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.
Doux et riche j'adore ce rhum. Pas trop sucré il a un bel equilibr.
Sådär.... Säkert god i Cola
Très beau nez d'épices douces (cannelle, girofle, vanille), de caramel, de banane caramélisée, charbon de bois.
En bouche, la texture est presque sirupeuse, à boire et à manger ici.
Ça se gâte en gorge où il est brûlant en attaque, ce qui lui fait perdre des points pour nous. En allonge, il laisse place à une bonne dose de caramel, d'épices et une belle longueur.
Nice complex and aromatic and sweet nose.
Caramel and orange peel aromas. Spicy hints (nutmeg and cinnamon)
Sweet soft attack but very long peppery, smoky earthy finish (tourbe)
Power and elegance compared to its entry level black label
Santa teresa 1796 is unusual. Full front of the tongue taste and punch you in the mouth flavor. Everything tastes fresh. Freshly cut fruit, fresh cut flowers, fresh sugar....weird but brilliantly vibrant. Its unique, and that's unusual. Well worth the buy and after you wrap your head around it possibly higher rated than this.
On the nose is smells of raisin, and plum, while in the glass I get swirls of pepper and molasses with an abrupt finish. Very intriguing but not my style, though I have had several guests throughly enjoy it.
Dégusté à une journée d'intervale avec le pampero anniversario extra anejo, moins boisé, c'est un rhum plutôt doux, qui éxhale peu l'alcool avec une finale longue. Delicious.
I must admit, I only hat a few sips at a rum tasting with some friends of mine. But I was really disappointed. This rum is very flat, with no body and no soul. (Of course, I do not know, how my friend has treated his bottle - maybe, if I bought one of these myself, I would judge this rum differently. I like the bottle, anyway.
Je m'attendais à mieux puisque beaucoup le compare au Diplomatico. Au final, un rhum un peut trop "alcoolisé" à mon gout qui gâche un peu les saveurs. Il reste tout de même un bon rhum mais pour le prix je préfère nettement le Diplomatico.
Nice, dry, non-sweet. Not as good as the rum named in the heading IMO
Cool bottle,nice price and a spicy rum. This is a very good buy in the middle class together with Diplomatico Reserva etc..
Was really interested in this one with it's aging using the solera method. Really like this rum as is not too sweet and has some nice spice notes and lingering finish. A drop of water opens it up.
This is a sweet rum--and a solera, too--in the vein of Ron Zacapa 23. It's very smooth and mildly complex. I think it's a great place for people to start if they don't really like sipping spirits straight. However, I can see myself already tiring of this style.
Ostrejsi, silnejsi rum s vyraunejsi chut, neni tak sladky
Agréable mais trop caramel pour moi. Â reesayer peut être dans d'autres circonstances.
No too strong and does not give special flavors but Santa Teresa 1796 follows the classical school of rums!, and on the rock will work.
When I finally got some, it just wasn't what I expected. I will give it time and come back to this one. Maybe my taste buds will mature... or something like that?
As the diplomatico I really like this rum, don't know if it's the way to make it in Venezuela but the flavours and strength are really well balanced, one of my top sipper.
I prefer sweet rums, this is fine but ED12 was better.
Let's say 7.5/10
I have seen the reviews where people say to add a little bit of water to this to unleash the flavors. I did not do this, rather I also like a big ice ball and let it slowly melt in the water while cooling the rum. For me, this one really didn't do anything. It was smooth, but didn't have any hints of flavors that I really like in other rums. But I will still go 7 for the smoothness.
greât taste powerful rhum ans dry finish really Like it
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.
Reminds me a bit of the Pampero ,it lacks the bite of the Selecto and a wonderful ,fairly complex, not to sweet rum. Hints of Cocoa,Cofffee but it also mixed with reminders of the solera System which use to produce sweeter rums. A great choice
not so sweet like Diplomatico 12, reminds me Pampero Anniversario in palate, ....smooth, thick, pleasant.
When I first received this bottle, I opened the canister and the smell reminded me of church (the candle wax around the cork lid).
The time I tried it (neat) I wasn't overly impressed; strong spice smell and taste which was making it hard to smell or taste anything else.
The next time I added a little water and it opened the drink right up.
I do like this stuff but for me it requires a touch of water to enjoy it fully.
