“Santa Teresa is considered the premium product from Venezuela compared to Diageo's Pampero and the eternally sweet Diplomatico/Botucal. Venezuela has its own style, which is rather strong for Spanish-style rums. Santa Teresa is probably the most elegant of the aforementioned rums, relying on an authentic solera process.Although the 1796 Solera also contains portions of heavy rums, the nose is very typical of Spanish style rums very light: little distillate, lots of wood and quite sweet caramel - much more lovely than the burnt bitternotes from Guyana. I also find something like coffee dissolved Nutella. In the mouth, the first thing I notice is the sweetness. There is definitely sugar in here. Otherwise, the profile is quite similar: coffee, milk chocolate, sweet caramel plus some coconut. Not unlike a sweet, light Foursquare. In the finish, the sugar glues the astringency shut, and the little bitterness that remains is immediately noticeable in a negative way.Compared to the Don Q Reserva 7, the Zuber in particular is noticeable in a negative way. Although the Santa Teresa is more powerful, the sweetness spoils the impression. It also lacks fruit to balance the wood.”
