Santa Teresa 1796 rum

Solid aged rum. Good flavor. I can't find anything super distinctive about it good or bad.

Gave this one a try. Not really a fan, I felt it had more of a bourbon feel and finish than an aged rum. Will not try again, but damn straight I'll finish the bottle

On sent que ce rhum est travaillé, belle robe. Je m'attendais à Quelque chose de plus doux il reste vif

Tasted this one on holiday, sunny terras with a view on a small creek, on an island in the Mediterranean Sea, not quite the ideal circumstances to be objective but given these circumstances: quite a nice surprise Molasses , oak, hints of vanilla and nutmeg.

Picked up a bottle in Maryland for $43.60 including tax. Tasty rum, but I've had others in that price range that I like better.

I think that the young rums in the blend are poor enough that the older ones can't make up the slack. Sounds great on paper, but is only middle of the road in the glass.

To little smell.
Ok taste.
Aftertaste to harsh.

Okay Solera rum uit Venezuela. Niet al te veel smaak caramel, hout en een nogal aanwezige sherry smaak. Niet slecht.

En smule sprittet. vanilje og karamel duft forekommer med et strejf af noget friskt.
Smager frisk og sød. En smule røget med en eftersmag af brændt og fad

Very mainstream rum. Not a lot making it stand out from the rest. Too much burn and not very complex. A bit of a letdown.

Nez agréable mais très et trop fort en bouche. Long par la suite mais les arômes sont tués par l'alcool. Déçu.

So following the user manual, I have to give it only a 6. Wich is : " Tasty, but not quite great ".
I can' t say more about it. It' s a very average Rum, wich makes sense when you consider the price tag.
First approach : A quite strong smell of alcohol. It almost bites my nose, if I inhale too fast. Quite sweet though.
In the mouth : Very promising, sweet and tasty, I'll let you judge of the flavors....
Aftertaste : Well, disappointing... burn burn burn... Bitter bitter bitter... Not sweet anymore. And not in the good way, not subtle, not specially powerful.
I won't try it with Coke, cause I don t see the point, but well. First and last bottle.
My limited cabinet of 20 bottles will not allow Santa Teresa in...As soon as it's finished, I ll give a chance to a new challenger...
Cheers !

Märka tydligt att det är en solera, rätt lik zacapa 23. Balanserad men en aning mer spritsmak än vad zacapa har så det drar ner betyget en aning. Billigare men jag köper nog hellre zacapa än denna.

Santa Teresa Solera 1796 is het paradepaardje van het merk, het vlaggenschip, de koploper en de trots van de distilleerderij. Een uitzonderlijke rum in alle facetten, bijzonder rijk van smaak en verleidelijk van geur met een diepe kleur waar je in zou kunnen verdwalen.

De diepe mahonie kleur trekt direct de aandacht en maakt nieuwsgierig naar de inhoud, omringd door intense aroma’s van onder andere vanille, honing en kaneel met hints van sherry afkomstig van de vaten waar de rum in heeft gerijpt.

Het smakenpalet is voortreffelijk, donker fruit wordt gecombineerd met zalige tonen van sherry, karamel en overrijpe banaan die elkaar op speelse wijze afwisselen. Hints van nootmuskaat en kaneel met chocolade en tabak komen voorbij en geven de rum een lekkere, spannende draai. De smaaksensatie eindigt vervolgens in een lange en verfrissende afdronk van eikenhout en geroosterde noten.

Santa Teresa Solera 1796 wordt terecht gezien als één van de beste rum in zijn prijsklasse, de rum heeft dan ook de ongelofelijk hoge score van 96 punten mogen ontvangen van de Wine Enthusiast!

Jeg syntes den er uden smag eller kraft. Smager ikke rigtig af noget. Absolut ikke et genkøb.

A rum that i would figure would come right out of the old days. Strong yet balanced, with notes of oak, smoke, and with the solera method, it stays consistent. A definite member in my cabinet. With a nice macanudo cigar, it pairs great.

Light amber colour
Not much nose.
Pleasant in the mouth but restrained aromas along a cognac.
Very dry 1/5
Gentle burn, aromas do not linger.

Nice if you like a decent brandy but pales against something like a Foursquare special cask edition.

Rhum très sec avec un final trop fort dénaturant le goût.

un peu doux mais je lui trouve peu de goût , pas un mauvais rhum tout de même

Santa Teresa gets good ratings so I tried. Its good, but for $35, there are much better rums. Not buying this one again unless I get for $20.
