Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
It’s a good rhum to mix with coke and lime. Made me fall in love with rhum and cokes. With no mixer, it can be a but rough.
Me encanta el contraste de la dureza y el dulzor que queda al final del trago, todavía más cuando el litro sale a 7'5€ aunque para tomarlo solo o con hielo prefiero otros que salen por algo más.
Not sure why so many rate this quite low. It’s nice enough to sip and mix.
Conseguirás un gran combinado de ron con refresco de cola.
Que cosa mas rica por dios!!!!!!!
A workhorse, slightly better than Brugal Añejo, but similar; and quite a lot better than Barceló Añejo when mixed with Pepsi Max.
It would be my third option in this price range, after Legendario Elixir de Cuba and Matusalem Añejo.
Bought for 14€ in Spain
...but tastes great in a rum & coke. It’s a good value for a mixer but don’t expect much more than that.
Was expecting something built on the 1796, as it’s aged longer... it’s got more sweetness (it’s still not sweeeet) and flavour from spending longer in wood I suppose, but lost some of the light complexity in return for a little more weight and body in flavour.
I had the chance today to either replace my bottle of 1796 that lasted for five months or choose this cheaper little brother that I had never tried. When it came to $18 versus $44, this one won out and I just had to find out for myself if it is really as bad as many of the reviews say. For being only a few more dollars more than bottom shelf rums like Bacardi or Captain Morgan but having the Santa Teresa name, I figured that I could not lose.
It's dry. It burns slightly. It is very young. Is it horrible? Not really. It tastes like it was distilled a few hours ago and then had wood chips added for a couple of more hours. Somehow, it is smooth. It is by no means rot gut. For those on a tight budget and trying to break away from Bacardi and Captain Morgan, this rum was meant for you as your entry into the world of great rum distillers. However, it's older brother 1796 is definitely worth the extra money, but the two cannot even be compared except that both have the trademark Venezuelan quality. This one is also so cheap that one will never feel guilty about using it as a mixer or on the rocks, but neat just does not cut it. Since it is dry, feel free to tie one on and probably have no penalty the next day. It certainly tastes better than Don Q Cristal, which is the ultimate penalty free rum for getting drunk on.
Parfait pour un rhum n coke, ce rhum n'a rien de mieux à offrir
Otherwise don't bother. Slightly higher price for what you get. Better available for 20 quid out there
Very alcoholic and aggressive. Poor taste. Never again.
This is a pleasant mixer with coke and a slice of lime
Skúšal som si ho dať samotný, ale skoro mi oči vypadli. Príliš veľa alkoholu aj v nose, aj v ústach. Samotný len ako núdzové riešenie. Je tak maximálne dobrý ako malé vylepšenie Coly, ale fakt len malé. Na druhej strane, za takúto cenu sa nedá ani nedá nič viac očakávať. Ani neviem, kde som túto fľašu vyhrabal...=)
Mix your Santa Teresa Anejo with Coke and you get a pretty decent drink. Better yet, go straight to the much smoother Santa Teresa 1796 and you will get a pleasurable neat sipper.
Light amber, young rum that has little in common with it's older, much better, 1796 rum. This rum is aged to bring out some characteristics of a better rum but cut short to really allow this to be anything but a mid line mixer.
I must collect something, else i get crazy, so why not Rum?
The long legs give a hint to the sweet molasses start and the "aged up to 5 years" gives a hint to the rather astringent finish.
Really not good to have it simple, neither on ice.
Nicht gerade viel für einen Anejo, aber zum mixen taugt es.
In der Nase eher stechend.
Im Gaumen auch nicht gerade lieblich, etwas Vanille und Toffee.
Im Abgang ... etwas wie Brennsprit.
Not just much for an anejo, but to mix it's ok.
In the nose rather stinging pain.
In the palate awful, some vanilla and toffee.
The finish ... something like clenser.
Not a very good choice. You can smell a lot of alcohol in the glass and the taste is the same. A bit agressive. I wouldn't take this one again
Senza infamia e senza lode, rum commerciale, giusto mezzo gradino sopra i classici rum da mix.
Für diesen Preis kann man sich natürlich wirklich nicht viel erwarten
