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.
Surprised this one has such a low score as I think it's one of the best bang for buck rums in my collection.
Solera aging with ex bourbon and French cask. No big age indication on it which is a good point.
Chocolate mousse drizzly with warm honey and lightly zest of orange on the nose. Good touch of cedar wood towards the end.
As on the palate, it's slightly dryer and lesser on body compare to nose. Lightly sweeten dark chocolate with macadamia nuts. It gets drier towards the end, tannic and touch of cedar wood.
Finish with cup of warm honey with slice of lemon. Dry cedar wood was prominent after a couple of seconds but it ended too soon.
Good to have it on its own or on an Old Fashioned with dash of Angostura bitters and 2 dashes of chocolate bitters.
Lived for 4 years in Caracas and never visited the hacienda.
Shame on me.
The beautiful colour in the glass is augmented by toffee tones with nice spicy aftertaste. Definitely underrated and worth every penny.
Un ron muy equilibrado, lleno de sabores, suave, seco, agradable en todo sentido.
Nice rich color with caramel notes and nose with the standard, honey, toffee, vanilla, and complex flavors of a good rum. This is particularly good on ice and tames down the sweetness a tad. This rum is smooth and a great after dinner sipper with a pleasant aroma. Probably would make an excellent mixer.
Decided to give this one a try recently & so glad I did. Really well balanced rum. Nice blend of molasses-y sweetness & a little spice, and very little burn.
All the serious rum drinkers i speak to, love this fine Rum.
Great sipping neat.
My opinion, but I cringe at the thought of putting cola in good rum (or even in crap rum).
Its nice... sweet... little bit spicy and fruity and with woody taste... somewhere in my lower top 10 (6-7) with diplomatico reserva exclusiva at the top.
Buon rum metodo solera, non mi ha entusiasmato. Un po' leggerino con retrogusto legnoso, corpo poco presente e finale veramente leggerino. Tende al dolce, bellissima la bottiglia.
Very nice rum reminds me Centenario and abluelo12. Recommend straight, without ice.
Almost Venezuelan rum is good, and this is my best rum in Venezuelan rums.
Very smooth, smells elegant, nice and sweetness.
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.
