profumo: melassa, poi poco caramello e un finale di legno e fumo.
Sapore: sincero, diretto. Man mano che si scalda perde forza l'alcool per fare posto ai profumi. Poco liquoroso e molto schietto nel sapore e nei profumi. Tenace la persistenza alcolica e la leggera acidità.
Prezzo/qualità: a 29-33€ su Amazon è un best buy per chi cerca un rum diverso dai soliti, liquorosi e con molto zuccheroa ggiunto. Ideale per testare qualcosa di semplice e diretto.
Solid aged rum. Good flavor. I can't find anything super distinctive about it good or bad.
A spicy nose that does not overpower yet lingers to add to the sipping. Spice carries through increasing the overall depth of taste as you get past that first burn. Flavor grew in both cola and citrus mixers for a wonderful treat. Not my favorite sipper but different enough to keep a bottle around for a change or special cocktail.
I like this one good taste, not to heavy in the after taste. once some other bottles are finished, I will add one to my rum cabinet.
Just a wonderful sipper. Doesn't disappoint, very good value.
Le Santa Teresa 1796 est vraiment agréable en bouche et à l'odeur. Avec un cigare, il est très sympa.
Je ne sais pas qu'en penser. Je le trouve un peu commun, mais pas désagréable. Ni trop sucré, ni trop raide.
Very good rum, not too sweet but with a little too much alcohol in the after taste
Dark brown color pleases the eye. Nose carries notes of butterscotch that is delicate and enticing. Caramelized sugar on the tongue. Very smooth. The finish is long and pleasant. This is a great sipping rum! One of my favorites!
It has a certain depth of flavour, and may suit some palates. I didn't find it completely unpleasant, but it didn't do a lot for me.
...the smell, after letting it breathe for 10 to 15 minutes is very pleasant and luscious.
The tastes itself gives you a at first quick but early vanishing burn, the taste itself soothes very fast (may be even to fast), that leaves you wondering if that was already all. Do not get me wrong, it tastes good, suppose to not be sugared making it an honest tasty rum...yet still thinking " it could be better".
For the offered price a good bargain and not a bad buy.
I find Santa Teresa 1796 kind of middle of the road for a sipping rum. Pleasant enough flavor, but not exciting. O.K. aftertaste, but again nothing exciting. I don;t find it terribly interesting in any direction. I could drink it all night, but why would I when I like many other in and less than the price point.
"One of the best rums of South America" they said. I dont know. Walomeh for me. Weird taste.
I much prefer Ron Zacapa 23, XO or Ron Centenario 20 for their fuller flavor and smoothness. Santa Teresa 1796 has considerably less body, smoothness, and comes across as “dry”.
Disappointed in this bottle, it has less body than similar priced brands. There is a distinct aftertaste that is slightly burned.
This is a delicious rum from start to finish. Somewhat sweet with nice butterscotch tones to it. Does make my tongue tingle. This is my go-to Rum. This is in my top 5 with Vizcaya VXOP , Plantation XO 20th Anniversary, Zafra 21 and Kirk and Sweeney 23 as my official sipping rums.
This is another great rum to come out of Venezuela. It has a really nice balance and lends itself to be a really nice sipper. It is also my go to for a whiskey forward cocktail when I want to substitute I a good rum!
It is not a sipping rum by any means, it is a good rum to be mixed with coke.
Rum má velmi neobvyklou chuť s jasně patrným nádechem sladkého ovoce, v Evropě je bohužel zastíněn populárnější značkou Diplomatico, byť je jeho kvalita srovnatelná.
Prachtige fles maar wat tegenvallende vlakke geur. Lang naar deze rum uitgekeken door z’n goede reputatie, maar echt top wordt ie nooit voor mij. Niet uitgesproken genoeg wellicht, kan er de vinger niet opleggen. Hele smakelijke maar geen topfavoriet.
I was expected way much more from this Rum.
When I was given one bottle I was very exited so greater was my deception.
Good nose but the ethanol is too strong to really appreciate the aromas, which seems interesting passed the ethanol. I read it in some previous comments, not all, so maybe it is not an issue on all the bottles.
I first tried this in Florida and have had it several times since. Maybe it was the beach atmosphere or the nice plantain and oak flavor, either way I love this rum!
Oui, c est un bon rhum, pas trop édulcoré, pas trop puissant, juste un peu trop facile, je prefere d autres rhums plus jouissifs.
The dry nutty, woody, caramel honey and molasses taste is quick on the tongue and lingers only slightly. It's the wood and dry nutty taste that remains, but It's slightly spoilt by a noticeable overtone of ethanol. For the money I expected better, but yet a good contender non the less. It will be a very devisive Rum. One you'll have to taste for yourself.
