This is a nice complex rum with a variety of flavors. This should be enjoyed neat or on the rocks. The only complaint is the price point. For $10 less I can get some Ron Zacapa, which is just as good, and may be better as far as the aromatics are concerned.

Its nice... sweet... little bit spicy and fruity and with woody taste... somewhere in my lower top 10 (6-7) with diplomatico reserva exclusiva at the top.

while other Venezuelan rums have suffered quality issues (not surprisingly), ST1796 has maintained its credentials as a super, additive-free rum drinker's rum.

This rum suprised me, it has strong body, qualite alcohol tail, strong aroma, still you can find smoothness in the taste.

Great rum and very easy to drink neat. Lots of Carmel notes and light oak.

An incredible rum for a reasonable price - really smooth and easy to sip straight or on ice. Loved it!

I am new to the world of aged Rums and must add that I like to sip on aged Rum rather than mixing it. I recently purchased a bottle of Santa Teresa 1796 Rum from our local Liquor outlet. Having minimal experience with Rums I was pleasantly surprised at the profile of this Rum, which was not at all what I had expected. The aroma was sweet with flavours of molasses, butterscotch as well as oak being detected. In the mouth this Rum, while sweeter than my previous tasting with St. Nicholas Abbey Rums, but not overly sweet and was very flavourful. A nice sipper Rum to add to my collection and, best of all, it is very affordable.

Un profumo indimenticabile con un forte sentore di ciliegie e frutti rossi. Amabile con finale medio corto. Delizioso

ST 1976 is similar to Mount Gay Extra Old, but with a little more depth of flavor. With little/no added sugar, this is a solid, dependable, dry sipping rum that's WAY better than its neighbors Diplomatico and Pampero.

Recommended neat, or in a Rum Old Fashioned.

I hope to revisit this review after further tasting.

7+, 8-

If you're into dry Rum this might just be the ticket. Personally, I don't like it that much but I can't give it anything below 7 because it is fullbodied & complex. But it is so dry that I find the finish almost Dry Martini-esque.

I prefer Rums like El Dorado 15 which have lots of added sugar (but are still well balanced and don't taste like a rum liqueur). For dry-rum purists who insist that added sugar will 'mask' a Rum's character the Santa Teresa 1796 is perfect.

It has a lot to offer but not quite my thing.

I'm partial to drier rums and this certainly fits the bill. As others have said a very balanced rum. So many flavors dance on the pallette. Vanilla, molasses, honey, butterscotch with a faint tint of tobacco. Well done and at a ridiculously low price point
