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
Santa Teresa gives you a very smooth and yet rich flavor! You can drink straight or on the rocks ... it is my first choice for Mojitos. It is well aged using best practices and blending methods with excellent aroma and texture. The entire family of rums provides a variety for different tastes and occasions--especially the "Ron Antiguo"
"Lovers of a deep, rich rum will savor the aromas of caramel, honey, walnut, and oak while flavors of toffee, mocha, and coconut come through cleanly. Those that honor tradition will appreciate the old-school labeling on the bottle and canister."
Like ambrosia from the gods, I suddenly realized the Santa Teresa 1796 is the most amazing legal substance of the twentieth century..... 30 dollars is the cheapest price ever. I brought some with me 407 923 4397
Not as full-on flavoured as say Diplomatico Reserva, but the flavour comes more in the form of subtly sweet okay notes, and might be one of the most easy to drink rums I've had. Has absolutely no afterburn and is exceptionally smooth, if it was cheaper I could easily see myself necking most of a bottle in a night.
I have drunk this rum for the last 25 years since I have been working in South America. It tastes like a top quality cognac, only smoother. For sipping, I consider this the ideal. Some rum lovers would probably say it is a "girl's rum" since the solar process makes it much smoother than Mount Gay XO. For mixing I would prefer the Mount Gay. The Santa Teresa you should drink pure and no ice. I recommend a cognac glass. This rum has been hard to get lately due to the political situation in Venezuela but seem to become available again.
"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."
