Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Pampero Aniversario was first crafted in 1963 to commemorate the Pampero company’s 25th anniversary. The rum is a blend of rums ranging in maturity from four to six years and aged in whisky and bourbon barrels.
The Pampero distillery was founded by Alejandro Hernández of Venezuela in 1938. The brand is now a division of the world’s largest liquor holding company, Diageo.
Love this Rum, it has became one of my favorites. Love the rich taste... highly recommend it
A 8 year age rum, solid with a very complex sensory notes, round and balanced, at sight its deep amber color shows us its long, its intense but deep with complex aroma of wood, vaibilla, caramel, dried fruits and chocolate, is the art of blending, winner 5 times gold medal in San Francisco World Spirits Competition
Straight or over 1 large ice cube, this is great to mellow-out of an evening. A dollop in your black coffee isn't bad, either
This is a delightfully dark sipping rum that has a great finish! I love the lite fruity and slightly vanilla taste. This rum equals or surpasses many higher priced rums. Definitely worth having on hand.
Lovely deep amber-red colour. Slightly oaky, butterscotch notes. Lightly fruity, some leather, nutty. Smooth, sweet. No burn. Soft... As it fades, there is a very light tobacco note. This rum is so fine, it would be a shame to mix it.
A wonderful sipping rum from Venezuela, a country with a history of producing high quality rums. Slight burn with hints of molasses and oak. very slight hint of vanilla. no need to let it rest and should not be mixed. drunk straight or with ice will brings out the true nature of this rum. a bargain for the US$30 bill which is roughly $3,500,000 Venezuelan dollars.
Pampero Aniversario is one of the rums I "cut my teeth" on when I first began exploring sipping rums.
I very much enjoy the leather, spiciness, oak, vanilla, molasses flavors and smooth finish.
Highly recommend to all!
Awesome nutty and sweet taste. Cant go wrong with this sipping rum. Do not waste by mixing it. An ice cube will help tone down its sweetness.
Amongst my fave rums excellent stuff
Little burn as this extraordinary sipper falls effortlessly over your tongue.
I've got a bottle of this rum about 30 years ago from my then ex-girlfriend as a goodbye present when she found her love for live in Venezuela. The rum was delicious so it was kind of fair enough. It was the first rum that was not that white Bacardi stuff that you could only drink mixerd with coke. That first bottle lasted quite long because I only took some on special occasions and sipped it very slowly. But inevitably there comes the moment when every bottle is empty. But the Pampero Anniversario imprinted my love for good Rums in my brain. A bit more than 15 years later I started my first rum collection and one store in town had (still has) an impressive selection of all kinds of spirits including very nice rums. One time I told the shop owner that the Pampero Anniversario would make a excellent addition to his rum section and some 1-2 months later there it was in the shelf! They had an open bottle for tasting and I immediately remembered the dense, almost oily texture and the delicious taste of sugar cane and some vanilla, ripe fruits with a hint of orange that immediately spreaded over my mouth mucosa without being either too sharp or too sweet. Very well balanced. The color is pretty dark brown copper. Just a week ago I discovered the Pampero Anniversario in a large supermarket at a reasonable price and right now I'm sipping and sniffing on a glass of it.
I thought the Pampero Anniversario would make a rather good first rating here and I promise that my upcoming ratings won't be this long! Just one last thing: I don't quite understand the difference between the Pampero Anniversario and the Pampero Anniversario Reserva Exclusiva, as "Reserva Exclusivo" is even written on both labels. My guess is that they are actually both the same. Can someone teach me better?
I was looking for a rum upgrade for my hurricanes and jungle birds and I couldn't be happier. This rum has a deep, complex flavor that makes it an amazing sipper and capable of adding delicious complexity to already flavorful cocktails. It has a mustiness and a woodiness that add expertly to it's deep molasses base, with everything balancing out. I bought a bottle for a tiki party and it was gone before the night was over (the only rum I can say that about).
Nice smooth sipping rum, like a more upmarket Chairman's Reserve. No alcohol burn but leaves a nice lasting warm belly sensation
So far only Venezuelan rum I can find in states
Pampero Aniversario Reserva Exclusiva used to be on my Top 10 out of well over 700 aged rums for years, but several new findings have dropped it to the Top 20 list. Pampero has plenty of traditional aged rum flavors, hardly any burn and would be a great addition to your rum collection. Blind test Pampero Aniversario Reserva Exclusiva with the Bacoo 12 year old and I will get you have a hard time figuring which is which.

Pampero Aniversario, venezuelský skvost vyráběný od roku 1963, kdy byl společností Pampero uveden na trh u příležitosti 25. výročí firmy, zraje v dubových sudech 4-6 let, ( a ne 8, jak chybně můžete najít na stránkách některých českých prodejců).Obsah alkoholu je 40%, obsah lahve 0,7 litru.
Prodává se v pěkném koženém pytlíku, v němž najdete soudkovitou láhev s pečetí s logem firmy. Logo firmy znázorňuje gauča, pasáka dobytka z pampy, odtud pochází také název Pamero.
Aroma: Rum Pampero Aniversario je velmi tmavý, v lahvi až mahagonové barvy, ve sklence je přece jen průsvitnější, řekl bych kaštanový odstín.
Opojná vůně se line z lahve už při nalévání. V krásně vyzrálé vůni cítím máslový karamel, tmavou melasu, vanilku, snad trošku dřevo. Úplně láká k napití.
Chuť: V chuti objevíte po prvním až máslovém dojmu karamel, dřevo, kávu, nasládlé koření, dozvuk je krásně hřejivý a kořenitý.
Shrnutí: Stálice mého baru, jako plus je velmi přijatelná cena.
Tento rum má ze začátku zvláštní dochuť , v půlce láhve mi ta chuť zachutnala a nyní je to jeden z mých nejoblíbenějších rumů .
This rum is fantastic if you like woody, smoky sweet and caramel all in one. There is really nothing that compares to this flavor wise. Other rums gravitate around it, but I personally like very much the blend of flavors this rum offers. The only other rum that compares to this one flavor wise is the Kirk and Sweeney's either the 12 or 18 year old. This is how I rank them:
- K&S 12: 7
- K&S 18: 8
- Pampero Aniversario: 9
Beautiful color led me to beleive this could rival the el Dorado's for flavor. It was slightly disappointing though based on the beautiful reddish black. It has nice molassas and vanilla with a little bit of butterscotch on the nose and just a hint of oak spice. There is something I cannot place when I swirl it covered and then sniff. Almost a buttery nougat or toffee. Very light on the palate with a tinge of bite. It finishes very smooth giving more molassas and vanilla. A little bit of clove and burnt sugar were also present. Very good sipper and I highly recommend it as a change up. Tried it again and wow. The spices you.get just holding it in your mouth are great. Try to enjoy it slowly and really switch it around.
one of my favourite rums, lovely with coke and a slice of lime
About $30 a bottle at my local liquor store. Nice vanilla note, not too smooth or sweet like a spiced rum - still has a little bite. A good daily sipper. I typically go neat with everything I drink.
A rich flavorful dark rum that's easy drinking. Recommend trying it in the "El Ritual," the traditional drink of Venezuela.
Pampero is not maybe rich in taste but has something alluring, simplicity sometimes is the key. Also it has this wodden hint that I love and search in rums, and it is not very expensive.
Final verdict: Maybe some day I will give it another shot
