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.
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.
Such a nice rum. I'll make sure to always have one
I visited the distillery in Venezuela though I didn’t like rhum. This one changed my mind and made me fall in love with rhum. The smell is great and the taste as well! Some bottles though tend to be more aggressive when you take a sip and then the rhum shows up.
Oak vanille smell, first sweet caramel taste and straight after a strong harsh alcohol taste. Aftertaste is also sweet again. Colour is good, nice brown. Overall a nice rum to sip on
Un rum di alto livello, ma caratterizzato da una leggerezza che lo rende molto più beverino di altri suoi concorrenti
With an amber color, the nose is sweet.
On the first touch of the palate there is also a slight sweetness, not as robust as the nose. The feel on the tongue is a rich complex character.
If added with ice, the richness fades quickly as does the slight sweetness
Dry, smoke, oak and full bodied. Reminds me of a Flor De Cana.
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.
Solid sipper - liked it with one ice cube and some lime around the rim....
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.
Rum molto scuro e molto saporito, si sente molto il caramello e la vaniglia, la bottiglia è sigillata con la ceralacca
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.
A nice bit of flavor but still has a bit of a burn at the end. It's in my top 5 for sure.
As the first reviewer "Brad" states, this starts off as a wonderful tasting Rum, but there is ... in my opinion too, an unpleasant bitter aftertaste with a strong alcohol burn, and not in a pleasant way. I really wanted to like this Rum after reading other reviews, but considering the price, I am a more than a bit disappointed. Much better Rums to be had in this price range, I won't be buying this again.
I do not know which one is better, love both Zacapa 23 and this one.
This is essentially the same as the diplomatico vintage series. Very good. Sweet, complex, but not a cocktail in a shot
Where to begin? The color? The sweet nose? The tasty body? The salty aftertaste? Unic. A good choice. Not to be mixed.
Not too complex, alcohol presence in taste and smell is strong but get if you leaeve it a minute in the glass it gets better. Very balanced, not sweet, not dry, no long aftertaste. Kind of a serious pure old rum thing. If you are not into sweeter and more complex rums like Diplomatico or El Dorado this could be your choice. Have not tried it mixed as the price is considerable, but can image it would make a more than decent Cuba Libre.
This is my first Rum in the Laka Lono Rum Club. I can't remember must about it, so I will need to go back.
Nice,but a bit sweet,the price was good.good to let it breath a bit
What a wonderful aroma, and taste. Smooth and tasteful. One of my favorites so far
