Santa Teresa 1796 Rum
Santa Teresa // Venezuela
Santa Teresa’s flagship release is a blend of rums ranging from 4 to 35 years. The rum is further aged using the solera process, with four levels of oak barrels that had been traditionally reserved for Spanish sherry and brandy. The 1796 was first released in 1996 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the estate’s founding.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
"The sweet and fruity nose offers honey, caramel, dark chocolate and oak. The full-bodied, buttery palate gives vanilla, honey and plantains with notes of coffee and oak. The smooth finish has more vanilla and oak, with bitter chocolate, coconut, sherry and light smoke."
