NOSE: Fruity aroma with honey and dark chocolate notes.
TASTE: With a mellow yet complex flavor, this rum offers tobacco and leather notes, toasted and smoky. The rounded rum offers a balance that can only be achieved through the Solera method. It is full-bodied while remaining delicate, elegant and velvety. The end evokes attributes borrowed from the oaks in which it aged.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Balanced aromas of allspice, brown sugar and musk. The flavor is dry and dark with sweet spice flavors like cinnamon and star anise. The texture is smooth and even slightly suede. Pleasant finish of toasted spices. (Mar 2013)
Santa Teresa 1796 is the only aged rum that is produced in its entirety with the long-standing Solera method, an artisanal process using oak barrels that had been traditionally reserved for Spanish sherry and brandy. This round and firm-bodied rum is delicate with a complex and mellow flavor. It is best enjoyed on its own or with mineral water. The most demanding critics have listed the Santa Teresa 1796 Ultra Premium variety as ”the best rum in the world”.
