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.
Recommendable to most
Santa Teresa 1796 is one of the best rum i have tasted, mix of perfect balance of spice that lingers, great smell, hints of oakhoney.molasses, vanilla and nutmeg.
Ive had 2 bottles of this, my second bottle tasted different then the first, maybe some quality control issue? Anyways either way its a decent bottle of rum but more of a mixer for me, its too rubbing alcoholish on the backend to be a sipper.
Very nice straight up. Subtle taste and not overly sweet. Unlike allot of South American Rums that l have had, this one is thin of the palette,which l prefer to syrupy.
Quite sherrywined, not much else going on. Some added sweetness. Simple and if you like this Hispanic style, ok to sip down.
A little hard to find, at least outside of duty free for me, but very good and well worth the cost. Definitely would recommend and buy again.
I am totally enjoying this rum from taking it out of its case to removing the wax seal and popping the cork. Drinking it neet was as good as on the rocks, there were very smooth tastes up front and lingered well. In a Dave Steib did not disappoint. Next stop for this rum is the flight of champions.
