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.

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.

Voici un rhum plutôt réussi, d'une grande richesse, même si au nez l'alcool semble agressif. Des parfums de banane flambée, de caramel, de vanille et une touche discrète et gourmande de crème patissière se révèlent agréablement en bouche; il est dommage cependant que sur la longueur l'alcool reprenne le dessus. Le résultat donne un rhum assez sec malgré les arômes délivrés. Pour les amateurs de ce type de rhum, il vaut le détour; il est cependant dommage que l'alcool ne soit pas mieux atténué, il aurait été digne d'un premium.

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.

Bon, je suis sentimental , et ce rhum est le premier que j'ai goûté et c'est celui la qui m'a fait passer dans le clan des amateurs de rhum. C'est grâce a ce rhum que j'ai découvert ce qu’étaient des bons rhums. C'est son parfum vanillé au nez et sa relative douceur en bouche qui m'a convaincu.

I like this one very much. I don't drink it every chance I get, but it rates up there with others at the $40 range. I keep it under my bar, since my bar top is covered with my go-to rums in the $20 and under range. I have luckily found many good rums in the range to keep me happy.

A la première dégustation, c’est un sévère 6 que j’avais attribué à ce rhum.
J’apprends à l’aimer avec le temps qui passe, au point que c’est actuellement le rhum que je consomme le plus.
Un peu moins sucré que d’autre rons, il fait preuve d’un bel équilibre douceur-puissance-longueur.
Le packaging est séduisant et avec son prix mini, c’est un rhum à posséder.

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

Eye
Copper, Some density. Tear is not as dense.

Nose
Some bit alcohol, Honey, Vanilla, some sugar, maple syrup, a little cocoa, some spicy.

Mouth
Not as dense, soft, end a little something sweet flavored alcoholic / bitter and dry, wooden souvenirs.

I enjoy it alone or with ice, but some Mai Tai use it as part of the combination of rum.

....et parfumé, a siroter sans peur, il est très accessible et très gourmand
peut être un peu cher, mais en cherchant sur le net on le trouve a bon prix.

its a nice balanced rum the spices bring out a very nice taste good for sipping

Posted about 5 years ago by rexet from France with 24 ratings

Le Santa Teresa fait parti de ces classiques à essayer une fois dans sa vie. Ce n'est pas ce qu'il y a de plus remarquable mais c'est parfaitement maîtrisé et agréable à siroter. On est sur des notes très vanillés avec beaucoup de fraîcheur et de la légèreté.

Good sipping rum. A bit pricey, there are better values out there.

Trošku menej sladký ako diplomatico, ale inak sa naň veľmi podobá. Naozaj skvelý rum.

Posted over 5 years ago by Dijkjes from Netherlands with 13 ratings

I personally really don't like the taste of this rum. It doesn't have his own flavor like el dorado 12 year or zacapa.
I really had high hopes of this rum but i nearly flushed it away.

A good sipping rum with a balanced well-rounded flavour. Very smooth with a nice long finish.
