Santa Teresa Rum announced the launch of Santa Teresa 1796 Speyside Cask Whisky Finish.
The limited-edition rum finished in Speyside whisky casks — curated by maestra ronera Nancy Duarte — marks the brand’s inaugural release within the exclusive triple-aged Solera Rum series, Santa Teresa 1796, the company says. With its captivating red-amber hue and bold notes of leather, damp smoke, dry spice and wood, it serves as an exquisite addition for whisky connoisseurs and those seeking a new and elegant experience, it adds.
Inspired by both Venezuela and the Scottish Highlands, Santa Teresa 1796 Speyside Whisky Cask Finish has been crafted using a rare 13-month finishing process in casks previously used for Speyside Whisky, the company notes. Its extended maturation, in conjunction with Santa Teresa 1796’s signature Solera Method, results in a drier, more balanced flavor, it says. Its palate reveals notes of toffee, sugarcane honey, malted barley, hints of apricot and dried fruits, caramelized almonds, and a touch of dark chocolate, culminating in a dry finish with a subtle black pepper tingle, it adds.
Packaged in a 750-ml bottle, the 46% ABV Santa Teresa 1796 Speyside Whisky Cask Finish is available to purchase both in-store and online at Drizly for a suggested retail price $49.99.
