Honeyed single estate rum from Venezuela with elements of bitter chocolate, nuts and buttery biscuits. It is made, unusually for a rum, through the solera process: casks of different aged rums are stacked vertically, the oldest (aged around 35 years) at the bottom, and as the distiller draws rum from one cask they top it up with younger liquid from the blend. Santa Teresa 1796 was awarded Best in Category (Aged Rums 15+) at the International Cane Spirits Festival 2007 and is best enjoyed over ice or mixed with mineral water.

      Opens with toffee, brown sugar and vanilla aromas; dark chocolate and maple syrupy on the palate, with a dense richness; finishes with great length, a touch of pepper and developing complexity.

    Optional Rum

    I just bought a bottle last week. Honestly, it's lack of character and taste like a sweet whiskey. Disappointed...

    Worth it every time.

    One of the best rums I have had, made the mistake of letting people try it at Christmas and when I went back for another glass it was gone. Definitely going to be a staple in the rum cupboard!

    I agree with Simon: how could someone compare this with Diplomatico Reserva and Captain Morgan? Both are sugared monsters that appeal to people with a "sweet tooth", the type that can drink Vietnamese coffee without blinking an eyelid, (full of sugary, condensed milk). I agree, there are much better rums around, but to me, Santa Teresa is an old style rum made without vanilla and sugar additives that's very easy to drink on the rocks. Additives? what for? to hide the real taste?

    Was a little let down with this one, I have had a lot better rum's for a lot less. I'm not saying it's a bad rum as it is quite nice however, I will not be purchasing another bottle. Anyway it's another one to cross the list
