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
This is a rum you can sip or mix and you will be happy with both
I would still prefer Diplomatic or El Dorado but this is a fine choice.
I drank this mixed at a Venezuelan wedding, had probably 20 rum and cokes that night. But I couldn't stop! Tried it many times after as a sipping rum. Also very enjoyable!
Very clean honest rum here. Nothing special though its been so highly blended that it really does not have anything that's stands out its nothing special but its not bad either. There isn't much bite here or complexity, its just a solera rum that's it nothing more. I would recommend this to someone just trying rum but to no one else.
Great spanish style rum, but that was "one night" adventure becouse I will choose something different with this money in my pocket that man need to spend for Santa Teresa.
More about the rum itself - rich deep flavour with lots from wooden side, semi sweet, no sugar bomb for sure, really nothing wrong with it.
This rum for me is a little lighter and the finish is a little long, harsher than the Gran Reserva from Diplomatico. The aroma is sweet, but on the palate it feels light, lack luster.

Still an ok sipping rum, but for the price, I'll get the Diplomatico.
Have to say it’s packaged in one of the best bottles, especially liked the waxed cork.
Golden colour, average legs on the glass.
At first sip I thought it was quite bland, very little of anything.
After 10 mins in the glass it was much better.
Very smooth, little if any burn and a pleasant wood, fruity and maybe coffee aftertaste.
£58 for a litre bottle at Gatwick airport.
Money well spent I think.
"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."
