Tasting Notes - Nose: The Solera method adds layers of bourbon and cognac aging along with complex yet harmonious notes, creating classic, dry, and complex blends of premium Venezuelan rum evolving in every sip.
Tasting Notes - Body: Santa Teresa 1796: rich, refined and unexpectedly dry taste that evolves in every sip.
Its rich, amber reddish color, delivers a fruity aroma, with notes of honey and dark chocolate. The flavour is mellow, yet complex. This rum offers tobacco and leather notes, toasted and smoky, and a well-rounded balance that can only be achieved through the Solera rum-making method. Santa Teresa 1796 Rum is full-bodied while remaining delicate, elegant and velvety. The finish evokes attributes borrowed from the oaks in which it aged.
How to Enjoy Best: Santa Teresa 1796 Rum is best served neat or with a few cubes of ice in a rocks glass. Tilt and turn the glass to release the flavors, then sip and savor. This refined Solera Rum can also be served in a range of classical cocktails such as the Old Fashioned, Negroni or Manhattan.
