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
If anyone is new to exploring rums, i would say this is a very safe option as one to begin with because it is not overly sweet and not overly dry. I find it to be bang in the middle and pretty enjoyable to drink too. Only reason it is not higher is because it doesn't stand out massively to me but perhaps the more i drink, the more i will like it.
I will say the aroma of this is second to none. It has a brilliance of its own, and should be treated as such. It does open up, and has a bit of an overwhelming essence upon opening, but relaxes a great deal with a cube of ice. (blasphemy I'm aware), but I feel this Is warranted for such a full bodied heavy ester rum. Very little, if any reflux takes place in this distillation, as it is heavy on oils and is wet on the tongue.
You cannot go wrong with this bottle.
My first real taste of quality rum! It's a perfect balance of flavors and goes great with some lime. I'd give it a 10 but I don't have enough experience yet.
This rum is a very good rum. It is not too sweet contrarily to many south american rum and has a very good taste though it has not a very long persistence in mouth. This is definitely a very good bargain for the price !!
"On the nose there’s a lovely dark profile. Fresh ground coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, vanilla, plums. There are some tropical fruits like pineapple and passion fruit, followed by a slight grassy note. Nutmeg, old leather, tobacco and white pepper. On the palate it goes down so easy. Milk chocolate, vanilla, honey, mango, toffee and cashews. Canned pineapple, blackcurrant, coconut cream and coca cola. The tobacco note is back along with some cinnamon. Not crazy sweet, fairly well balanced and easy going. Cocoa butter and orange marmalade. Towards the end is where you get a bit more oak spices and some alcohol heat. The finish is short with cocoa nibs, some oak tannins and maple syrup."
