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.
Santa Teresa 1796 is a solera rum from Venezuela.
Nose is very soft and has some toffee and hints of spices.
Body is rather dry and very well balanced. It has a great combination of fruits, wood, cacao and some tabaco. Compaired to many other solera rums Santa Teresa 1796 is less sweet. It has an interesting character and is a very nice heavy sipping rum.
Its finish is very soft but rather short and less intensive compared to others in its (price) range.
Santa Teresa is a good pick if you´re looking for something less sweet with lots of flavours at a really fair price.
I ordered a bottle online and was very happy that I did. I saw some good reviews and this is a very solid sipping rum. I would put it up with any rum in its price class.
"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."
