Santa Teresa 1796 rum

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.

Smooth, warm notes, I likes it best neat or with one ice cube.

While not my favorite sipper, it has its merits. Not as sweet as some I prefer, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Good ron if you like Diplomatico. Tried only once but probably my next ron when reserva exclusiva will end. I will refine my post later. Anyway, still a very straightforward ron, I guess you can't be disappointed with this one (if you tolerate sweetness in rhum of course).

Good rum, but there is nothing "extra" in it. I dont even remember its taste. This rum has no "signature" for me. But very drinkable.

Santa Teresa is right up my alley. This is a deep and satisfying sipping rum. Aromas of cedar and oak and quite a bit of medicinal notes up front. On the dry side which is good for me yet it still speaks rum with candied orange and molasas cookies. The second pour brings brownies and vanilla. But its not even close to being a sugar bomb.
At the $40 mark it's a simple presentation and thats another plus for me. A fancy bottle is fun to look at but it's whats inside that counts and I will happily count out 40 bucks for this nectar. Eye candy not needed.

Starts out with a nice oaky taste but ends off with a water taste

rum ottimo con rapporto qualità prezzo fantastico. Al palato si percepisce subito il sentore di legno e ciliegia e lascia un buon finale di cioccolato.

Buen ron , sin embargo esperaba algo mas en uno de los rones santa teresa mas elavorado, falta suavidad y textura, pero con hielo nos puede hace pasar una buena velada.

I am partial to sweet rums, and even if this is not a very sweet rum, is has a smoothness that makes it an easy sipper. Particularly when one lets it stand for a while before tasting. By all means recommended. A pity to mix or dilute this.

D'une très grande qualité et pureté. un top aromatique.

Questo Rum ha un fascino, ne ho bevuti tanti di rum solera, pero' questo Rum mi da un senso di genuinita' .
Nel palato lascia tracce di caramello, cannella e note lignee molto delicate.
Non e' un Rum troppo complesso al palato, molto piu' complessa e' la sua produzione visto che il metodo Solera prevede una specie di piramide fatta di filari di botti con Rum invecchiati con diverse anzianita' .
Il prezzo di questo Rum non e' eccessivo e sicuramente va provato.

Based on value and comments from this site, I looked to taste this rum for a while and finally found it at a rum bar in Florida. I must say that I was not disappointed at all. It's a mellow sipping rum with a very nice bouquet. For a rum in this price range, I highly recommend it.

Nose: Honey, cinnamon, brown sugar. Bananas, vanilla and a little smoke/incense. Some oak prickle and a little bit of pepper, maybe from the French oak?

Palate: Rounded and soft mouth feel. Dry but with taste of maple. Pineapple, dried tropical fruit (papaya, guava, mango) and banana again. Oak (some age showing), caramels and cinnamon again.

Finish: Dry, medium and fresh. Spicier than the palate with some candied stem ginger, cracked black pepper and a faint hint of something from the spice cabinet, maybe some cumin, cayenne or paprika.

Not as sweet as I normally like my rum, but definatelly a good rum that will suit most drinkers

I'm not too fan of Solera aged system rum but , this is a typical Venezuela flavor rum, perfect balance and molasses hints.
Santa Teresa 1796 married perfect with cigar or just alone.

Santa teresa 1796 no tengo otra manera de beberlo que con una roca de hielo y disfrutar de su sabor recomendado 100%

Posted over 4 years ago by Geno from Canada with 30 ratings

nice on the nose, nice on the tongue to start, but the rest, the finish, a bit harsh for a better word, for me anyway. I want to like it, the aging process sounds just right... but... never-the-less, a fine rum. Hoping it gets better each time, if so, I'll update my review.

Se trata de un ron notablemente seco, donde se aprecian notas de roble y frutos secos. Elaborado en: El Consejo, Estado Aragua, Venezuela.
