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
Yeah, the 1796 is good. Really good. Best ever per my Venezuelan friends? Debatable, but I'd drink it anytime. It's one of the few I'll drink neat. Smooth. Really smooth (as long as your not shooting it!) and just a wonderful after taste that lingers for a long time. The after taste in this one is where it's at. Subtly sweet, nice cinnamon flavors light touch of caramel and vanilla, and a great spice that sits on the tongue. Strong, but not overbearing. It really is a delicious rum.
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.
Very nice, well balanced Rum with heaps of flavour. Enough to keep your interest for sure. A touch sweet but an easy to get along with drink.
When i bought this bottle, i don't know this brand. it's a very good balanced rhum a little bit less sweety than the diplomatico exclusiva with more personnality. oNe of my favorite this moment with the Dzama 1998
Tonight I opened my Santa Teresa 1796. Oaky aroma with a light Amber color. Visible legs on the glass. Taste is not sweet with mild spice and oak. Short finish. It is a good rum but I prefer them with a longer finish in my mouth.
This is an okay sipper but it leaves you wanting more. Slightly flat but different to the norm with its tatse. Add some ice and you will not be disappointed. If only you could do half a point.
"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."
