Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Really fantastic rum, I like the bend of aromas and tastes. good to enjoy the afternoon and relax.
Un rhum suave typé espagnol qui ravira vos sens...malheureusement un peu cher rapporté a des rhum de grande qualité. ?.
Nice dark amber color and great smell. Has a nice smooth taste, the only downside is it leaves a lingering burn. I like to sip rum and this one is a nice sipper as long as you are ok with the burn.
Doplici, doplici, doplici !!!!!
Apare jussi blong preunn.
My wife found this for my 40th and it was great way to celebrate a bottle you don,t want to finish (not easy to find) but want to keep drinking
I was not terribly impressed with this rum, especially at the price.for my money there's a ton of better runs out there.
I have had this on many occasions. It has much more alcohol in the aftertaste, which is not my everyday preference. Good taste and cool bottle
Note di degustazione
Santa Teresa 1796 commemora 2oo anniversario della distilleria. medio-ambrato mogano di colore, come ci si aspetterebbe da un rum che ha trascorso tanti anni nel rovere. Leggermente dolce, aromi hinting ben equilibrato di amarena e zucchero d'acero, ma non invadenti.sapori di quercia, fumo, un po 'di spezie cannella in un corpo medio che dà ogni indicazione questo rum è magistralmente realizzato con cura ben integrati. Si conclude con un lieve secchezza anice che indugia fino al prossimo sorso. Non potrei essere più d'accordo con l'autovalutazione del distillatore: ". Un rum, rotonda bouquet, ricco di aroma, sviluppato con le competenze e la tradizione di 200 anni di storia"
Good color, aroma, and body.
Preferably on the rocks.
Har helt sin egen smagsprofil, krydret og med megen frugt og friskhed, men alligevel knap så sød. Lidt henad cognac. Virker meget autentisk.
I am very undecided by this one. The first bottle I had bowled me over. I thought it was all the rum that I was ever looking for. But since then, it is more of a case of it being OK but nothing special. Where I loved the balance of spice and oak, the subsequent bottles left me feeling that it was all a little disjointed and forced.
Edit - I am wondering whether they blend has changed over the years. The first time I had it was some years ago but I can't believe that time alone would have changed my opinion so drastically.
Another edit: In July 2019, I was passing through Duty Free and picked up a litre bottle, mainly as I had not had it for a while. In all honesty I wish I hadn't. As I mentioned earlier, I cannot believe that this is the same blend as the first bottle I had. I know that the Solera uses rums aged between 4 and 35 years, and wonder whether they might be using more younger rums as it certainly seems (although memory might be playing tricks) a lot more commercial than it used to be.
En let, fyldig smag. Let sødme. Og bare super lækker!
This rum I feel is being held back. The notes are there, but aren't really forceful. I feel like they purposely hold it back to appeal to more people.
A fine rum. Not to sweet. A nice and slightly dry palate, but overall lacking a bit of body for my taste
It´s a nice rum but it doesn`t knock my socks off:-)
Excellent ron, great and sweet at nose, complex in mouth.
Has a light sweetnes to it with notes of vanilla and spices.
This is a nice complex rum with a variety of flavors. This should be enjoyed neat or on the rocks. The only complaint is the price point. For $10 less I can get some Ron Zacapa, which is just as good, and may be better as far as the aromatics are concerned.
I liked this rum, not one of my favourite but surely an intresting bottle. I found it better with a bit of water.
all the good things about the style
Lovely rum, with Good spice and a heavy bottom. Not too sweet. Add a sprink og Water, and The flavours comes to Life.
Lækker afvekslende rom, ikke så fed og sød, men tilgengæld dejlig krydret.
Et overvejende genkøb.
Dans la lignée du Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, ce rhum est doux et ample. Il ravira les débutants comme les connaisseurs de rhums de type espagnol.
