Santa Teresa 1796 Rum: "Vanilla Cream Icing"

Santa Teresa 1796 seems to garner uniformly top ratings and exceeds the preferred $20-29 price range. Is it worthy and worth it? Largely - yes, but like Zacapa 23 perhaps a bit overrated. Or not. Let's see the reviews please...

Santa Teresa has a lovely, classic bottle and label you'll enjoy. Its color is a brilliant clear medium light amber. It's aroma is wonderful - a bit oakey, maybe a bit of cherrywood. But the feature is a deeper apricot vanilla, reminiscent of baked brown sugar. Teresa taste is entirely consistent, an apricot-vanilla cream or honey. Its finish is medium, warm, peppery and leaves a fruity aftertaste. I found this rum fresh and refreshing, like a nice Spring day.


Me:

I like Santa Teresa. It the brilliant and sparkling clarity of a great rum and exudes a very pleasant vanilla-honey/caramel aroma. Teresa's body is medium light and smooth, and its taste is consistent with the aroma, nicely balanced. The palate ends in astringency. Teresa's medium finish is very smooth, warm, and light peppery. An altogether easy rum to drink. Priced reasonably in the low to mid $30's, Santa Teresa is not a must, but is a very nice buy.

Rating (10 is best): 8

Have you had the Santa Teresa Selecto Anejo? I can't seem to find any meaningful reviews of this rum, I got a bottle on closeout from Shopper's Vineyard for $17 ($30 suggested) and I rather like it.

It's not in the fancy bottle seen here, but the name is the same

It gets a decent rating here

Capn's Log: Amazing! Two things. First, that the Selecto (3-10 years) and the Anejo (up to 5 years) both rate well, and both exhibit similar profiles. I daresay there's not much difference. We have long promoted the Santa Teresa Anejo Gran Reserva as a "best buy", and also as a "dangerous)" (way too easy to drink) rum.

And I know we long ago reviewed this rum, but guess what? Apparently never posted. Thanks for the reminder. Last, this was one of our first reviews, and is actually miscategorized (to be rectified real soon now, lol)...

I gave this rum 3 points (of five) because it's price tag is too high for a rum that is a good rum but is topped and or equalled by much lower cost rums. For me it's worth a try (most rums are Wink ) but too expensive.

I gave this a 4 because it falls into a nice category for me being a little sweeter than my driest rum with more stand out flavours. Price is higher than I like but probably 3/4 of my rums (all sweeter and likely adulterated) are at its price point or higher. Only a few fall below it. So a nice rum and one of my 3 rum starting points. This is the one that started me branching out in the rum world

Nice rum a bit pricey but worth it.
