Default October 2012 - Santa Teresa Gran Reserva

After last month's rum that costs more than the annual rum budget of most visitors to this site, I'd happy to feature a rum that shouldn't be overlooked by anyone looking for a great rum that won't break the budget.

From Venezuela, a country known for great rums, comes Santa Teresa Gran Reserva. Best known for their flagship, 1796 Antiguo de Solera, Santa Teresa grows most of their own sugar cane and supplements that with sugar cane grown on a neighboring estate owned by family members. All of the cane is crushed at a sugar mill owned by the Vollmer family, who also own Santa Teresa. Every bottle of Santa Teresa rum is bottled by the Santa Teresa company ensuring a clear chain of accountability from the fields to the bottle in your hand.

Gran Reserva is a blend of rums aged up to five years in used American bourbon and whisky barrels. Despite being a great mixer, Gran Reserva should be tasted neat to really appreciate the rich dark fruit, spice and smoky oak flavors of this aged rum.
