Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
The smell never got better no matter how long it sat straight astringent nose. The first few sips were decent but slightly harsh it was not until I was a quarter thru the bottle it started tasting less harsh. This goes down easy in the throat but a bit dry. I could not detect much flavor or sweetness in it to be honest the dryness masked the flavors for me a bit of water did not help. I mixed it with some coke and that seemed to help out in terms of flavor. I ended up drinking the better part of the bottle in a sitting. I rate this highly because it gave me no ill feelings or hangover at all. With this bottle I consumed 2 cigars, a Triple whopper with cheese, bacon, ketchup, mustard, mayo, A double cheese burger no pickles, French fries, and 3 bbq chicken strips. Then I passed out and awoke early the next morning feeling great. Because of the no hangover effects I upgraded this from 7 to an 8.
This is the bottle that got me into rum. Not the best in any way, but gives a good starting point for what school of rum to go for.
Seems to me like a lot of oak and caramel. Sweet but not too much. Would give 6.5 as I'm not sure whether this one is better then Dictador 12 or not. More complex then Dictador 12 I think.
Good rum that presents well in its leather bag. I always bring to parties. It looks good and just about everyone likes the taste. Personally I find it a bit on the fake sweet side.
This is truly wonderful tasting Rum. Full of deep of delicious flavours, sweet but not yukky and comes in an impressive presentation leather pouch. One of the best I have tasted so far, and a reasonable price, but sadly I feel it lacks that X factor to make it a truly exceptional Rum.
Siempre lo tengo a mano, sobre todo porque donde vivo está a un precio que no supera los 15€ y para darme una alegría nunca me falta, no voy a deciros que sabe, solo que me gusta más que el presidente Martí 19 o el Zacapaca solera 23, a los que se valora mucho mejor y son sensiblemente más caros, no he probado los "top ten" de esta lista por eso no le doy un 10.
Uno de los grandes, mi tope en precio es de 30 eu, por debajo de este precio para mi el mejor es Pampero Aniversario, ni que decir tiene que los hay mejores, pero la diferencia de precio los hace prohibitivos, este es un magnífico Ron Venezolano, muy aromatico y equilibrado, de color tostado oscuro tirando a caoba, tiene un dulzor intenso y persistente en boca, se percibe claramente la madera y los frutos secos. Además ha ganado varias medallas.
Had a glass neat. Wasn't to impressed about it. Not a lot of taste. Having a glass with coke now and that makes a lot of difference! Really nice to mix!!
This has alot of rich wood flavor. Right sweetness and good flavors (vanilla, leather, brown sugar). This is one that will stayed replenished. Thanks!
A good solid rum from Pompero.
Nice, not too sweet.
The XO is also very good, heavier, and sweeter
Il rum Pampero Aniversario Reserva Exclusiva è una bevanda sorprendentemente di qualità per la sua fascia di prezzo!
Si tratta di un rum dal carattere forte, poco morbido al palato, ma comunque piacevole da sorbire, all'olfatto esprime tuttavia una gradevole dolce fragranza che va a scontrarsi con il gusto deciso e il finale di tabacco.
Forse non sarà il mio rum preferito, ma i suoi 35.-- CHF (stranamente l'ho trovato anche a soli 19.90€) circa li vale tutti e, in quella fascia di prezzo, non può di certo passare inosservato, visto anche il simpatico sacchetto in cuoio con cui arriva.
Za necelych 20 eur vyhra v loterii, v chuti lieskove oriesky, karamel, sladsi, ale nie prilis, pripomina mi Bermudez 12. Za mna urcite 8+
Doften är riktigt bra men smaken hänger inte riktigt med. Det saknas något och det blir en liten besvikelse.
The first time I drank this, I felt too much spice. But from the second time, I understand the taste of this rum. Now it is an essential rum for me.
Very nice rum with fruity taste and strong aftertaste. Nice balance of sweet and bitter.
Some green aromas in the nose with wood char, oak and vanilla. Quite fun to nose and smell, but still not a sipper for me. Tobacco and Toffee flavors yet overall "high-toned" in the finish then some alcohol kicks in, so not the smoothest on my pallet. Great as one of the 2 or 3 rums to use in Mai Tai or other Tikki drink.
Great nose that translates on the tongue. Lots of different tastes but not as much sweet as many rums as a sipper. A wonderful mixer that should take a great spot on your bar shelf.
pur mag ich ihn nicht. aber für den preis gibts eigentlich nichts zu meckern. positiv ist die verpackung:)
werde ihn nicht mehr kaufen zum mixen zu teuer und pur nicht mein geschmack.
Good rum, but not enough for an 8. I rate it at a 7.5. The bottle with the pouch looks really great
Taste on vanilla, chocolate, leather, cinamon and brown sugar.
I am in general in favor of rum from Venezuela. this small bulb bottle is already the third bottle of the same in my cabinet. light but nice taste, not too much of an after taste, I like it.
Smooth and subtle the taste sneaks up nicely as it goes down
Not my favourite. And we have it here twice (both are Reserva Exclusiva).
This rum is probably most known for its packaging, so I did not have the highest of hopes for the content within the bottle, but it actually turned out to be better than feared.
Nose: Caramel and coffee with a slightly nutty background
Taste: Molasses, cinnamon and a slight hint of tobacco in the back of the mouth
Overall: This will not change your view of what a great rum is, but it is a pleasant and non-complex rum, ideal for a night in with friends or for mixing in a Cuba Libre.
Pampero Aniversario Reserva Exclusiva has it all for a perfect evening. At first it has a smell of alcohol, but after a minute the smell of toffee and vanilla takes over. It tastes sweet and caramelly, with a smooth burn of alcohol. In the aftertaste a hint of tobacco.
