SANTA TERESA 1796 RUM RON ANTIGUO DE SOLERA VENEZUELA
The first couple of whiffs pick up toasty notes of caramel, almond butter, cotton candy and very old oak; with aeration, more profound aromas develop including saddle leather, vanilla, Sherry and dark caramel. Palate entry is perfectly balanced and sweet; by midpalate the flavor profile is honeyed, slightly cocoa-like, buttery to the feel and utterly decadent. Finishes long, layered, creamy and dark chocolate bittersweet.” 98 Points, Editor’s Choice, Wine Enthusiast
This rum is the end result of a staggered barrel-aging process by which a fraction of a cask is transferred successively to the next. It undergoes aging in a total of four separate casks and results in a gorgeous reddish hue in the rum. The taste consists of strong dark cherry and raisin notes, and opens up with time in your glass.
