Nice dark amber color and great smell. Has a nice smooth taste, the only downside is it leaves a lingering burn. I like to sip rum and this one is a nice sipper as long as you are ok with the burn.

This rum starts out with, Spank my booty and call me Martha but ends on a very flat note. Nice Mouth but the finish is a bit disappointing. Update, this rum has been sitting in the back of my rum cabinet just collecting dust, pulled it out for a dram and let it sit and breathe for 10-15 minutes and holy mackerel it has blossomed into a whole new drink. Very nice and excellent overall. Very smooth and silky.

The best rum around. The way the rum should be. This is a rum that rank with others at half the price.

I found this rum to be a bit too dry and it felt like it was too young. Not much to offer.

Had myself a tasting with the Angostura 1824, Atlantico and Santa Teresa 1796 and the problem for me was that I couldn't quite decide the better of the three. I found them too similar.

Not as full-on flavoured as say Diplomatico Reserva, but the flavour comes more in the form of subtly sweet okay notes, and might be one of the most easy to drink rums I've had. Has absolutely no afterburn and is exceptionally smooth, if it was cheaper I could easily see myself necking most of a bottle in a night.

Beautiful fragrant smell, smooth and pure taste. Points for the story and bigger picture. Best overall rum I have had to date.

Un rom decent, fara ceva deosebit, seamana cu Flor de Cana, aspru, corpolent, cu gust de butoi foarte proeminent.

Un profil aromatique sur un boisé très présent mais qui se marie parfaitement avec ses notes de caramel et de crème pâtissière. Il reste cependant assez sec. Il s'agit ici du seul rhum que je bois sur glace car je trouve que ça le sublime vraiment.

I really enjoyed this rum , reminded me of Matusalem 15 (but better) and Millonario 15 (but not as sweet).
Not a great deal of nose but a nice golden colour when poured. Very easy to sip neat and also with ice. Tried also with cola but didn't get any taste improvement. Gentle burn and nice exit , would buy again as quite reasonable.

An excellent Venezuelan rum, to be permanent part of my "active collection" (my 10 best). I love this rum, and I believe is the best representative of Venezuelan rums.
