Recommendable to most
I got this on sale for $16, regular price was around $30 - it is in a plain glass bottle not the fancy one shown here. Nicely balanced, not overly sweet but lots of robust flavors to be had here. Tobacco, leather, smoke, with a nice woody finish that goes on for a while.
The nose is grapefruit, lemon, touch of tofee and oak, the taste is light, spicy, with bit of a an alcohol bite which adds slightly sour twist to the taste profile, all playing well together. Overall the rum is well crafted, without sugar or other additives, remids me of Bajan style. For the money I would appreciate some more aging here, more smoothness, richer taste with more wood, so there goes score seven. My bottle was narrow and tall, unlike the one on the picture.
I can't really recall details, it's been a while. But I enjoyed it so much, that I wanted another bottle ever since. It looks good on the shelf too
It’s a good rhum for the price. Pretty well balanced overall. Not the best Santa Teresa has to offer but still a good choice. Great with coke and lime too (sorry for the crime).
Not sure where I picked this one up, but the bottle reminds me of something out of the 1970s (and I know I did not have it that long). Enjoyed the rum's oaky flavor both over ice and mixed.
Debo decir es un ron agradable, con golpe alcohólico y sabor dulce, un poco aromático también. Sin embargo no es un ron selecto como reza el nombre, para mi es un ron ligero y medianamente recomendable.
Tried the Santa Teresa Selecto on a rainy day back-to-back with Oliver and Oliver 1985 Exquisito and I had to downgrade it from 9 to 8. The Selecto earns a strong 7. Its smoother than the much more easily available Santa Teresa 1796. Selecto has a semi dark color, quite sweet flavor to the nose, very mellow flavor profile at taste and a mild burn at the end.
